The Automation Hub is a showcase of HCL Workload Automation’s ability to orchestrate both IT and Business workloads.
The automation and orchestration of DevOps needs, digital enterprises, hybrid cloud automation, and architectures, whatever comes to your mind covers a big spectrum of needs from IT tasks automation to Robotic Process Automation.
The Automation Hub is, literally, an innovative and always working progress showcase since we will be going to add many more items to it.
After this brief presentation, let's now try to understand in more detail what is inside.
It is a library of different types of objects and templates that will increase the use of plugins, so out-of-the-box integrations, reports templates, playbooks, event actions, then actually different types of items according to the different needs that customers might have. And, even better, you can create and release the integrations with it, also business partners created their plugins, that are on the Automation Hub and the best part is that customers can do it too, if they want to play with the automation.
Using the following link www.yourautomationhub.io you can see the entire catalog of Workload Automation plugins in addition for each plugin you can read the business scenario so you can better understand why that plugin is important and how it fits within a global workloads scenario.
Focusing on the out-of-the-box Plugins, to date we have more than 100 plugins.
