Overview

In this instructor-led course, you learn how to manage batch workloads in z/OS with IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS. During the course, you use ISPF panels to create scheduling definitions and perform operational tasks. There is also a brief overview of the end-to-end environment. The course covers creating and controlling planning objects, such as workstations, applications, calendars, and resources. You learn how to schedule these objects into a daily planning cycle and then monitor and manage them. This training class is provided in a classroom environment with multiple opportunities for hands-on lab practice. The scenarios used in this class are based on IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS version 9.2.0.
