Java integration is powerful enough to solve any complex problems
Pros and Cons
- "Process automation with Bonita BPM is really easy."
- "Automation in vacation of a human resources replacement would be a good improvement in the product."
What other advice do I have?If you are trying to use a BPM solution for a core business implementation, I would strongly consider to use a subscription version (a licensed one). Do not use a community edition for business core implementations: Just because of the support service. In the community edition, you will be quite alone because Bonita BPM community is not as active, like others.

In my MBA class, I use this tool to teach BPMN design and execution. Documentation is weak.
Pros and Cons
- "Development of forms and flows."
What other advice do I have?You should check also Oracle and IBM BPM on cloud. However, if your company doesn't have a big budget, then Bonita BPM could be a good option.

It doesn't use any type of proprietary scripting language, like in some other BPMs. Documentation and examples could be enhanced.
What other advice do I have?Before choosing any BPM product, definitely do a real world POC with and test ease of connectivity to external systems via REST or SOAP, evaluate ease of form development, and ease of custimization.

Would love for some of the documentation to be better, since there are many great functionalities built into the product
Valuable FeaturesReal java-like hooks into development of the business process model. The Connector implementation is a great addition to an out-of-box solution providing robust features for the developer to build hassle-free integrations. I also really liked the way Bonitasoft lets you define and configure how your connector interface is exposed to others leveraging your custom connector.
Room for ImprovementWould love for some of the documentation to be better, since there are many great functionalities built into the product!
Stability IssuesAt times Bonita BPM Studio crashes, intermittently.
Customer Service and Technical SupportCustomer Service: 9 Technical Support: 9
Initial SetupNo, very straight forward.

Historically, there was a 'no man's land' between the business analyst and the developer.
What other advice do I have?I hope to use this product for many years to come. It is more than helpful, it is worth the effort of learning to better our company.
