Techopedia Explains Workload AutomationWorkload automation, at its very core, is just a background IT process that can automate any number of business systems in order to reduce response times, cut costs and improve overall efficiency. The process is varied, from a simple closed job scheduling algorithm to a robust and smart workflow management system that touches every aspect of an organization’s IT.
A workload automation system acts as a single point of control that adds a new level of efficiency to the planning, execution and monitoring of various asynchronous applications that run in a complex, diverse and distributed IT environment. This is especially important since businesses have moved on from the management of single applications for business workflows to more complex, multi-user and multi-disciplinary IT systems that link back and forth to connect desktop, mobile, mainframe and cloud deliveries. This allows for rapid growth in terms of scope and breadth of business processes as well as for the management of different systems with complex and varied workloads.
