Time to move off of Microsoft Windows Workflow?

Posted by Dileepa WIjayanayake on Dec 6, 2019 8:45:00 AM

As you may already know, Microsoft no longer supports their Window workflow product - Windows Workflow Foundation.  Many organizations implemented this product from Microsoft for 2 main reasons: it is under the strong Microsoft brand and it was nominally free. 

After investing time and money in the Windows workflow platform, many organizations are now living with the product's serious limitations, and many companies have found implementing WWF to have been  a costly mistake.  Don't worry: FlowWright is here to help you!  WWF users can easily migrate from Windows Workflow to FlowWright with a few clicks and customization.

First, let's look at why Microsoft discontinued supporting Windows Workflow Foundation. Microsoft missed many key workflow features when launching this product that has proved hard to rebound from.  Here are some of those missing functions/features:

  • graphical web based designer
  • graphical rendering of the workflow design
  • graphical rendering of execution
  • runtime data collection
  • ability push design changes to running workflow instances
  • ability reset a workflow to a previous  point
  • versioning
  • synchronization
  • dynamic workflow
  • efficient use  of resources
  • performance/efficiency
  • upgradability
  • current support

FlowWright has come to the rescue of several Windows Workflow Foundation customers recently, those whom have gone down the path of implementing Windows workflow but then then ran into serious product limitations. 

FlowWright offers users the missing  flexibility and functionality needed.  Our team offers customized demos and we'd be happy to show your team first hand how workflow can work for you.  FlowWright is feature rich and you will learn what our embeddable .NET workflow  can do and what it can offer your organization.

FlowWright was built as an embeddable workflow product, meaning it is plug-and-play.  Users can take our .NET-based software, make couple of API calls or REST calls and readily integrate and automate!  FlowWright powers your appliction's workflow processes: easily design a workflow to execute any process, and if we don't provide an out of the box step/action (we have over 170 of them currently), simply write your own and extend the product as needed. 

It's time to transition off Microsoft Windows Workflow and implement a powerful workflow tool like FlowWright.
