Worldwide. Someone asked me how many people might submit batch jobs to z/OS. There is no way to count, but might there be an estimate published anywhere?

Tons of jobs are submitted daily in auto-mode, either those stored in JCL libraries, or being generated dynamically by various tools, from ISPF File Tailoring Services, up to any text editing tool, even SORT utility.

Sometimes there are reasons to submit many jobs manually, in a series. For instance, in the last two weeks I had to perform heavy regression testing of a third-party product, after their multiple version updates, and PTFs. I had to submit more than 6,000 jobs (30-40 steps each), to re-process again the available data from the past 6 months.
