We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Overall, the solution has been very solid."
"It has an open BPM"
"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 best feature is the automation."
"Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible."
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite."
"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."
"We found the technical support to be helpful."
"Provides a valuable BPMN feature."
"The solution is very user-friendly. It's easy to just open it and start working."
"Some of the most valuable features of this process modeling tool are process simulation and process animation."
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"The pricing model is attractive."
"I like the structure. I can see the diagrams and everything I created."
"It is easy-to-use and it helps understand its data modeling structure through the intuitive user interface."
"I love Visual Paradigm because it has many different types of diagrams. For any field of engineering, we can find a diagram."
"Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance."
"The user interface needs some polishing because it is too technical for end-users to use it."
"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."
"I would like to see better pricing."
"The initial setup can be complex for business users."
"I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java."
"If they could build some scripts or some configuration to get it up and running in a Docker environment, that would be good. I didn't find anything when on Docker, however, maybe they have something and I didn't see it yet."
"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."
"It would be nice to have a Spanish user interface available to us."
"The price could be more competitive."
"The solution can be heavy on resource usage."
"More flexibility when choosing the type of diagram would be nice."
"The solution could be more compatible with other products in the future."
"It's still early for me to comment since I've only been using it for two months, but the responsiveness when diagramming needs to be improved."
"There are some connectivity issues that crop up rarely when used with SQL Server."
"From time to time, we experience some troubles when we work as teams."
"We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"I use the open-source free version."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."
"You can use Paradigm on a subscription basis and you can choose from different tiers of subscription."
"You can move between the tiers from month to month so you are not restricted to one pricing model."
"The pricing of Visual Paradigm is very appropriate and affordable. There are no hidden costs involved."
