Workload automation software is used to streamline and automate IT processes related to job scheduling, batch processing or other repetitive tasks. These tools centralize control over business processes across mainframe, cloud, and and cloud computing systems. Companies use workload automation software to manage, schedule, and optimize workload processes. These tools can streamline business processes and, in effect, simplify planning, increase efficiency, and cut costs.
There is relation between workload automation and robotic process automation software. While the concepts seem similar, the two solutions typically function in tandem. RPA tools are used to build workflows and deploy bots to automate workflows across third-party applications. Workload automation typically does not support the development of workflows, they simply run the designated actions.
