Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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 best feature is the automation.""The most valuable feature is the scheduling.""Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model."

More Camunda Platform Pros »

"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.""Flexible and drag-and-drop type of UI is very valuable. The integrations are also very good. You can build workflows very quickly, which is my favorite activity. By using the GUI, you can build the entire mechanism, notifications, and all this kind of stuff.""One of the most valuable features is you can create without coding, it is a low code platform."

"The UI capabilities of the solution are great. The speed of delivery is good.""This product is flexible in its ability to integrate processes and it can be extended and integrated with other software.""We like the feature in which we can trace back instances."

Cons
"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.""The only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform.""The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex.""Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"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.""I should be able to park the tasks that are within a process in a kind of container, and dynamically, a super admin should be able to connect these processes. This kind of feature might be helpful.""There could be an improvement in IoT connectivity."

More Bonita Cons »

"The solution lacks acceptable stability.""The user interface could be improved, and although integration opportunities are good, they could be improved further.""Sometimes there are tasks that failed without any reason."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition.""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."

More Camunda Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We are using the Community Version, which can be used free of charge.""Licensing cost for the Enterprise edition comes out to be around 40,000 a year. There is also a Community edition, which is free. Some customers can go for the Community edition, but some of them require the Enterprise edition. Big companies go for the Enterprise edition, which comes with a lot of additional features such as a mobile app.""The price of the solution is reasonable."
