Helps us to create the process, pages, and forms and is easy to use

What is our primary use case?

I use this as part of my solution for BPM (Business Process Management) development.

Pros and Cons

  • "This product is very easy-to-use and user-friendly."
  • "It is missing some important features that other products have."

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.

Good integrations, helpful for quickly building workflows, and has a Community edition

What is our primary use case?

We are an implementation partner, and we implement Bonita. Most of our implementations are on-premises. It is used for process and workflow automation. When there is heavy customization in the process Bonita is the best compare to other products in the market. We have implemented 30+ processes for various customers (Pharma, Manufacturing, Financial). The tool is very easy to use and built on open-source technology. Easy to integrate with external systems.

Pros and Cons

  • "Flexible and drag-and-drop type of UI is very valuable. The integrations are also very good. You can build workflows very quickly, which is my favorite activity. By using the GUI, you can build the entire mechanism, notifications, and all this kind of stuff."
  • "I should be able to park the tasks that are within a process in a kind of container, and dynamically, a super admin should be able to connect these processes. This kind of feature might be helpful."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. Small and medium businesses can use this product. I would rate Bonita a seven out of ten.

An easy setup and good user interface but modules are limited in the community edition

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is stable. Even the older versions are stable."
  • "The community edition has limited module functionality. If they could release some of the functionality that's available in the enterprise edition that would be helpful to those learning to use the solution."

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model and the Bonita Community Edition of the solution. I can recommend the solution. It's very robust. I'd rate it seven out of ten; I'd rate it higher if the community edition was able to offer more collaboration capabilities.

Good user interface and the community support is helpful, but better documentation is needed

What is our primary use case?

I have been using Bonita to develop processes using the Bonita Studio. We have only been using it for simple, object console processes.

Pros and Cons

  • "The user interface is better than all of the open-source BPMs that I have tried."
  • "I have run into a lot of problems because there is not enough documentation."

What other advice do I have?

In general, Bonita is a very good solution. It is open-source and has a good UI. I find that it is the best in terms of management for BPM features. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
