You can do more with OpCon than you think.
SMA Technologies has a 40-year history of client-driven development. Now we want to empower our community of innovative users to share their knowledge. We've created a GitHub workspace for connectors, utilities, and scripts that will be curated and managed by a committee of SMA employees starting on February 17th.
In fact, we’ve already open-sourced some of our own application source code there. If you are looking at creative ways of running OpCon on Docker, there is a repo for that. We are also giving access to OpCon’s REST API Java Client library. This will make it easier for your Java applications to interact with OpCon. A variety of integration scripts are already available to drive automation on Docusign, Expensify, Pardot, WinSCP, Backup-Exec, AWS EC2, and more.
Our principal core value is "Do the right thing," and that's why we want people to have the opportunity to share their experiences using OpCon to tackle business challenges. Github has a long history of enabling innovation and sharing by connecting people with shared interests. OpCon clients come from many industries, but they share the common goal of achieving more with the tools they have.
Every business has opportunities to improve efficiency and get better results by automating more business processes. IT team members are often faced with the dilemma of wanting to automate more, but have limited time and have to pick their targets carefully. With the Innovation Lab, OpCon users can benefit from what will be a growing library of ready to implement tools and scripts.
The end result for users is that they'll be able to accomplish their automation goals faster. If a problem has already been solved by another OpCon user, then there is no need to reinvent the wheel. Implement the solution and move on to the next item in your automation roadmap.
