Workload Automation for Windows 

ActiveBatch Workload Automation is tightly integrated with Microsoft Windows in its design. This makes it the perfect solution for organizations that need to take a centralized approach to automation within a Windows environment who also require key integrations with non-Windows systems, applications, and technologies.

ActiveBatch enables users to create and automate reliable complex workflows for business and IT processes faster and more reliably. ActiveBatch reduces the overall need for custom scripting, allowing for a lower overall cost of operations.

ActiveBatch leverages the Microsoft Windows Security model offering the option for users to utilize their current user accounts and groups from day one.

The ActiveBatch Integrated Jobs Library offers templated Job Steps for building workflows without custom script creation. Among the many Windows Job Steps are:

​ActiveBatch's powerful job scheduling capabilities include references, constraints, event triggers, monitoring, alerting, audits, and much more for the development of powerful and reliable workloads.

ActiveBatch allows developers to seamlessly integrate existing SQL Server jobs, SSIS packages, and stored procedures with, for example, Windows Task Scheduler, SAP, Informatica PowerCenter, and more as well as other Windows systems with non-Windows based applications, databases and technologies.

ActiveBatch's event-driven automation capabilities remove the need to manually trigger jobs across servers and removes the wait time between jobs so that job streams or plans can be initiated by various events. This can drastically improve service levels. Workflows can be triggered based on dynamic events (e.g. files arriving, being deleted or modified, emails with keywords or to specific accounts, MSMQ, web services, etc.) which saves time over the use of traditional date/time job scheduling.
