Cons
"Technical support is an area that needs improvement.""I would like to see it more friendly for other use cases.""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.""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."

    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.

    Informatica Cloud’s Application Integration solution creates business processes that accelerate business response times, dramatically increase business efficiency and improves user effectiveness - all without writing a single line of code.
