What is most valuable?

The best feature is the automation. Camunda supports microservices and you can do multiple things. The most important thing is that you can reuse components that you have within the product. For example, let's say that I developed a… more »

What needs improvement?

The only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform. This is from drawing the modeling and the workflow up to the production release. The support definitely has to be improved… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have limited experience with Appian and Pega BPM, but my most in-depth experience is with Camunda BPM. We did a pilot project with Appian for one or two months and we did one with Pega for about one month. During our evaluation, we have… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering Camunda BPM is that they implementing a PoC first. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The solution's case management is its most valuable aspect. It's basically an open architecture based software, which means the main aim of the software is to provide a low-code application development environment. It has several authoring… more »

What needs improvement?

They use something called a unique model-based architecture. During development, where the database and the UI, everything comes from one single piece of architecture. Due to that sometimes the enterprise architecture teams do not like it… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are multiple models. They have enterprise licenses for each server, for the product version. If you're doing it on-premise they also have per user basis on their cloud. It depends on what your specific need is. Those vary from… more »

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with Pega. Pega BPM is definitely one of the topmost BPM packages out there. It hits all the right notes for a containerized implementation. The only thing you need to be careful… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I joined the company when those decisions were already made. I wasn't part of that decision. However, in a lot of places where I've consulted as a digital transformation consultant, we did definitely compare Pega with competition such as… more »

What is most valuable?

They also have features they are integrating to the other services or managing the technical management or you can go with the integration point of view and you can able to, in the build tool, do the configuring of those things in terms of other approvals or like customization. And you can include the time bond overflows for the emails. So all these parts come from the Salesforce only. So Appian… more »

What needs improvement?

If you compare it with Appian, there are business rules that you are dealing with. With less code, we are making a higher standard. So maybe, in the future, Salesforce can make it a more integral part of the application. And they are also strategic partners with multiple companies, so maybe that is the reason they are sustainable and they the four versions every year. These things likely depend… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would rate the Salesforce Cloud App at an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most useful feature for me is using Bonita as part of my modeling process. I use Bizagi and Bonita together to create the process, pages, and forms.

What needs improvement?

In my experience, the response with the desktop application and the mobile application lag a bit and the product needs to improve in that way. I should be able to type the text — for example, type the CSS — and the code should generate… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Really I use two products at the same time for business process management. I think Bizagi is a powerful software or tool for organization, but Bonita is user-friendly and easy-to-use — easier to use for development. Bizagi has a lot of… more »

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten where ten is the best, based on my experience, I would give it an eight. It is not a ten because it needs to improve in feature availability.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

For my R&D, I used trial versions to compare Bonita with the other BPMs like Bigazi, Appian, BPM Anywhere and Oracle Suite. After comparisons, I chose Bonita for my application because it was easy-to-use.

What is most valuable?

There are a lot of features in BPM products. We have evaluated those features from OmniFlow iBPS and appreciate their intelligent business process management where we can design the forms as complex forms or make our own versions to fix what's wrong. We have incorporated the bootstrap technologies… more »

What needs improvement?

OmniFlow used to design the same old forms. Now, we design intelligent forms so we can drag and drop the forms and control its form responsiveness. Previously, we didn't have any responsible kind of form design and now it has responsive forms. It will be supported to mobile for all the devices if it… more »

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of 1 - 10, I give Newgen OmniFlow an eight. I have six years experience in Newgen and we have implemented our own Newgen now with 2,000 to 3,000 implementations since then. We have a huge customer satisfaction rate because we try to accommodate all the requirements of their business. We… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated OpenText and Appian.
