Release date: 9/14/2010

ASCI’s flagship job scheduling and workflow automation system now supports Informatica PowerCenter 9 Data Integration Platform; workflow scripting eliminated

MORRISTOWN, NJ – (September 14th, 2010) – Advanced Systems Concepts, Inc. (ASCI), maker of ActiveBatch® Workload Automation and Job Scheduling Software and other solutions that enhance Windows™, Linux, UNIX, z/OS and OpenVMS systems among others, announced today that it has become a member of the partnership program from Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software.  The move allows users of Informatica’s PowerCenter products to easily create robust job scheduling workflows involving both Informatica and non-Informatica processes using ActiveBatch, with no custom scripting necessary.

Deployed at enterprises in 40 countries, ActiveBatch is a cross-platform Workload Automation and Job Scheduling Software solution that is expert at all aspects of job scheduling, as well as the technologies that support a modern distributed job scheduling and Workload Automation system.  The application lets users automate and centrally manage disparate jobs and workflows, including tasks involving the most common operating systems, enterprise business applications and even Web Services

Soon to be available in Version 8, ActiveBatch offers both an event-based scheduling architecture and an Integrated Jobs Library of Informatica “production ready” job steps that helps users quickly and efficiently create and reuse templates and services.  Such job steps expedite the IT workload automation process without having to create and maintain custom scripts.  ActiveBatch processes can be easily integrated within Informatica activities using its drag-and-drop approach to workflow design.
“ActiveBatch excels at the most critical aspects of job scheduling.  In particular, it is adept at integrating applications like Informatica with other applications like SAP; with databases such as SQL Server or Oracle; and with technologies ranging from OpenPGP and Java to PowerShell and Web services,” said Jim Manias, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Advanced Systems Concepts.  “The inclusion of Informatica’s job steps in the ActiveBatch jobs library now makes it possible to quickly and easily manage Informatica’s integration with a host of top enterprise applications.”

“ActiveBatch and PowerCenter 9 offer Informatica users a new way to integrate their applications and data for greater business efficiency,” said Stuart Horne, Vice President, Worldwide Alliances, Informatica.  “ActiveBatch's robust event-based job scheduling capabilities, as well as its advanced jobs library, work well within the PowerCenter environment.  The result is excellent use of warehouse resources, reliable business data and easy workflow management.”

ActiveBatch’s ability to manage tasks within Informatica, SAP, Oracle, SQL Server and other enterprise platforms greatly simplifies job scheduling.  From one dashboard, users can create, modify, implement and monitor virtually any job task, avoiding individual schedulers and eliminating unnecessary scripting.  Users can trigger workflows based on events, other processes, date and time schedules and more; what’s more, ActiveBatch’s ability to utilize variables, dependencies and constraints such as file size or available disk space helps optimize job execution for maximum overall performance. 

ActiveBatch integration with Informatica is separately licensed as an extension of the ActiveBatch system.  For more information about ActiveBatch, including white papers and a free copy of a recent Advanced Systems Concepts, Inc.-commissioned study on the economic impact of ActiveBatch, log on to www.advsyscon.com.
