PTC Scheduler - History


PTC Software is a UK based company which specialises in the development and distribution of Enterprise Systems Management (ESM) software products.

PTC was formed in 1983 to provide a range of Systems Management utilities to the users of Honeywell Bull’s large mainframe computers. PTC’s first package was an early Job Scheduling solution called "Job Flow Control Facility". Indeed, this was probably one of the first job scheduling systems available anywhere.

As the Honeywell Bull marketplace has eroded over the last twenty years, so PTC has expanded its product set to support many operating systems including Unix, Windows and Vax, whilst remaining firmly rooted to the original areas of expertise in Systems Management.

The latest Scheduling tool, PTC Scheduler, is the fourth generation product and encompasses over twenty years of direct experience gained from the needs and wishes of many large (200 servers) and small customers (1-5 servers).

The new generation of tools has been expanded into the areas of service availability and management. Areas which are becoming increasingly important for Technology departments or companies who wish to provide a measurably significant quality of service to their customers. This generation also incorporates full alert escalation ability and a Microsoft SQL Server database for permanent storage.

In recent years, PTC Scheduler has been enhanced to provide scheduling for various housing applications including

  • Pericles
  • IBS

    No one is ahead of his time, it is only that the particular variety of creating his time is the one that his contemporaries who are also creating their own time refuse to accept....

In the history of the refused in the arts and literature the rapidity of the change is always startling.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Classes struggle, some classes triumph, others are eliminated. Such is history; such is the history of civilization for thousands of years.
    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)

    In every election in American history both parties have their clichés. The party that has the clichés that ring true wins.
    Newt Gingrich (b. 1943)
