Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "NiFiProposal" page has been changed by JosephWitt:
https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/NiFiProposal?action=diff&rev1=18&rev2=19

    * Component-based extension model along well defined interfaces enabling rapid development
and effective testing
  
  == Background ==
- Reliable and effective dataflow between systems can be difficult whether you're running
scripts on a laptop or have a massive distributed computing system operated by numerous teams
and organizations.  As the volume and rate of data grows and as the number of systems, protocols,
and formats increase and evolve so too does the complexity and need for greater insight and
agility.  These are the dataflow challenges that NiFi was built to tackle.

agility.  These are the dataflow challenges that Ni``Fi was built to tackle.
  
  Ni``Fi is designed in a manner consistent with the core concepts described in flow-based
programming as originally documented by J. Paul Morrison in the 1970s.  http://www.jpaulmorrison.com/fbp/
 This model lends itself well to visual diagramming, concurrency, componentization, testing,
and reuse.  In addition to staying close to the fundamentals of flow-based programming, Ni``Fi
provides integration system specific features such as: guaranteed delivery; back pressure;
ability to gracefully handle backlogs and data surges; and an operator interface that enables
on-the-fly data flow generation, modification, and observation.
