New “debugger” enables DevOps/ITOps/SecOps to test and refine workflow automations in-flight without needing to troubleshoot via tedious log files

BOSTON – October 16, 2019. Pliant, a leading robotic process automation (RPA) software provider for API-driven enterprise and service provider infrastructures, today released a new integrated Virtual Guide toolset to enable faster, more reliable implementation of automation workflows. Pliant’s workflow automation platform has the power to visually abstract code from the integration process and allow users to quickly build and deploy complex workflows across the business in real-time.

Pliant will showcase the toolset at Gartner IT Symposium 2019, to be held next week in Orlando. The company’s exhibit is Booth #133 in the AI Marketplace in Atlantic Hall.

“Pliant’s capabilities are well aligned with growing requirements to more quickly leverage automation to modernize IT Operations and DevOps,” said Bojan Simic, Founder and Chief Analyst at Digital Enterprise Journal. “The company’s technology is addressing several of the key end-user pain points in a unique fashion.”

Built within Pliant’s RPA platform, the intuitive Virtual Guide ”debugger” capability simplifies the ability to interrupt and edit workflows at any point, including how data is exchanged between APIs, modules and disparate systems along a path. DevOps/IT Ops/SecOps teams can also easily simulate highly sophisticated workflow integrations and edit breakpoints by using the debugger to identify and eliminate roadblocks before sending the workflow into production.

“The ability to troubleshoot automation workflows requires careful attention to how low code or no code is developed,” said Vess Bakalov, CEO, Pliant. “Overlook a step and the entire process can be compromised. With our debugger, DevOps, IT Ops, SecOps teams get precise, navigational-like direction for building and testing fail-resistant automation workflows, without the hassle of examining complex output from multiple different log files.”

Centralized automation saves organizations time and money, but only if the automation workflows work. Pliant’s RPA platform enables DevOps, IT Ops, and SecOps to quickly create sophisticated and robust workflow automations to tie multiple systems together and optimize performance and response across the business. Skilled staff spend more time on higher value projects when they spend less time troubleshooting automation workflows.

Key technical benefits include the ability to:

  • Display variable values in context
  • Edit and refine workflows pre-run and mid-run
  • Eliminate build-up of complexity in workflows
  • Step-in sub tasks in addition to main tasks

About Pliant

Pliant believes moving at the speed of digital business requires a fundamental change in the way corporations must deploy and manage technology. Speed and complexity of operations demand a solution that not only provides initial automation of provisioning and reduction of human error, but it must also ensure compliance, and in some cases provide automated real-time mitigation.

Pliant’s workflow automation has the power to provide these capabilities in a platform that visually abstracts code from the process allowing users to quickly create very complex workflows across multiple domains or silos within the business. Pliant’s automation capabilities allow businesses to better utilize their human assets while ensuring resilient and compliant environments that move with the speed of their digital business.
