Automate

Automated Batch Processing

Batch processing

Automation of multi-machine, cross-platform batch processes in distributed networks.

Never write another batch file or custom script again. That's the promise of Automate. Automate enables sophisticated automation development without the need for writing and managing code. This greatly reduces development costs and timelines, and makes ongoing maintenance and management of automated tasks a breeze.

The key to this functionality is Automate's visual task design system which allows IT Professionals to build tasks via drag-and-drop without writing scripts, batch files or custom programs. Automate provides over 600 prebuilt automation building blocks with drag-and-drop capabilities called actions which enable sophisticated task development without writing a line of code.

No More Code

Batch processing powers the jobs, tasks, and workflows that keep your business going. Batches are executed using scripts and run in the background on servers or mainframe type systems. From the payroll process to collecting sales data, batch processes run the critical tasks that keep your business going.

To do this, IT developers have to write code to create scripts that includes all the steps that are required for the task to run successfully. Then, they take that script and schedule it using scheduling software that is usually built into the operating system of the server that it's executing on. This process can be long and tedious, taking up the precious time that can be better spent on more value-added tasks.

Automate makes it easier to create the code needed to execute batch processes. With Automate, developers can create more code more quickly and make it possible for others to see what the code looks like and document each step. Automate also gives your operations staff a better view of what is happening on the system including a forecast and history.
