Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We have a lot of users, almost 1,800, and we needed something affordable, stable and something that could be used by a large financial company. This solution truly fit the bill.""For an internal project, this is a solution that you can install and have up and running quite quickly.""We are documenting all of the processors and VPN. Then we are sharing it with our business users.""I've found the active community most valuable but it also provides you with a lot of other features.""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 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.""When I compare it with other BPM tools, like IBM, it is great, open source, and free when you use the community version.""The solution is easily compatible with HTML forms and HTML language programming and that is the most significant part."

"You can relate different aspects of an organization to each other, and you can clearly define the rates seen in the application.""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.""The most valuable features are business process modeling and reporting.""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.""This solution has helped us in terms of discovering business processes.""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."

More ARIS BPM Pros »

"It enables decisions based upon processes that we do model, and ultimately move forward with.""It has the ability to document in different formats. It is not tied to a specific model. You can look at it from different angles and see the intuitive nature of it. It always generates a valid diagram. You cannot create something that is not BPMN compliant.""The solution is stable. All the refreshes run very well.""The business process discovery is excellent. The diagram or blueprinting functionality of the solution are very good. It's quite easy. You can link the sub-processes and get a big overview of the whole process then.""It has a built-in capability to capture process owners and managers against processes along with other process governance roles.""For me, what I find to be the most valuable is its simplicity and the association with Microsoft Office.""It's a powerful tool."

Cons
"If Camunda could develop something that creates user forms that would be a great feature to have. They also need to improve the UI.""The GUI needs to be improved, with more configuration options.""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.""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.""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 like to see the forms engine available in the open-source version of this solution.""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 also like a very easy to use form builder."

More Camunda BPM Cons »

"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.""Making it more customizable and easy to learn would be a benefit.""I would like to see the reporting aspects improved.""With ARIS BPM, the script creation is quite cumbersome. With version ten, we needed our developers to do scripting.""Integration with third-party tools should be improved (e.g. based on APIs).""The governance mechanism could be better, as could automation.""The interface is a little archaic.""The workflow approval process could be represented better in the overviews."

More ARIS BPM Cons »

"We haven't yet been able to dabble in case management with Blueworks Live, as it is not yet offered with the product.""We would like the ability to add additional custom colors. We would like to color additional items to add notes to the blueprint.""The solution is a very basic discovery product so it doesn't have that much modeling capability. This can be improved.""The font size is really, really small and it's really not useful to print out process models because you cannot read what's written in different boxes. This makes it necessary for people to have access to the tool. We view licenses to see how the printing or output is. It's not very good.""The user interface is quite easy at first but process analysts soon run into roadblocks of limited functionality, which is disappointing.""It is BPMN-compliant but the tool needs to be more involved to get into a completely 2.0 oriented tool. It has a few things but it's not the complete BPMN model.""We don't like the user interface. It's complex. It's a powerful tool but it's complex to implement and requires a lot of manual work."

This solution was in our price range.""We are using the open-source version of this solution.""Camunda is much cheaper.""I use the open-source free version.""The open-source version of the product is free to use.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
