We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It has an open BPM"
"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 Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it."
"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."
"Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers."
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite."
"Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model."
"It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products."
"The solution's basic features are easy to use, overall designed well, and it has good process mining analysis."
"The EPC modeling is very detailed, the semantic check is helpful, and auto-layout simplifies the formatting."
"The most valuable feature in the latest versions is the connect portal, where you can do very simple modeling using the web-based portal."
"The initial setup and installation are very straightforward."
"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."
"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."
"Aris BPA has a lot of tools that are more professional than Bizagi."
"The ability to sort via multiple criteria to identify the relationships you need for a specific object."
"In terms of its most valuable features, this solution, in general, will provide all you need and it's very convenient to use. We can share our details to collaborative platforms. We can give access to users. It's pretty flexible."
"The fact that you can see and create something that fits your business is the most valuable thing in this platform. It is a customizable product, so it fits your needs."
"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."
"As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month."
"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 solution could use some enhancements like adding connectors, improving forms and having a mobile app, but everything is an enhancement rather than a flaw."
"When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly."
"The initial setup can be complex for business users."
"Documentation can be improved."
"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 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."
"The workflow approval process could be represented better in the overviews."
"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 interface is a little archaic."
"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 believe the solutions BPM tools are not very good and need improvements."
"They are not going for any add-ons right now. It's the same version we are still using and there is no plan of upgrading and/or creating any add-ons at all."
"Its licensing needs to be simplified. Currently, its licensing is very complex. It contains a number of pieces, and you have to be an expert in reading all the conditions in the license. They should simplify the licensing and make it easier to understand. It would make a customer's life easier."
"Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"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."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"It depends on different parameters."
"We have a concurrent license system."
"The price could be better."
"The setup cost and pricing depend on the license (Modeler, Viewer, Administrator)."
"The price of the solution is reasonable."
"This is absolutely not the cheapest solution in the market, but for large companies, the price is fine."
"Its price is reasonable, but its licensing is very complex. This platform contains a number of pieces, and you have to be an expert in reading all the conditions in the license. They should simplify its licensing."
