It's more of a configuration-driven workflow.""We have been quite satisfied with the stability of the solution.""I found the following features very useful: DAG - Workload management and orchestration of tasks using.""The best part of Airflow is its direct support for Python, especially because Python is so important for data science, engineering, and design.

Cons
"Documentation can be improved.""In the future, I would definitely like to see the process administration (migration, audit, tracking) and process evaluation (optimize) features added to the community edition.""They have a migration plugin that can be used to migrate from one BPM to another BPM. It is in the beta stage since last year. If they can make it available in the market, it would be great. We are going to have a couple of migration projects for migrating from IBM BPM to Camunda, and this plugin would be useful. I have already discussed this with them two weeks ago and asked them to look into this and add it as a feature. We are expecting this plugin to be available in the next version. This is the only requirement we have at present. They keep on coming up with different features, which is helping us a lot. Its latest release that came out last month was awesome.""Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved.""The user interface needs some polishing because it is too technical for end-users to use it.""When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly.""The initial setup can be complex for business users.""The migration strategy needs to be improved."

"I would like to see it more friendly for other use cases.""The scalability of the solution itself is not as we expected. Being on the cloud, it should be easy to scale, however, it's not.""We're currently using version 1.10, but I understand that there's a lot of improvements in version 2. In the earlier version that we're using, we sometimes have problems with maintenance complexity. Actually using Airflow is okay, but maintaining it has been difficult.""The dashboard is connected into the BPM flow that could be improved.""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.""UI can be improved with additional user-friendly features for non-programmers and for fewer coding practitioner requirements.""Technical support is an area that needs improvement."

"The price could be more competitive.""It would be nice to have a Spanish user interface available to us."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The open-source version of the product is free to use.""We're using the open-source version for now.""I think Camunda BPM can improve their licensing costs. It isn't easy to find clients with Camunda BPM licenses mainly because it's quite expensive.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost.""I use the open-source free version.""Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year.""Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."

"The pricing for the product is reasonable.""Although Airflow is open source software, there's also commercial support for it by Astronomer. We personally don't use the commercial support, but it's always an option if you don't mind the extra cost.""We are using the open-source version of Apache Airflow."
