Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""It has an open BPM""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 has a very good interface for workflow and business process design.""The flexibility is great.""I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite.""The Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it.""It is open-source. It supports microservice orchestration. This is what we are really interested in. We can customize our products depending on the use cases."

More Camunda Platform Pros »

"This is low-cost and very user friendly. A variety of models are available depending on the needs of the customer.""While this is a new product it has a mature feel from being built by a company with many years in the business."

More BIC Platform Pros »

"This product has helped us to work within standards for process planning.""Version management is helpful because I like to try different versions and then decide which of them should be the main model.""One of the most valuable features is ease of use which has really been a good thing to put into the business. People like tools that they can just pick up and use straight-away.""The GUI is very easy to use, where you can sit together with your colleagues, discuss the process, and during these discussions you can build up the model.""Process management/Process governance is what we think Signavio is very good at.""The most valuable feature is that you can customize it completely with all of the attributes that you need.""The ability to leave comments in the Collaboration Hub is a good and easy way for the employees to give feedback on the processes.""The reason we chose Signavio is it's a very robust industrial-grade business process modeling data tool, with data capture behind it, as well as a collaborative nature. A lot of it comes out of the box and requires less technology involvement. It can be run well by the business users. That's what we really like about it."

Cons
"We have faced problems with the performance.""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.""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 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.""When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly.""Lacking in forms visualization.""The only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"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."

More BIC Platform Cons »

"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.""Typically, a business process management suite would cover the whole lifecycle, from discovery to optimization and operations. This is running on the process server and providing some kind of low-code environment for developing business solutions. I think the latter part is missing, where SAP Connector comes in. Specifically, the execution of processes is missing, where you would design forms to take orders. This is typically part of some development environment for the process server to run processes from out of the models.""Part of the product that I think can improve is document control. That's currently not even possible. To work with documents we have something of a workaround using SharePoint.""Signavio already offers a wonderful range of functions. If variant management and customer journeys are optimized, Signavio can definitely bask in the glory of BPM tools. We also see optimization potential in the management of licenses, e.g. no named users but rather floating licenses and integration into the company's active directory.""I would like to have the option to select the color of items and subgroups in the glossary because right now it is fixed.""There is always room for improvement is the capability of integration with other solutions.""I would like to be able to link a single word within a textual description directly to the glossary.""I think the interface itself can improve a bit. I think the interface is still stuck about a decade in the past, if I may be so brutal about it. Some of the buttons are really small, so you can't even see them. I think it needs upgrading to the 21st century with apps and the way we use mobile phones."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition.""I use the open-source free version.""Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees.""The open-source version of the product is free to use.""Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""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.""There is an open-source version available, that in its core features (workflow and decision engine, modeler) is exactly the same as in the enterprise version."

More Camunda Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

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

More BIC Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I think we're spending about $150,000 a year on licensing costs.""SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees.""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.""This solution provides really great value for the money."
