Cons
"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."

"There used to be that feature in ArchiMate Modeling of Enterprise Architect called inherited relationships. Now it's gone.""I think that collaboration can be better.""It would be nice to have it supported on the Linux operating system.""Using EA involves a steep learning curve if you want to understand its capabilities and functionality.""This solution should have better ease of use for the uninitiated.""Not visually appealing.""The documentation needs a bit of improvement. What I find is that when I'm trying to do something specific for some part of a project, in terms of documentation, it's kind of hard to get at figuring out if you don't use it all the time.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"In terms of cost, Sparx EA is probably one of the cheapest tools I have ever used.""The licensing is not as expensive as some of the other data modeling tools such as Erwin."
