Opalis Integration Server (part of Microsoft System Center) has been designed to make it easy to build Policies that define how systems communicate. The configuration that is required is to define what data is going in and out of a target system. Your automation builders are shielded from the complexity of the target system while still having control on how data is transferred between each system. Policies are easy to read, update, and maintain. There is no scripting involved and all the documentation necessary is in the Policy or documentation. If the builder of Policy leaves, then her replacement will easily pick up where she left off.
Opalis' business process automation solution features three critical pillars - orchestration, integration, and dynamic process automation. It provides tight coupling of these elements and thus enables organizations to streamline and automate business processes regardless of scope, scale, and complexity.
Orchestration empowers business managers and IT developers to collaborate on automated process designs using Opalis' easy-to-use, visually compelling, and intuitive interface. It also provides centralized control of business processes that span functional departments, computer networks, and diverse IT environments.
Opalis' Orchestration engine oversees and executes discrete, independent automation activities in a cohesive, coordinated, and intelligent manner. Opalis collects and transforms data/events into actionable information which facilitates proactive decision-making. Finally, it enables real-time, centralized continuous improvement decentralized sub-processes.
Orchestration is not effective in the absence of integration. Opalis Integration Server enables systems and applications to read, modify, and exchange critical data that drive the decision-making of humans and machines. Most business processes consist of disparate systems, diverse environments, and multiple applications, so tight integration is a necessary component of complete business process automation.
The final pillar of business process automation is dynamic, rule-based, automated execution across multiple systems. Automation enables organizations the streamline or eliminate repetitive, manual tasks. Opalis Integration Server provides these capabilities without requiring deep programming expertise. Opalis' automation platform delivers more value by eliminating barriers to the entry and change, not by imposing requirements and limitations. It accelerates development and promotes reuse of intellectual property. Finally, it centralizes control over the development process to eliminate the hassles of managing and maintaining code over the long term.
The Opalis automation platform is comprised of unique data bus and intelligent workflow capabilities, which enable script-free integration and orchestration to automate context adaptive processes. This provides the flexibility required to leverage existing customer IT investments, apply and enable rapid implementation, and quick return on investment!
