We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design."
"We are using the BPMN engine of Camunda; we are not using the user interface. We are using just the engine, the back end of this. For us, it is working quite well."
"It is open-source. It supports microservice orchestration. This is what we are really interested in. We can customize our products depending on the use cases."
"It has an open BPM"
"The Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it."
"We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."
"Overall, the solution has been very solid."
"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."
"The user interface is better than all of the open-source BPMs that I have tried."
"I find process management and user interface designing the most valuable features."
"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."
"What I like most is the seamlessness of the workflow capabilities."
"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."
"Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities."
"We have faced problems with the performance."
"Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved."
"I would like to see better pricing."
"As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month."
"In the future, I would definitely like to see the process administration (migration, audit, tracking) and process evaluation (optimize) features added to the community edition."
"The user interface needs some polishing because it is too technical for end-users to use it."
"The interface is advanced and quite good, but it could improve."
"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."
"I have run into a lot of problems because there is not enough documentation."
"There could be an improvement in IoT connectivity."
"This solution only supports basic text, but we would like to be able to insert components such as rich text, graphs, charts, pictures, and other objects."
"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."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"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."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"The price of the solution is reasonable."
"The price is fair for what we are using the solution for."
"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."
