Researched IBM BPM but chose Camunda BPM: Good automation and it is simple to build a business process
It helps improve your process through continual measurement and have a online monitoring of the performance
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products.
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.
The solution is easily compatible with HTML forms and HTML language programming and that is the most significant part.
When I compare it with other BPM tools, like IBM, it is great, open source, and free when you use the community version.
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.
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.
The new reporting and the new dashboard features are really good.
It is very stable. There is no downtime.
This solution has streamlined our operation and improved the TAT of sales, operations, and underwriters.
This solution is very stable.
It excels at analytics. It provides visibility across all activities of a company's processes and performance.
It helps improve your process through continual measurement.
It helps maintain, and in many instances, lower costs, as well as to maintain those costs, keeping them stable.
It continues to keep up with the changing needs of the business. That is the strong value proposition of BPM. It's not a one-time automation.
Provides the power to understand and automate processes.
Our customers use the solution as a workflow platform to manage their processes.
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.
Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance.
I would also like a very easy to use form builder.
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 like to see the forms engine available in the open-source version of this solution.
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 design of the interface, in general, could be improved. It could be a bit more user-friendly.
The setup and configuration is complex.
We care about technology and support because support is very important and a BPM is not easy to implement.
I would like to see a lot more case studies.
The user experience, while it has improved, should continue to improve.
The business would like to use the product with a lot less IT and equipment involvement.
Better integration with other products in the automation suite.
Also, we would like to see integration with artificial intelligence, machine learning-type of technical capabilities. Right now, there are a lot Watson libraries out there. Building those integrations more, out-of-the-box, from IBM would be a good direction.
I would like it more documentation during the design phase.
We would appreciate more user-friendly definitions of processes with a more user-friendly interface for documenting processes.
Pricing and Cost Advice
I use the open-source free version.
Camunda is much cheaper.
We are using the open-source version of this solution.
It is less cost-prohibitive than other solutions on the market. This solution was in our price range.
Information Not Available
It should provide more flexibility to connect with external systems, and there should be in-built services that can be used to integrate with other systems quickly.
The cloud and license of the subscription model for IBM BPM can be complex. There are a lot of alternatives to choose from.
It has a low cost to implement. You'll get your money back in the same year that you complete the project.
Our customers do see ROI. They'll identify some particularly painful or uncoordinated processes to start with, then build out from there, picking off low hanging fruit.
We chose to purchase IBM BPM because it was bundled with the actual RPA program/solution that we decided to purchase. We decided to use Automation Anywhere tool (RPA), and it is was bundled with IBM BPM.
