Workflow Automation for Complex IT and Business Processes

The pace of IT and business is increasing, and writing scripts for every repetitive task or process just isn’t possible anymore. There are too many applications, multiple dependencies between systems, and not enough time or people to update and maintain scripts.

ActiveBatch’s workflow development capabilities take workflow management to a new level. Advanced features help developers build automation workflows faster. ActiveBatch offers an intuitive user interface with an easy-to-use workflow designer, featuring hundreds of production-ready, drag-and-drop Job Steps for commonly scripted workflow processes and actions.

Automate processes across your organizations - from running reports, processing customer data, streamlining user onboarding of new team members in human resources workflows, and more with ActiveBatch’s workflow automation platform.

Powerful Enough for IT, Intuitive Enough for Business

IT and business teams often want similar end results, but each team has different skills and different technical requirements for their automated workflows.  Business needs a business workflow tool that's simple to use (like Kissflow or Zapier), enables team collaboration, and fits with their project management processes, while IT needs a set of tools that are powerful enough to achieve much more technical and complex tasks (like Informatica Cloud or Microsoft Dynamics) without compromising scalability.

Examples of workflow automation span across business and IT, with both sides aiming to create workflows that automate time-consuming manual processes. An automated business process might attach and transfer a PDF or Excel doc via email or may be tied to data entry or customer support. On the IT side, an automated process might include transforming and transferring a SQL database to an Oracle database within a 2-hour service level agreement (SLA) window. 

ActiveBatch even helps IT streamline business policies across the enterprise and generate full audit trails on all jobs and workflows. This helps teams enact granular permissions and enforce standardized governance. ActiveBatch provides workflow automation tools to meet both business and IT process automation needs within a single framework.

IT can centralize control over its critical systems and applications, monitor metrics, job scheduling requirements, script lifecycle and SLA management, and cloud/virtual infrastructure optimization. Meanwhile, business operations stakeholders can monitor and kick off their own workflows from a highly secure, user-friendly interface – the ActiveBatch Self-Service Portal. Plus, a native mobile app for iOS and Android gives users simple, secure, on-the-go access to their automation solution.

The result is a platform with greater capabilities, less fragmentation, and a better user experience for everyone.

Low-Code Integration and Assembly

Automate custom business and IT workflows with ActiveBatch’s Integrated Jobs Library, which includes hundreds of Job Steps in a drag-and-drop interface, making it easy for users to pass data and manage dependencies between various applications and technologies. Granular job configurations and shared objects allow you to adapt to unique business rules, approval processes, interactive/manual task integration, and other requirements for complex workflow orchestration.

The ActiveBatch Service Library extends the power of the Integrated Jobs Library with enterprise application connectors and 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 application or technology with an API.

ActiveBatch provides business process automation integration with tools like Microsoft apps suite, HR platforms, customer relationship management (CRM) software, enterprise resource management (ERP), business process management (BPM) and BI tools

Real-Time, End-to-End Visibility with Unified Workflow Software

ActiveBatch provides a flexible, policy-driven framework that makes it possible for IT to unify digital transformation efforts across the enterprise, whether in business process management (BPM), IT process management (ITPM), low-code assembly, script lifecycle management, or just about any other use case.

IT can unify the automation of repetitive tasks and eliminate bottlenecks because ActiveBatch workflow management software tracks all actions, changes, and instance histories for optimum visibility and control across the enterprise. Plus, with dozens of easy-to-digest views that provide critical information in real time – for all integrated workflows, systems, and tasks – IT has a single location from which it can monitor and manage automated processes from dozens of environments, whether cloud-based, on-prem, or hybrid.

Simplify Maintenance with References and Variables

ActiveBatch’s built-in References and Variables allow users to reuse, rather than rewrite or recreate, their workflow logic. Instead of using traditional copy-and-paste, References allow users to easily make changes to one job and automatically pass down those changes to hundreds or thousands of jobs 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 and form constraints for proper execution of related jobs.

Continuous Improvement and Delivery

ActiveBatch streamlines Continuous Delivery and Development with collaboration tools for improved IT agility and DevOps. For example, ActiveBatch’s Check-Out | Check-In feature provides a team-based approach to workflow development by allowing multiple developers simultaneous access to the same object(s) or one developer exclusive access. Upon Check-In, ActiveBatch’s built-in Conflict Resolution tool helps identify any conflicting changes made to objects.

Frequently Asked Questions

Workload automation platforms enable users to automate manual, repetitive IT processes, reducing the need for manual human intervention. Market-leading workload automation solutions provide no-code workflow development, real-time monitoring, alerting, auto-remediation, script lifecycle management tools, and much more. Learn more about workload automation capabilities.

Job scheduling tools, or job schedulers, allow users to schedule automated workflows to run at specific times. Enterprise job schedulers also support event-driven automation, providing event triggers and support for constraint-based scheduling. Such job schedulers provide alerting and monitoring, and programmatic integrations so users can design and manage end-to-end workflows from a single location. Explore ActiveBatch’s advanced scheduling capabilities.

ActiveBatch Workload Automation and Enterprise Job Scheduling enables users to build, monitor, and orchestrate automated processes that span the data center, IT operations and infrastructure, business applications, and more. With programmatic integrations and low-code API accessibility, users can coordinate data, dependencies, and resources between IT and business systems. See what you can accomplish with ActiveBatch.
