Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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.""Form building capabilities and well thought out process modelling are key points to this product.""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."

More Appian Pros »

"For an internal project, this is a solution that you can install and have up and running quite quickly.""We are documenting all of the processors and VPN. Then we are sharing it with our business users.""I've found the active community most valuable but it also provides you with a lot of other features.""The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.""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."

Cons
"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.""Authoring tool is slow to use resulted in limitations on how quickly solutions can be built.""It is also not easy to learn. Training tutorials could be improved."

More Appian Cons »

"The GUI needs to be improved, with more configuration options.""When you search for Camunda BPM resources or books on how to utilize Camunda BPM, it is lacking. When it comes to Alfresco, there are thousands of resources that can help you to utilize within AWS and its Group Services. I would like to see the usage of Camunda BPM on Amazon Web Services be improved.""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.""The user interface needs improvement. It should be more tailored to the end-user and offer a better user experience design over the user interface itself.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Appian Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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."
