Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design.""The Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it.""Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model.""The most valuable feature is the scheduling.""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 modeler is useful for creating the flow. The way to access the data through their REST API is also valuable. This is what we're using right now.""Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers.""We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."

"The most valuable feature is that it's a central repository for everything, whether it's videos, documents, Excel sheets, etc.""The most valuable feature is the management.""Two things are excellent in Documentum. One is business process management. The other is its support for metadata."

"The workflow engine of K2 is its main strength. Its workflow engine is probably one of the best, and that's the reason why Nintex bought K2. It can clearly handle any complex process or scenario. K2 is almost low-code. It is a no-code or low-code solution. You don't have to read a whole lot of code. It is pretty much GUI based. Their support is also excellent. The biggest advantage of K2 is SmartObjects, which allow you to separate the data from the application. It is a standalone application that allows you to build a data source from different places, which a lot of other applications also do. It is called SmartObjects technology, which is pretty powerful. If I have data from different applications, such as JD and ServiceNow, I can just create a SmartObject based on a data source and use it. I have some forms that have six, seven, or eight applications in a single form with data from different places.""The most valuable features of this solution are that it's no code, it's very flexible, and it's easy to design.""Easily maintained and customization is quite simple.""The integration capabilities have been very useful.""Out of box connectivity with UiPath.""The solution offers very good integration capabilities. We've never had issues integrating it without solutions."

Cons
"We have faced problems with the performance.""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 migration strategy needs to be improved.""Lacking in forms visualization.""Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities.""The initial setup can be complex for business users.""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.""As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month."

"The vertical application could be improved.""In BPM could be better. Its GUI needs the ability to build more rules. This is a crucial feature. For example, OpenText has some products that allow you to control your checks, invoices, and so on. They have exciting approaches to converting pictures to text, but the tool for business process management isn't easy to use. The GIU is not so good.""They should develop something so that bugs don't happen in our project. We make changes manually and some bugs happen."

"The licensing needs to be improved. Right now, we find it's getting more expensive to use the product.""The Workflow Designer needs improvement.""Heavy, cumbersome and inflexible.""Difficult to include external partners with the solution deployed on-premise.""K2 is a workflow solution, and there is no RPA solution with K2. This is where K2 lacks a little bit. It is just a heavy workflow solution. It doesn't have a supplemental product like RPA. If you want to use RPA, you have to use Blue Prism, UIPath, or something else. If you use Nintex, it has an RPA solution. It is a form-based application, and they are doing everything electronically. The initial investment in K2 is heavy because it is a BPM software. It does not have a low cost because they charge you the same for one workflow or 100 workflows.""Currently, it's taking quite some time to deploy a package, it needs improvement"

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

Information Not Available
"There is an initial fee when purchasing and a fee for maintenance afterward.""The initial investment in K2 is heavy. Currently, the expenditure is $28,000 for a year. After we go to the cloud, it is going to be per seat and probably cheaper. Currently, there are unlimited users."
