Need for Job Monitoring :

IT organizations face new challenges every day as they attempt to remain effective and future safe while also keeping costs for day-to-day operations as low as possible. They are also being challenged more than ever to demonstrate their value to businesses. Therefore, it is important to optimize the day-to-day tasks that have less obvious business value and to use KPI and benchmark-based reporting to make IT processes more visible, demonstrating the real value that IT can provide.
In order to minimize the costs of IT, it is necessary to standardize and automate IT processes end-to-end (E2E) without reducing the SLAs required by the business, such as stability, availability, performance, process and data transparency, data consistency, IT process compliance, and so on.

In the modern environment of real-time data processing, efficient, automated tasks are essential, and the need for background processes is high. The more complex that landscapes and requirements are, the more important it is for companies to increase the efficiency of all tasks related to job automation. Another aspect automating background operation is ensuring efficient use of the available system resources, for example, CPU and memory. Therefore, job automation and efficient utilization affect the whole system landscape.

In Focused Run, you can monitor the status of background processing in your entire system landscape along with several job parameters that will focus on automating operations and effective resource utilization.
