Warewolf is based on Windows Workflow Foundation (WF).
We re-host their designer, hence why it may appear similar.

Here is a quick summary of key differences : 

  • Provides wizard driven integration with Web services, Stored Procedures, and DLLs.
  • A custom language to move data around a workflow instead of the standard In/Out arguments.
  • Improve the way a user interacts with workflow tooling by providing adorers to expand a tool in-line to access enhanced functionality. This results in less clicking around.
  • Greatly expanded toolbox functionality. A lot of what you see we have custom built.
  • Simplified re-use. Via our explorer you can drag one workflow into another instantly accessing its functionality.
  • An easy to use visual debugging output, greatly enhancing the usability and maintainability of the workflows you create.
  • All workflows are exposed as web services for system integration purposes.
  • Integrates with Active Directory for security at a server or resource level.
