Integrating and Automating IBM i Workflows with OpCon
IBM i is famous for its ability to Integrate workloads, why then do IBM i Operations and Admin very often get siloed? Why are IBM i workloads siloed?
The answer, that IBM i folk love to hear is that we are special and thanks to the passion of Dr Frank Soltis the IBM i is special but in today’s IT landscape being siloed can be a death sentence.
IBM i Schedulers can trigger workloads or interactions outside of the system, hence the growth of middleware and messaging agents, but when a batch job finishes, and you need to trigger a Cloud-based pricing update you want that update immediately. IBM i Operators regular stream jobs for efficient processing so why not extend this to non-IBM i workloads as well?
With OpCon IBM i Operations staff can fully integrate and control jobs running on Windows, Linux, AIX, Unix, Mainframe and in the Cloud as easily as they would on IBM i. Operators do not even need to logon to those systems and can control and manage jobs remotely. The ability to orchestrate workload across all platforms is incredibly powerful, call us to learn how a strong IBM i agent within OpCon provides access to all job parameters, full message management, dynamic variables, multi-step job scripting, operator reply and much more.
