We welcome everyone to contribute to our project in line with our code of conduct


You can use Cafienne when your organisation needs coordination of work between people, machines and processes.

Cafienne allows you to quickly build a visible model that is directly available as working software.

Building with Cafienne will speed up your development process and ease analysis of the way your company collaborates internally and externally.

Due to the nature of CMMN as the core of the system for coordination, connecting people to work together in teams is easy. The algorithms to coordinate work allow your organisation to stay in control of all work at hand.


The Cafienne engine keeps track of history in a way that all coordinated work is available for audit. The technique behind these mechanisms allows cafienne to be a highly scalable and performant system.

The Cafienne engine is based on the Lightbend akka actor framework doing the heavy lifting for a high performance clustered service.
