Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"There's this graphic that tells you how many lines or how many tickets are in each step. In that way, you know where you stand. I find this feature very valuable.""Camunda Platform is better than IBM BPM, and Azure. It is more elaborate.""The best feature is the automation.""Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model.""The most valuable feature is the scheduling.""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 flexibility is great.""The solution is good for data models."

More Camunda Platform Pros »

"This is a flexible tool compared to some other solutions.""The solution has wide use within Microsoft products. The integration with Microsoft products, and, in particular, Microsoft Office, is great."

More iServer Pros »

"The initial setup is straightforward.""The pricing model is attractive.""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.""I like the structure. I can see the diagrams and everything I created.""Some of the most valuable features of this process modeling tool are process simulation and process animation.""The solution is very user-friendly. It's easy to just open it and start working."

Cons
"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.""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.""I would like to see better pricing.""Documentation can be improved.""When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly.""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.""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.""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 performance is slow, which is something that should be improved.""The migration tool needs to be included in the main package, and not as a separate license."

More iServer Cons »

"There are some connectivity issues that crop up rarely when used with SQL Server.""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.""More flexibility when choosing the type of diagram would be nice.""The solution can be heavy on resource usage.""From time to time, we experience some troubles when we work as teams.""The solution could be more compatible with other products in the future."

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

Information Not Available
"You can use Paradigm on a subscription basis and you can choose from different tiers of subscription.""The pricing of Visual Paradigm is very appropriate and affordable. There are no hidden costs involved.""You can move between the tiers from month to month so you are not restricted to one pricing model."
