Reply with quote

Hi all,

In our firm, we have migrated from CA-7 Scheduler to ESP Scheduler. We were able to bring out all the scheduling changes through ESP which was existing before in CA-7 and the migration is complete with good results.

It would be great if anyone could help with the documentation of the advantages of ESP over CA-7 or any special highlights/features that exists in ESP which is not available in CA-7 like,

1) setting for cross-platform dependency,
2) setting a resource based on online start, setting up events to take action based on time with the help of job monitor / alert events
3) easy access to locate a blocking job etc..

Thanks,
Vidhya

Advantages and product comparision should have been very first step of your migration process..

Hi Sambhaji,

Maybe now someone needs to find a way to justify the forced choice (i.e. no real decision might have been made, just a directive) icon_smile.gif

It will be interesting if the "con"s outweigh the "pro"s. . .

Hi Sambhaji,

We belong to Development team and not part of the Scheduling Team. It would be great if we could identify special/advanced features of ESP that could be optimized it for our new requirements/projects.

Our scheduling team helps us to plan the batch job/online dependency schedule based on our requirements. Here, they may apply regular methodology which they are used to. There may be advanced features in ESP which could suffice the requirements in a better way than regular scheduling mechanisms.

If this is explored , truly it would an added advantage of handling ESP to the fullest use !!!


Thanks,
Vidhya

What You ask for is not a simple question, to answer it it requires quite a bit of time

remember replying on a forum is on voluntary base and our own time,

Your organization just forgot to plan for proper training,

it is unfair to ask us to spend time to solve an issue due to poor practice! icon_cool.gif

Your scheduler support group should be the one telling You

or even better, since ESP made money out of the sale, why not ask them ?

Enrico,

Yes, I understand that research will surely need extensive time icon_sad.gif

But I posted this topic on a thought, that some reader would have already done with analysis and would be able to share the results on the same.

Just incase anyone has, please post your response !

Thanks a lot for all your feedback.

Thanks,
Vidhya

There's always a manual. Table of Contents might be good place to start. Also try Google.

If it is all new to your scheduling team, don't rush them with "advanced features" until they have the basics "bedded-in".

if some reader had done the analysis the chances of of sharing it over here are pretty slim,
usually these kind of evaluations/comparisons are based on internal metrics, and on a deep knowledge of the internal processes,

there might also be IP issues in sharing evaluation documents

what is good for somebody is not so for somebody else!

I' ve seen quite a few times products chosen for some obscure feature that were considered crucial in some places irrelevant/useless somewhere else

Hello,

Suggest you speak with the people who made the decision to change and learn what were their main considerations.

It may be as simple as wanting to have a multi-platform scheduling solution. . .

If you are completely unfamiliar with ESP suggest you read the material available on the CA web site. . .

It will almost certainly not be part of the developer's responsibility. Your scheduling, coputer operations, and technical support will probably determins which features will be used and how they will be used.
