Week four of Stonebranch Online 2021 is all about doing more with your Stonebranch Universal Automation Center (UAC). First, learn how to connect UAC with any application, platform, or system in your hybrid IT environments. Then, see what’s new in UAC version 7.1.
Connecting UAC with any Hybrid IT Application, Platform, or System
Peter Baljet, CTO for Stonebranch, introduced the Universal Integration Platform (UIP) and discussed how Stonebranch helps you keep up with the rapidly evolving list of platforms and services used in today’s hybrid IT environments (on-prem, cloud, or container).
After a quick overview of the new Integration Hub, Karthik Mohan, Solution Engineer for Stonebranch, gave a live demonstration of just how easy it is to download automations from the Integration Hub, then import and configure them in the UAC. Using the VMware: vSphere Integration as an example, Karthik launched a workflow to provision a virtual machine (VM), including a step to request approval for the provisioning via a Microsoft Teams: Send and Receive Notifications integration. Karthik also demonstrated how to create an integration using new self-service development tools that’ll be available in November. These new tools enable developers to create workflows-as-code directly from an integrated development environment (IDE). Yes, it’s as cool as it sounds!
What’s New in UAC Version 7.1
Colin Cocksedge, Director of Product Management at Stonebranch, offered an overview of the key updates in UAC version 7.1, which was released in early October 2021. He shared many new features, including:
- UIP updates and developer tools
- Sysplex support
- Security updates
- Platform and architecture updates
- Automation and orchestration enhancements

We put a lot of new features and enhancements in the latest UAC release — one session isn’t enough to cover them all. If you’d like to learn more about the 7.1 updates and enhancements, check out the full release notes or contact us.
