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."

"Using the Component Diagram, Visual Paradigm helps with design and control, reusing components.""I like the fact that this solution is complete.""The solution is stable. It hasn't crashed, stopped or caused any issues in any way.""The solution is very user-friendly. It's easy to just open it and start working.""The pricing model is attractive.""The initial setup is straightforward.""It is easy-to-use and it helps understand its data modeling structure through the intuitive user interface."

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 »

"I would like to see the ability to easily export to groupware, such as Atlassian Confluence.""I would like to see something for visualizing innovation work maps.""The solution is not user-friendly. It uses a lot of memory and CPU. You have to have a good computer to use it.""The solution could be more compatible with other products in the future.""There are some connectivity issues that crop up rarely when used with SQL Server.""The solution can be heavy on resource usage."

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 »

"Over the years I've seen an increase in price, and it makes it difficult for a single person company, like me, to decide whether to extend the license.""You can use Paradigm on a subscription basis and you can choose from different tiers of subscription.""You can move between the tiers from month to month so you are not restricted to one pricing model."
