A couple of months ago, the automator got a new important capability: It can now integrate into applications via SOAP.
That opens a new dimension of automations. For example 4me provides a REST API which delivers JSON data objects. SAP provides (mainly) SOAP, meaning that every message MUST be encoded using XML. JSON and XML are quite different, and look rather incompatible:

Don’t worry! The automator engine translates JSON to XML and vice versa automatically. Therefore a 4me integration into SAP and vice versa is easily done.
Many ERP applications can now be connected and integrated in order to reduce costs and eliminate manual tasks:
- Microsoft Navision
- In fact, the complete Microsoft Dynamics suite
- and many more
