Build the Future: Seven Signs You Need to Consolidate Your Workloads (by Umair Khan)
A longer and more in-depth version of this article was originally published by my colleague Umair Khan in Enterprise Executive. If you recognize some of the signs below, I suggest you read the full article for the solutions….
Workload automation lies at the very heart of data centers. It ensures that key business processes—ones that directly impact a company’s customers, employees, and bottom line—run in a timely and cost-effective manner. But here’s the challenge: More and more businesses are realizing the strategic importance of workload automation, but are unable to reap its benefits because they currently rely on disparate or legacy job scheduling tools.
Have a look at the seven signs below and if you recognise a few of them, you may be interested to find out if you need to consolidate your workloads into a single, comprehensive tool:
You’re managing multiple schedulers.
Your cost of managing workloads is increasing. If your company has used a particular job scheduler for years, there’s a good chance you aren’t managing jobs through the most cost-efficient process.
You’re struggling to meet Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
You’re facing significant delays in problem resolution. The time it takes to resolve a job failure is critical and can prove to be a significant drain on resources, especially if you’re managing multiple applications across multiple teams.
You’re struggling to keep up with business needs.
You’re unable to take advantage of dynamic infrastructures (like cloud services).
You’re struggling with compliance.
Again, if you recognize a few of the above (and I am sure you will), read the full article for ways to increase efficiencies, how to strategically consolidate your workloads into a single platform, and you will see the benefits for your customers, employees, partners, and bottom line.
