#2 - API Tasks: Cloud-Powered Automation Freedom

Number 2 is a personal favorite of mine: API Tasks. This is a game-changer. Imagine executing automations in the cloud, free from the shackles of on-premise infrastructure. Whether you're integrating in real-time through a user interface or processing tasks in the background, the possibilities are endless. Built with a familiar low-code approach, these tasks are perfect for database lookups, CRUD operations via API in an application of choice... you name it. If it's API-driven, API Tasks have you covered. As organizations transition from a task-first architecture for automations to a process-first architecture for automations, these API tasks will become immensely valuable.

And now, drumroll, please... my top pick from the .31 release is the Co-Pilot for Automators. Yes, it’s here! Think of it as your AI sidekick, ready to transform your process descriptions into ready-to-run automations. Whether you're in the Process Composer or the bot development Workbench, Co-Pilot is there to speed things up, even suggesting the next best action to take. It's built on a proprietary AI model, fueled by decades of automation experience and a treasure trove of anonymous metadata from millions of automation runs. And the best part? It gets smarter with every use, continually refining its capabilities based on your feedback.
