  • Statistical analysis identifying the last time jobs executed
  • Statistical analysis identifying defined jobs which have not been executed recently (source visualjob statistical database)
  • Ability to generate a GanttView for specific hours versus an entire day
  • Enhanced support of ETT information
  • Out of the box analysis of specific scheduling patterns, e.g. identifying applications which utilize conditional dependencies, applications with multiple Run Cycles, applications only having external predecessor dependencies, applications only having external successor dependencies, applications having external predecessor and external successor dependencies
  • Web/HTML reports about IWS Applications now contain Special Resource information
  • Several security enhancements: Support of longer passwords for visualjob, support for individual user profiles (username and password) for connected SQL Server statistical databases, support for SQL Server SSL encryption
