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 scheduling.""Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model.""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.""The Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it.""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.""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.""It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products."

"Easily maintained and customization is quite simple.""The integration capabilities have been very useful.""The workflow engine of K2 is its main strength. Its workflow engine is probably one of the best, and that's the reason why Nintex bought K2. It can clearly handle any complex process or scenario. K2 is almost low-code. It is a no-code or low-code solution. You don't have to read a whole lot of code. It is pretty much GUI based. Their support is also excellent. The biggest advantage of K2 is SmartObjects, which allow you to separate the data from the application. It is a standalone application that allows you to build a data source from different places, which a lot of other applications also do. It is called SmartObjects technology, which is pretty powerful. If I have data from different applications, such as JD and ServiceNow, I can just create a SmartObject based on a data source and use it. I have some forms that have six, seven, or eight applications in a single form with data from different places.""Out of box connectivity with UiPath.""The most valuable features of this solution are that it's no code, it's very flexible, and it's easy to design.""The solution offers very good integration capabilities. We've never had issues integrating it without solutions."

"In terms of its most valuable features, this solution, in general, will provide all you need and it's very convenient to use. We can share our details to collaborative platforms. We can give access to users. It's pretty flexible.""The fact that you can see and create something that fits your business is the most valuable thing in this platform. It is a customizable product, so it fits your needs."

Cons
"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.""As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month.""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 initial setup can be complex for business users.""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.""I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java.""Documentation can be improved."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"The licensing needs to be improved. Right now, we find it's getting more expensive to use the product.""Currently, it's taking quite some time to deploy a package, it needs improvement""Difficult to include external partners with the solution deployed on-premise.""Heavy, cumbersome and inflexible.""The Workflow Designer needs improvement.""K2 is a workflow solution, and there is no RPA solution with K2. This is where K2 lacks a little bit. It is just a heavy workflow solution. It doesn't have a supplemental product like RPA. If you want to use RPA, you have to use Blue Prism, UIPath, or something else. If you use Nintex, it has an RPA solution. It is a form-based application, and they are doing everything electronically. The initial investment in K2 is heavy because it is a BPM software. It does not have a low cost because they charge you the same for one workflow or 100 workflows."

"Its licensing needs to be simplified. Currently, its licensing is very complex. It contains a number of pieces, and you have to be an expert in reading all the conditions in the license. They should simplify the licensing and make it easier to understand. It would make a customer's life easier.""They are not going for any add-ons right now. It's the same version we are still using and there is no plan of upgrading and/or creating any add-ons at all."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees.""We're using the open-source version for now.""Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year.""We pay for the license of this solution annually.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost.""I use the open-source free version."

More Camunda Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"There is an initial fee when purchasing and a fee for maintenance afterward.""The initial investment in K2 is heavy. Currently, the expenditure is $28,000 for a year. After we go to the cloud, it is going to be per seat and probably cheaper. Currently, there are unlimited users."

"Its price is reasonable, but its licensing is very complex. This platform contains a number of pieces, and you have to be an expert in reading all the conditions in the license. They should simplify its licensing."
