IBM has just published the latest article on the
Puffin Automation Framework.

This article introduces the new architecture and the future of
What is the Puffin Automation Framework?
As it's name implies, Puffin allows you to automate "actions."
An action, in terms of Puffin, is any "high level" execution item
that may require inputs, may produce outputs, and whose results may
be validated for success or failure. For example, an action may
involve making an HTTP request to a dynamic web page. It may
involve grabbing a file's contents or even retrieving a specific
email based on a keyword in the subject line. All of these are
actions in the sense that they can be automated by Puffin. Puffin
will manage all inputs, outputs, and validation for these actions.
