New release automates IBM i system processes to improve productivity and reduce costs.
Record and Playback V11 provides a simple way to record and capture every step associated with system processes. It can be used either when jobs are run interactively, or when interactive screens would normally need input from the IT team. A new screen capture capability allows the recording of all keystrokes, including Function keys and the Enter key, that are necessary to submit a job and replays the sequence automatically at the appropriate time.
The software has the capability to create playback scripts that enable system processes, complex, interactive jobs and applications to run automatically without the need for user interaction. Any subsequent actions, should the routines not successfully complete or require follow-up tasks, can also be automated, eliminating human error and significantly reducing the need to process repetitive, time-consuming or complex IT jobs. Record and Playback V11 delivers significant business benefits by reducing overtime costs and increasing efficiency by automating complicated and essential processes such as interactive job submissions, systems saves, back-ups and repetitive program testing.
"Record and Playback V11 is easy to use without requiring high levels of IBM i programming skills," commented
"Record and Playback automates essential system tasks, reduces service delivery costs and improves the productivity of IBM i server infrastructures," continued Chandler. "It will also allow users to manage a rapidly expanding range of IT systems without requiring additional staff resources."
Record and Playback V11 can also be used in conjunction with Halcyon's Advanced Job Scheduler V11 which enables organisations to schedule and track complex job streams across different IBM i platforms to ensure that business processes are running smoothly. It is available either as a standalone utility or as an additional component to any of Halcyon's suites for the IBM i. Existing users can upgrade to this latest release free of charge.
