454,950 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"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."
"This solution has improved the way our organization does training."
"In terms of using the cloud version, if you're somebody who, like myself, has got a lot of experience and understands measures and notations and things, basically it's unrestricted. You can do so many things. You can do your Archimaze, you can do BPMN. There's lots of stuff you can do in there and if you're a good field person and you cause yourself re-using things or whatever, then it's very nice, it's very easy to use."
"Aris Connect opens collaboration opportunities between team members within the organization where they can actually submit change requests, navigate processes, and offer comments. It opens up the potential for BPM within the organization. I didn't see such an angle of a BPM portal with any other products. So I would say that's the best selling feature."
"The cloud version has the advantage that you can work on it from anywhere."
"In terms of UX design, somebody who has not had experience with ARIS will be able to use it very easily."
"It has proved that it also works in complex circumstances."
"It's very easy to collaborate with. It's very user-friendly"
"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."
"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."
"Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance."
"I would like to see more support for architectural diagrams."
"On an enterprise level, the ability to onboard somebody quickly is cumbersome because it just has too many things in it. It's got something like a hundred or more techniques and things in it."
"If you have multiple tiers of approvals into that update of the policy, or the process design itself, it takes ages to prepare those internal flows within the system."
"The trial version of this solution does not give you enough time to learn how to use it, so it should be extended to one year."
"It would be very helpful if this solution were more open and could integrate with other solutions like ServiceNow."
"Initial setup is rather complex. You have to find a way to isolate the complexity, and find common ground."
"The price is quite high. This is one weak point of the solution."
"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."
