V10's support of REST will provide improved ease of use as developers will be able to create reusable REST Job Steps

It avoids manual job step
information being entered too early or too late, making the dispatch more efficient.
Among V7's other new features are an updated jobs library with support for more applications, SQL reporting and a wide range of database functions; a new change management application that simplifies the process of moving systems from a QA environment to a Production environment; a Power Management job step
that can reduce energy consumption; and an expanded number of event-driven job triggers.
It can use either the average CPU time of a particular job step

as a base to help detect tuning potential opportunities.
Leading the list of requested features is a new ActiveBatch Job Step

This capability segments the input data, sorts the segments, stores them on tape, and merges them all in a single job step
1 allows tasks to be automated through enhanced, rules-based "jobs" that are smart enough to check for certain conditions -- like data file availability, or success of a previous job step
-- and to wait or try again if something isn't ready.
