Centralized Workload Scheduling and IT Process Automation
The concept of job scheduling—using software to run your IT tasks without manual intervention—has been around for decades. But basic schedulers, like the kind that come built into your operating system or business applications, are no longer adequate in today’s business environment. HelpSystems offers two automation platforms to handle the complex scheduling needs of modern enterprises: AutoMate and Skybot.
AutoMate’s intuitive drag-and-drop interface allows you to manage your job scheduling without writing a single line of code. You can integrate your IT job schedule with automated processes around your organization, like user provisioning, report generation, and data scraping—and monitor it all from a central location.
Skybot is a powerful, enterprise-class automation solution that lets you schedule processes across multiple platforms and applications. If you are dealing with complex dependencies, like a file arrival on one server needing to kick off a process on another, Skybot can handle your requirements through robust event-driven scheduling options. Skybot protects you against costly unplanned downtime with job monitors, notifications, and support for high availability.
Many critical business applications include job schedulers with limited capabilities. Skybot’s cross-platform automation options maximize the power of applications like:
- Oracle E-Business Suite
- Web Services
Both Skybot and AutoMate are known for their ease of use and fast deployment. You can solve your automation problems in days with no need for additional staff.

While Skybot and AutoMate are powerful tools when used individually, they can also be implemented together to automate your entire enterprise from the servers in the datacenter down to the end user’s desktop. For example, you could use Skybot to schedule and integrate data from your big software like CRM, ETL, and ERP, while AutoMate takes that data, generates reports in a variety of formats, and distributes them to stakeholders.
