Hello Praveen,

As like in Informatica, the scheduling cannot be completely done in Ab Initio. In the Ab Initio GDE versions 2.14.X there is a Plan>It which replaced DTM plans.

Through Plan>It plans we can have different methods to have pre and post process and also triggers. there are sepearte method to carry out particular process on success and failure of the graphs.

As concerned to my knowledge, the scheduling of these plans are done thru the cron job only.
