Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"This is a simple tool to automate using Python.""The reason we went with Airflow is its DAG presentation, that shows the relationships among everything. It's more of a configuration-driven workflow."

"This solution has improved the way our organization does training.""In terms of using the cloud version, if you're somebody who, like myself, has got a lot of experience and understands measures and notations and things, basically it's unrestricted. You can do so many things. You can do your Archimaze, you can do BPMN. There's lots of stuff you can do in there and if you're a good field person and you cause yourself re-using things or whatever, then it's very nice, it's very easy to use.""Aris Connect opens collaboration opportunities between team members within the organization where they can actually submit change requests, navigate processes, and offer comments. It opens up the potential for BPM within the organization. I didn't see such an angle of a BPM portal with any other products. So I would say that's the best selling feature.""The cloud version has the advantage that you can work on it from anywhere.""In terms of UX design, somebody who has not had experience with ARIS will be able to use it very easily.""It has proved that it also works in complex circumstances.""It's very easy to collaborate with. It's very user-friendly"

Cons
"We need to develop our workflow description and notations because out of the box, Apache Airflow does not provide some features that are needed.""One specific feature that is missing from Airflow is that the steps of your workflow are not pipelined, meaning the stageless steps of any workflow. Not every workflow can be implemented within Airflow."

"I would like to see more support for architectural diagrams.""On an enterprise level, the ability to onboard somebody quickly is cumbersome because it just has too many things in it. It's got something like a hundred or more techniques and things in it.""If you have multiple tiers of approvals into that update of the policy, or the process design itself, it takes ages to prepare those internal flows within the system.""The trial version of this solution does not give you enough time to learn how to use it, so it should be extended to one year.""It would be very helpful if this solution were more open and could integrate with other solutions like ServiceNow.""Initial setup is rather complex. You have to find a way to isolate the complexity, and find common ground.""The price is quite high. This is one weak point of the solution."

Overview

Airflow is a platform to programmatically author, schedule and monitor workflows.

Use airflow to author workflows as directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) of tasks. The airflow scheduler executes your tasks on an array of workers while following the specified dependencies. Rich command line utilities make performing complex surgeries on DAGs a snap. The rich user interface makes it easy to visualize pipelines running in production, monitor progress, and troubleshoot issues when needed.

When workflows are defined as code, they become more maintainable, versionable, testable, and collaborative.

ARIS Cloud is a full-scale Business-Process-as-a-Service product. It powers collaborative process improvement projects around the globe.
