Question:
Can cross-platform scheduling be accomplished between AutoSys and OPC (IBM Mainframe Scheduler)? What will it take to integrate these two schedulers to optimize our batch flow?
Answer:
For OPC scheduler on the mainframe integration with CA AutoSys:
1) install CCI on the Autosys scheduler 
2) install CCI on the mainframe 
3) install Autosys Connect on the mainfame. 

For a CA scheduler on the mainframe integration with CA AutoSys:
1) install CCI on the Autosys scheduler 
2) install CCI on the mainframe. 
3) Autosys Connect is not required if they are only performing direct submissions. 

Caveat: If you want an Autosys job to be dependent on the success of CA mainframe scheduler job or OPC scheduler job, Autosys Connect needs to be installed on the mainframe along with CCI.
