Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible.""Overall, the solution has been very solid.""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 has an open BPM""I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine.""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.""The most valuable feature is the scheduling.""We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."

"I find process management and user interface designing the most valuable features.""The user interface is better than all of the open-source BPMs that I have tried.""One of the most valuable features is you can create without coding, it is a low code platform.""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."

More Bonita Pros »

"The initial setup is straightforward.""I love Visual Paradigm because it has many different types of diagrams. For any field of engineering, we can find a diagram.""The pricing model is attractive.""It is easy-to-use and it helps understand its data modeling structure through the intuitive user interface.""Some of the most valuable features of this process modeling tool are process simulation and process animation.""I like the structure. I can see the diagrams and everything I created.""The solution is very user-friendly. It's easy to just open it and start working."

Cons
"They have a migration plugin that can be used to migrate from one BPM to another BPM. It is in the beta stage since last year. If they can make it available in the market, it would be great. We are going to have a couple of migration projects for migrating from IBM BPM to Camunda, and this plugin would be useful. I have already discussed this with them two weeks ago and asked them to look into this and add it as a feature. We are expecting this plugin to be available in the next version. This is the only requirement we have at present. They keep on coming up with different features, which is helping us a lot. Its latest release that came out last month was awesome.""The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex.""I would like to see better pricing.""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 don't like the UI of the Camunda Platform, I have found the Signavio solution to be much better for me to create the process designs and execute them. Additionally, I have found the tools in the Camunda Platform are not compatible with some of my other tools. They should improve this in the future.""We have faced problems with the performance.""The only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform.""When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"The interface is advanced and quite good, but it could improve.""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 »

"It's still early for me to comment since I've only been using it for two months, but the responsiveness when diagramming needs to be improved.""The solution can be heavy on resource usage.""There are some connectivity issues that crop up rarely when used with SQL Server.""More flexibility when choosing the type of diagram would be nice.""The solution could be more compatible with other products in the future.""From time to time, we experience some troubles when we work as teams."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees.""Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year.""The open-source version of the product is free to use.""We have an annual subscription to this solution.""We're using the open-source version for now.""We pay for the license of this solution annually.""When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition.""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 »

"We are using the Community Version, which can be used free of charge.""The price of the solution is reasonable.""The price is fair for what we are using the solution for.""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."

More Bonita Pricing and Cost Advice »

"You can use Paradigm on a subscription basis and you can choose from different tiers of subscription.""The pricing of Visual Paradigm is very appropriate and affordable. There are no hidden costs involved.""You can move between the tiers from month to month so you are not restricted to one pricing model."
