Does Nintex have any comment on the announcement of Microsoft Flow and how it impacts or integrates with Nintex Workflow & Nintex Forms?
Microsoft Flow in Office 365 will enable a number of basic scenarios for end users; specifically around notifications when something's been created or very simple approvals. Fore more powerful workflows, customers and partners will need products like ours. Flow doesn't replace Nintex for Office 365, it's more complementary. Scenarios built with Flow will provide a sort of "feeder" system from which customers can connect and/or upgrade to more sophisticated automation capabilities of Nintex Workflow.
Hope that helps!
Thanks for the clarification Frank.
The guys over at Summit 7 Systems posted a great post that puts MS Flow and Sharepoint workflow side by side

I am interested in using flow to call on premise Nintex Workflows. Are you aware of any posts\documentation on integrating Flow with Nintex?
Hi Frank. What about Azure Logic Apps which is touted as the Pro version of Flow?Azure Logic Apps will be the Pro Version of Microsoft Flow - Microsoft Trends
Hi, eric halsey!
Sorry for the delay. I just heard from Josh Waldo, our VP of Channels and Product Marketing. He says.
"Thanks for the question. We are very close to the Microsoft Flow/Logic Apps and Power Apps teams, we have been in their inner circle of partner advisors from the beginning, and have a close working relationship with them. As you can probably see, Flow is aimed at the basic IFTTT-like scenarios around personal productivity scenarios and Logic Apps is focused on pro dev. The basic scenarios of Flow can translate into more “grown up” organizational workflows powered by Nintex as users end up with requirements beyond what those basic scenarios account for. Also, attention on the concept of workflow automation rises the tide on our mutual market opportunity as more customers will be looking for more workflow automation based on all the awareness and demand that the Microsoft marketing machine generates in this space. So, good news for all of us. In terms of a harder connection point between these technologies and Nintex, we are in discussions with the Flow/Logic Apps and Power Apps engineering teams around this and will share more after we assess further with them. Thanks again!"
Thanks Frank - to 'reframe' the question:
"Does Nintex have any comment on the announcement of Microsoft Flow and how it impacts or integrates with Nintex Cloud Workflow & Nintex Forms?
Given the separation of NC and SharePoint (I get what you are trying to do), Flow does allow you to e.g. mail enable a SharePoint list and connect to other SaaS providers - and MS OneDrive for Business is not the same as a Document Library (maybe one day MS?), I could see no connectors for SharePoint (only a personal OneDrive inside SharePoint).
Given the current players, IFTTT, Zapier , MS Flow, where is NC positioned (I've read Mike F's blog BTW)?
And I might have missed it, but is NC 'free' - guessing you pay for certain connectors like Salesforce,DocGen etc?
Don't get me wrong, I think this is a great achievement 'blowing the bolts' on SharePoint, but I'm struggling to see 'the problem to be solved' with NC, and the value proposition.
