ActiveBatch Extension for Informatica PowerCenter: IT Automation Beyond PMCMD

Posted by: Advanced Systems Concepts, Inc

The ActiveBatch® Extension for PowerCenter provides end-to-end automation that ensures dependencies are met and data is complete every time by overcoming common limitations of the PowerCenter native scheduler & eliminating the complexity of PMCMD & custom scripting.


ActiveBatch® is transforming PowerCenter automation by providing Informatica users a unique & powerful approach that offers capabilities beyond the native PowerCenter scheduler & eliminates the complexity of PMCMD & custom scripting. The ActiveBatch Integrated Jobs Library provides pre-built, templated Job Steps that can be dragged & dropped to easily & reliably automate PowerCenter workflows. Users can also build workflows into end-to-end processes that pass data & manage dependencies without custom scripting.

  • Leverage advanced date/time scheduling
  • Simplify complex event-based scheduling requirements
  • Dynamically set runtime parameters
  • Execute workflows sourced in & across multiple folders
  • Ensure dependencies have been met (e.g., having exclusive access to a file) before starting other dependent workflows
  • Use flow control & conditional logic job steps like if/then/else statements
  • Leverage built-in runtime monitoring to proactively monitor a job's progress & send an alert if an ETL or other job is running longer than expected
  • Easily monitor & service SLAs to meet expected completion requirements
  • Build & automate end-to-end workflows across Informatica & non-Informatica applications without custom scripting

And much more

  • This seems to be an integrated solution and can work enterprise wide.
