BI & Analytics
Drive successful analytics and business intelligence with valuable data, thanks to reliable and automated pipelines. Discover the value of Apache Airflow in your business!
Success with Analytics depends on freshness of data
Data is only as valuable as it is fresh, accurate, and actionable. In an ideal world, business insights should be limited only by the ability to frame the right questions. When delivered into the right hands in a timely and usable manner, analytics and business intelligence can completely transform how organizations make decisions. On the flip side, a lack of data or incomplete or inaccurate data can have negative consequences, from misleading reports to incorrect conclusions to slower decision-making.
The data ingestion pipeline is the keystone to successful big data analytics and delivering business insights. It's impossible to get reliable, fresh data with traditional serial processing of data pipelines and one-and-done data analysis efforts. Pipelines need to be running reliably and in parallel any time fresh data can make a difference to business decisions.
Apache Airflow—run your data pipelines and tasks automatically
Apache Airflow is a way to programmatically author, schedule, and monitor workflows. With its proven core functionality, extensible and scalable framework, and support from a large community, Airflow is considered an industry standard for data pipelines automation. Now you can deliver fresh analytics more frequently, with less work.
Express all your pipelines using the flexibility of Python and SQL. Data engineers can quickly assemble pipelines using the library of providers, sample modules and template pipelines in the Astronomer Registry.
Advanced pipeline management features
Apache Airflow includes real-world pipeline capabilities such as XCom for inter-task communication, backfilling to reprocess historical data, and concurrency, improving performance while reducing execution time.
Combine multiple existing pipelines to solve new business problems and provide new analytical insights.
