We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"It has an open BPM"
"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."
"Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible."
"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."
"The approval process is simple."
"The most valuable feature is the organizational modeling capability."
"The solution is a very pragmatic tool. It's quite easy to use."
"I do a data-centric design, so for me, the data analysis and design tools are the most valuable features."
"The most valuable feature is the way you can extend it and customize it. With most modeling tools, you fit your modeling process to fit the tool. In PowerDesigner, you can make the tool fit the way you want to work."
"I like the property sheet capability and the user-defined attributes that you can set up."
"The most valuable feature is that it is a very fast reverse engineering process. It does a very expansive comparison."
"Very good repository features."
"It offers a lot of features in one solution. You would have to get multiple other products to bundle together all of the capabilities that you get in just this product."
"It's a great tool for documentation."
"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."
"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 solution could use some enhancements like adding connectors, improving forms and having a mobile app, but everything is an enhancement rather than a flaw."
"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."
"In terms of what needs improvement, the costs can be lowered."
"The technical support is not fast enough and should be improved."
"It would be helpful if there were glossary, catalog and governance tools. It would help make it a true end-to-end product."
"In the future, I would like to see data manipulation capability where you can actually write SQL queries and manipulate data from directly within the tool."
"Pricing for small consultancies needs improvement. They sustain prices to competing tools. The competing tools tend to do special offers. PowerDesigner SAP doesn't pay much attention to the pricing of it and there are no special offers."
"Checking-in models to the repository, especially when working remotely, is a slow process than can sometimes have problems with models being corrupted."
"In terms of improvement, the pricing is a bit high."
"UI could be improved by enabling simpler navigation."
"The solution is very, very expensive. It would be ideal if it was a more affordable product."
"Connectivity can be improved because it's not very good."
"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."
"I bought the software outright and do not pay a licensing fee."
"SAP PowerDesigner is cheaper than eriwin."
"The price of the solution is too expensive. When we asked for certain licenses in different countries it was unattainable."
