You can use HCL Workload Automation reports to retrieve data from the HCL Workload Automation database. You can then view, print, and save the results in different kinds of output. You can also save, reuse, and share the reports with other users and modify them at any time.

To generate your reports, you can use either Business Intelligent Report Tool (BIRT) or Tivoli Common Reporting.

BIRT provides a historical and statistical overview of your jobs, workstations, and plans, while Tivoli Common Reporting provides sample reports which you can customize to suit your needs and analytical reports which analyze errors in the job duration estimate and variances in job duration.

The analytical reports help you identify the jobs that have a high estimated error rate and the jobs whose duration varies significantly, thus indicating a potential problem. This insight information allows you to intervene beforehand on those jobs and prevent potential problems.

After you analyze the results of the reports, you can plan and assess changes and adjustments to your workload with the What-if Analysis. The What-if Analysis simulates and evaluates the impact of any changes to the current plan. For more information on What-if Analysis, see Analyzing the impact of changes on your environment.
