Xcel Energy Implements ActiveBatch

Xcel Energy chose ActiveBatch because it needed an IT automation solution that could handle a hybrid Windows/UNIX environment, with support for Linux platforms and Informatica PowerCenter:

  • Runtime monitoring allows Xcel to proactively monitor jobs and to take preemptive actions when a job is estimated to run longer than expected;
  • ActiveBatch’s alerting and error-handling framework will automatically restart any job that fails and will immediately notify the proper personnel;
  • ActiveBatch’s Integrated Jobs Library, with hundreds of prebuilt integrations, enabled Xcel to build cross-platform processes between PowerCenter, Windows, and UNIX;
  • ActiveBatch Job Variables automatically populate workflow parameters at runtime, ensuring accuracy and data quality.
