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."

"The Signavio tool is very easy to use and it is one of the reasons why I like it.""The most valuable features of this solution are the portal for spreading it over the organization, the usability, and the workflow generator in the background.""The most valuable feature for me is usability.""The feature that I like the most is the collaboration hub, where every user or every employee can see the process in the overview.""I like the collaboration and the real-time aspects of it.""The interface is very intuitive and includes a drag-and-drop function.""I have done a lot of modeling over quite a number of years, and I think that the modeling capabilities in Signavio are state of the art.""The collaboration hub, which helps us in terms of being able to communicate with our customers, brings everybody into the tool and close to the process, allowing them to comment and to implement their own processes."

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."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"The UI of the solution is not good. They should work to update the solution and make it better and fresher.""The setup and installation process could be made easier.""In terms of improvement, it could be less complex.""Sometimes, we feel like we are not getting the full features of the content management capabilities.""The initial setup is actually a really complicated process.""I feel that the features are not user-friendly."

More IBM Business Automation Workflow Cons »

"I find it difficult to figure out how I can better align this solution with my KPIs.""It is sometimes difficult to find the match between what is possible and what is wanted, or what is helpful with the product, so better documentation may assist in this regard.""If you're going to use the tool the way I'm using it, which is to work with businesses and capture what they're thinking, it would be helpful to be able to insert other objects onto a diagram.""Being able to integrate the Workflow Accelerator with more products would be good.""There could be something more on the reporting side of it for the processes you have captured or processes that might be work in progress to see where to target your effort because you don't always have lots of resources to spare""There are a few bugs when you use the Microsoft Surface Hub with the big screen.""For us, it would help a lot if this solution had floating licenses.""One of the most important points in Signavio that would be a great change would be the management of variants of the process."

It isn't easy to find clients with Camunda BPM licenses mainly because it's quite expensive."
