  • System-wide control over your job scheduling:

With BatchMan, you can combine any number of cross-system jobs into one single process. Using the graphical modeling or list view in BatchMan, you can design your processes to meet your needs exactly. Scheduled time reserves are now redundant because dependencies are kept as modeled. This way BatchMan smoothly integrates into the look & feel of SAP and its usability.

  • Consistent traceability of process changes:
BatchMan supports this by a separate change history and archiving and thus meets the criteria of modern compliance demands.

  • Always keep process overview, even in case of errors.:
BatchMan will tell you with alerts and will give you options to fix in the event of a malfunction. For instance, you can fix an error in the system automatically via recovery jobs. This way the subsequent process remains untouched. You can set the criteria for behaving in the event of an error already in process planning to avoid manual interventions.
