Case Study: Recover quickly

Washington Nationals

We have been able stay on top of the data flows we've moved to Prefect easily. Seeing failures, successes, and outages in a timely and clear fashion has let us inform stakeholders what's up with the data flows. - Chris Jordan

Case Study: Events


Our event-driven cloud build pipeline leverages the strengths of GitHub, AWS, and Prefect to automate much of the workload. Prefect adds observability and reliability to the pipeline by ensuring that all builds launch, run, and report their results. - Daniel Bast & Daniel Komisar

Case Study: Security


So we asked ourselves, ‘How do we make our data pipelines clean, maintainable, accessible for analysts, and most of all, secure?’ This is where Prefect excels—in being able to monitor a plethora of custom ETL pipelines to see where things fail and where things break, all while knowing that the sensitive data stays secure.” - Chandler Soto
