We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible."
"The most valuable feature is the scheduling."
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite."
"I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine."
"The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable."
"Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model."
"Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design."
"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 haven't ever needed to take service breaks and we can scale it throughout our company without any problem."
"It is possible to do the whole drafting process at the same time in Sagnavio so you don't have a double effort of writing it once, arranging it and entering it again."
"As a business transformation suite, Signavio offers a number of integrated helpful tools. The Process Modeler helps with the conceptual work, but is directly integrated with the components of the Workflow Accelerator (Automation) and the Process Intelligence (Mining). This makes Signavio an indispensable service package."
"The fact that the repository is available on the web is the most valuable feature. It's a very simple tool. If you can use something simple and visual, you should be able to use the model as well in Signavio. It has the ability, for example, to track versioning control, so if you make updates to the processes, you have the ability to track the versions as well."
"There are many valuable features, of course. I would say the main value of Signavio is to have your current process map in a way that is easy to read and derive optimization actions to make it leaner, faster, more user friendly, etc. Another great feature is the visualization, which is easy to see and read. How they map the process is also very user friendly, with drag-and-drop functionality. Also, it's a very self-explanatory, user-friendly solution."
"This is one of the best solutions and it is easy to implement."
"The collaboration function in the project views is valuable because people can comment on the processes and we can respond."
"The reason we chose Signavio is it's a very robust industrial-grade business process modeling data tool, with data capture behind it, as well as a collaborative nature. A lot of it comes out of the box and requires less technology involvement. It can be run well by the business users. That's what we really like about it."
"All in all, Signavio usability is excellent. Anyone can learn to use the tool quickly. This increases acceptance as employees are not facing a high learning curve. With the offered usability it is easy to model processes also live in workshops."
"The only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform."
"The support definitely can be improved. Apart from that, the language should be extendable to other platforms. If I want to write, I'll run a different platform, like Python code on top of it, or COBOL code on top of it, and it should support those languages."
"If there were some industry templates it would have helped significantly, because it is similar to a process map for a domain. That is what we are currently creating, a domain-relevant process map."
"Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance."
"The solution could use some enhancements like adding connectors, improving forms and having a mobile app, but everything is an enhancement rather than a flaw."
"Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved."
"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."
"As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month."
"If there's no WiFi connection, you can't access ADONIS."
"Part of the product that I think can improve is document control. That's currently not even possible. To work with documents we have something of a workaround using SharePoint."
"It's very user-orientated, which is why I gave it a high rating, even if it is not perfect in every corner."
"I would like to see more integration with the process manager in terms of the workflow accelerator."
"We sometimes experience downtime or a dropped connection, so I think that the stability can be improved for the SaaS solution."
"If you start from scratch then I think this product would be ideal, but if you already have something then it may or may not suit you."
"Moreover, the functionality to show different process variations with "views" could be improved to allow more customization of these views. I believe this would increase the user experience and administrative efforts maintaining these process variations."
"Signavio already offers a wonderful range of functions. If variant management and customer journeys are optimized, Signavio can definitely bask in the glory of BPM tools. We also see optimization potential in the management of licenses, e.g. no named users but rather floating licenses and integration into the company's active directory."
"The user administration, the user-group administration, and the license models need improvement."
"Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"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."
"There is an open-source version available, that in its core features (workflow and decision engine, modeler) is exactly the same as in the enterprise version."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"I use the open-source free version."
"This solution provides really great value for the money."
"I think we're spending about $150,000 a year on licensing costs."
"SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees."
"We are only able to use the free academic licenses because we have a financial constraint. We are not able to pay for commercial licenses to use this kind of tool."
