Migrate from Control-M to modernize your workflows

Airflow empowers your teams with application and data workflow orchestration built for cloud computing, distributed systems, and the rapidly evolving technology landscape.

Do these Control-M limitations sound familiar to you?

With roots in supporting mainframe environments, Control-M has limitations such as limited flexibility, high costs, and suboptimal performance which can impact teams moving to more modern application and data architectures.

Suboptimal scalability

With Control-M, heavy investment in capacity planning and infrastructure provisioning is required for large workloads.

High costs

Customers are feeling the impact of Control-M costs, which include not only licensing but also implementation and ongoing maintenance.

Limited extensibility

Teams struggle to support newer services, technologies, and architectures without extensive workarounds and custom scripting.

UI-based challenges

A primarily UI-based interface may not support the fidelity of increasingly sophisticated interactions, and doesn’t align to how developers and infrastructure engineers want to work.

Airflow is application and data workflow orchestration built for an increasingly dynamic technology landscape

Airflow pioneered task and data orchestration as code and was designed to support distributed systems running in the cloud. With Airflow, your teams never have to retrofit a legacy tool to support new business requirements.

Unlimited scalability

Airflow was built on a distributed architecture. Components can be scaled independently, enabling greater flexibility, scalability, and performance in managing and executing workflows.
