Kofax TotalAgility 7.4 Integration with Kapow

Kofax Total Agility 7 and Kapow Integration

 

Course Overview

The focus of this short course is to provide an understanding of the integration between Kofax TotalAgility 7 and Kapow.  The result will provide technical skills necessary to become certified in integrating Kofax TotalAgility 7 and Kapow. Attendees will be able to build processes that can integrate with Kapow and build Kapow projects/robots that can be used by TotalAgility.

 

This short course is intended for technical professionals who need to understand how to design, implement, and support the operation of Kapow enabled business process management solutions using Kofax TotalAgility.  Learning is accomplished through presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs.

 

This short course is designed to provide a comprehensive coverage of the integration features of Kapow with Kofax TotalAgility, its functionality, configuration, and integration.  During this course, the attendee will become familiar with how to run Robots within a TotalAgility process, passing data to and from both systems.
