We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine."
"The flexibility is great."
"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 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."
"Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model."
"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."
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite."
"We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."
"Every module sets up the same information in a unique repository."
"This is a complete package with all of the functionality that we need."
"I find the IT portfolio management very valuable and helpful."
"Its availability is very good."
"The most valuable feature is that the software controls everything from a single management window."
"The solution is scalable. If a company needs to expand it, it's completely possible to do so."
"It is possible to do the whole drafting process at the same time in Sagnavio so you don't have a double effort of writing it once, arranging it and entering it again."
"The formatting features are quite good because you can create very complex models, but you can easily clean them up so that they look very nice."
"This solution is innovative and simple to use."
"Process Manager supports end-to-end transformation. Students can better understand end-to-end activity and processes as well as how they are run. For teaching, it's process discovery, then modeling, and finally optimization and simulation, partly. Typically, we showcase some simulation of the processes, and this is where we finish. That is why we validate that it's properly designed, but also what are the outcomes of modeled processes. There are also options for discussion on process optimization."
"The GUI is very easy to use, where you can sit together with your colleagues, discuss the process, and during these discussions you can build up the model."
"It's easy and fast. It's very quick to work with process teams in terms of improving processes. You just have to send them a URL and to have a process in front of them. I don't use all of the possibilities we have in Signavio. This has made it easier for people to adopt, because when we scrambled the process team together and started a process of improvement, it improved their process. They are much more involved than they had been earlier, and they can also use Signavio to make smaller improvements in the process for themselves. There are many more interactions between the process teams and Signavio than in our previous solution, where you had to hire in a professional process modeler. It's been a great improvement."
"I like the collaboration and the real-time aspects of it."
"There are many valuable features, of course. I would say the main value of Signavio is to have your current process map in a way that is easy to read and derive optimization actions to make it leaner, faster, more user friendly, etc. Another great feature is the visualization, which is easy to see and read. How they map the process is also very user friendly, with drag-and-drop functionality. Also, it's a very self-explanatory, user-friendly solution."
"We have faced problems with the performance."
"Documentation can be improved."
"The migration strategy needs to be improved."
"The initial setup can be complex for business users."
"Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved."
"When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly."
"The user interface needs some polishing because it is too technical for end-users to use it."
"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."
"The solution is quite expensive."
"Scalability can be a problem sometimes."
"I would like to see more regular updates released."
"Lacking more out of the box integrations."
"The features are limited. I'm hoping in the future the solution will be bigger and include more items. Right now, overall, it needs more."
"Better documentation and training would be helpful."
"I think the biggest selling point that Signavio talks about is its collaborative aspect. However, there's still a lot more improvement in terms of what they can do, how they receive comments, address comments, whether they actually provide feedback, etc. There is still a little bit more improvement to be made on those areas."
"Signavio already offers a wonderful range of functions. If variant management and customer journeys are optimized, Signavio can definitely bask in the glory of BPM tools. We also see optimization potential in the management of licenses, e.g. no named users but rather floating licenses and integration into the company's active directory."
"I would like to have the option to select the color of items and subgroups in the glossary because right now it is fixed."
"The licensing model could be better."
"From what I have experienced when I worked with a process team, we would like to work with dummy process diagrams. Right now, I don't know if I would set up a process as a dummy, since it very often gets mixed up with diagrams in production. There are many process diagrams linked to the production environment. I would like to have some kind of sandbox to work with. That would be very good. I don't even know if they already have it, but I would certainly like that."
"Part of the product that I think can improve is document control. That's currently not even possible. To work with documents we have something of a workaround using SharePoint."
"The user administration, the user-group administration, and the license models need improvement."
"I would like to see more predictive analytics. The tool already has all the process maps, but it could offer a more proactive improvement offering. For example, they could put a little bit more machine learning behind it."
"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 use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"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."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"I use the open-source free version."
"Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."
"It is very expensive."
"SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees."
"This solution provides really great value for the money."
"I think that the price of the licenses is between $2,000 USD and $3,000 USD per license per year, plus the hub usage. I cannot remember the exact cost, but it is affordable."
"My client purchased one editor license and the collaboration hub, which covers up to a hundred people."
"I think we're spending about $150,000 a year on licensing costs."
"We are only able to use the free academic licenses because we have a financial constraint. We are not able to pay for commercial licenses to use this kind of tool."
