SharePoint Designer Workflows are not powerful enough, no more functionality without coding.
HarePoint Workflow Extensions for SharePoint
We use our workflows to publish documents, manage large contact lists where a lot of fields are "calculated" based on certain logic, we also parse XML documents to extract metadata to add to our documents. We manage a list of employee data with picture and update Active Directory and SharePoint profile picture with our workflow. It would not be possible without HarePoint Workflow Extensions.
We now have about 50 workflows running on thousands of instance of list items or documents. Without HarePoint, a lot of functionality would simply not be possible.
