Automation as a Service

Convenient automation of your processes – simple, fast, reliable.

We support you long-term on your automation journey. Cloudomation enables extensive automation of software and processes adapted to your needs. We take care of the development of automations for you. As a starting point, we identify a first use case – a process to be automated. Building on this, we automate more and more redundant, time-consuming and manual processes step by step. Your effort in the process? Hardly any.

So that you are free to focus on the important things again.

Hosting Cloudomation

We host Cloudomation for you in our secure cloud or as an on-premise managed service in your data center – so you really don’t have to worry about a thing. Alternatively, your IT-experts can host Cloudomation themselves in a cloud of your choice or in your own data center.

Process logic

Schedules
Through these, automations are executed at a precise time or in specific intervals. Schedules are fully customisable and can include complex dependencies.

Webhooks
With webhooks, automations are initiated externally and can accept parameters and data as well as forward those to the automation.

Polling
Here, Cloudomation monitors your third-party systems and reacts to any changes. For example, you can set new entries of a database as starting points of automations.
This way you won’t miss anything anymore!

Manually
Take off at the push of a button!

Process logic is defined in flow scripts in Python. You can define any complex or simple process logic with Python to quickly extend your flows.
 
Modular
Flows can call each other and thus form a process. Individual flows can also be part of several processes.
 
They form a meta-level above the process logic where reactions to changes, inputs and outputs of processes are defined. For example, a notification can be sent if a process remains in a particular state for too long, or the a retry can be defined at predetermined fixed points in the process if an error occurs.
 

All our other features can be used in the process logic:

Detailed logging ensures the 
traceability and auditability of your automations.

For each step you can read what was done when and which data was read or written when.

FAQ

You can automate all software components that have an application programming interface (API) or allow some other kind of remote access. Cloudomation can monitor the state of a system, it lets you react to changes in a system, read data from a system, process your business logic to transform data or make decisions, write data to a system, or execute scripts on systems.

 Cloudomation is used in IT-departments and overlooked by  IT-experts – therefore coding experience is needed. This is what maked the tool so flexible, yet powerful. Automation processes are defined in Flow Scripts. Flow Scripts are written in Python, using normal Python syntax plus Cloudomation specific functions.

Cloudomation Flow Scripts are scalable and they have job control features. You can pause executions and resume them at a later time. Executions can stay active for months. With Cloudomation, you can easily schedule and monitor script execution. It allows detailed introspection through logging of all inputs and outputs, which creates a consistent audit trail and simplifies debugging. Through the simple input and output definitions available in Cloudomation, you can manage large and complex automation processes easily.

Yes, you can. However, you are limited in what you can do. You cannot install modules and you can only use a limited amount of resources on the platform. Cloudomation is not intended as a Python IDE. You can execute complex Python scripts on other systems through Cloudomation. You can also use Cloudomation to deploy an environment where you can run your Python scripts, or use Cloudomation to execute scripts on already existing environments.

No, you don’t. Cloudomation is available as a cloud platform.
