Overview

Kapow Katalyst is a platform for application integration and process automation. It can integrate applications that weren't built to be connected and automate processes across such heterogeneous systems; cloud/SaaS applications with premise systems, legacy systems with modern web applications, back office systems with partner websites.

With our visual editor Design Studio (pictured), you click through the applications and data sources you want to integrate and create an automated workflow.

In Kapow Katalyst, these workflows are known as robots. As you build a robot, you are free to navigate through the applications as you integrate them. You can login to applications, extract data parts of a page, enter data into forms or search boxes, make menu selections, and scroll through multiple pages. Your robot can also access databases, files, APIs, and web services, exporting data from one application and loading it into another; transforming data as necessary along the way.

Once built, robots are uploaded to a repository in the Management Console. From here, they can be scheduled for batch-execution on the RoboServer or executed on-demand via Java or C# APIs, tailored REST services that are instantaneously available once the robots have been added to the repository, or exposed as special-purpose end-user web applications called Kapplets.

The Management Console is also responsible for load balancing, failover, monitoring of RoboServer health and management of user roles and permissions.

Next Steps

If you have not done so already, you should install Kapow Katalyst now.

We strongly recommend that you start by following the series of tutorials. The tutorials will take you through building your first robots, deploying them to the Management Console and exposing them as Kapplets.
