FlowForce Server can automate data transformations, report and document generation, and other tasks on dedicated servers, virtual machines, or workstations. These resources could be scaled for the size and volume of the project needs. Users are able to define specific activities triggered based on date and time. Detecting new data or on HTTP command can help trigger data integration activities. Enterprise level data integration is eased by this tool. Data transformations jobs could be triggered one time by a specific date and time and it could trigger a onetime job or repetitive activities. File triggers get initiated by changes in a specified file. Creation of a new file in a hot folder too can be a trigger. Remote triggers can be initiated by polling changes on a HTTP server. Management of the server is through an intuitive Web interface.
With the security features built-in, departments can share a physical set of hardware without any problems about data privacy or integrity. Multi-processor servers can let you balance peak loads with this isolation process. Different department work could be allocated to different cores to even out the load. Data transformations and rendering of reports, documents and e–forms are automated. Reports can be FTP’ed to specified servers. Flow control definition lets you use loops, conditions, result evaluation, and error handling. Detailed logs are available. Multi-tiered access control helps maintain who all need access based on roles, permissions and privileges. E-mail alerts could be issued to specified people in case of completion of a job step or errors. This is a very good tool.
