OpenFn is a suite of data integration, interoperability, and business process automation (i.e., workflow) tools that's used by governments, NGOs, and social enterprises, primarily in the health and humanitarian sectors. It includes both
- the OpenFn platform (an integration-platform-as-a-service or "iPaaS") and
- the free and open-source OpenFn Integration Toolkit,
with the latter being a digital public good (a "DPG") recognized in Digital Square's Global Goods Guidebook.
In essence, OpenFn is software that makes it easier for governments and NGOs to connect the different technologies they use, share data securely, drive critical business processes, and scale their interventions via automated interoperability.
We ❤️ documentation.
This site is the one-stop-shop documentation site for the whole suite of OpenFn data integration, interoperability, and automation tools. Here you will learn how to use OpenFn to build automation workflows that can be as short and simple or as long and complex as you like. You also will learn about all of the ways you can choose to deploy the automation flows you create.
Check out the sections on the left. They'll show you how to get up and running, as well as how to design, build, deploy, and manage data integration and interoperability projects using OpenFn technologies and beyond.
Please feel free to point out issues with this documentation or, if you can't find the right repo, issues with the tools themselves. (The more feedback the better!). If you want to propose some new language for the documentation, you can make those changes by clicking the "Edit this page" link at the bottom of any page and submit a pull request!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email email@example.com.
