Business Process Automation

As part of IFSā€™s continuous goal to make our software easier to use and tailor, Business ProcessĀ Automation functionality has been implemented within IFS Cloud. As part of the solution, a workflow engine has been embedded within IFS Cloud to enhance the automation and tailoring experience of our users.

A Workflow is a sequence of tasks that process a single data collection from a business and industry interaction. Anytime data is passed between humans and/or systems, a workflow may be performed. With the Business Process Automation features that actively use the workflow engine is built into the Custom Event framework and the REST API/Projection framework, we can leverage existing functionality to trigger automation but also enhance it.

An example of this is triggering an event that is linked to a Workflow that invokes different automations such as calling a projection within IFS or even triggering the user to enter additional information based on a transaction they are performing within the system or ensuring validations of a process which is the ability to configure when an error message should appear to the user to stop a specific transaction or process due to conditions.
