Version 7.11 of Flux, a proven leader in sophisticated job scheduling, managed file transfer, automated dataflows, and ETL automation, has been released and is generally available.

Building on Flux strengths, 7.11 adds several new features including:

Overall Ease of Use — From a single point of control, design, deploy, and track your jobs and workflows using a drag-and-drop visual interface, right in your web browser.

Enhanced Security and Control — With the web-based Flux Operations Console, you can watch over and monitor all your jobs, workflows, and file transfers with a single point of control. Version 7.11 adds granular user access controls to govern assigned tasks for staff. Set privileges and customize tabs to increase security and efficiency.

Improved Promotion and Migration — Save time and reduce errors between development, QA, and production. From the Operations Console, copy configurations and workflows for simple migration and promotion between instances and environments.

RESTful Web Services API Adds Interface Flexibility — Expose workloads as a service. Connect to and control Flux remotely using any programming language that supports RESTful web services. Schedule a workflow in Flux from other SOA services in the cloud, like Mule ESB.

Cognos Integration Provides End-to-End Data Warehouse Automation Solution — Integration with Flux eliminates scripting and complex integration requirements and enables Cognos to be managed as part of a reliable, comprehensive cross-platform workload automation solution. Additionally, the need to purchase the Cognos SDK is eliminated.

Edit, Control, Monitor — Designing multiple job flows is straight forward with the flexibility to suspend jobs, structure a collection of independent jobs, and the capability to set up custom calendars. With the Audit Trail, you can run reports to determine what tasks, steps, actions, jobs, and workflows executed within a specified time frame. With the Audit Trail History feature, operators can track and time workflows to quickly identify bottlenecks and poor resource utilization.
