A detailed review will be provided on OpenText’s prominent automation products, Operations Orchestration (OO), Data Center Automation X (DCAx), and Server Automation (SA).
Operations Orchestration (OO)
Introduction and Key Features
Operations Orchestration (OO) is a solution developed to organize and automate business processes. Its primary goal is to seamlessly manage business processes by facilitating communication between different systems. The key features of OO include:
- Easy job development capability
- Simple content structure
- Advanced and centralized orchestration capability
- Open, expandable platform
- Enhanceable with RPA (Robotic Process Automation) robots
- Flexible licensing options
OO has a modular structure, providing a customizable solution tailored to the user’s needs. Automation workflows developed can be utilized under different automation streams, allowing you to reduce time and maintenance costs.
The ability to provide integration across different platforms is a significant feature that distinguishes OO. Drag and drop ready-to-use processes from the content library, identify error points, and log potential errors. Create your integration content within minutes using the API content creator. You can achieve this in the coded or codeless workflow designer.
With its user-friendly interface, OO simplifies the management of complex automation workflows, making it easy to define and automate business processes.
Operations Orchestration offers a wide range of applications, allowing the automation of routine tasks performed by IT professionals. These include password resets, file deletion for disk cleanup, database service restarts, new server installations, web server certificate renewals, and infrastructure tool management.
IT Service Management
OO can be used to manage and optimize IT services. Users can trigger workflows on OO through predefined forms. Workflows with role-based access controls can be initiated on the service management application. This allows users to securely perform operations without accessing the OO management console. The elimination of manual processes leads to increased user satisfaction.
Business Process Automation
The capabilities to automate and monitor various business processes assist companies in enhancing their efficiency.
Implementing security policies and responding swiftly to security breaches enhance the effectiveness of OO in the field of security management. Expired web server certificates can cause application disruptions and pose security vulnerability risks. Security alerts blocking web visitors can lead to a poor customer experience. Third-party certificate tools only offer web-based interfaces, making it challenging to obtain certificates and requiring manual data entry. With OO, automation can schedule and perform necessary processes without the need for human intervention, addressing various security concerns and ensuring seamless operations.
