Apache Airflow is a cutting-edge platform that makes it easy to plan and orchestrate any data pipeline or workflow. These pipelines require complex sequencing, coordination, and planning of various data sources, resulting in datasets that can be leveraged in business intelligence applications, data science models, or big data applications.
Airflow represents workflows as directed acyclic graphs (DAGs). A DAG is a series of interconnected tasks, with each task representing a specific step in the workflow. These tasks can be scheduled and executed in a defined order to ensure smooth data flow.
The DAG concept enables parallelism in the execution of non-interdependent tasks, enabling efficient processing and improved performance. It allows users to retry failed tasks, monitor progress, and easily manage dependencies.
Apache Airflow has become an integral part of modern data engineering and data science workflows, enabling organizations to efficiently manage data and automate critical processes. A closer look into the world of Airflow reveals the intuitive features, flexibility, and extensibility that make Airflow a favorite among data professionals.
In today’s data-driven world, the seamless flow and processing of data have become essential for businesses and organizations. To accomplish this, Apache Airflow has evolved into a powerful and versatile tool that revolutionizes how data workflows are orchestrated. If you’re new to Airflow and curious about its capabilities, this short blog will introduce you to this open source platform.
