The open source solution provider Red Hat has released Red Hat Process Automation that it says will remove the barrier faced by IT developers and business analysts while dealing with the automation.
The company has introduced a collaborative environment where individuals can make changes to project assets independently and simultaneously. Using these shared workspaces can lead to a more efficient, iterative and agile development process.
The new solution will enable both IT and business development teams to work together, each contributing their own unique expertise, and each using tools and technologies tailored to their skills to create cloud-native applications aligned with key business objectives.
The company said its new offering has been optimized for deployment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, a Kubernetes platform, giving IT developers and business users a common infrastructure for building and scaling microservice-based applications across hybrid and multicloud environments.
Combined with other Red Hat Middleware on OpenShift, Red Hat Process Automation helps create an application environment where developers can innovate with higher productivity yet at the same time create solutions that are more reliable in production, said the company.
A new Red Hat-certified Kubernetes Operator simplifies this task by automating the installation, configuration and management of Red Hat Process Automation on OpenShift, which not only can reduce the workload on operations staff but can also improve the resiliency of process automation services.
The overall business automation value chain encompasses a spectrum of technologies. Process automation, which primarily includes capabilities for business decisions and processes, can be augmented with tools designed to automate specific, repetitive tasks, such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA). Red Hat is collaborating with RPA innovators to help customers better meet business objectives through end-to-end automation.
