Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model.""We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation.""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 Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it.""The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.""Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design.""Camunda Platform is better than IBM BPM, and Azure. It is more elaborate.""We are using the BPMN engine of Camunda; we are not using the user interface. We are using just the engine, the back end of this. For us, it is working quite well."

"The documentation capabilities are very good. Very structured documents and process versions are valuable features, and being able to communicate that to our customers is also a very good feature. It has a good balance between the effort and the result. So, you don't need to be too detailed. You can document while you are modeling, which is a very good feature.""Bizagi is flexible. I can share things with other consultants because it is the most commonly used software in my community. It has been a great and good resource for us in making sure that we adhere to the process.""The solution's simulation capabilities are the most valuable aspects.""Bizagi is simple. It's simple to learn.""Great mapping feature that's easy to use.""The amount of control that this solution provides is great.""It is easy to use and easy to learn. It is also fully compatible with BPMN virtual tool. Bizagi is very fast in responding to and fixing the issues.""With the appropriate governance framework, properly trained business analysts can be empowered to design and build business solutions themselves."

"The workflow engine of K2 is its main strength. Its workflow engine is probably one of the best, and that's the reason why Nintex bought K2. It can clearly handle any complex process or scenario. K2 is almost low-code. It is a no-code or low-code solution. You don't have to read a whole lot of code. It is pretty much GUI based. Their support is also excellent. The biggest advantage of K2 is SmartObjects, which allow you to separate the data from the application. It is a standalone application that allows you to build a data source from different places, which a lot of other applications also do. It is called SmartObjects technology, which is pretty powerful. If I have data from different applications, such as JD and ServiceNow, I can just create a SmartObject based on a data source and use it. I have some forms that have six, seven, or eight applications in a single form with data from different places.""Out of box connectivity with UiPath.""Easily maintained and customization is quite simple.""The most valuable features of this solution are that it's no code, it's very flexible, and it's easy to design.""The solution offers very good integration capabilities. We've never had issues integrating it without solutions.""The integration capabilities have been very useful."

Cons
"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.""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.""Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved.""As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month.""In the future, I would definitely like to see the process administration (migration, audit, tracking) and process evaluation (optimize) features added to the community edition.""The only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform.""Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities.""I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java."

"Bizagi allows for automation, but it's very complicated.""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.""When you start working with information modeling, et cetera, here is no really good solution for the data modeling and information modeling.""The solution needs to make it easier to use RPA products on it. They may need an RPA specific interface. It would be better than having to make an RPA tool to use for viewing. Most of our work is about making RPA tools with the Bizagi, not using Bizagi itself.""I don't know if it's a problem with my operating system or a Bizagi problem, but many times I see that when I try to connect different activities, they show up as not connected.""I would like to see a facility for building a simple CRUD application. In Bizagi, you can use database modeling, diagrams, forms, etc., but in some circumstances I need CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) functionalities which are not there yet.""There could be more documentation.""The free version could be better. Some of the templates and all the functionalities aren't available in the free version. I've been trying to check some maps, for example, organizational maps or a model on organization hierarchy. Apparently, there seems to be no template. You have to create your own. I am not sure if there are templates, but I've not really seen any. I think that there's room for improvement."

"Currently, it's taking quite some time to deploy a package, it needs improvement""K2 is a workflow solution, and there is no RPA solution with K2. This is where K2 lacks a little bit. It is just a heavy workflow solution. It doesn't have a supplemental product like RPA. If you want to use RPA, you have to use Blue Prism, UIPath, or something else. If you use Nintex, it has an RPA solution. It is a form-based application, and they are doing everything electronically. The initial investment in K2 is heavy because it is a BPM software. It does not have a low cost because they charge you the same for one workflow or 100 workflows.""Difficult to include external partners with the solution deployed on-premise.""The licensing needs to be improved. Right now, we find it's getting more expensive to use the product.""The Workflow Designer needs improvement.""Heavy, cumbersome and inflexible."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost.""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.""Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees.""We're using the open-source version for now.""We have an annual subscription to this solution.""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."

"From what I know of the market, I think Bizagi is a cheap solution for process engineering. Out of the solutions I've tried, from cheapest to most expensive, would be Vizor, Bizagi, Signavio, and then Siemens. I used a version of Bizagi that my university provided for free, so I have never paid for a license.""The price could be lower.""It has a very high price. Many clients complain about the price for maintaining the application on Bizagi.""It is only necessary to pay for licenses when ready to deploy applications to production.""This solution would be expensive for a company that has a lot of users.""I used to be very pleased with the pricing. Now, it's a bit more complicated. I don't remember exactly, however, it might be $10 a month per user.""Make sure that your requirements are explicitly defined from the outset. This will help you choose the right setup and licensing for your needs.""The Bizagi modeler can be downloaded free of charge."

More Bizagi Pricing and Cost Advice »

"There is an initial fee when purchasing and a fee for maintenance afterward.""The initial investment in K2 is heavy. Currently, the expenditure is $28,000 for a year. After we go to the cloud, it is going to be per seat and probably cheaper. Currently, there are unlimited users."
