Enterprises using multiple ERP systems look for a a job schedulers that can work with SAP and other ERP or DW vendors alike. Third party tools are not advisable if the Enterprise runs purely on SAP ERP. They increase the TCO, increase delays in problem correction, create high dependencies among technologies, and increase chances of miscommunication.

- Control-M by BMC
- Cronacle by Redwood
- ORSYP by Dollar Universe
- Tidal Enterprise Scheduler by Cisco
- Tivoli Workload Scheduler (Maestro) by IBM
