Is Your Automation Designed To Accommodate A Changing IT Landscape?

The 3 Key Components of an Intelligent IT Automation Solution White Paper, will discuss the trifecta that forms the basis of an intelligent IT automation solution. 

 

 

Advanced Workflow Management for Heterogeneous IT Environments

Let’s face it. Writing scripts for every business or IT process just isn’t possible anymore. There are too many applications, multiple dependencies between systems, and simply not enough time or people resources to update and maintain these scripts.

ActiveBatch’s workflow development capabilities take workflow management to a new level, with advanced features that are designed to help developers build and automate workflows in half the time. ActiveBatch offers an easy-to-use interface with a drag & drop workflow designer featuring hundreds of production-ready Job Steps to today’s most used business and IT applications, technologies, and databases.

 

 

End-to-End Accessibility with the Integrated Jobs Library and Service Library
Automate complex business and IT workflows with ActiveBatch’s award-winning Integrated Jobs Library. The Integrated Jobs Library reduces the need for custom scripting by providing hundreds of Job Steps with the logic already built in, so users can easily pass data and manage dependencies via fully end-to-end workflows.

In addition, the ActiveBatch Service Library extends the power of the Integrated Jobs Library with full API accessibility that allows users to load and execute WSDLs, SOAP Web Services, RESTful Services, and more, expanding the reach of ActiveBatch to any technology or application with an API.

 

Script Lifecycle Management & Script Language Independence
ActiveBatch is script-language independent, and therefore supports any and all scripting languages including PowerShell, VBScript, PERL, XLNT and more. As a result, users can immediately get up and running with their ActiveBatch implementation from day one by using a scripting language they are most familiar with.

ActiveBatch understands that organizations need to protect their script investment and provides script vaulting, where scripts can be executed as needed and enhanced with lifecycle management capabilities. ActiveBatch provides an audit trail of all revisions made to scripts and supports revision rollback so users can easily restore scripts to any previous version.

Reference Functionality & Variables
Organizations can reuse, rather than rewrite with ActiveBatch’s built-in reference functionality and variable support. Instead of using copy & paste, references allow users to easily make changes to one job or plan, and automatically pass down those changes to hundreds or thousands of jobs or plans that reference the original object. In addition to this, ActiveBatch supports the use of variables, which can be used to pass data to other related jobs as well as form constraints for proper execution of related jobs.

 

Continuous Development
ActiveBatch supports continuous development for both Development and Operations roles by providing several collaboration capabilities that improve IT agility. For example, ActiveBatch’s Check Out | Check In with Collaboration tool provides a “team” approach to workflow development by allowing multiple developers simultaneous access to the same object(s).

Upon Check-In, ActiveBatch’s built-in Conflict Resolution tool helps identify any conflicting changes made to objects. Additionally, ActiveBatch’s Simulation Mode allows developers and operations to simulate workflow logic and execution for testing without incurring the usual delays imposed by actually running the job’s payload.

 

Change Management Change Management
Ensure a reliable, error-free approach to managing objects in multiple environments with ActiveBatch’s Change Management system. The Change Management system features a visual interface for users to compare different Job Schedulers and their environments, and then select and migrate objects as needed from one scheduling environment to another.
