companies have wasted up to 35% of their IT budgets from poor process,

Xi-Batch Improves Process Efficiency and Reduces Administrator Workload
Xi-Batch is a flexible general purpose job scheduling and control system for
standalone and networked UNIX and Linux systems. The system provides seamless,
cross-platform operation across networked systems, and offers a variety of user and administrative interfaces in graphical and character modes.
Xi-Batch provides timed and repetitive job scheduling, ad hoc job submission, job chaining and monitoring services
in a unified environment. Xi-Batch can handle complex scheduling requirements, using time/date, file monitoring,
simple or complex dependencies, condition testing and other factors.
Xi-Batch unifies the management of your server environment, with the broadest
platform support available, from desktop systems to mainframes. Xi-Batch
supports virtually all Linux distributions, as well as Solaris, AIX, HP/UX, SCO
and many others. Optional client modules for Microsoft-based servers permit jobs to be scheduled and monitored on NT/2000/XP servers.
Database administrators rely on Xi-Batch to accurately and reliably place database systems into backup mode, initiate backup applications, then restore the applications to a production state. Systems administrators use Xi-Batch to initiate data transfers, trigger reporting routines, and perform periodic system maintenance.

For nearly two decades, data center operations managers have relied upon Xi-Batch for robust, scaleable job management in complex environments.
Xi-Batch has enterprise-class features on a par with the job control modules of leading integrated systems management suites. Xi-Batch provides local, remote and global conditions and dependencies, file monitoring, load balancing and complex conditional testing. But unlike large "framework" products, Xi-Batch is cost-effective and easy to deploy and manage.
