Automating processes

Using BMC Helix Innovation Studio automate the processes that you want to perform in a third-party system, such as Microsoft Azure, Jenkins, and Automation Anywhere Robotic Process Automation. Use the Process designer elements in BMC Helix Innovation Studio to connect with a third-party system and perform various actions in the system such as creating a virtual machine and storage account in Microsoft Azure, running a Jenkins job, and running Automation Anywhere Robotic Process Automation (RPA) bots. For example, to automate the creation of a virtual machine in Microsoft Azure, you can create a process by using the Create VM element in the Process designer.

Automating such actions by using the elements provides the following advantages:

  • Saves time and reduces user efforts.
  • Provides accuracy and error free execution.
  • Eliminates manual intervention in repetitive tasks.
  • Provides seamless integration with third-party systems.

The following table describes the Azure, Cloud Automation, and RPA Automation elements that you can use to automate processes:
