Release date: 5/12/2009

Company Recognized in Study by Leading Industry Analyst Firm For Its Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

MORRISTOWN, NJ (May 12, 2009) – Advanced Systems Concepts, Inc. (ASCI), maker of ActiveBatch® Job Scheduling Software and other solutions that enhance Windows™, UNIX, Linux and OpenVMS systems, announced today that the company has been positioned in the April, 2009 “Magic Quadrant for Job Scheduling”, a study published by industry research firm Gartner, Inc.
 
As stated in the study, “Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Job Scheduling evaluates vendors’ abilities to execute and their completeness of vision relative to a defined set of evaluation criteria regarding current and future market requirements.” Advanced Systems Concepts, presently focused on the distributed, heterogeneous systems/application environment, was positioned in the “niche players” quadrant.
 
“Advanced Systems Concepts is pleased to be in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Job Scheduling,” said Jim Manias, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Advanced Systems Concepts. “In our opinion, this inclusion underscores the increasing visibility ActiveBatch has attained in the global market. It is also our belief that this respected study will assist the decisions of many enterprises as they take advantage of a new phase in job automation evolution and value.”
 
“Magic Quadrant for Job Scheduling” (April 28, 2009), authored by Milind Govekar, Gartner Research VP, IT Operations, states that “Job-scheduling tools are in their next phase of transformation and evolution toward IT Workload Automation Broker (ITWAB) technology.” The study defines ITWAB as technology that is “designed to overcome the static nature of scheduling jobs. It has the ability to manage mixed workloads, based on business policies where resources are assigned and deassigned in an automated fashion to meet service-level objectives.”
 
ActiveBatch, a widely used enterprise job scheduling application for Windows, UNIX, Linux and OpenVMS platforms, is currently deployed at enterprises in 36 countries. The solution uniquely adds strategic business value by automating operations in real-time for improved IT operations throughout an organization. Enabling users to automate and centrally manage jobs and workflows across multiple and disparate operating systems, computing platforms, applications and databases, ActiveBatch is currently available in Version 7, offering a dynamic Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and related Web Services tools to support internal and external Web Services as part of scheduled workflows.
