Get 'er Done: Workload Automation in the Modern Enterprise

The brave new world of Internet application delivery was supposed to eliminate such antiquated IT concepts as "batch processing". But if anything, the need to reliably schedule recurring application processes for database extracts, data warehousing, and business intelligence has increased the need for critical back-end computing. Those workload automation processes must run securely, in the proper sequence, with prerequisite checking and the ability to recover from run time anomalies. In this presentation you'll learn the fundamentals of process scheduling, how to ensure back-end processing is secure, reliable and resilient, and how dependency mapping can prevent a small workload automation failure from snowballing into a disaster.
