A History of Job Scheduling & Workload Automation

Sure, we can tell you about BMC Control-M’s evolution throughout the years—but it’s much more fun to show it. This infographic illustrates the history of BMC Control-M and job scheduling as a whole—along with a little world history to boot.

You’ll find out:

  • When job scheduling came on the scene
  • The year Control-M developed the first enterprise-wide job scheduling solution
  • How we’ve kept evolving workload automation with tools like Self Service and cloud support
  • Predictions for the future (let’s hope that whole Godzilla thing doesn’t come true)

These postings are my own and do not necessarily represent BMC's position, strategies, or opinion.
