Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products.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.The solution is easily compatible with HTML forms and HTML language programming and that is the most significant part.When I compare it with other BPM tools, like IBM, it is great, open source, and free when you use the community version.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.The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.I've found the active community most valuable but it also provides you with a lot of other features.We are documenting all of the processors and VPN. Then we are sharing it with our business users.

While this is a new product it has a mature feel from being built by a company with many years in the business.

The most valuable feature is the integrated data model, so if I change the name of an item, all models using that object are automatically updated.The most valuable features are the flexibility and adaptability of Sparx Enterprise Architect.Some of the business processes are very easy to compare when you have the diagrams.I like that there is support for software patterns.Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect supports multiple modeling languages like ArchiMate for database design, software lifecycle visualization, and team management.I have found the Meta Model tuning feature useful as it provides me with an overview of all my work needs.Its most valuable feature is the Zachman Framework.We can easily use it with our new customers.

Cons
If there were some industry templates it would have helped significantly, because it is similar to a process map for a domain. That is what we are currently creating, a domain-relevant process map.Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance.I would also like a very easy to use form builder.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 like to see the forms engine available in the open-source version of this solution.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 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.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.

As the product is very new, some minor features are still missing, but everything is there to handle day-to-day process modeling.

This solution should have better ease of use for the uninitiated.Using EA involves a steep learning curve if you want to understand its capabilities and functionality.I think that collaboration can be better.It would be nice to have it supported on the Linux operating system.There used to be that feature in ArchiMate Modeling of Enterprise Architect called inherited relationships. Now it's gone.It should be made Windows compatible.The reporting needs improvement.Weak in regards to data modelling. No logical or physical modelling or migration from conceptual to physical.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I use the open-source free version.Camunda is much cheaper.We are using the open-source version of this solution.It is less cost-prohibitive than other solutions on the market. This solution was in our price range.

Pricing will differ between enterprises based on needs such as customization, but the company uses a standardized algorithm for determining this.

In terms of cost, Sparx EA is probably one of the cheapest tools I have ever used.
