We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"There's this graphic that tells you how many lines or how many tickets are in each step. In that way, you know where you stand. I find this feature very valuable."
"The most valuable feature is the scheduling."
"Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers."
"Camunda Platform is better than IBM BPM, and Azure. It is more elaborate."
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite."
"It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products."
"Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible."
"We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."
"The most valuable feature is that it is compatible with Visual Studio and .NET, and we can program it. Its speed is very good, and it is also stable and easy to deploy."
"The solution offers a free version of their product."
"I like the ease of use and the fact that you can download and use their free version, which is unlimited. However, while it's unlimited use, some features aren't available."
"Very user friendly and a professional solution."
"The API is pretty straightforward."
"This solution is easy to use and it is a good tool for process modeling."
"The initial setup is super simple."
"I like that Bizagi is fully compatible with BPMN 2.0. It also eases the way in which we work with BPMN 2.0 itself, which is a comprehensive and rather complex notation standard."
"The user interface is better than all of the open-source BPMs that I have tried."
"I find process management and user interface designing the most valuable features."
"Flexible and drag-and-drop type of UI is very valuable. The integrations are also very good. You can build workflows very quickly, which is my favorite activity. By using the GUI, you can build the entire mechanism, notifications, and all this kind of stuff."
"One of the most valuable features is you can create without coding, it is a low code platform."
"Lacking in forms visualization."
"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 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."
"Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance."
"Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities."
"We have faced problems with the performance."
"Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved."
"I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java."
"I'm not really satisfied with the reporting aspect."
"Cloud support for their process mapping tool could be better. To map all your processes in any way and call your data, you need to download their on-premise setup or their desktop setup. Cloud support for process mapping is limited, and they should work on that."
"For very large projects and deployments, the automated "One Click" deployment wizard can sometimes take a long time to complete."
"In terms of what needs improvement, the costs can be lowered."
"Bizagi needs a way to define categories such as process groups like the APQC framework, PCF, and handle the processes within it."
"I would like to see the automation process included in the next release."
"It would be useful if we can connect Bizagi to other solutions, such as a local financial solution or Power BI. It would also be good and helpful to be able to connect Bizagi to some services solutions. It should also support right-to-left languages, such as Arabic."
"It should provide the ability to create a simple application. It can be used for database modeling diagrams and forms, but it should also support CRUD, that is, create, read, update and delete."
"I should be able to park the tasks that are within a process in a kind of container, and dynamically, a super admin should be able to connect these processes. This kind of feature might be helpful."
"The interface is advanced and quite good, but it could improve."
"There could be an improvement in IoT connectivity."
"I have run into a lot of problems because there is not enough documentation."
"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."
"I use the open-source free version."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"This solution would be expensive for a company that has a lot of users."
"I'm trying the free unlimited version with unlimited use. But you have to pay to add some features."
"It is only necessary to pay for licenses when ready to deploy applications to production."
"It is not expensive."
"Some solutions are completely free. One would be the business process diagramming tool, the server beneath it, and the automation tool. You don't need to pay to map the business process, but you would need to when you want to execute any of the commands. So, basically, they lure you in with a free ride, and when you want to scale the solution, you'll have to pay for it."
"It is expensive."
"It has a very high price. Many clients complain about the price for maintaining the application on Bizagi."
"We have no issues with the pricing."
"The price is fair for what we are using the solution for."
"We are using the Community Version, which can be used free of charge."
"The price of the solution is reasonable."
"Licensing cost for the Enterprise edition comes out to be around 40,000 a year. There is also a Community edition, which is free. Some customers can go for the Community edition, but some of them require the Enterprise edition. Big companies go for the Enterprise edition, which comes with a lot of additional features such as a mobile app."
