Use Cases and Deployment Scope
Workato is being used by the central IT/development department of the company and is an invaluable tool to bridge the gap between many pieces of software that Jumia uses for various purposes. We use Workato for a variety of situations, like listening to specific data events in some applications and triggering the appropriate actions, either in the same application or others or even in several applications at the same time (for instance, some JIRA changes trigger Zendesk updates and Slack notifications). We also use Workato to perform regular automated tasks to detect information patterns that are meaningful to the company for various reasons (for instance, some JIRA tickets are checked regularly to calculate performance KPIs, used in dev team's appraisals). Another use is to uphold the proper workflow and promote communication between teams (when certain things happen in Zendesk tickets, other teams are involved in the ticket automatically and Slack notifications are triggered). We have many many of these situations being covered by Workato recipes and using it doesn't occupy our dev teams, someone with only a fair knowledge of programming logic can use Workato's powerful yet simple interface and features.
