Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.""The interface and the number of connectors that they provide are the most valuable features. The support here, it's kind of okay. But the main thing is with the number of connectors and the UI, the user interface.""I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine.""It is open-source. It supports microservice orchestration. This is what we are really interested in. We can customize our products depending on the use cases.""We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation.""There's this graphic that tells you how many lines or how many tickets are in each step. In that way, you know where you stand. I find this feature very valuable.""The modeler is useful for creating the flow. The way to access the data through their REST API is also valuable. This is what we're using right now.""The best feature is the automation."

"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 initial setup was straightforward and it does not take long to complete.""The product integrates well with other pipelines and solutions.""I found the following features very useful: DAG - Workload management and orchestration of tasks using.""We have been quite satisfied with the stability of the solution.""I like the UI rework, it's much easier.""The best part of Airflow is its direct support for Python, especially because Python is so important for data science, engineering, and design. This makes the programmatic aspect of our work easy for us, and it means we can automate a lot."

"It's very simple to use and the integration features between Java and other services within the workflow are very easy."

Cons
"The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex.""Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities.""I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java.""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 support definitely can be improved. Apart from that, the language should be extendable to other platforms. If I want to write, I'll run a different platform, like Python code on top of it, or COBOL code on top of it, and it should support those languages.""If there were some industry templates it would have helped significantly, because it is similar to a process map for a domain. That is what we are currently creating, a domain-relevant process map.""The migration strategy needs to be improved."

"UI can be improved with additional user-friendly features for non-programmers and for fewer coding practitioner requirements.""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.""Technical support is an area that needs improvement.""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 dashboard is connected into the BPM flow that could be improved.""I would like to see it more friendly for other use cases."

More Apache Airflow Cons »

"Our customers and developers have complained that the UI is a little bit confusing."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The open-source version of the product is free to use.""I use the open-source free version.""There is an open-source version available, that in its core features (workflow and decision engine, modeler) is exactly the same as in the enterprise version.""When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition.""We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""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."

"We are using the open-source version of Apache Airflow.""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."

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.
