Liane Monaco-Christensen, MBAIf assuming the criteria relates to the actual process (BPM), the most import criteria would include ensuring the documented process supports the goals/objectives of the organization, successful pass compliance testing, and bring increased functionality to the organization. If assuming the criteria relates to applications/systems to automate BPM, the most important criteria would include ability to expand with the organization's growth, provides appropriate Dashboards/Reporting for multiple levels of administration within the organization, and shows a return on investment within a satisfactory time-frame.
John BeckerI agree, Rodrigo We chose iDatix for a lot of other reasons, but the clincher is that it uses Sequel as its back end which allows us to connect it to our ERP (Sage), our BI (IBI), and several other of our Sequel-focused business critical solutions.

One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is Bizagi vs Bonita. One user says about Bizagi, "It offers phenomenal ease of use - building working solutions and making continuous improvements is quick/agile and does not require a large technical team "behind the curtain" to assist with completing the application, resolving compilation and deployment issues, etc."Another user says about Bonita, "I have solved a lot of banking problems using Bonita BPM, from customer hiring to credit evaluation. We have developed more than 20 processes in banking industries using the Bonita BPM platform." In your experience, which is better and why?
Brad PridgeonI found BizAgi to have a superior modeling tool, but as stated it only runs on .NET platforms and deployment seemed to be a challenge. BonitaBPM was easier to customize a BPM application and easier to deploy. Its modeling tool is Eclipse based and seemed not as easy for a novice to use.
Art Hebbeler, PMPBizagi has an outstanding model as far as cost and licensing. Design, build, test for no cost. License when you are ready to deploy and only pay for what you actually use. This alone is saving my organization a ton of cash, and was a huge factor in making the decision to deploy Bizagi. From a technical standpoint, we haven't found anything we can't do in Bizagi. The ability to connect to disparate systems, and especially our legacy data, without having to convert everything up front is a huge time saver. We were, for example, able to take a process that took 2 years to develop and deploy and get it into production in less than 9 weeks, and that was with a team with only self-study and one classroom course. I started as a low-code/no-code skeptic. After exploring what is available today (warning: I've been around since the dark ages and remember the promises of "expert systems"), and especially looking at the cost-benefit and ROI side of things, Bizagi wins hand's down.
reviewer872304Bizagi is a competent, repository-based, modeling tool that integrates smoothly with their execution engine. I haven’t worked with Bonita; from their website, it also looks competent. Other issues to consider when adopting a BPMS tool is the installed base and financial strength of the vendor; I suspect Bizagi has the edge there.

One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is Bonita vs Camunda BPM. One user says about Bonita,"I have solved a lot of Banking problems using Bonita BPM, from customer hiring to credit evaluation" Another user says about Camunda BPM, " We have the ability to modify the product if we need to, and that comes in handy whenever we need to add new functionality and features" In your opinion, which is better and why? Thanks! --Rhea
reviewer842259With Bonita you can not only develop the process but you can also design better interfaces. In Camunda, the user interfaces are very basic and do not allow much customization.
William ValenciaWith Bonita you can design and deploy any business process, however for integration with specific providers you should buy a license for use connectors. With Camunda, you could customize the integration with some java development, deploy with Tomcat, and finally hold standard BPM design.
Juan Deloscobosi totally agree with reviewer842259, both are powerful to design processes, because both have similarities, but the interfaces designer of Bonita is higher of Camunda. But if you need some results about he processes performance, the dahsboards of Camunda, in my opinion are better than Bonita. And other feature to take in account is the tool to analyze the workflow instances, in my opinion Camunda has better information than Bonita

One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is Appian BPM vs IBM BPM People like you are trying to decide which one is best for their company. Can you help them out? Which of these two solutions would you recommend for Business Process Management? Why? Thanks for helping your peers make the best decision! --Rhea
Advie09892Both are good But Appian BPM may have an edge from an agile development perspective IBM BPM may have an edge from robust workflow perspective
