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 »

"A complete business project management suite which seems to open endless possibility.""The most valuable feature is probably the nature of it.""The Signavio tool is very easy to use and it is one of the reasons why I like it.""The most valuable features of this solution are the portal for spreading it over the organization, the usability, and the workflow generator in the background.""The most valuable feature for me is usability.""The feature that I like the most is the collaboration hub, where every user or every employee can see the process in the overview.""I like the collaboration and the real-time aspects of it.""The interface is very intuitive and includes a drag-and-drop function."

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 »

"It is difficult to quickly digest the vast power of the suite and make use of those capabilities fully.""If you start from scratch then I think this product would be ideal, but if you already have something then it may or may not suit you.""I find it difficult to figure out how I can better align this solution with my KPIs.""It is sometimes difficult to find the match between what is possible and what is wanted, or what is helpful with the product, so better documentation may assist in this regard.""If you're going to use the tool the way I'm using it, which is to work with businesses and capture what they're thinking, it would be helpful to be able to insert other objects onto a diagram.""Being able to integrate the Workflow Accelerator with more products would be good.""There could be something more on the reporting side of it for the processes you have captured or processes that might be work in progress to see where to target your effort because you don't always have lots of resources to spare""There are a few bugs when you use the Microsoft Surface Hub with the big screen."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is less cost-prohibitive than other solutions on the market. 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."

"In terms of pricing, it would be nice if it were more affordable."

More ARIS BPM Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Lower than the competition with highly flexible licensing plans.""This solution provides really great value for the money.""My client purchased one editor license and the collaboration hub, which covers up to a hundred people.""I think that the price of the licenses is between $2,000 USD and $3,000 USD per license per year, plus the hub usage. I cannot remember the exact cost, but it is affordable.""I think we're spending about $150,000 a year on licensing costs.""SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees."

Hello, so far most of the points you have reported are addressed here: https://documentation.signavio.com/suite/en-us/Content/process-manager/userguide/reporting-intro.htm

You can export all process model attributes (including custom attributes) to Excel. For example, we set a process maturity attribute against our processes and then extract it against process sponsors and owners.

Selection and filtering are done in Excel, not in the reporting tool. There are quite a few standard reports as well. You can import data to the repository for use in process attributes (standard or custom) - we did this with our process roles. You could do it with any other layer of your business or technical architecture.

You can create process links for both vertical drop-down and lateral links between processes which end users can navigate. Also, you can hide or show attributes and custom attributes for different user groups who browse the published architecture.

I don't understand what is meant by "...create a custom report for push..." Perhaps you mean schedule reports for automatic dissemination? If so, no you can't do that. However, I'm aware that an API can be purchased that will likely allow you to do much more in the way of integration and automation but we don't have that.

I hope this helps.
