Workload Automation by Arvato Systems
Individual IT steps are linked to process chains in which time-based and logical sequences are mapped.
Because we're experts.
Minor adjustments or major changes can be made using a range of helpful templates – with minimal requirements in terms of time and materials.
Because simple makes sense.
All processes and jobs throughout the entire company are managed via a single point of contact (SPOC).
Because it should run like clockwork.
Use "streamworks" to plan, maintain, control and monitor all of your automatable IT processes. Your advantages: Your IT operations workload is reduced while quality and efficiency increase.
Access to central documentation and orchestration of all business- and mission-critical scripts, programs, and (batch) processes.
Access to information
You have an overview of the most important aspects of ongoing production at all times. You can generate audit-compliant logs at the push of a button.
You can make up-to-the-minute changes in an agile, traceable way without impacting your master data.
An eye to the future
It’s easy to avoid overtime work outside of office hours by planning and changing future production days or special production runs in advance.
Planning: Configure streamworks via a central menu.
Whitelists or templates, which are later available as a pull-down menu in the stream definition, are generated for typical parameters like calendars, agents, or contact persons.
Planning: Use rule editors to intuitively define Process Logic.
File and file system events, numerous trigger events, process precursors, and file transfers are defined in a consistent, traceable way via standardized rule editors.
Preparation Script Language
Planning: Integrated Script Language for individual modifications.
Anomalous changes, associated conditions, and individual business service requests can be carried out easily with the integrated Preparation Script Language (PSL).
Maintenance: Set standards and create templates for recurring requirements.
"streamworks" offers templates for recurring requirements and provides support for modifying them. This facilitates simple implementation of standardized e-mail delivery and standardized contents and processes.
Maintenance: Versioning for efficient change management.
"streamworks" allows you to manage different versions of process chains (streams). It is also possible to create a planning version and several backup versions, in addition to the current production version.
Batch Release Management
Maintenance: Transport batches more efficiently than ever.
Transport new or modified stream definitions with export/import functions between folders, clients, or systems and carry out specific adjustments of transported definitions to the particular target environment.
Best Practice Views
Control: The right view for every issue.
The progress of ongoing jobs or file transfers, the status of agents, or runtime forecasts for planned streams are only a mouse click away. The incident view offers a single point of access for monitoring and making manual changes to the Workload Automation in "streamworks".
Control: Integrated File Transfer process including conversion.
Files are encrypted and transferred between "streamworks" agents without additional software. With "streamworks", files can be converted into a range of different formats; standard file transfer options are also available.
Control: Reading and analyzing results with the Joblog Parser.
Parser jobs (or analysis jobs) can be used to search log files from previous jobs for any given string of characters, which may trigger or prevent follow-up steps, depending on the results.
Self Service Portal
Monitoring: Self Service Portal for access anytime, anywhere.
With a web-based interface, you can access data from anywhere and at any time based on your user permissions, allowing you to monitor ongoing production.
Central Joblog & Stream Run Journal
Monitoring: Stream Run Journal and Joblogs for complete logging.
All information regarding automatic process control and manual changes or interventions is logged in a stream run journal in an audit compliant manner.
Monitoring: Integrated Report Engine for individual analyses.
"streamworks" automatically provides many different reports based on Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). You can also easily define additional, individual reports.
