Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""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."

"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.""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."

More Bonita Pros »

"The solution's most valuable feature is its quick setup. Nowhere else you can create a good-looking application this quick. It's a fairly robust system.""The interface is quite simple and easy to use, even for beginners.""The stability has been good. We haven't had any issues.""It is easy to use, easy to understand, easy to implement and easy to enhance and we can do it as a Cloud. Also it is very user friendly.""The most valuable feature is the situational layer cake.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is the various workflows.""The solution provides us with a very good dashboard.""The solution offers excellent workflows."

Cons
"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.""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."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"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.""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 pricing model needs to be improved. Right now, it's too expensive.""Pega currently is trying to add chatbots to their systems, and it's still quite immature. This part definitely needs to be improved.""The solution would benefit from more integration capabilities.""Sometimes when we are patching some data from the database, we are getting added as a timeout.""Compared to other BPM products, the interface is somewhat complex, so the usability could be improved.""We need more light retail BPM tools within the Pega system. However, Pega is mostly for big companies.""From a technical point of view, it would be helpful to have some advanced analytics to help with configuration. We have a lot of unwanted features and it would be good to configure it more appropriately so that we are using just exactly what we need.""There are some UX shortcomings within the solution. However, it's my understanding that they have addressed them and in the next three months they will come out with a new updated version. They will be moving away from HTML5."

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 Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The Community Edition comes free of charge.""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."

More Bonita Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price of this solution, including installation and configuration, is comparable to competing vendors.""The pricing is pretty good, compared to other similar products.""It's a user-based license where, as you scale the numbers of users, the price increases.""It is cost-effective for medium enterprises. It is cheaper than ServiceNow.""The solution could be less expensive according to my customers. However, I think the price of the solution is fair.""We mostly have a yearly license.""The price is a bit expensive."
