Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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
It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products.
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.
The solution is easily compatible with HTML forms and HTML language programming and that is the most significant part.
When I compare it with other BPM tools, like IBM, it is great, open source, and free when you use the community version.
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.
The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.
We appreciate the drag and drop functionality and the easy to access plug and play features.
Form building capabilities and well thought out process modelling are key points to this product.
The process models provide self-documenting systems.
Since implementing we have had a faster time to solution, with fewer resources needed.
Process culture is making noise inside the organization because now, everybody knows that their time is being monitored.
The initial setup is straightforward.
Our company is based around Oracle processes. It provides a lot of flexibility in its processes.
The Workspace is a full, rich application where most users can find what they want. It shows them a list of their work.
This solution has given us a quick time to market, the ability to integrate with the rest of the corporate applications, and the ability to hire talent in low-cost locations.
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.
Lacking in forms visualization.
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.
I would also like a very easy to use form builder.
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 like to see the forms engine available in the open-source version of this solution.
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.
The solution could use some more tutorials to help brand new users figure out how to use the product effectively.
Authoring tool is slow to use resulted in limitations on how quickly solutions can be built.
My only request is that they decrease the license costs.
We would like to have more granular control for interface styling.
The documentation needs to be improved.
The solution needs to offer better integration with third-party systems.
We have had some issues with version migration, from one version of processes to another. We would have to call Oracle Services but on a day to day, we didn't have any issues.
Overall, the engine and the UI both have to be made lighter.
Existing APIs in the product need to be fine-tuned, made more robust and flexible for adoption.
Pricing and Cost Advice
I use the open-source free version.
Camunda is much cheaper.
We are using the open-source version of this solution.
It is less cost-prohibitive than other solutions on the market. This solution was in our price range.
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.
The cost depends on the number of users, although I recommend taking an unlimited license.
The licensing model is good.
