We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It has an open BPM"
"I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine."
"The modeler is useful for creating the flow. The way to access the data through their REST API is also valuable. This is what we're using right now."
"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."
"Camunda Platform is better than IBM BPM, and Azure. It is more elaborate."
"The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable."
"We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite."
"It's very easy to collaborate with. It's very user-friendly"
"It has proved that it also works in complex circumstances."
"I have done a lot of modeling over quite a number of years, and I think that the modeling capabilities in Signavio are state of the art."
"The most valuable feature is that you can customize it completely with all of the attributes that you need."
"The most valuable feature for me is usability."
"The fact that the repository is available on the web is the most valuable feature. It's a very simple tool. If you can use something simple and visual, you should be able to use the model as well in Signavio. It has the ability, for example, to track versioning control, so if you make updates to the processes, you have the ability to track the versions as well."
"I love the collaboration function, especially the option to invite people who don't have any users on the licenses."
"The collaboration hub, which helps us in terms of being able to communicate with our customers, brings everybody into the tool and close to the process, allowing them to comment and to implement their own processes."
"We could increase the transparency and speed for the new ERP introduction. The status and changes by the new system are now clear to everybody and it is a great tool to train the people."
"The formatting features are quite good because you can create very complex models, but you can easily clean them up so that they look very nice."
"I would like to see better pricing."
"The migration strategy needs to be improved."
"The only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform."
"The user interface needs some polishing because it is too technical for end-users to use it."
"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."
"I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java."
"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."
"The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex."
"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."
"Moreover, the functionality to show different process variations with "views" could be improved to allow more customization of these views. I believe this would increase the user experience and administrative efforts maintaining these process variations."
"We sometimes experience downtime or a dropped connection, so I think that the stability can be improved for the SaaS solution."
"The user management functionality in Process Manager is not as user friendly as the one in the Collaboration Hub."
"The performance metrics appearing in the collaboration hub needs to be improved."
"I think the biggest selling point that Signavio talks about is its collaborative aspect. However, there's still a lot more improvement in terms of what they can do, how they receive comments, address comments, whether they actually provide feedback, etc. There is still a little bit more improvement to be made on those areas."
"I would like to be able to include images in the documentation."
"It could be more flexible from a customization point of view, where the user is able to display only whatever he needs."
"I would like to see the inclusion of some document management functionality so that we don't need to integrate with a second solution to accommodate this."
"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."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"I use the open-source free version."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"This solution provides really great value for the money."
"SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees."
"I think we're spending about $150,000 a year on licensing costs."
"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."
"We are only able to use the free academic licenses because we have a financial constraint. We are not able to pay for commercial licenses to use this kind of tool."
"My client purchased one editor license and the collaboration hub, which covers up to a hundred people."
