Use cases for workflow engines
When talking about workflow automation, companies and business people usually think about human task management and task lists. And that makes sense since workflow engines are a great tool for that. However, workflow automation is actually much more. Modern workflow engines are lightweight and can operate high volumes at low latency which makes them applicable for every problem that requires a state machine, whether the main driver of the requirement at hand is business or IT. Other motivating factors for using workflow engines also include graphical visibility which is important in case of long-running workflows and them being persistent state machines that help with tasks of versioning process models, scheduling or operation control.
