Nearly all ECL queries pass through the workflow engine. The workflow engine executes items (sections of the query) sequentially, but there are many situations where it could be beneficial to process items in parallel. This presentation explores the changes that need to be made to the workflow engine, to give an improvement in the running time of each workunit.
