Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"For an internal project, this is a solution that you can install and have up and running quite quickly.""We are documenting all of the processors and VPN. Then we are sharing it with our business users.""I've found the active community most valuable but it also provides you with a lot of other features.""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."

"The most valuable features are case management and integration services.""While Pega technical support is okay, it also depends on the issues you need help with and who your contact is with Pega.""Powerful, full-featured business process management with excellent support""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."

Cons
"The GUI needs to be improved, with more configuration options.""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.""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.""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."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"The unit testing needs to improve, as well as the user interface.""What should be included is some UI features and maybe some integrations. This includes documentation on how the UI works.""Lack of stronger cloud support is somewhat inconvenient for users and implementation.""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."

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 licensing fees are based on the number of users.""May be somewhat more expensive than other solutions initially, but should have enhanced return on investment.""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."
