Flux Workload Automation Customization Adds Flexibility for Customers
Last week, Flux, a leading workload automation and managed file transfer solution, made news with their recognition as a Strong Value Vendor in the highly respected Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) 2012 report on workload automation. Within the EMA report titled "EMA Radar for Workload Automation (WLA): Q2 2012", customers raved about Flux’s phenomenal customer service. Their hands-on approach has won them fans worldwide.
Today, Flux continues to add value with flexible functionality through custom workflow triggers for their customers. Arul Dhesiaseelan, a Senior Developer at Flux, announced the addition of a custom trigger for their popular software. The Web Service trigger makes orchestration of incoming Web Service requests effortless. Workflow triggers optimize resources and performance in business processes. Flux adds orchestration and manages these processes.
"Typically, Web service APIs act as enablers in a service oriented architecture (SOA), where disparate systems tend to work together to perform complex orchestration," stated Dhesiaseelan. "Flux has built-in monitoring and file transfer capabilities and collaborates with other workflows or external systems by listening for incoming web service requests in order to simplify orchestration," Dhesiaseelan continued.
Orchestrate Incoming Web Service Requests Effortlessly by Mr. Dhesiaseelan was released today on the Flux website. It is a brief overview of the use of this custom trigger, complete with use cases and screenshots. Within the document, he also invites users to work with him directly to determine whether a custom trigger can help in their projects.
Flux engineers often work closely with customers to create specific triggers tailored to their business requirements. In the case of the Web Services API trigger, it reduces developer time and cost and integration is much simpler.
