This IBM Redbooks publication explains the benefits and technical merits of integrating IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Distributed and IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS with other IBM products.

In addition, expanding the scheduling ecosystem to include monitoring, management, help desk, storage, and business systems management provides greater value.
