We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite."
"Overall, the solution has been very solid."
"The most valuable feature is the scheduling."
"The modeler is useful for creating the flow. The way to access the data through their REST API is also valuable. This is what we're using right now."
"Camunda Platform is better than IBM BPM, and Azure. It is more elaborate."
"The best feature is the automation."
"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 is probably the most mature product in terms of modeling an enterprise architecture so that it has context."
"The initial setup and installation are very straightforward."
"The solution's basic features are easy to use, overall designed well, and it has good process mining analysis."
"Aris BPA has a lot of tools that are more professional than Bizagi."
"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."
"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 EPC modeling is very detailed, the semantic check is helpful, and auto-layout simplifies the formatting."
"The stability of the product is very good."
"The initial setup can be complex for business users."
"Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly."
"We have faced problems with the performance."
"Lacking in forms visualization."
"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."
"Its governance tool and integration with ESB and execution engine can be improved. Their partner support can also be improved."
"The workflow approval process could be represented better in the overviews."
"The governance mechanism could be better, as could automation."
"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."
"The interface is a little archaic."
"The model graphics can be exported in PDF, but the model is too small to read."
"Integrating with or interfacing with other tools like data management tools would be very helpful."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"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 use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"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."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"We have a concurrent license system."
"The price could be better."
"This is absolutely not the cheapest solution in the market, but for large companies, the price is fine."
"It depends on different parameters."
"The price of the solution is reasonable."
"The setup cost and pricing depend on the license (Modeler, Viewer, Administrator)."
