Information Flow Suite (iFX)

Adopt modern Robotic Process Automation (RPA) methods to formalize robotic information flows across the enterprise, one flow at a time.

About Encanvas iFX

Encanvas Information Flow Suite™ (IFX) is a toolset integrated into Encanvas aPaaS for formalizing machine to machine data movements and to mimic human behaviors for Robotic Process Automation (RPA) applications. 

The solution comes in two parts; a server platform for running automations and a client application used to design them without programming.  IFD levers the codeless data integrations power of the encanvas architecture to augment your business.

The Job It Does For You

Using Information Flow Suite you can:

Bridge between systems

  • Create trusted data flows between two or more third-party systems

Securely upload data from remote sources

  • Painlessly harvest data from sources within and beyond your firewall without having to undergo complicated software roll-outs

Automate by mimicking human tasks (RPA)

  • Use IFD’s robotic actions to reduce the number of tedious tasks workers do across your enterprise by using IFD to mimic what humans do to create a robotic information flow

Cleansing and transforming data quality

  • Use IFD extract, transform and load (ETL) tooling to cleanse, normalize, de-dupe, enrich and transform data – particularly useful for data mashup and customer data platform applications.

One platform for machine to machine data processing and software bots

Information Flow Suite is an easy to learn and use drag-and-drop user interface highlights available tools to invoke automation routines, transform data and post success or failure notifications. Automate more complex workflows by concatenating data flow ‘threads’ together.  The fragmentation of process flows makes it simpler to re-use the building blocks of one automation for another.

Trigger Components

Use these components to trigger events. Common forms include scheduled (timed) events, data table changes (such as the addition of a new record) and watch folder events.

Source Components

A series of components that enable business analysts to acquire data held in different formats including database, XML, CSV, binary code and other data formats.

Transform and Validate Components

These components are pre-designed building blocks for transforming, merging and converting data structures into ‘something else’.

Action Components

A series of action components are provided to enable business analysts to determine ‘what happens’ once the information flow has been actioned successfully (e.g. Send an email to the IT administrator confirming the procedure has been performed successfully).

Target Components

Target components configure the destination of data (i.e. Defining a destination folder or data table)

Get with the flow.
