titleFlux Overview

Flux schedules batch jobs and orchestrates file transfers with a unique architecture that integrates workflow, distributed processing, managed file transfer, monitoring, job scheduling, and error handling.

Flux excels in satisfying circumstances where batch processing jobs:

  • Need to run unattended to reduce processing time and expense, increase reliability, and meet service level agreements.
  • Need to execute in a secure and reliable manner among different platforms and systems.
  • Need to integrate data through processes that span shell scripts, command lines, databases, web services, mail, and files. 
  • Need to coordinate between many different functions running on a variety of platforms and machines.
  • Need to execute processes that are time-driven, process-driven, or manually triggered, and may have many workflow dependencies.
  • Need to run with the same programs and same (or varying) parameters, ensuring data integrity and consistency of processing.
  • Require flexible processing that includes scripting, command lines, REST, and Java.

Flux supports enterprises in their mission critical processing. Flux Customers include many banks and financial service providers, healthcare institutions, and OEMs.

Since 2000, Flux has proven itself as the backbone of many mission-critical applications across various industry sectors worldwide. 100% Java, Flux delivers sophisticated time and event scheduling, workflow design and execution, managed file transfer, enterprise integration via SOA and databases, and integrated security.
