Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible.""The best feature is the automation.""The most valuable feature is the scheduling.""Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model."

"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 initial setup was seamless. We didn't run into any hardships at all.""It provides us with real-time data on all connected systems in terms of how they're integrated with each other and how they are performing in a workflow manner.""Compared to other code tools that I've seen, Appian has a more robust rules engine"

More Appian Pros »

"Our company is based around Oracle processes. It provides a lot of flexibility in its processes.""The initial setup is straightforward.""We selected this solution not only for the BPM but for the entire package."

Cons
"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 solution could use some enhancements like adding connectors, improving forms and having a mobile app, but everything is an enhancement rather than a flaw.""The only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform.""The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex.""Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"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.""I would like to see more complete university tools. For example, with UiPath, I have had a good experience related to a free course in order to provide some users some different levels of knowledge. This extra training helps users not only use the solution but to develop further within the tool.""The graphical user interface could be easier to use. It should be simplified.""I wouldn't say their response time is long, but it could be quicker."

More Appian Cons »

"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.""The solution needs to offer better integration with third-party systems.""From my knowledge of this solution, I don't see that the Oracle BPM includes features such as the growth of discovery and process mining."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition.""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."

More Camunda Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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.""The price of this solution is a little high here in Mongolia.""The license is a bit expensive and the pricing model is sometimes confusing for new users or business users. It is difficult for them to know what volume of usage they will have to be able to purchase the best-suited license at the beginning."
