Automation gateway

Automate the seamless flow of data across both cloud and local endpoints. With ThinkAutomation, you can connect your entire tech stack — without storing data in the cloud — via a hybrid automation gateway.

Automation gateway – overview

  • Use the ThinkAutomation studio to connect services in your stack, orchestrate the movement of data from point to point, and build automations to act on that data and handle processes
  • As part of its automation service, ThinkAutomation provides a local HTTP API powering fast, embedded data processing in a client environment
  • It also offers a public web API that acts as a secure gateway between web resources and your on-premises ThinkAutomation instance
  • The web API gives you a secure public endpoint for continuous data flows across cloud services
  • This hybrid integration scenario means you can keep databases and sensitive data sources on-site, securely use local data in cloud services, and process high data volumes without the usual cloud costs

Automation gateway – use cases

  • Query local databases and push info to public-facing forms and apps
  • Send data from cloud third parties to private on-premises systems
  • Process locally, then conditionally post parsed data to cloud services
  • Wait for a user’s data input response during an active automation
  • Create a chain of communication between disparate systems, and have them execute inter-app automations
  • Plus countless more, depending on your desired use case
