We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is good for data models."
"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."
"The Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it."
"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."
"Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers."
"The flexibility is great."
"The best feature is the automation."
"I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine."
"Its availability is very good."
"I find the IT portfolio management very valuable and helpful."
"This is a complete package with all of the functionality that we need."
"The solution is scalable. If a company needs to expand it, it's completely possible to do so."
"The most valuable feature is that the software controls everything from a single management window."
"Every module sets up the same information in a unique repository."
"Some of the most valuable features of this process modeling tool are process simulation and process animation."
"The pricing model is attractive."
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"I love Visual Paradigm because it has many different types of diagrams. For any field of engineering, we can find a diagram."
"The solution is very user-friendly. It's easy to just open it and start working."
"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."
"The initial setup can be complex for business users."
"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 set up could be simplified, it's complex."
"We have faced problems with the performance."
"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."
"Documentation can be improved."
"Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities."
"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 features are limited. I'm hoping in the future the solution will be bigger and include more items. Right now, overall, it needs more."
"Lacking more out of the box integrations."
"I would like to see more regular updates released."
"Better documentation and training would be helpful."
"The solution is quite expensive."
"Scalability can be a problem sometimes."
"More flexibility when choosing the type of diagram would be nice."
"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."
"The solution could be more compatible with other products in the future."
"From time to time, we experience some troubles when we work as teams."
"The solution can be heavy on resource usage."
"There are some connectivity issues that crop up rarely when used with SQL Server."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"We're using the open-source version for now."
"Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."
"When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
"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."
"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."
"We have an annual subscription to this solution."
"We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"It is very expensive."
"You can move between the tiers from month to month so you are not restricted to one pricing model."
"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."
