SOFTWARE ROBOTS

Machines can be better than humans at getting data crunching and tedious admin jobs done.  That leaves more time for humans to do what they do best.  Meet Encanvas Software Robots.

About Our Software Robots

In business, there are many information flows that can be streamlined through automation to deliver information to the right place, at the right time, in the right form. Encanvas Software Robots form new automation layer across your enterprise to take care of the jobs computers do best. This non-invasive software layer levers the data integrations power of the Encanvas Ecosystem to formalize robotic information flows across the enterprise.

The Jobs Our Robots Do

It’s easy to design apps around present-day roles and operational norms but that can lead to missed opportunities to leverage digital technologies. We use software robots for all sorts of jobs, like safely moving data into the cloud, validating data integrity, transforming data formats, populating data records, capturing data… swivel chair applications… it’s endless.

The good thing about our software robot technology is its ability to scale. You can deploy as many robots as you need to get the jobs done, in as many places. And it’s all managed centrally through our SecureSpaces cloud and edge computing platform.

Edge Analytics

Deploy Encanvas Software Robots in autonomous mode to analyze data in IoT devices and end-points speeding up the delivery of insights; optionally to then perform additional actions or upload to another data source or processing engine. Configure to run scheduled events or act on data as it arrives.

IoT Sensor Networks

Deploy Encanvas Software Robots to act on data as an embedded endpoint sensing device, posting reports to centralized business intelligence systems. Enterprises can develop an early warning system across their business tracking activities, throughput volumes, data behaviors etc. as part of their business models.

Swivel Chair Task Automation

There are many tedious data crunching tasks that can be automated by robots. one of the most common occurs when users are required to reference more than one system, or copy data from one system into another. Robots can automate these tasks to free up time for humans to do more useful things.

Data Harvesting and Pre-Processing

Sometimes it’s safer to send data to cloud systems from ‘the edge’ than push out requests from the centre. Our robots perform a crucial job to maintain the safety and integrity of cloud data marts by serving up pre-vetted data from endpoints to clouds.

Machine-to-Machine Processing

Not all data processes require a human to examine or act on data. Our software robots can acquire, transform, process and analyze data for workflows to displace the role of humans when they’re not needed to add value. Robots can work 24×7, operate consistently and every process activity (and output) can be tracked.

Dig deeper…

What separates Create Design Studio from all other integrated development environments lies in its ability to facilitate across the desk near real-time authoring of live wireframes by dramatically reduce the coding overhead associated with the authoring process. 

Reducing the programming overhead also reduces applications re-working, tuning and testing.  With Create Design Studio, IT teams can engage business stakeholders across-the-desk, not in back rooms.

Designed with edge and cloud computing in mind, Encanvas is a modern web server architecture that fully leverages Microsoft .NET.

Trigger

The Trigger Components options list provides a listing of available trigger types for initiating a published process. Another event option (not included in this list) is the ability to manually run a process by selecting options provided in the menu. ‘Run Process Once’ immediately runs a process regardless of the Trigger Component.

Trigger Components include:
● Timer Trigger
● Directory Trigger
● Daily Trigger
● Monthly Trigger

Source

The Source options list provides a selection list of accessible data source connectors that can be easily configured. Options include XML files, database table rows, grouped database table rows and CSV files in a directory or in a database.

Source Components include:
● CSVs in a Directory
● XML Files
● CSV Attachment in a Database
● Database Table Rows
● Grouped Database Table Rows
.

Transform and Validate

With this control, configure any transformation or validation step you wish to perform on the sourced data.

Action(s)

Here you can program the software robot to perform tasks. There are a large number of choices ranging from data cleansing, de-duping, re-purposing etc. along with key-fill and screen scraping options.

Target

 Determine where any data processed needs to be delivered. Specify the particulars of the receiving system (i.e. in which locations/fields data is to be stored and in what format).

Result

Once the process has been run, with this step designers can specify what they want to see happen – such as sending an email in the event an action succeeds or fails.
