API services have become critical over the last few years, with many cloud providers providing APIs for many different services. Even non-UI based applications provide APIs for a variety of services. For example, Microsoft Azure provides APIs to make use of Azure features like storage, key vaults and much more.
One of our customers is a large European natural gas distributor. Providing natural gas to millions of customers requires efficient systems to manage distribution, maintenance, and customer relations. Our customer determined that the best path forward to achieve efficiency is to build systems based on a business process management system that includes processes automated with integrated workflow software.
API's are the primary way to access most applications. And as applications become increasingly feature-and-function-rich, their API can become more complex and impact performance. Workflow applications evolved in this exact way: when they were rudimentary then their APIs were small and there were few issues - but as features and functionality were added, API performance degraded noticeably.
By now you understand that you can pass initial variable/global values to any workflow instance at the start of its execution. These passed in values will be used to initialize the values of the variables and globals defined in your workflow design.
FlowWright supports the standard data types for variables and globals, which are:
Workflow users whose applications make use principally of the Microsoft technology stack often consider open source Java workflow products at the same time they consider .NET-based FlowWright. There are 2 main reasons that most Microsoft users end up choosing FlowWright over free open source Java products.

There are many open source workflow products available. However, for most companies, security is a serious concern. Open source solution code is available to anyone to view, making it relatively easy to hack the software. While some organizations still build solutions using open source platforms, the risk is often deemed too high for most organizations that prioritize security.
Sports are often touted as building character and developing the ability for individuals to work more effectively in teams. Intuitively, this makes sense, but beyond competitiveness and socialization, it can be hard to identify precise parallels between sports and business. But, after 30 years of coaching while working through FIFA national level classes, I think there are some important parallels between effective game tactics and strategy, and effective project management using FlowWright PM software.
