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 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."
"It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products."
"The free online Help and E-Learning is very strong."
"I like all of the features. I like that you can simulate the processes and add the time standard."
"The product has a comfortable GUI and a good environment for users."
"I find Bizagi so user friendly. I also think that its modeling abilities are great and it's easy to teach them to new users."
"The API is pretty straightforward."
"This solution is easy to use and it is a good tool for process modeling."
"The solution's simulation capabilities are the most valuable aspects."
"The most valuable feature is the simulation."
"It has helped us a lot, especially during the initial phase of a project where most of the things are done on paper."
"We were able to meet all of the requirements for functionality that were specified, and we did not experience challenges where we had to compromise on functionality."
"I really like the visual representation. It actually looks like a flow chart, which is nicer than a SharePoint Designer workflow, which doesn't have that ability."
"It has integration with BI and Analytics tools, and RPA toolsets as well."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"It is difficult to drive ROI on types of processes involving complex business rules."
"The performance could use improvement. We couldn't connect the processes to on one file. The performance is an issue for us."
"It needs some better notation functionality."
"I think that they could improve their update process. Some of the process mining techniques could be added to Bizagi. I think that they can improve their simulation abilities to include more elements of the BPMN."
"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 would like to see more in terms of analytics and better reporting."
"There could be more documentation."
"Bizagi needs a way to define categories such as process groups like the APQC framework, PCF, and handle the processes within it."
"We are currently facing a lot of issues with Nintex, and we are trying to move away from this solution."
"The security features for this solution need to be improved."
"Unfortunately, Nintex Workflow is not that stable. We are looking at shifting to another tool."
"The solution is a bit too expensive. It could be cheaper."
"We would like to design parallel workflows and long-running workflows, along with new features for connecting to cloud-based systems."
"We are using the open-source version of this solution."
"Camunda is much cheaper."
"I use the open-source free version."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"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 think that its price is reasonable."
"This solution would be expensive for a company that has a lot of users."
"The Bizagi modeler can be downloaded free of charge."
"We have no issues with the pricing."
"It is only necessary to pay for licenses when ready to deploy applications to production."
"It has a very high price. Many clients complain about the price for maintaining the application on Bizagi."
"Make sure that your requirements are explicitly defined from the outset. This will help you choose the right setup and licensing for your needs."
"It is expensive."
"The annual support costs are expensive."
"Comparatively, it's expensive."
"We pay on a yearly basis. It's my understanding that we pay approximately $11,000/year."
