Synopsis

One of the most frequent questions we got during KEG 2012 was: When can I use Kinetic Task to automate workflows outside of Kinetic Request? The answer is right now with the release of Kinetic Task 3.0.

Kinetic Task 3.0 introduces the concept of source roots, which are external data sources that initiate a task process (or have a Kinetic Task process initiated on their behalf) and provide the data that determines the process flow.  By exposing the Kinetic Task process initiation, it is now possible to have applications other than Kinetic Request (such as ITSM Incident, Salesforce, or Oracle Identity Management) leverage the power of the Kinetic Task engine.

The Kinetic Security Language (KSL) is a powerful, dynamic access control strategy that will be incorporated into many of our products and is making its debut in Kinetic Task 3.0.  Kinetic Task 3.0 has removed dependencies on system libraries, becoming completely 64bit compatible, can now be run from Java supported platform (including running on a Mac), and installs in 5 minutes or less.  Additionally, various improvements have been made to the Administrator, Configuration, and Task Management consoles to simplify Kinetic Task management, and the Tree Management console has been introduced for managing task trees associated to any source root.  Lastly, the Kinetic Task API has been expanded and continues to support SOAP Web Services, REST, and direct BMC® Remedy®.
