Not every workflow can be implemented within Airflow."

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.

BIC Platform delivers all-encompassing business process management. The software covers the complete lifecycle of BPM and supports strategy, design, implementation, execution and controlling of business processes.

BIC Platform has a modular setup which allows individual adjustments. Typical deployment scenarios of BIC Platform are SAP introduction, governance, risk or compliance management, quality management or the structure of process management systems. 

Thanks to its intuitive design, users quickly start with process modeling and manage the full process cycle up to the optimization. Comprehensive features of the software are document management, governance, review and release workflows.

Available BIC Platform modules are Design, Governance, Portal, Monitor, Workflow and GRC. The software can be operated either as a Public Cloud, Private Cloud or On Premises. Offline modelling is possible with the web-based option.
