Automate, Monitor, and Manage Innovative Digital Processes


RPA or Workload Automation?

RPA tools automate simplistic, repetitive tasks by interacting with user-interfaces (UI). As a result, minor changes to a UI often result in broken processes and technical debt, preventing businesses from developing their automation strategies, placing additional pressure on IT, and increasing operational costs.

Workload automation (WLA) is a popular alternative to RPA for several reasons. Because WLA interacts programmatically with applications and systems, WLA solutions offer a much broader scope of process automation with greater efficiency and reliability.

With ActiveBatch Workload Automation, IT can orchestrate and simplify complex processes, building resilient, end-to-end workflows that connect databases, IT infrastructure, and business applications.

Where Digital Transformation Meets the Digital Workforce

Frequently Asked Questions

RPA solutions are used to automate time-consuming, rules-based tasks that are generally well-defined. Users "train" software robots to complete routine business processes such as screen scraping. The benefits of RPA platforms come with trade-offs RPA vendors don't often mention. RPA implementations (desktop automation) interact with applications at the user-interface level such that any changes to the UI will render the tool unable to complete its process. This results in broken processes that are difficult to track and identify, in many cases curtailing the RPA journey. ActiveBatch Workload Automation overcomes these challenges with broad process orchestration capabilities.

ActiveBatch's use cases are endless. As one customer recently stated in a case study, "If it's digital, ActiveBatch can do it." ActiveBatch enables users to build, monitor, and manage automated processes that span the data center, IT operations and infrastructure, business processes, and so much more. As a result, organizations are able to seamlessly coordinate data, dependencies, and resources between IT and business systems. This fluid relationship between data and business is key to financial services, front office data entry, supply chain reporting, research, and much more.

ActiveBatch provides intelligent automation facilities for managing resources across hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Users can leverage ActiveBatch’s Heuristic Queue Allocation facility which employs machine learning to pre-allocate resources according to historical usage trends and real-time demands. ActiveBatch also provides a Smart Queue facility that dynamically scales resources according to real-time demand. These facilities further minimize human intervention by allowing IT to automatically scale in order to meet high-volume spikes

Business process automation (BPA software) enables users to automate manual, repetitive tasks, reducing human interventions into routine processes. Business process automation solutions provide no-code workflow development, real-time monitoring, alerting, auto-remediation, script life cycle management tools, and much more. Low-code business automation platforms like ActiveBatch are closely related to what Gartner refers to as intelligent business process management suites (iBPMS) because they provide full functionality for automating and managing the entire process life cycle.

Be ready to automate anything.

Build and automate workflows in half the time without the need for scripting. Gain operational peace of mind with real-time insights, customizable alerting, and more.
