Authored by industry expert Greg Shields, this new book presents a set of questions that will frame your need for job scheduling. Greg delivers a set of real-world use cases for seeing scheduling in action. He deconstructs an IT workflow, so readers can peer inside to see its internal machinery. The book concludes with a checklist of requirements readers should consider when seeking a solution for job scheduling.

"Find me the IT environment with only a single application, and I'll show you a business that doesn't need IT job scheduling. Everyone else probably does. Most environments have far more - all of which need to communicate with each other, and all of which suffer under their own product-specific toolsets. Today's IT technologies are fantastic in the business processes they automate, but rare are two that seamlessly talk with each other. Rarer still is the IT product that is superior all by itself in creating and scheduling workflows that meet business requirements," explains author Greg Shields. "An IT job scheduling solution can be that Rosetta Stone between different platforms, operating systems, and applications. It can be that solution for converting raw technology into a business enabler. Solutions for Automating IT Job Scheduling shows you how to make such a solution for your business."
