We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable."
"Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible."
"We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."
"The interface and the number of connectors that they provide are the most valuable features. The support here, it's kind of okay. But the main thing is with the number of connectors and the UI, the user interface."
"It has an open BPM"
"I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine."
"It is open-source. It supports microservice orchestration. This is what we are really interested in. We can customize our products depending on the use cases."
"We are using the BPMN engine of Camunda; we are not using the user interface. We are using just the engine, the back end of this. For us, it is working quite well."
"We haven't ever needed to take service breaks and we can scale it throughout our company without any problem."
"Aris BPA has a lot of tools that are more professional than Bizagi."
"The solution's basic features are easy to use, overall designed well, and it has good process mining analysis."
"ARIS is probably the most mature product in terms of modeling an enterprise architecture so that it has context."
"If you ever tried to draw a picture in a browser app or with a cloud service, it is normally a painful death. ARIS works perfectly on diagrams in the browser, so I was excited. I like it because there have been so many bad experiences in the past with drawing or doing something in a browser. Normally, it's always painful because it's coded badly. With ARIS, it is really well-implemented. It's simple."
"The EPC modeling is very detailed, the semantic check is helpful, and auto-layout simplifies the formatting."
"The most valuable feature is the process documentation. For us, ARIS is a lifestyle more than a tool. It helps us learn how to think and how to plan for our system."
"The most valuable feature in the latest versions is the connect portal, where you can do very simple modeling using the web-based portal."
"The ability to sort via multiple criteria to identify the relationships you need for a specific object."
"In the future, I would definitely like to see the process administration (migration, audit, tracking) and process evaluation (optimize) features added to the community edition."
"Documentation can be improved."
"I don't like the UI of the Camunda Platform, I have found the Signavio solution to be much better for me to create the process designs and execute them. Additionally, I have found the tools in the Camunda Platform are not compatible with some of my other tools. They should improve this in the future."
"The initial setup can be complex for business users."
"I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java."
"If they could build some scripts or some configuration to get it up and running in a Docker environment, that would be good. I didn't find anything when on Docker, however, maybe they have something and I didn't see it yet."
"As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month."
"The user interface needs some polishing because it is too technical for end-users to use it."
"If there's no WiFi connection, you can't access ADONIS."
"The governance mechanism could be better, as could automation."
"There is a lot of room for improvement. They need to increase the performance of the system flow. They need to support it more. ARIS Process Governance is still quite basic, and they are using an old BPM and process automation module."
"The solution is difficult and not very exciting to learn."
"Its governance tool and integration with ESB and execution engine can be improved. Their partner support can also be improved."
"I believe the solutions BPM tools are not very good and need improvements."
"The workflow approval process could be represented better in the overviews."
"I had this decentralization mission where I had some friendly fights with the consultants of Software AG. My opinion was the business department should be able to publish their processes and do all their evaluation stuff in ARCM themselves. It has to be a one stop shop. I want a one stop shop to go from ARIS BPM to ARIS ARCM, because having everything go through that would be an improvement due to the inputs that we made with Software AG. They will make it possible that the trigger sent from BPM to ARCM will start their object generation."
"I use it strictly for developing the business process model. I don't use it for the actual automation. I do that with Vtenext. I have standardized on Vtenext, and I don't use ARIS BPM anymore. The Vtenext UI is just as good, and it is much more tightly coupled to the underlying object model. I can get more done in one session with Vtenext rather than first going to ARIS BPM, then importing, and having to edit it for tight coupling."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"I think Camunda BPM can improve their licensing costs. It isn't easy to find clients with Camunda BPM licenses mainly because it's quite expensive."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"The price of the solution is reasonable."
"It depends on different parameters."
"The price could be better."
"This is absolutely not the cheapest solution in the market, but for large companies, the price is fine."
"We have a concurrent license system."
"The setup cost and pricing depend on the license (Modeler, Viewer, Administrator)."
