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."

"The solution is scalable.""The client and the IBM content navigation are the solution's most valuable features.""Flexible and the ability to divide search screens, and to search for documents. The ECM feature inside the system is great.""The most valuable features are those involving decision making, analysis, and anything related to event documents because those processes are related to content as well.""It is easy to set up workflows that notify the user depending on certain events.""The most valuable feature is its stability, which is why we are using it.""The content management is great."

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."

"The service as it currently stands is out-of-date and lacks flexibility.""Comparing the solution with other interfaces, IBM BPM is much better than Case Foundation. They need to make this solution's interface more user-friendly.""There are some features that could be enhanced like the document viewer""The interface needs to be more user-friendly.""Once a workflow is launched then it stays static forever, which is a problem because if there is a change in the business then you cannot change the workflow.""We are now using microservices but there are some areas where the coordination with FileNet is problematic.""90% of the feedback we receive states that the UI is not very user-friendly."

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.

IBM Case Foundation is for organizations that need to harness unstructured information and integrate it with business processes to drive critical business decisions. It enables organizations to create, manage and optimize case-based processes and is designed to decrease development costs while significantly improving process performance. Case Foundation links specific pieces of content with a structured workflow. It's an on ramp for organizations that choose to move from document-centric workflow solutions to the advanced capabilities of IBM Case Manager.
