Manage at Enterprise Scale

Automation HQ – A set of advanced capabilities in the Workato platform that companies can use to accelerate the scaling of automation across the enterprise with speed and efficiency – all from a single platform. It empowers teams across an organization to work with the agility of a startup while tapping into the resources and shared knowledge of the enterprise. It also provides IT teams with the essential centralized tools to manage users, data, connections and recipes across multiple workspaces in an organization.

To address the growing needs of organizations scaling out the use of automation across their business, Automation HQ provides the necessary tools for empowering all teams with centralized governance. It encompasses the following components:

  • Federated Workspaces – expand the ability of administrators to centrally provision workspaces and control apps, tasks, and other resources across all workspaces in an organization.
  • Business Operations Console – improve visibility and reporting for administrators to better understand usage, value, and user activity across all workspaces in an enterprise.
  • Advanced Lifecycle Management – make it easy for users of varying technical skills to collaborate on lifecycle management from within the product and with APIs with tools for reviewing and approving changes, and additional controls for deployments.
  • Custom Communities – enable customers to develop their own curated automation communities for sharing pre-built automations, templates, APIs, events and other reusable assets.

“We have multiple automations running across our Finance, HR and Business Intelligence functions with more planned,” said Karl Mosgofian, CIO of Gainsight. “The ability to centrally manage our use of Workato across multiple lines of business is essential to our continued success.”
