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

Pros
This solution has helped us in terms of discovering business processes.The stability of the ARIS BPM platform is quite good. The nice thing about it is the central database, where we can use all of our data. We can even manage users.The most valuable features are business process modeling and reporting.It has the ability to scale up, as well as integrate with other systems within the organization to get real-time information from dashboards and reports.You can relate different aspects of an organization to each other, and you can clearly define the rates seen in the application.It has allowed us to model our enterprise process architecture.BPA, the modeling tool, is the main module used because of our need for documentation.​​ARIS process modeling and analysis allows integration of end-to-end business processes with the organization's vision, strategies, and business objectives, through visual management.

It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products.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.The solution is easily compatible with HTML forms and HTML language programming and that is the most significant part.When I compare it with other BPM tools, like IBM, it is great, open source, and free when you use the community version.The most valuable feature is the ability to share the logic within the rules engine with the business, so you can put it up for everybody to read.The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.I've found the active community most valuable but it also provides you with a lot of other features.We are documenting all of the processors and VPN. Then we are sharing it with our business users.

Cons
Integration with third-party tools should be improved (e.g. based on APIs).With ARIS BPM, the script creation is quite cumbersome. With version ten, we needed our developers to do scripting.I would like to see the reporting aspects improved.Making it more customizable and easy to learn would be a benefit.One of the biggest challenges is to realistically enable the defined structures of the processes that you have in ARIS documented, and then actually implement them in the business.Displaying role allocation matrix models in ARIS Connect needs improvement.Areas for improvement include sales, prospecting, shopping, customer service, after-sales (claims and advice for the client), and all processes pertaining to customer loyalty.​Training is one of the important aspects for process awareness. As soon as a process is rolled out, process training is required. If ARIS could generate output in PowerPoint, it would be great for business users.

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.Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance.I would also like a very easy to use form builder.I would like to have a feature for audit logging, audit logs and audit log management. And some history of use for the audit logs.I would like to see the forms engine available in the open-source version of this solution.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 would say that Camunda should actually focus on small cases as well. There's a lot of space out there, for small businesses. If they can, they should cater to them.When you search for Camunda BPM resources or books on how to utilize Camunda BPM, it is lacking. When it comes to Alfresco, there are thousands of resources that can help you to utilize within AWS and its Group Services. I would like to see the usage of Camunda BPM on Amazon Web Services be improved.

Pricing and Cost Advice
In terms of pricing, it would be nice if it were more affordable.You will never get a fixed price for this product because they will go in and ask you what kind of environment would you like to set up? How many people will you work with? How big is your organization? Today, they have a fixed price to say, "Okay, just to start the business area, buy two licenses for modeling and eight people that can look into the product." They have this kind of fixed price. It's 50,000 Danish Krone. If you divided that by about six, then you get the pricing in dollars. Still, when you are going out, negotiate and find the right price. You will never get a fixed price: "It costs this and, if you take ten of these, seven of these and eight of these, and then it costs this." No, you negotiate every time.From my point of view, no, it is not cheap, but it is not too expensive because you get this big organization behind it, technical support, and all those things. It's not so expensive to use. It's a Rolls Royce in this field, I know that. Even for small organizations, they can get so much effect from using this tool, in a very fast way, so the money will be back in the customer's pocket very fast.If you can afford it, it's the best so far.ARIS Express​ is free.​It is on the higher side.Negotiate. Price is high so make sure you’re getting the best deal.
