Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We are using the BPMN engine of Camunda; we are not using the user interface. We are using just the engine, the back end of this. For us, it is working quite well.""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.""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.""Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers.""Overall, the solution has been very solid.""It has an open BPM""Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model.""The best feature is the automation."

"For me, what I find to be the most valuable is its simplicity and the association with Microsoft Office.""This solution is good at utilizing standards rules for connectivity.""It has a built-in capability to capture process owners and managers against processes along with other process governance roles.""The business process discovery is excellent. The diagram or blueprinting functionality of the solution are very good. It's quite easy. You can link the sub-processes and get a big overview of the whole process then.""Collaboration is most valuable. You can collaborate online with many people. People can comment, and you can comment back. It is just like a social network, and that, for me, is very good."

Cons
"We have faced problems with the performance.""They have a migration plugin that can be used to migrate from one BPM to another BPM. It is in the beta stage since last year. If they can make it available in the market, it would be great. We are going to have a couple of migration projects for migrating from IBM BPM to Camunda, and this plugin would be useful. I have already discussed this with them two weeks ago and asked them to look into this and add it as a feature. We are expecting this plugin to be available in the next version. This is the only requirement we have at present. They keep on coming up with different features, which is helping us a lot. Its latest release that came out last month was awesome.""The initial setup can be complex for business users.""The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex.""As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month.""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.""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.""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."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"The user interface is quite easy at first but process analysts soon run into roadblocks of limited functionality, which is disappointing.""It is BPMN-compliant but the tool needs to be more involved to get into a completely 2.0 oriented tool. It has a few things but it's not the complete BPMN model.""There should be an option to import from and export to Microsoft Visio. Being able to move files back and forth between Blueworks Live and Visio would be good.""The font size is really, really small and it's really not useful to print out process models because you cannot read what's written in different boxes. This makes it necessary for people to have access to the tool. We view licenses to see how the printing or output is. It's not very good.""Spaces are not well organized; space controls are lacking."

"The price could be more competitive.""It would be nice to have a Spanish user interface available to us."

More iGrafx Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We pay for the license of this solution annually.""Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost.""When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition.""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.""We're using the open-source version for now.""Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."

"They have a free subscription model that gives a lot of power to the users.""Making it less expensive would be good."
