Operation Issues

Sony Technology Malaysia required an application that can help execute and monitor batch jobs and to re-schedule jobs necessarily when a particular job fail to complete in the preceding stage. Presently, administrators in Sony Technology perform tedious troubleshooting support without adequate information and appropriate tool. It takes up a lot of times before the problem is being identified and resolves. They are also currently creating jobs for different user groups using different type of user interfaces. This require IT staff to acquire knowledge of different software. Thus, they are looking for an application that will execute and monitor jobs across multiple platforms using a centralized management system.


JP1/Automatic Job Management System 2 and JP1/Application Manager for Oracle Applications
From a variety of potential tools, Sony Technology Malaysia selected Hitachi's JP1 Job Management as its single point-of-control for multi-platform job scheduling. JP1 provides comprehensive job scheduling capabilities - including event-driven scheduling, centralized real-time monitoring and proactive error recovery.

JP1/Automatic Job Management System 2 (JP1/AJS2) is an automatic job scheduling and management tool that brings scheduling functionality to production systems across heterogeneous platforms.

JP1/Application Management (AM) for Oracle Applications is an add-on product to JP1/AJS2. The purpose of this integration is to simplify the execution and monitoring of Oracle concurrent requests from JP1 with more flexibility. It provides seamless integration between JP1 and Oracle Applications, without any changes to Oracle Applications.
