Quotes From Members

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

Pros
The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.I've found the active community most valuable but it also provides you with a lot of other features.We are documenting all of the processors and VPN. Then we are sharing it with our business users.For an internal project, this is a solution that you can install and have up and running quite quickly.We have a lot of users, almost 1,800, and we needed something affordable, stable and something that could be used by a large financial company. This solution truly fit the bill.We have the ability to modify the product if we need to, and that comes in handy whenever we need to add new functionality and features.It is quite easy to build a simple process without any knowledge of programming.The flexibility characteristic in a BPMS, through BPMN and DMN, is undoubtedly the most interesting feature for our business.

Cons
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 would say that Camunda should actually focus on small cases as well. There's a lot of space out there, for small businesses. If they can, they should cater to them.When you search for Camunda BPM resources or books on how to utilize Camunda BPM, it is lacking. When it comes to Alfresco, there are thousands of resources that can help you to utilize within AWS and its Group Services. I would like to see the usage of Camunda BPM on Amazon Web Services be improved.The GUI needs to be improved, with more configuration options.If Camunda could develop something that creates user forms that would be a great feature to have. They also need to improve the UI.Like all BPM tools, they're very bad with proprietary UIs. In general, anyone who uses BPM tools should not expect to use their proprietary UI.Customization and tech stack could be up-to-date.I think it would be important to internationalize the Cockpit and the Admin as well as with the Tasklist.

It is very flexible because you can design your own main forms, but if there were some templates according to your market, it would be more useful for a new customer. That would make K2 more user friendly and easier to use.I would also like to see the BPM features from Pega implemented, that have to do with the implementation of AI, and the robotics.
