Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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 number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.""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."

"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."

More Bizagi Pros »

"Putting details into the process flow and being able to link other objects into the diagrams are very helpful features.""It is easy to learn and implement.""I enjoy the fact that I can go into detail with Visio. In shared communications, I can inspect for any fault in my processes.""Visio has improved our organization through an essential collaboration with the other Microsoft applications like SharePoint and Excel. So basically in the earlier days, what used to happen, a majority of the organization captured all the as-is process, the time and motion data in the form of Excel and then they used to create process diagrams using other freeware applications. Collaboration allows easy and convenient sharing with other stakeholders, that is really helpful with Visio.""The Data Objects are hyperlinked to the Standard Operating Procedures, Letters, and Forms.""I like to use Visio because it gives me a quick view of the things I had to put in a model for a company. I don't use it as an interface, though.""It keeps track of its connections as you move things around.""The most valuable features are process mapping and identifying responsibilities."

Cons
"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.""The user interface needs improvement. It should be more tailored to the end-user and offer a better user experience design over the user interface itself.""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."

More Camunda BPM 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."

More Bizagi Cons »

"I would like to be able to present diagrams in multiple ways, such as a Swimlane diagram.""It does not integrate well with other solutions.""Transferring data was one of the issues that I expected Visio to have resolved. I use the older version.""The one particular thing which I would like to see improved is in comparison to other products in the market, and is still lacking in Visio, is publishing on a web application. For example, there is a freeware application business process modeling tool, Bizagi.""I would like to see included in the next release is the implementation of web publishing.""The Auto-Align has improved significantly from the previous release; however, it still jumbles the model if your process diagram has a fair degree of complexity.""Something that needs to improve, is the interface interaction with other tools.""System architecture could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Camunda BPM 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.""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."

More Bizagi Pricing and Cost Advice »

It is a one-time licensing fee.""The yearly cost is approximately $400 CAD ($300 USD).""There are some cheaper as well as free solutions.""The licensing process is actually a breeze.
