With the rise of the Modern Data Stack, many tools in the industry started positioning themselves as “data orchestrators” rather than “workflow orchestrators.” This article attempts to disambiguate the terms. I’d argue that the data orchestration moniker is a confusing shorthand term and that workflow orchestration and data flow automation better represent what orchestration for the Modern Data Stack is about.
