First of all, what is data?

Data can be any sort of information stored in a file or in a database

What does working with data means?

Loading data into the database, exporting data from the database,  transforming data from one format into another and validating

Why automating working with data is important?

The Data may be stored on the FTP server or in the Cloud. Coping this data manually can be a very time consuming and costly operation. Our software can connect to remote servers and download the data automatically. Here is a basic automation workflow example.  The boxes are called action. Every action is designed to do one job well. The action can have two statuses success (blue) or failure (orange). The green box is a starting point. In this example, the data is received via email.
