What is most valuable?

We like the BPMN notation because it's BPMN 2.0 compliant. We like the out-of-the-box REST API features so we can build a service with Camunda, and instantly it's accessible using a REST interface… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The open source factor is a big one because we don't worry about feature customization issues. The problem with proprietary products is, if they're not giving you the features you want there's nothing… more»

What needs improvement?

Like all BPM tools, they're very bad with proprietary UIs. In general, anyone who uses BPM tools should not expect to use their proprietary UI. It just works awfully. It's very difficult to customize… more»

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

ActiveVOS, but it is not open source. That's one of the reasons we switched.

What other advice do I have?

In terms of advice, if you're considering Camunda, you must know how to code Java. If you go on YouTube and type "Camunda", or "intro video for Camunda", the Camunda people will tell you, "You need… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated ActiveVOS and, in the past, we've looked at IBM BPM.

It is quite easy to build a simple process without any knowledge of programming. On the other hand, if you want to customize the platform and processes to your specific use case, you also have the possibility to do that.

It gave us an opportunity to optimize our current flows by migrating them to the Camunda platform.

Customization and tech stack could be up-to-date.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution for approximately three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is possible to adjust all the aspects of this platform, if you know what you are doing.

What is most valuable?

The flexibility characteristic in a BPMS, through BPMN and DMN, is undoubtedly the most interesting feature for our business.

How has it helped my organization?

Together with a Java component we develop, where we register municipal, state, and federal holidays, we then do all SLA control during the execution of a process, avoiding countermeasures and improving the relationship with the client.

What needs improvement?

I think it would be important to internationalize the Cockpit and the Admin as well as with the Tasklist. Another important improvement would be to invest in the creation of more types of fields in the Camunda Modeler so that you could dynamically build more complex forms, such as native type arrays, and customized arrays of objects.
