Terminal Emulation Automation

Automate tasks on any system with a terminal emulator


In the mixed environments of modern enterprises, employees need to access a variety of applications across multiple systems. For example, an administrator may have to log into and pull data from a program on a mainframe legacy system. A terminal emulator gives you access to remote terminals from your current system.

But in a streamlined and automated enterprise, access isn't good enough. Automate integrates terminal emulation into your comprehensive business process automation strategy, expanding the possibilities of which tasks can be automated.

How Do You Automate Terminal Emulation?

The Automate terminal emulator exactly simulates the procedures that a user normally performs during a terminal session—automatically and without any need for writing code. Tasks on legacy systems can be monitored from the same central location as all your automated workflows.

All major emulation types are supported, including plain text, TTY, ANSI, VT52, VT100, VT220, VT320, TN3270, and TN5250.

TCP/IP, SSH, and Serial connections are supported as well.

Automate goes beyond simple screen scraping. After you pull data from a terminal window, Automate can write it into a variety of useful formats, such as:
