We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The speed and execution of DMN was a big selling point for us. It's very good at conducting business processes that are easily modeled and presented in a way that's easy to understand."
"It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products."
"It has an open BPM"
"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."
"Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible."
"The best feature is the automation."
"The most valuable feature is the scheduling."
"Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model."
"Newgen will structure the system based on all the requirements of the business. We can design the forms as complex forms or make our own versions to fix what's wrong."
"The Signavio tool is very easy to use and it is one of the reasons why I like it."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the portal for spreading it over the organization, the usability, and the workflow generator in the background."
"The most valuable feature for me is usability."
"The feature that I like the most is the collaboration hub, where every user or every employee can see the process in the overview."
"I like the collaboration and the real-time aspects of it."
"The interface is very intuitive and includes a drag-and-drop function."
"I have done a lot of modeling over quite a number of years, and I think that the modeling capabilities in Signavio are state of the art."
"The collaboration hub, which helps us in terms of being able to communicate with our customers, brings everybody into the tool and close to the process, allowing them to comment and to implement their own processes."
"Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance."
"If there were some industry templates it would have helped significantly, because it is similar to a process map for a domain. That is what we are currently creating, a domain-relevant process map."
"Lacking in forms visualization."
"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 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 only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform."
"The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex."
"Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved."
"In terms of stability, like every product it has its issues."
"I find it difficult to figure out how I can better align this solution with my KPIs."
"It is sometimes difficult to find the match between what is possible and what is wanted, or what is helpful with the product, so better documentation may assist in this regard."
"If you're going to use the tool the way I'm using it, which is to work with businesses and capture what they're thinking, it would be helpful to be able to insert other objects onto a diagram."
"Being able to integrate the Workflow Accelerator with more products would be good."
"There could be something more on the reporting side of it for the processes you have captured or processes that might be work in progress to see where to target your effort because you don't always have lots of resources to spare"
"There are a few bugs when you use the Microsoft Surface Hub with the big screen."
"For us, it would help a lot if this solution had floating licenses."
"One of the most important points in Signavio that would be a great change would be the management of variants of the process."
"I use the open-source free version."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
"We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"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."
"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."
"My client purchased one editor license and the collaboration hub, which covers up to a hundred people."
"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."
"I think we're spending about $150,000 a year on licensing costs."
"SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees."
"This solution provides really great value for the money."
"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."
