Manipulating Data for use on Orchestrator Published Data

The Kelverion Integration Pack for Data Manipulation is a compliant integration for the Microsoft System Center Orchestrator IT Process Automation Solution. This Integration Pack enables users to easily manipulate input data or compose output data to / from Orchestrator Published Data.

Workflow designers frequently encounter the need to extract and consume embedded text and data obtained from external sources that use custom formats such as XML or CSV. Similarly, in order to communicate with an external system, it is often necessary to compose detailed textual information using data obtained from the Orchestrator data bus.

Currently these tasks are difficult to accomplish as you need to build a custom object or series of objects each time to you need to work with different data formats. This not only requires development level skills but also introduces duplication into your workflows and results in solutions that are overly complicated, fragile and difficult to support.

The Kelverion Data Manipulation Integration Pack provides workflow designers with highly customizable activities that not only provide the capability to parse manipulate and compose detailed textual information but also to present this data as individual items on the published databus.  The IP activities have the ability to be inserted into any workflow and integrate seamlessly with the Orchestrator data bus.
