# App Engine


App Engine and its Task system are still in BETA. Therefore, all information presented in this documentation is subject to potentially breaking changes.

The App Engine is an execution system that allows developers to integrate their own algorithms or applications within the Cytomine platform. The goal for this system is to provide a flexible and scalable environment for running and orchestrating:

  • Tasks: time-limited non-interactive processes reading inputs and producing outputs.
  • Apps: multi-service applications allowing implementation of interactive workflows

Functionally, it acts as a new microservice within the Cytomine architecture, complete with detailed documentation on how developers can integrate their solutions using either the Task or App systems.
