Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.""Overall, the solution has been very solid.""Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers.""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.""I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite.""Camunda Platform is better than IBM BPM, and Azure. It is more elaborate.""Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible."

"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 user interface is pretty good.""In Bizagi, all of the features are valuable.""The most valuable feature is the organizational modeling capability.""Great mapping feature that's easy to use.""The solution's simulation capabilities are the most valuable aspects.""With the appropriate governance framework, properly trained business analysts can be empowered to design and build business solutions themselves."

More Bizagi Pros »

"The most valuable feature is the integrated data model, so if I change the name of an item, all models using that object are automatically updated.""This is a useful tool for IT people who need to design their solution architecture.""The Business Process Modeling or BPM part is the most valuable. Its ability to simulate scenarios is also very useful. It can also create descriptions of the workflows. It has a feature in which if you create some BPMN process, a workflow diagram, and the description inside, you can actually simulate the whole scenario, and you get the description. That's very handy.""Modeling is a part of my work, and it has a lot of standard modeling languages. It is quite wide, and a lot is possible in it. We are not programming it ourselves, but if you are into programming and developing software yourself, you can go further and do a lot with Sparx. You can work from the framework and go into the details. With this solution, you get a lot of value at a low cost. It is also quite intuitive in terms of use. I like the use of it.""There are a lot of features in Enterprise Architect. It allows us to take on a lot of tasks.""We have found the stability to be very reliable.""It's a stable and scalable solution. I like that it's similar to Rational Rose.""Sparx offers good flexibility."

Cons
"When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly.""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.""I would like to see better pricing.""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.""Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved.""If they could build some scripts or some configuration to get it up and running in a Docker environment, that would be good. I didn't find anything when on Docker, however, maybe they have something and I didn't see it yet.""The initial setup can be complex for business users.""Lacking in forms visualization."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"I would like to see more in terms of analytics and better reporting.""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.""The solution is a bit heavy on resources and has slowed down my computer.""For the small business, this is very bad because it is still fragmented. The licensing policy should be more flexible and small company oriented. In micro-small companies, there should only be one or two. That's not the problem. Maybe it is too flexible, there are so many pieces that you need to put together. When you have a small business, it can be a little complicated, not so easy.""Difficult to export in formats other than PDF.""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.""The open source version lacks the option to publish.""I'm not really satisfied with the reporting aspect."

More Bizagi Cons »

"I would like to see integration with Confluence or any other TRM, and the capability to integrate with the data storage, such as a repository similar to GitHub.""Their technical support is not good in India. I wrote to them because I had a question, but I never got an answer. So, I just left it behind.""I think the product is good. When I'm trying to do something specific for some part of project documentation, it's hard to get it figured out if you don't use it all the time. It's such a massive tool, it's hard to figure out how to dig in and get to the documentation where you have to be to get some idea of what to do. There are not a lot of examples that I'm aware of to be able to do that.""The UI is a little bit outdated. It should be more fresh and clean.""This solution has some limitations from a business perspective.""Because its easy to create diagrams one needs to be vigilant on the housekeeping of orphaned fragments - I have written my own scripts to do this, maybe they are available now.""Sparx can be a bit slow. If you are trying to design software architecture, sometimes we run into issues and need to refresh.""The user interface is not so good. It's not easy for someone to use it at first. The product takes some getting used to."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We pay for the license of this solution annually.""We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year.""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.""The open-source version of the product is free to use.""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."

More Camunda Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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 price could be lower.""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 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.""I'm trying the free unlimited version with unlimited use. But you have to pay to add some features.""The Bizagi modeler can be downloaded free of charge."

More Bizagi Pricing and Cost Advice »

"They have the price on their site for the enterprise version, and we do receive a small discount.""Its price is very good for the value that you get with it.""The licence has a costly upfront fee which gets you access. You have to pay an annual maintenance fee, which is less.""It is cheap.""There is a license for this solution. When comparing this solution to others it is priced well.""I use my own license. So, I just bought the professional version, which costs $800 or something like that. In the company where I am working, we have floating licenses. They are probably more expensive. Its licensing is affordable, but we are talking about a large organization, and there could be modelers or viewers of the models. We don't know how much that would cost us.""The licensing is not as expensive as some of the other data modeling tools such as Erwin.""It is very economical and low cost. You have to pay for a one-time license, and it is active forever."
