Fluunt Data Flow Automation

Fluunt is an EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) server that is used to automate day to day business process workflows. Fluunt is a platform that is used to automate business process workflows resulting in improved productivity, increased accountability, help with compliance and added structure around processes.

What is Business Process?
A business process is a set of interrelated tasks linked to an activity that spans functional boundaries. Business processes have starting points and ending points, and they are repeatable.

  • Why business process automation?

    • Improved productivity and operational efficiency
    • Expanded document-centric controls and streamlining
    • Strong organizational and individual accountability
    • Rapid access to information and process intelligence
    • Rejuvenation of legacy investments and strong process ROI
  • Fluunt Business Process Workflows

    • A workflow consists of process logic and routing rules.
    • The process logic defines the sequence of tasks and the routing rules that must be followed, as well as deadlines and other business rules implemented by the workflow engine.
    • Pipeline processing is where an input file is subjected to a linear succession of processing. If the processing is disrupted at any point then the whole process is either stopped or forked into an exception process.
    • Processing of documents/files using business rules in a sequential fashion. 
    • Fluunt does not define the business rules, it merely interacts with the business actors to provide input and extract the output while recording the process. It provides pipeline processing of files based on XML definitions of the process.
    • Error handling and recovery is built into the process such that errors can interrupt the process and notifications sent for manual intervention.
    • Fluunt simplifies process automation using pipelines of tasks chained together to fulfill a process definition.
    • Using XML, Fluunt performs an automated task, such as data transfer, encryption, or file processing triggered either on a timed schedule or a ‘Hot Folder’.
    • Workflows in Fluunt are defined as ‘Services’.
    • A Service comprises of ‘Tasks’.
    • Tasks are executed using ‘Processors’.
  • Fluunt Features

    • Powerful Task Scheduling

      • Fluunt embeds a scheduler allowing repeating tasks to be scheduled according to a flexible set of rules.
    • Hot Folder Triggers

      • A Hot Folder is a folder constantly monitored by Fluunt. Whenever a file is copied or written into the hot folder, the associated task is executed and the file is moved to the next hot folder in the pipeline for further processing.
      • Fluunt allows process automation based on a files being added or changed within a folder on disk. This provides an intuitive and user-friendly way for end-users to interact with applications and can greatly simplify integration between applications that can output and ingest files.
    • Workflow and Error Handling

      • Fluunt adds the capability to create workflows by chaining together hot folders and tasks, allowing complex manual processes to be automated. Error handling workflows can also be set up to send out
        e-mails or notifications when critical problems occur.
