Job networking provides a number of functions that can assist an enterprise in combining multiple computing facilities into an integrated computer network. Data sets (and data bases) that were previously available only at one location in an organization can now be made available throughout the entire organization. This availability can be accomplished either by sending jobs to the location that maintains the data set or, if timeliness is not extremely critical, the data set can be periodically transmitted to all desired locations using job networking.
