What is a workflow engine?

A workflow engine takes business logic and processes and simplifies them into individual blocks or “tasks.” From there each of these tasks can become autonomous microservices/ serverless/ APIs and can be individually scaled without affecting the entire application.
By utilizing a workflow engine, developers can focus on building mission critical applications rather than the mechanics of service communication, flow durability, and failure handling.

How Orkes Conductor Works

Orkes Conductor can be categorized into four distinct capabilities that make it the ultimate workflow engine for all your distributed business processes.

Visually define workflows, write code in any language with supported SDKs, plug into existing APIs and easily expose business functions as a worker process.

Visual workflow editor icon

Visual Workflow Creation UI

Increase idea to production velocity by creating and editing workflows visually in the Conductor UI. Leverage the built-in code editor for fine turning your definitions and integrating with source code repositories.
Scheduler icon


Execute workflows at a prescribed cadence (e.g. once every 10 seconds, once a month, at 4pm every day) without the need for an external cron job.
Human Task icon

Human Tasks

Add human interactions to your workflows with built-in system task for assigning users or groups for specific actions inside an execution flow.
Event Task icon

Event Tasks

Trigger events from your workflows to interface and share data from your execution with external systems like Kafka Topics.
Wait Task icon

Wait Tasks

Bring durability to your workflows with the ability to wait at any point within the execution. Wait tasks can wait for seconds, days, years, and more.
AI/LLM Task icon

AI and LLM Tasks

Seamlessly weave in Large Language Models, Prompt Templates and Vector Database Integrations into your business workflows.
Webhooks icon


Asynchronously signal waiting workflows or start new workflow executions using built-in webhooks for incoming calls.

Run workflows in parallel, optimize for debugging with a visual runtime dashboard, and quickly identify and fine tune inefficiencies within your flow.

One-step invoke icon

One-Step Invoke

Simplify the execution process, reduce complexity, and enhance user efficiency by eliminating the need for multiple steps or commands.
Workflow Timeline icon

Workflow Timeline View

View a chronological representation of workflow events, enabling better understanding, monitoring, and analysis of workflow processes from start to finish.
Task Retry icon

Task Retry

Handle task failures by automatically retrying tasks based on configurable parameters. This feature enhances workflow reliability and ensures that transient errors or temporary issues do not lead to complete workflow failures.
Versioning icon


Safely test changes by doing canary testing in production or A/B testing across multiple versions before rolling out. A version can also be deleted, effectively allowing for "rollback" if required.

Monitor workflow and application performance while scaling without additional infrastructure configuration or setup.

Tags icon


Assign Tags to workflows, tasks, and other entities to efficiently organize workflows, enhance searchability, and implement more granular control over workflow execution and monitoring.
Advanced Dashboard Metrics icon

Advanced Metrics Dashboard

Gain insights into workflows that drive your business. Identify workflow patterns across your distributed landscape and quickly resolve bottlenecks. Built-in alerting over hundreds of granular metrics.
Infinite Scalability icon

Infinitely Scaleable

Build or scale with a limitless number of application workflows and executions.
High Performance Queing icon

High Performance Queuing

Increased throughput for handling large volumes of simultaneous task executions.

Share or reuse integral pieces of a workflow across applications, view audit change logs, and assign access to unique users and groups.

Role Based Access Control icon

Role Based Access Control

Securely share workflows, tasks, secrets, AI prompts and more with other teams with granular access controls.
Secrets Storage icon

Secrets Storage

Securely store API keys and tokens with custom access requirements to be used within workflows.
User groups icon

User Groups

Create custom user groups to give access and permissions to various team members across your organization.
Audit logs icon

Audit Logs

Audit changes to workflows as users make changes to the metadata.
Change Data Capture icon

Change Data Capture

Capture all state changes for your applications out of the box.

Orkes has integrations with major applications and SDKs for popular languages languages to make workflow and application development a seamless experience
All integrations available on Orkes Conductor for AI/LLM, Vector Databases, Message Brokers, SDKs, and RDBMS
"I can't stress enough how much Orkes Cloud has helped us over the past year to get our microservices efforts off the ground and accelerate this process. And our development teams love Orkes because they can quickly make the microservices they need. Our development teams can automate anything they want. It's very empowering,"
– Andy French, AVP of Platform Automation, United Wholesale Mortgage
“Orkes has been instrumental in increasing developer agility, creating cost efficiencies, and building highly reliable and secure applications. We’re so impressed with the results that we are migrating more workflows from other platforms to Orkes and initiating all flows on Orkes.”
– Thisara Alawala, Lead Architect, Foxtel
“Thanks to Orkes Conductor, we can continue to focus on building our workflows. And because it’s all hosted in Orkes Cloud, we don’t have to think about building and maintaining the orchestration engine ourselves. We can focus on creating an exceptional customer experience and optimizing our margins,”
– Chintan Shah, VP of engineering at Collective
“We didn't want data management; we wanted a powerful microservice orchestration engine. After a careful analysis, Normalyze chose Conductor delivered by Orkes Cloud.”
– Ravi Ithal, Founder & CTO, Normalyze
