Improve Web Services Orchestration

Simplify job scheduling for service-oriented architecture (SOA) environments with Cisco Tidal Enterprise Adapter for Web Services. This software works with Cisco Tidal Enterprise Scheduler to improve web services orchestration by:

  • Automating job scheduling
  • Providing control over jobs of all sizes and complexities

This web services orchestration solution:

  • Makes all operations inherent in Web Services Description Language (WSDL) available for scheduling design
  • Provides a comprehensive web services API
  • Offers specific web services job instance control capabilities
  • Provides a single point of job scheduling control

You can visually define jobs and access scheduler features such as dependency settings. Unlike point tools, this web services scheduling solution helps you view and manage any job in the context of other enterprise jobs. You can then factor in dependencies and other requirements (Figure 1).

Optimize Web Services Orchestration

Complex process scheduling is usually developed and tested offline, and must be structured and repeatable. Automating web services scheduling is challenging because it requires coordinating and deploying an array of point services.

Cisco Tidal Enterprise Scheduler with the adapter for web services reduces these complexities. Designed specifically for web services scheduling, it:

  • Reduces the time and effort involved in scheduling jobs in web services-enabled environments
  • Helps IT staff by providing standardized end-to-end processes and procedures
