What is workload automation?

With workload automation you automate the planning, execution and management of tasks around business processes or transactions across different systems. This includes, for example, managing supply chains or processing information in real time.

 

Workload automation software coordinates and executes activities that move millions of data points across tens of thousands of processes within a complex landscape of on-premises and cloud-based applications and services – all from a single central point of control. The goal here is reliable, flexible, and high-performance automation at the core of the enterprise.

 

Increase efficiency and productivity

Companies that use workload automation to optimize their business areas benefit from a higher level of automation that helps them remain competitive in times of advancing digitization and automation. The resulting increase in efficiency and productivity contributes to company-wide success.

 

With the automation of IT processes and workflows, numerous tasks can be managed at the same time and executed faster. Especially for time-critical tasks, workload automation can be match-decisive.

 

By linking different automation processes that were previously managed separately, Workload Automation allows digital processes to be planned and implemented across multiple systems in a centralized system. In this sense, all data, applications and infrastructures can be managed in a single place using modern digital-first technologies.

Increase quality

With a workload automation solution, companies additionally increase the quality of their processes and services.

  • Manual activities are replaced by automated processes
  • Errors are automatically detected and corrected
  • Processes can be implemented according to defined company standards and best practices
  • Time-consuming and cost-intensive interruptions in business processes are avoided
  • Ensures compliance with service level agreements (SLAs)
  • Audit and compliance: all automated processes are centrally documented and traceable for everyone

Reduce the workload of employees

Manual repetitive tasks are one of the reasons why employees can be slowed down in their productivity. For a more productive workflow, workload automation / digital business automation cost-effectively automates those tasks that do not require a specialist decision.

 

The result:

  • Employees are relieved
  • Employees can focus on higher-value tasks
  • The human factor is eliminated as a possible source of error

Job scheduling vs workload automation: what’s the difference?

When it comes to scheduling and automated execution of tasks and processes, the two terms workload automation and job scheduling are often used interchangeably. While job scheduling is primarily about the timed execution of processes such as end-of-month payroll, a single workload automation solution can automate all processes across systems, eliminate errors, account for dependencies, and save significant time than that would be possible with multiple separate job scheduler installations.
