Astro by Astronomer Delivered 438% ROI: Insights from a Forrester TEI Study

  • A

Imagine this scenario: Your core business applications frequently experience downtime, with Airflow instances crashing and lacking audit trails for debugging data pipelines. Key personnel are often tied up in manual Airflow management processes, diverting their focus from high-value work. This results in unstable services, lost revenue, and dissatisfied employees and customers.

What’s the root cause of these problems? It often boils down to the lack of effective data orchestration and data delivery.

Enter Astro by Astronomer—a solution designed to address these challenges by simplifying Apache Airflow management and streamlining your data operations.

Now, picture a world where these challenges become a thing of the past. Data pipelines flow seamlessly, downtime becomes rare, and your teams are free to innovate and build applications.

With technology options abound, relying solely on anecdotes isn’t enough to guide your organization toward the right technology investment. You need concrete data to ensure that your tech stack delivers a substantial ROI. That’s why we commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to provide a comprehensive analysis of Astro’s impact on enterprises. 

Spoiler alert: The impact is indeed significant.
