A Single Unified Intelligent Automation Platform 

Cortex Intelligent Automation Software delivers seamless integration to your third-party systems and allows flows to fluently interact with external systems.

Cortex supports extensive interfacing to devices, systems and applications through a flexible interface framework.  

The extensive orchestration capabilities allow organisations to take an incremental approach to deploying automation. A Rip-and-Replace approach is not required, enabling existing investments in technologies and infrastructures to be leveraged. 

CORTEX INTEGRATIONS AND INTERFACES

Protocol support:

Open standards interfaces enable Cortex to interface with thousands of 3rd party systems or devices. 

These generic interfaces enable communication to thousands of devices and systems. These include:

  • HTTP REST & SOAP Web Services
  • SFTP/FTP
  • SSH/Telnet
  • SNMP
  • TCP Sockets
  • IMAP
  • CORBA/3GPP

Interface support:

These are pre-built communication interfaces for dedicated 3rd party systems and devices.

Graphical function blocks for each method allow seamless interaction from within the Cortex Flows.

This category includes:

  • Microsoft Powershell
  • LDAP (Active Directory File System)
  • LDAPS
  • Windows OS (Event Log, Service Control)
  • Networking Windows WMI
  • CyberArk Secure Credential Management
  • RPA (Screen Object Control)
  • Databases like
    • Oracle
    • SQL Server
    • ODBC & OLEDB database connectivity

Telecommunications Specific Interface Support:

Cortex supports all of the TM Forum openAPI standard interfaces.

Cortex can parse on-demand any TM Forum openAPI interface definition file and automatically generate the relevant process fragments; using Cortex’s drag-and-drop flow authoring GUI, these process fragments can then be positioned at the appropriate stage of your end-to-end process flow.

When invoked as part of a process execution, these process fragments will validate the data that is being exchanged, send the data to the correct API endpoint, and validate the response.

This greatly simplifies the process of integrating Cortex into your existing OSS, BSS and network stacks.
