Riksgäldskontoret Selects Kronos Enterprise Scheduler

Paramus, NJ - January 28, 2002 - Indus Consultancy Services (ICS), today announced that Riksgäldskontoret, plans to use Kronos Enterprise Scheduler to schedule, execute, and monitor batch jobs such as invoicing. These batch jobs will each consist of several tasks where both execution of Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs) and operating system commands will be necessary. Kronos Enterprise Scheduler is well-suited to this, as it defines tasks as a single unit of work, with a job defined as a collection of tasks. Additionally, Kronos Enterprise Scheduler integrates well with existing J2EE/EJB applications, allowing tasks to call EJBs without requiring those EJBs to be modified. "We were looking for a job monitor that could be integrated with our Java/EJB/Weblogic environment. Out of the products we looked at, we especially liked Kronos’ concept of jobs and tasks," explains the Deputy Head of Cash Management, Tommy Widell.

Another requirement for Riksgäldskontoret was the need to keep track of which files have been produced by a job. ICS worked with Riksgäldskontoret to extend the Kronos Enterprise Scheduler functional ity, and this feature is now available as part of the product."For us it was important to choose a product that could be modified to suit our needs and allow us to work with a cooperative customer support organization," said Widell.

More information on Kronos Enterprise Scheduler can be obtained from the ICS website at or by sending an e-mail to Free 30-day evaluations of the product are also available for download.
