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. This technical debt prevents businesses from developing reliable processes, puts additional pressure on IT, and increases 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.
 


ActiveBatch Integrated Jobs Library

Design Workflows 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 processes from an integration and automation hub.

  • Business automation: Microsoft apps suite, HR platforms, enterprise resource planning (ERP systems), business process management (BPM), and BI tools       

  • Automated incident management: bi-directional integrations with industry leaders like ServiceNow and SCSM for improved service levels

  • Secure managed file transfers: SFTP, FTPS, and more, with advanced file event triggers and parallel transfer capabilities


Monitoring and Alerting

Integrate and consolidate your point solutions, legacy job schedulers, and in-house automation technology. 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 Management

  • Access in-depth reports that make it easy to optimize the IT environment

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

 

Policy-Driven Governance

A Platform Built for Compliance

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, on-premises or in the cloud

  • 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

Frequently Asked Questions

ActiveBatch is an enterprise job scheduling platform that allows users to develop, monitor, and manage automated processes, including automating much of what RPA technology covers, from day-to-day business tasks, to file transfers, and data management. ActiveBatch enables users to automate and add tasks to end-to-end workflows, reducing human error and streamlining complex processes. ActiveBatch use cases include business process automation, datacenter automation, and much more. See what you can accomplish with ActiveBatch.

RPA implementations automate simple, repetitive tasks by engaging the user-interfaces (UI) of other applications. Workload automation software integrates programmatically with applications for end-to-end processes that are much more reliable and stable. For example, RPA bots can be used to automate manual, rules-driven tasks whereas WLA is used to orchestrate processes across the enterprise, using machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize machine resources in real time. See what workload automation can do for you.

Yes. The ActiveBatch Self-Service Portal is a web-based application with an intuitive user-interface so that non-IT users can easily execute and monitor critical and ad hoc processes. Business users and Help Desk teams can run data queries, onboarding, file transfers, and more, while IT maintains control over development, permissions, and security. Explore the ActiveBatch Self-Service Portal.

From Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Business Process Services, 2019: “We foresee that remnants of the current RPA deployments will be around for the next decade or more (similar to how we still have green screen applications and mainframes). However, we predict a renaissance of the existing market offerings —a shift from task-centric to more process-level automation and eventually to process orchestration.” Explore how ActiveBatch drives process orchestration.
