Thank you!
I asked this question in the prefect-community channel. But I guess I could ask the question here. Perhaps you can point me to a resource or a direct answer. Is Prefect a good choice for non-Python based workloads? Examples: generic workload management with classic SQL Server, Oracle, Kafka and Informatica based batch and streaming data processing jobs. Can Prefect be used as a better scheduling and workload management platform, just as long as we can invoke the jobs from within a Python wrapper?

Hi @Joseph Vedam! Welcome to Prefect! Surely Prefect can be used for the batch jobs. The streaming is a maybe. It depends on your use case and the latency needed. For 2.0, it would be a long run flow that continues to submit tasks. If you really need streaming, try starting with Prefect 2.0
