TaskFlows in Enterprise Performance Management Architect (EPMA) can be used to sequence any number of EPMA operations such as dimension updates, application deployments, and data synchronisations.  They are also able to execute batch jobs and send emails, all of which makes them potentially useful for automation and integration of EPMA applications.
