Solution Summary:

ActiveBatch Workload Automation and Enterprise Job Scheduling allows IT organizations to develop and rollout end-to-end business and IT workflows faster and more reliably than depending on custom script creation or closed scheduling tools that are limited to a specific system. ActiveBatch is an Intelligent Automation solution that overcomes the boundaries of IT complexity and allows users to easily develop workflows that integrate processes across disparate systems and automate the provisioning of finite resources. ActiveBatch automatically provisions both virtual and cloud environments, either predicatively or on-demand as workflow execution requires, and allows organizations to manage workflows based on business policies, Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and provision resources accordingly to ensure timely completion.

ActiveBatch extends Oracle scheduling capabilities through the ActiveBatch Integrated Jobs Library which consists of hundreds of production-ready, drag-and-drop Job Steps which allow Oracle users to build and automate simple and sophisticated Oracle process workflows in conjunction with other non-Oracle based processes. Using ActiveBatch's production-ready Job Steps for Oracle Database, E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft, all of ActiveBatch's advanced scheduling capabilities can be brought to your Oracle jobs.

Solution Profile:

Take the scheduling and automation of Oracle Database, E-Business Suite (EBS), PeopleSoft, PL/SQL stored procedures, Jave stored procedures and more to the next level with ActiveBatch Enterprise Job Scheduling and Workload Automation.

  • Give operators the ability to communicate and manage multiple Oracle jobs and workflows with Job Chaining across multiple Oracle systems
  • Improve reliability through ActiveBatch Non-Cluster Failover, checkpoint restarts, and workload balancing
  • Support the initiation of ActiveBatch jobs and workflows to start on the insertion, update or deletion of information via ActiveBatch Event Triggers which include a wide range of events that can be used to trigger your Oracle Workflows
  • Job Steps include: Start Job; Import/Export; Get Job Status; Synchronize Job; PL-SQLBlock


Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) 

  • Incorporate Oracle EBS scheduling into broader, cross-platform and cross-application enterprise scheduling
  • Integrate EBS processes with external processes 
  • Job Steps include: Get Current Program Log, Status, Output; Schedule Concurrent Request, Request Set; Synchronize Concurrent Program
