A computer implemented method, system, and/or computer program product optimizes systems usage. A work request is decomposed into units of work. A processor selectively sends each unit of work from the work request to either a first system or a second system for execution, depending on a work constraint on each unit of work and/or system constraints on the first and second systems.

Title
