Integrate, Automate, and Orchestrate in Half the Time

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 enterprise RPA because WLA integrates programmatically with a wide range of applications, systems, and technologies, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS EC2, VMware, and more. 

By providing a much broader scope of automation with greater efficiency and reliability, WLA solutions enable IT to orchestrate and automate complex, end-to-end workflows that connect databases, IT infrastructure, and business applications.


ActiveBatch Integrated Jobs Library

Automate Across Clouds with Confidence

ActiveBatch's Integrated Jobs Library provides hundreds of no-code, platform-neutral tasks and API connections. Drag-and-drop prebuilt tasks can be used to assemble processes across disparate systems and applications. Visualize your workflows, run simulations, and optimize business processes in the cloud from an integration and automation hub.

  • Infrastructure management: Microsoft Azure, VMware, Amazon EC2, and other cloud platforms

  • Business automation: Microsoft Office 365, HR platforms, enterprise resource planning (ERP), business process management (BPM), and Power BI (Power Platform)  

  • Repeatable processes: provisioning Azure machines, system reboots, automated incident management

  • Datacenter: Microsoft SQL and Oracle Databases, Informatica, big data (Hadoop) processes

Monitoring and Alerting

Integrate or consolidate your point solutions, legacy job schedulers, and in-house automation tools. Then monitor and manage processes across the enterprise using real-time views into all instances, workflows, and environments.

  • Analyze data and workflow progress, from high-level dashboards to detailed, in-depth analyses and reports

  • Prevent overruns on critical processes with automated SLA Monitoring

  • Access in-depth reports that make it easy to optimize hybrid IT environments

  • Resolve issues in record time with automated alerting and detailed logging – or, avoid those issues altogether with auto-remediation


Policy-Driven Governance

Built for Compliance and Security

By automating and orchestrating processes from a single platform, users can stay on compliance’s good side with default settings for the whole enterprise. 

  • Streamline business rules across teams, departments, and geographic locations

  • Drive governance throughout the enterprise with full audit trails on all jobs and workflows

  • Prevent unauthorized access with granular permissioning, multi-factor authentication, and privileged access management

  • Minimize the impact of unwanted changes with complete revision histories and version rollbacks


Smart Queue and Heuristic Queue Allocation

Dynamic and Intelligent Resource Management

Orchestrate resources across multi-cloud and hybrid IT environments using infrastructure automation and resource provisioning tools from ActiveBatch. Intelligently distribute resources, provision and deprovision servers, and ensure that all virtual- and cloud-based servers are properly configured in order to stay ahead of real-time business demands.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cloud orchestration tools enable users to manage data between disparate cloud platforms, or between cloud platforms and on-premises data centers, using automated processes, monitoring, and data analysis. Cloud orchestration tools often apply intelligent automation to optimize the provisioning and de-provisioning of virtual machines. Explore ActiveBatch’s cloud management capabilities.

ActiveBatch provides integrations with Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, Informatica Cloud, VMware, and more, enabling IT to orchestrate and coordinate processes that are truly cross-platform. ActiveBatch offers dozens of integrations including for SQL Server, Dynamics AX, SCCM, SCVMM, and more, and offers low-code API accessibility so users can integrate virtually any application available on Azure Marketplace.

ActiveBatch is an enterprise job scheduler providing seamless automation for routine tasks and complex workflows. Manage data across systems, transfer files between departments, or manage cloud-based resources using intelligent workload management tools. With ActiveBatch, users can execute jobs based on granular date/time schedules or using advanced event triggers. See what you can accomplish with ActiveBatch.

ActiveBatch is an enterprise job scheduling and workload automation platform that enables users to develop, monitor, and manage automated processes similar to RPA. This includes routine business processes, file transfers, data management, resource provisioning, and more. So while an RPA platform can be used to automate a manual task, ActiveBatch enables users to seamlessly incorporate that task into cross-platform workflows using low-code devops. See what you can accomplish with ActiveBatch.

RPA implementations automate rules-based tasks by manipulating user-interfaces to input data. Workload automation (WLA) tools programmatically integrate with applications for processes that are much more reliable. For example, RPA software bots can automate a series of repetitive tasks whereas WLA can orchestrate those tasks across databases, business applications, and IT infrastructure, using machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize machine resources in real time. Explore ActiveBatch’s process orchestration capabilities.
