Five years ago, we imagined a future where our software products could be deployed in minutes into dynamic public, private and hybrid clouds. We harmonized our investments and roadmaps to get cloud-native from the ground up. 5,000+ people-years of investments later, we have:
Access to the program is decided annually following a nomination and judging process. These typically take place in October and November, with the announcement of the next year’s HCL Ambassadors in December.
HCL Software announced the introduction of HCL Automation Power Suite bundle offering comprising of HCL Workload Automation, HCL Clara and HCL HERO. With Automation Power Suite, customers can automate more, automate better and automate smarter to build an enterprise automation platform.
Don't get left behind! The new era of digital transformation of businesses has moved on to new operating models such as containers and cloud orchestration. Let’s find out how to get the best of Workload Automation (WA) by deploying the solution on a cloud-native environment such as Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS).
How important is that your Workload Automation environment is healthy, up and running, and there are no workload stops or delays? What happens if your Master Domain Manager becomes unavailable or it is affected by downtime? What manual recovery solution you must do when it happens?
No matter if your environment is based on rock solid z/OS controller or on light weight and easily scalable docker instances, or if your distributed, on premises master and backup master are rocking your workload as fire and water. Earth, wind, water and fire… if you want to have control over each element you need the fifth spirt: your custom dashboard! It’s easy to create and customize your dashboard to have control over every single important aspect for you and your organization at a glance. Each dashboard is composed by several data sources and widgets that can be customized and combined together in the new era of dashboards. (ref 15-Jun-20 blog post “Welcome to the new Era of Dashboards” ). But you can also optimize your dashboard to monitor different kinds of environments all together. Let’s see how it works. Cross-engine widgets If you need an overview of the entire workload across all of your environments, you can use for example the Jobs count by status datasource in a pie chart to have a quick overview of how many jobs are waiting, running or ended in error or in successful state. To make this datasource and widget works across multiple environment you need to add first an engine list. D engine list and Z engine list are optimized for homogeneous environment, while for an hybrid (distributed and z/OS) environment you have to select the Engine list. At this point you can add also the desired widget and customize all fields as you can see below. Widgets based on datasource with pre-defined engine. However, the best way to monitor hybrid environment is to use specific datasources for each engine. For example, if you need to monitor the Critical jobs Duplicate the Critical jobs by status datasource and name it after the...
