We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products."
"We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."
"There's this graphic that tells you how many lines or how many tickets are in each step. In that way, you know where you stand. I find this feature very valuable."
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite."
"The most valuable feature is the scheduling."
"Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers."
"The modeler is useful for creating the flow. The way to access the data through their REST API is also valuable. This is what we're using right now."
"I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine."
"We have been quite satisfied with the stability of the solution."
"I found the following features very useful: DAG - Workload management and orchestration of tasks using."
"The best part of Airflow is its direct support for Python, especially because Python is so important for data science, engineering, and design. This makes the programmatic aspect of our work easy for us, and it means we can automate a lot."
"The initial setup was straightforward and it does not take long to complete."
"The reason we went with Airflow is its DAG presentation, that shows the relationships among everything. It's more of a configuration-driven workflow."
"I like the UI rework, it's much easier."
"The product integrates well with other pipelines and solutions."
"The documentation capabilities are very good. Very structured documents and process versions are valuable features, and being able to communicate that to our customers is also a very good feature. It has a good balance between the effort and the result. So, you don't need to be too detailed. You can document while you are modeling, which is a very good feature."
"It is easy to use and easy to learn. It is also fully compatible with BPMN virtual tool. Bizagi is very fast in responding to and fixing the issues."
"The most valuable feature is that it is compatible with Visual Studio and .NET, and we can program it. Its speed is very good, and it is also stable and easy to deploy."
"With the appropriate governance framework, properly trained business analysts can be empowered to design and build business solutions themselves."
"The initial setup is super simple."
"The most valuable feature is the organizational modeling capability."
"Very user friendly and a professional solution."
"The user interface is pretty good."
"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."
"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."
"I would like to see better pricing."
"We have faced problems with the performance."
"I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java."
"The initial setup can be complex for business users."
"The migration strategy needs to be improved."
"The dashboard is connected into the BPM flow that could be improved."
"I would like to see it more friendly for other use cases."
"We're currently using version 1.10, but I understand that there's a lot of improvements in version 2. In the earlier version that we're using, we sometimes have problems with maintenance complexity. Actually using Airflow is okay, but maintaining it has been difficult."
"UI can be improved with additional user-friendly features for non-programmers and for fewer coding practitioner requirements."
"One specific feature that is missing from Airflow is that the steps of your workflow are not pipelined, meaning the stageless steps of any workflow. Not every workflow can be implemented within Airflow."
"The scalability of the solution itself is not as we expected. Being on the cloud, it should be easy to scale, however, it's not."
"Technical support is an area that needs improvement."
"Its performance needs to be improved. The main thing is that it is limited, especially in terms of the response times. When the processes become a bit large, it is very awkward to work with the Bizagi modeler. When you have already modeled but start to rearrange, it is quite a bit of an effort to change the stuff. When you rearrange lanes or have new structures, it goes rather squiggly up and down and so on, which could be improved. The visual outputs of the DIREPs of the process models are pixelated and have a bad image quality. It is a PNG or JPEG, and you cannot export it as a PDF. When you have rather large processes, you should be able to arrange them hierarchically. Currently, it is not supported. If you use sub-processes and inflate a process, suddenly the arrangement is totally different, and although you know the process, you have to look where is it now. You need a good understanding of the levels of your processes before you start in Bizagi. It can have automatic support for optimal presentation. In BPM, you should have it from the top left to the bottom right. However, in most cases, people don't know how they should arrange it. Therefore, it would be nice to have a suggestion system for different arrangements to be able to better present the process."
"It would be useful if we can connect Bizagi to other solutions, such as a local financial solution or Power BI. It would also be good and helpful to be able to connect Bizagi to some services solutions. It should also support right-to-left languages, such as Arabic."
"I would like to see more in terms of analytics and better reporting."
"Cloud support for their process mapping tool could be better. To map all your processes in any way and call your data, you need to download their on-premise setup or their desktop setup. Cloud support for process mapping is limited, and they should work on that."
"Its price can be improved. The price is high for the application as well as for maintaining and developing applications. When you develop, for example, a BPM, you need to pay a lot for Bizagi."
"For very large projects and deployments, the automated "One Click" deployment wizard can sometimes take a long time to complete."
"Bizagi doesn't have integrations with other solutions, such as ERP systems. In the industry and your company, you have a lot of systems with which you need to integrate, but Bizagi doesn't have such integrations, which makes it very difficult. Its scalability can also be improved. It is good for a startup, but when you need something more complex, it is not good."
"The technical support is not fast enough and should be improved."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"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."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"I use the open-source free version."
"Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."
"The pricing for the product is reasonable."
"Although Airflow is open source software, there's also commercial support for it by Astronomer. We personally don't use the commercial support, but it's always an option if you don't mind the extra cost."
"We are using the open-source version of Apache Airflow."
"This solution would be expensive for a company that has a lot of users."
"It has a very high price. Many clients complain about the price for maintaining the application on Bizagi."
"The Bizagi modeler can be downloaded free of charge."
"I used to be very pleased with the pricing. Now, it's a bit more complicated. I don't remember exactly, however, it might be $10 a month per user."
"I'm trying the free unlimited version with unlimited use. But you have to pay to add some features."
"It is not expensive."
"From what I know of the market, I think Bizagi is a cheap solution for process engineering. Out of the solutions I've tried, from cheapest to most expensive, would be Vizor, Bizagi, Signavio, and then Siemens. I used a version of Bizagi that my university provided for free, so I have never paid for a license."
"We didn't use the licensed versions where you could exactly go into automatization. However, we looked at the pricing in the beginning, and the only thing that I remember is that it was too expensive for the things we were using because our clients would also have to license the product. One client said that it was too expensive for the benefit they get out of it."

Airflow is a platform to programmatically author, schedule and monitor workflows.
Use airflow to author workflows as directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) of tasks. The airflow scheduler executes your tasks on an array of workers while following the specified dependencies. Rich command line utilities make performing complex surgeries on DAGs a snap. The rich user interface makes it easy to visualize pipelines running in production, monitor progress, and troubleshoot issues when needed.
When workflows are defined as code, they become more maintainable, versionable, testable, and collaborative.
