We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We are using the BPMN engine of Camunda; we are not using the user interface. We are using just the engine, the back end of this. For us, it is working quite well."
"Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design."
"I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine."
"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."
"It is open-source. It supports microservice orchestration. This is what we are really interested in. We can customize our products depending on the use cases."
"Overall, the solution has been very solid."
"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 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."
"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 ability to sort via multiple criteria to identify the relationships you need for a specific object."
"The EPC modeling is very detailed, the semantic check is helpful, and auto-layout simplifies the formatting."
"AuraPortal has the best price for its process."
"AuraPortal is very user-friendly and flexible."
"I would like to see better pricing."
"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 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."
"When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly."
"In the future, I would definitely like to see the process administration (migration, audit, tracking) and process evaluation (optimize) features added to the community edition."
"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."
"Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved."
"The interface is a little archaic."
"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."
"I believe the solutions BPM tools are not very good and need improvements."
"The model graphics can be exported in PDF, but the model is too small to read."
"The solution is difficult and not very exciting to learn."
"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 use it strictly for developing the business process model. I don't use it for the actual automation. I do that with Vtenext. I have standardized on Vtenext, and I don't use ARIS BPM anymore. The Vtenext UI is just as good, and it is much more tightly coupled to the underlying object model. I can get more done in one session with Vtenext rather than first going to ARIS BPM, then importing, and having to edit it for tight coupling."
"More documentation and the ability to extract different reports about different relations in the objects I use will help."
"One thing that could be improved would be for it to be deployed in a shorter time."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"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."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"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 open-source version of the product is free to use."
"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."
"The price of the solution is reasonable."
"We have a concurrent license system."
"It depends on different parameters."
"The price could be better. It's quite expensive."
