Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite.""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.""Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design.""We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation.""The most valuable feature is the scheduling.""Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model.""Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible.""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 ability to sort via multiple criteria to identify the relationships you need for a specific object.""Aris BPA has a lot of tools that are more professional than Bizagi.""The most valuable feature in the latest versions is the connect portal, where you can do very simple modeling using the web-based portal.""If you ever tried to draw a picture in a browser app or with a cloud service, it is normally a painful death. ARIS works perfectly on diagrams in the browser, so I was excited. I like it because there have been so many bad experiences in the past with drawing or doing something in a browser. Normally, it's always painful because it's coded badly. With ARIS, it is really well-implemented. It's simple.""The ease of use is the most valuable. I have tried a number of BPMN packages, and I find the user interface of ARIS BPM easier and more intuitive than others. If your team is knowledgeable on BPMN, it is really pretty easy to figure out on your own because it adheres to the standards extremely well. I have tried Bizagi, BizFlow, and a variety of such solutions, and I just liked ARIS BPM better.""The solution's basic features are easy to use, overall designed well, and it has good process mining analysis.""The initial setup and installation are very straightforward.""It provides the discovery functionality, and you can have a simulation on top of it to get your design corrected to ensure that it is within the right state of parameters. It is a complete package that you can use from strategy to execution because you have the design layer, and within the design, you can also do analytics."

"It's very easy to collaborate with. It's very user-friendly""It has proved that it also works in complex circumstances."

Cons
"I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java.""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 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.""They have a migration plugin that can be used to migrate from one BPM to another BPM. It is in the beta stage since last year. If they can make it available in the market, it would be great. We are going to have a couple of migration projects for migrating from IBM BPM to Camunda, and this plugin would be useful. I have already discussed this with them two weeks ago and asked them to look into this and add it as a feature. We are expecting this plugin to be available in the next version. This is the only requirement we have at present. They keep on coming up with different features, which is helping us a lot. Its latest release that came out last month was awesome.""The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex.""As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month.""Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities.""If they could build some scripts or some configuration to get it up and running in a Docker environment, that would be good. I didn't find anything when on Docker, however, maybe they have something and I didn't see it yet."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"The solution is difficult and not very exciting to learn.""I believe the solutions BPM tools are not very good and need improvements.""Its governance tool and integration with ESB and execution engine can be improved. Their partner support can also be improved.""The model graphics can be exported in PDF, but the model is too small to read.""The governance mechanism could be better, as could automation.""The workflow approval process could be represented better in the overviews.""There is a lot of room for improvement. They need to increase the performance of the system flow. They need to support it more. ARIS Process Governance is still quite basic, and they are using an old BPM and process automation module.""I had this decentralization mission where I had some friendly fights with the consultants of Software AG. My opinion was the business department should be able to publish their processes and do all their evaluation stuff in ARCM themselves. It has to be a one stop shop. I want a one stop shop to go from ARIS BPM to ARIS ARCM, because having everything go through that would be an improvement due to the inputs that we made with Software AG. They will make it possible that the trigger sent from BPM to ARCM will start their object generation."

More ARIS BPA Cons »

"Initial setup is rather complex. You have to find a way to isolate the complexity, and find common ground.""The price is quite high. This is one weak point of the solution."

More ARIS Cloud Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""We're using the open-source version for now.""We pay for the license of this solution annually.""We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost.""Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""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."

More Camunda Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The setup cost and pricing depend on the license (Modeler, Viewer, Administrator).""This is absolutely not the cheapest solution in the market, but for large companies, the price is fine.""The price could be better.""We have a concurrent license system.""It depends on different parameters.""The price of the solution is reasonable."
