Abstract: Ahlstrom-Munksjo (previously Expera Specialty Solutions) needed more functionality than provided by the native scheduler inside JD Edwards. While the JD Edwards internal scheduler can manage native batch processes; it is not built to accommodate enterprise-wide scheduling environments. They implemented Tidal Workload Automation and the JDE Adapter which allowed their users to define; launch; monitor; and control JDE processes using Universal Batch Engine (UBE); which is then used to execute these processes. It also enables their users to quickly resolve job failures; incorporate multiple cross-application dependencies; and utilize process models for JD Edwards UBE programs. In this session hosted by Diane Miller; you'll learn how Ahlstrom-Munksjo has brought job scheduling for JD Edwards solutions into an enterprise context and provides greater automation; visibility; control; and reliability to their enterprise.
