Apache NiFi
-Apache NiFi is a dataflow system based on the concepts of flow-based programming. It is currently
a part of the Apache Incubator.
+Apache NiFi is an easy to use, powerful, and reliable system to process and distribute data.
 ## Features
-Apache NiFi supports powerful and scalable directed graphs of data routing, transformation,
and system mediation logic. Some of the high-level capabilities and objectives of Apache NiFi
+Apache NiFi was born for dataflow.  It supports highly configurable directed graphs of data
routing, transformation, and system mediation logic.  Some of its key features include:
-- Web-based user interface for seamless experience between design, control, feedback, and
monitoring of data flows
-- Highly configurable along several dimensions of quality of service such as loss tolerant
versus guaranteed delivery, low latency versus high throughput, and priority based queuing
-- Fine-grained data provenance for all data received, forked, joined, cloned, modified, sent,
and ultimately dropped as data reaches its configured end-state
-- Component-based extension model along well defined interfaces enabling rapid development
and effective testing
-- Security: Supports various forms of SSL, SSH, HTTPS for system to system flows and content
encryption/decryption.  And SSL, PKI, pluggable authorization for users.
