In this Blog, we would go through a Regulatory Compliance UseCase where a Customer wanting to perform a Transaction at a Gaming Kiosk undergoes a series of Background Checks and Validations to know if he is eligible to proceed with the Transaction, the checks while happening in the background through HCL Workload Automation in real time within a few seconds would seamlessly allow the Customer to proceed with the Transaction. Incase the Customer is blacklisted then he is blocked from performing the Transaction, likewise incase there is suspicion of Money Laundering, the Customer is blocked from progressing with the Transaction.
In this case study, we explore how a new certificate request placed in a ticketing tool like Service Now could be managed through HWA end to end and how HWA could generate this certificate request while also placing a CSR request. Besides also raising a change in Service Now to schedule the certificate addition to the KeyStore, which was stated in the original ticket. This is done by creating and scheduling a Jobstream to automate the certificate application step on the given scheduled date and time.
This Blog aims to showcase how we can use HCL Workload Automation to Implement a Request Management Workflow for a repeated task for a Service Line and how the complete request can be managed End to End through HWA.
To improve productivity and to save IT management costs and time, our customers are starting to move to the cloud environment and are moving heavy workloads from a set of on-premises machines to a resilient cloud infrastructure. So, our principal mission is to facilitate, secure, and support moving a workload automation deployment, from an on-premises infrastructure (minimum WA 95 FP3 version required) to any cloud infrastructure where Workload Automation (WA) is already supported.Link for the video guide: https://youtu.be/7AQHgCnpqLc
A question which everyone would have in mind while Upgrading to WA 9.5 is to manage all the Carryforwards that are present in old Production Plan on the older Version of the Master and to migrate them to the newer Master Server .

Let us begin with understanding of Azure what it is all about before moving to our Azure Resource Manager plugin and how it benefits our workload automation users. Azure is incredibly flexible, and allows you to use multiple languages, frameworks, and tools to create the customised applications that you need. As a platform, it also allows you to scale applications up with unlimited servers and storage.
This blog explains how to use Secure Network Connection (SNC) to extend SAP system security beyond these basic measures to include the additional protection of stronger authentication methods and encryption.
Let us begin with understanding of AWSCloudformation what it is all about before moving to our AWSCloudformation plugin and how it is benefits to our workload automation users. AWS CloudFormation provides a common language for you to model and provision AWS and third-party application resources in your cloud environment. AWS CloudFormation allows you to use programming languages or a simple text file to model and provision, in an automated and secure manner, all the resources needed for your applications across all regions and accounts. This gives you a single source of truth for your AWS and third-party resources. Coming to our AWSCloudformation, below diagram summarizes what is our plugin can perform, so our workload customers can make use of this to simplify their infrastructure management as well as easy to implement changes to infrastructure. To give more clarity on its benefits let us understand with below example, For a scalable web application that also includes a back-end database, you might use an Auto Scaling group, an Elastic Load Balancing load balancer, and an Amazon Relational Database Service database instance. Normally, you might use each individual service to provision these resources. And after you create the resources, you would have to configure them to work together. All these tasks can add complexity and time before you even get your application up and running. Instead, you can create or modify an existing AWS CloudFormation template. A template describes all your resources and their properties. When you use that template to create an AWS CloudFormation stack, AWS CloudFormation provisions the Auto Scaling group, load balancer, and database for you. After the stack has been successfully created, your AWS resources are up and running. You can delete the stack just as easily, which deletes all the resources in the stack....
