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."

"Visio has improved our organization through an essential collaboration with the other Microsoft applications like SharePoint and Excel. So basically in the earlier days, what used to happen, a majority of the organization captured all the as-is process, the time and motion data in the form of Excel and then they used to create process diagrams using other freeware applications. Collaboration allows easy and convenient sharing with other stakeholders, that is really helpful with Visio.""The Data Objects are hyperlinked to the Standard Operating Procedures, Letters, and Forms.""I like to use Visio because it gives me a quick view of the things I had to put in a model for a company. I don't use it as an interface, though.""It keeps track of its connections as you move things around.""The most valuable features are process mapping and identifying responsibilities.""The most valuable feature is the set of diagramming tools.""A good designation feature.""The ability to visualize a workflow is certainly an advantage over just tracking a process in something like Excel."

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."

"The one particular thing which I would like to see improved is in comparison to other products in the market, and is still lacking in Visio, is publishing on a web application. For example, there is a freeware application business process modeling tool, Bizagi.""I would like to see included in the next release is the implementation of web publishing.""The Auto-Align has improved significantly from the previous release; however, it still jumbles the model if your process diagram has a fair degree of complexity.""Something that needs to improve, is the interface interaction with other tools.""System architecture could be improved.""The design and the look and feel, need to be improved.""The big downside to Visio is that it's very difficult to push the design through to Power Automate, to become a workflow that you can use.""Inventory feature 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 cost of the software is reasonably priced.""The price is reasonable for individual use but for an organization, the costs is high.""Our license for Visio is including with the Office 365 subscription.""Visio is about a $180 dollars to purchase. It is a one-time licensing fee.""The yearly cost is approximately $400 CAD ($300 USD).""There are some cheaper as well as free solutions.""The licensing process is actually a breeze. Simply buy the license and download it from Microsoft, enter the license key in Visio to activate the software, and you're done.""I don't have any issue with the pricing. It has a subscription-based model, and the subscription is done on a yearly basis. Of course, we need internal approvals in place."
