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

Pros
"It is a great product that is powerful in developing applications.""Compared to other products on the market, Bonita presents a pretty acceptable level of robustness.""I really enjoy using the workflow management.""This product is very easy-to-use and user-friendly.""The solution is stable. Even the older versions are stable.""The user interface is better than all of the open-source BPMs that I have tried."

More Bonita Pros »

"It enables decisions based upon processes that we do model, and ultimately move forward with.""It has the ability to document in different formats. It is not tied to a specific model. You can look at it from different angles and see the intuitive nature of it. It always generates a valid diagram. You cannot create something that is not BPMN compliant.""The solution is stable. All the refreshes run very well.""The business process discovery is excellent. The diagram or blueprinting functionality of the solution are very good. It's quite easy. You can link the sub-processes and get a big overview of the whole process then.""It has a built-in capability to capture process owners and managers against processes along with other process governance roles.""For me, what I find to be the most valuable is its simplicity and the association with Microsoft Office.""It's a powerful tool."

Cons
"There is a considerable learning curve.""It would be nice to have a wizard to help walk through the development process and create a backbone.""We are struggling a bit with integrations.""It is missing some important features that other products have.""The community edition has limited module functionality. If they could release some of the functionality that's available in the enterprise edition that would be helpful to those learning to use the solution.""I have run into a lot of problems because there is not enough documentation."

More Bonita Cons »

"We haven't yet been able to dabble in case management with Blueworks Live, as it is not yet offered with the product.""We would like the ability to add additional custom colors. We would like to color additional items to add notes to the blueprint.""The solution is a very basic discovery product so it doesn't have that much modeling capability. This can be improved.""The font size is really, really small and it's really not useful to print out process models because you cannot read what's written in different boxes. This makes it necessary for people to have access to the tool. We view licenses to see how the printing or output is. It's not very good.""The user interface is quite easy at first but process analysts soon run into roadblocks of limited functionality, which is disappointing.""It is BPMN-compliant but the tool needs to be more involved to get into a completely 2.0 oriented tool. It has a few things but it's not the complete BPMN model.""We don't like the user interface. It's complex. It's a powerful tool but it's complex to implement and requires a lot of manual work."
