​ELEMENTS Unveils Workflow Automation Engine

The tool allows users to streamline workflow processes by consolidating previously independent tasks into combined automated workflows operations for increased efficiency.

ELEMENTS’ Workflow Automation Engine is presented as maximizing productivity by letting storage administrators implement pre-defined, adjustable workflow operations chains. Virtually no coding skills required.

“Complex multi-layer workflow steps that weren’t easily possible before can now be performed via a single command,” it says. “Job parameters can be modified and adjusted prior to the start of a project, and assigned Media Roots prevent clutter in the project folders.”

For all workflow automation requirements that are not part of ELEMENTS’ set of pre-defined operation tools, embedded Python and Bash scripting support enables advanced users to add anything that is requested. The engine also gives administrators the ability to assign permission to launch jobs to those with or without ‘privileged’ status but allows them to withhold full access so projects can be launched in a secure manner.

The engine - available at IBC - integrates with the firm’s Media Library MAM and also Explorer and Finder to give users access to the pre-defined workflow operations. Also, the full integration of Slack enhances collaboration and communications.

“We are excited to take Workflow Automation to the next level while staying true to our basic approach of simplicity.” says André Kamps, CEO of ELEMENTS. “We are confident that our new Workflow Automation Engine will be a tremendous advantage for our customers, as even the most complex workflows become notably easier and faster.”
