'Workflows are used to determine the process for execution. The main purpose of workflow is to prepare for executing the data flows and to set the state of system, once the data flow execution is completed.'

'Data flow is used to extract, transform and load data from the source to the target system. All the transformations, loading and formatting occurs in data flow.

If you like a switch like function, you may like to use the conditional work flow.

Hi Kolo Toure,

Below listed are the usages of workflow -

1) The primary purpose of a work flow is to prepare for executing data flows and to set the state of the system after the data flows are complete.

2) You can set parameters in a workflow for execution.

3) Workflows along with dataflow also can include elements like other work flows, Scripts, Conditionals, While loops and Try/catch blocks.

4) Work flows can call other work flows, and you can nest calls to any depth. A work flow can also call itself.

Thanks
