We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I've found the active community most valuable but it also provides you with a lot of other features."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to share the logic within the rules engine with the business, so you can put it up for everybody to read."
"When I compare it with other BPM tools, like IBM, it is great, open source, and free when you use the community version."
"The solution is easily compatible with HTML forms and HTML language programming and that is the most significant part."
"The speed and execution of DMN was a big selling point for us. It's very good at conducting business processes that are easily modeled and presented in a way that's easy to understand."
"It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products."
"It has an open BPM"
"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."
"Process culture is making noise inside the organization because now, everybody knows that their time is being monitored."
"Since implementing we have had a faster time to solution, with fewer resources needed."
"The process models provide self-documenting systems."
"We appreciate the drag and drop functionality and the easy to access plug and play features."
"Appian also has very flexible local integration."
"Good workflow engines that bridge the gaps of processes."
"In terms of interface, it's very good. In terms of infrastructure, it's amazing and already using multiple tools behind the scenes. It's a low-code platform, so it's very easy to implement."
"The product has a very good mobile app."
"The free online Help and E-Learning is very strong."
"I like all of the features. I like that you can simulate the processes and add the time standard."
"The product has a comfortable GUI and a good environment for users."
"I find Bizagi so user friendly. I also think that its modeling abilities are great and it's easy to teach them to new users."
"The API is pretty straightforward."
"This solution is easy to use and it is a good tool for process modeling."
"The solution's simulation capabilities are the most valuable aspects."
"The most valuable feature is the simulation."
"I would say that Camunda should actually focus on small cases as well. There's a lot of space out there, for small businesses. If they can, they should cater to them."
"I would like to see the forms engine available in the open-source version of this solution."
"I would like to have a feature for audit logging, audit logs and audit log management. And some history of use for the audit logs."
"I would also like a very easy to use form builder."
"Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance."
"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."
"Lacking in forms visualization."
"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."
"The documentation needs to be improved."
"We would like to have more granular control for interface styling."
"My only request is that they decrease the license costs."
"The solution could use some more tutorials to help brand new users figure out how to use the product effectively."
"They should provide more flexibility so designers can create a more picture perfect device."
"Lacks integration with other products."
"It is also not easy to learn. Training tutorials could be improved."
"We have clients that want to use Office 365, Microsoft Analytics, and Power Apps. Appian just isn't the same as using something specifically designed to cater to the Microsoft Suite."
"It is difficult to drive ROI on types of processes involving complex business rules."
"The performance could use improvement. We couldn't connect the processes to on one file. The performance is an issue for us."
"It needs some better notation functionality."
"I think that they could improve their update process. Some of the process mining techniques could be added to Bizagi. I think that they can improve their simulation abilities to include more elements of the BPMN."
"The solution needs to make it easier to use RPA products on it. They may need an RPA specific interface. It would be better than having to make an RPA tool to use for viewing. Most of our work is about making RPA tools with the Bizagi, not using Bizagi itself."
"I would like to see more in terms of analytics and better reporting."
"There could be more documentation."
"Bizagi needs a way to define categories such as process groups like the APQC framework, PCF, and handle the processes within it."
"We are using the open-source version of this solution."
"Camunda is much cheaper."
"I use the open-source free version."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"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 depends on the number of users, although I recommend taking an unlimited license."
"The solution offers a monthly subscription model. That's what we use. I recall it being about $90 a month. They do have different tiers."
"It's an enterprise tool and can be used by enterprise only. So it's a very expensive tool."
"The licensing will be on a monthly basis. We are estimating that cost to be around $2000 to maybe $3,000 per month. We don't foresee any costs above that."
"The pricing can be a little confusing to customers."
"I think that its price is reasonable."
"This solution would be expensive for a company that has a lot of users."
"The Bizagi modeler can be downloaded free of charge."
"We have no issues with the pricing."
"It is only necessary to pay for licenses when ready to deploy applications to production."
"It has a very high price. Many clients complain about the price for maintaining the application on Bizagi."
"Make sure that your requirements are explicitly defined from the outset. This will help you choose the right setup and licensing for your needs."
"It is expensive."
