  • Enterprise Service Bus (publish/subscribe message bus)
  • User Interface customization capabilities, and
  • ...much more

Workflow Automation UI Customized Branding for Easy White Labeling

Many customers use FlowWright's user interfaces in their own applications - using API calls to choose elements (or whole webpages) of the FlowWright UI in their own User Interfaces.  It is important to those customers for FlowWright UI elements be consistent in look and feel with their own company and application standards.  FlowWright's new version 9.8 now allows you to customize the Flowwright UI to match your organizations UI scheme.  FlowWright now lets you change the following:

Secure Workflow Automation Processes

Deterring system and data theft is critical.  Security is front and center when architecting enterprise applications.  When deployed in the cloud, FlowWright chooses an ISO 27001 compliant cloud environment like MS Azure.  In addition, regular penetration testing  is done  to verify security and integrity.  From a design  point of view,  FlowWright is secured in several ways. 

FlowWright Support for Distributed File Systems

Distributed file systems (DFS) have existed for many years and implementations have evolved from being accomplished with hardware solutions to being accomplished with software.  In the old days, hard drives were combined using different RAID configurations to achieve DFS solutions.  Depending on the RAID level, disks were made to either replicate between each other or act like a single drive.  Now, operating systems have evolved to manage DFS and cloud-based drives and file systems inherently offer distributed file systems.

FlowWright v9.7 Highlights

The two biggest changes to the product with this release are 1) FlowWright is now a fully multi-tenant software applications, and 2) FlowWright now supports Distributed File Sychronization. 

Distributed File Synchronization in FlowWright

In distributed processing environments where multiple FlowWright servers automate and integrate processes and systems, files must be synchronized across multiple servers.  FlowWright's Distributed File Synchronization feature accomplishes this.   In a typical customer scenario, where multiple servers are being used the challenge is to ensure all processes have access to real time file and data info, regardless of which server created or houses the information.

v9.7 Self Updating and Optimizing Software Engines

At FlowWright’s heart is its workflow engine.  Over the years, we have added more dedicated engines that power important functionality.  Most recently, v9.7 includes a new service/engine to perform distributed file synchronization in distributed environments.  Now, FlowWright also ensures that engine configuration changes are picked up and acted upon without impacting execution and performance.  

v9.7 Using the New Place Holder Step In Workflows

A “Place Holder” step is just a pass-through step for organizing in the case of some workflow designs, and especially important to use in some circumstances where a synchronize step is used.  Here is a good example of where a placeholder step is needed in a workflow routing a task whose results lead to a synchronized step:

v9.7 FlowWright IPC - Inter Process Communication Within And Between Workflows

FlowWright version 9.7 introduces an extremely useful feature: Inter-Process Communication (IPC.)  IPC provides a pathway for workflows to communicate with each other - or even communicate within the same workflow.  To start with, let’s examine communication within the same workflow.

Transforming FlowWright: Full Multi-Tenant SaaS Support Now

FlowWright has always supported multi-tenancy from an engine perspective,  Many customers who embed FlowWright's workflow capabilities into their applications and products see their users use their own application UI rather than using FlowWright's UI.  And still some customers wanted to leverage FlowWright's UI elements and its engines in  Saas multi-tenant environments.  The main goal of SaaS  - Software-as-a-Service is to have one copy of software serving many tenants or customers.
