Advancing Beyond The Native IBM i Scheduler

The Business Case for Third-Party IBM i Job Schedulers 

After decades of faithful service, the benefits of the Native 

Scheduler for the IBM i have passed their prime. In most instances, users of the native scheduler are missing out on key  features, such as: 

Job, Run-time, and Date Scheduling

✔ Job dependency (Native does not have this feature)  

✔ History (Cannot retrieve history easily)   

 Run days (Native does not show future run days)   

✔ Steps (Native only allows one step) 

Auditing & Reporting

Native does not show on a screen history of a job

✔ Native does not have a report detailing jobs ran during a selected time frame

✔ Native does not show when the last change was made
