We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model."
"Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers."
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite."
"Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design."
"Camunda Platform is better than IBM BPM, and Azure. It is more elaborate."
"The interface and the number of connectors that they provide are the most valuable features. The support here, it's kind of okay. But the main thing is with the number of connectors and the UI, the user interface."
"We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."
"We are using the BPMN engine of Camunda; we are not using the user interface. We are using just the engine, the back end of this. For us, it is working quite well."
"It's very easy to collaborate with. It's very user-friendly"
"It has proved that it also works in complex circumstances."
"While this is a new product it has a mature feel from being built by a company with many years in the business."
"This is low-cost and very user friendly. A variety of models are available depending on the needs of the customer."
"The solution could use some enhancements like adding connectors, improving forms and having a mobile app, but everything is an enhancement rather than a flaw."
"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."
"If they could build some scripts or some configuration to get it up and running in a Docker environment, that would be good. I didn't find anything when on Docker, however, maybe they have something and I didn't see it yet."
"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."
"I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java."
"The migration strategy needs to be improved."
"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."
"When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly."
"The price is quite high. This is one weak point of the solution."
"Initial setup is rather complex. You have to find a way to isolate the complexity, and find common ground."
"As the product is very new, some minor features are still missing, but everything is there to handle day-to-day process modeling."
"There's an issue with the current manual that they're working on."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"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."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."
"We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"Pricing will differ between enterprises based on needs such as customization, but the company uses a standardized algorithm for determining this."
