We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite."
"I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine."
"We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."
"Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design."
"Overall, the solution has been very solid."
"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."
"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."
"Process management/Process governance is what we think Signavio is very good at."
"The benefit of this application is that I can immediately describe processes and form normative documents for these processes. For me, this is definitely a plus. Сurrently, I work in a company that is not involved in the structural alignment of business processes. They have huge gaps in this. Nothing is described and there are no norms. Therefore, the formation of regulatory documents, rules, and descriptions of processes, not only in graphic form, but also in documentary form is an absolute plus. I have not found this in other process programs."
"We could increase the transparency and speed for the new ERP introduction. The status and changes by the new system are now clear to everybody and it is a great tool to train the people."
"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."
"In my opinion, the most valuable feature is the editor and its ease of use, and when people are looking at it, they can make comments about changes that need to be made."
"As a business transformation suite, Signavio offers a number of integrated helpful tools. The Process Modeler helps with the conceptual work, but is directly integrated with the components of the Workflow Accelerator (Automation) and the Process Intelligence (Mining). This makes Signavio an indispensable service package."
"The collaboration hub is good because it allows us to share the models that we've captured and to get comments back, and we don't all have to be in the same room, it can be remote and over time."
"This is one of the best solutions and it is easy to implement."
"What I like about this solution is the way it identifies the process and the transformation from data to some analysis between appliances."
"The visualization part, showing the number of cases processed successfully after a process is executed, is the most valuable. It also showed how effective a bot is after production. This kind of analysis that we got from UiPath Process Mining was good."
"You can build flows with this product."
"The most valuable feature is the user interface, which makes it easy to use for tasks like configuring resources."
"The most valuable feature is the analysis of operational processes."
"So far, we are just testing it and seeking out use cases, however, so far, it's been an interesting solution to work with."
"Process mapping tool is most valuable tool."
"We find the solution to be really easy not just for development purposes, but also for its use and ability to be understood."
"Documentation can be improved."
"I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java."
"As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month."
"The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex."
"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."
"When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly."
"Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved."
"Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities."
"If you start from scratch then I think this product would be ideal, but if you already have something then it may or may not suit you."
"Typically, a business process management suite would cover the whole lifecycle, from discovery to optimization and operations. This is running on the process server and providing some kind of low-code environment for developing business solutions. I think the latter part is missing, where SAP Connector comes in. Specifically, the execution of processes is missing, where you would design forms to take orders. This is typically part of some development environment for the process server to run processes from out of the models."
"It could be more flexible from a customization point of view, where the user is able to display only whatever he needs."
"I would like to see the inclusion of some document management functionality so that we don't need to integrate with a second solution to accommodate this."
"Moreover, the functionality to show different process variations with "views" could be improved to allow more customization of these views. I believe this would increase the user experience and administrative efforts maintaining these process variations."
"The user management functionality in Process Manager is not as user friendly as the one in the Collaboration Hub."
"The reporting is too slow and there is a limit of 250 processes."
"The performance metrics appearing in the collaboration hub needs to be improved."
"Not everyone in the business can readily provide the kind of information that is to be put into process mining, which is an area that needs to be worked on."
"Instead of doing only UiPath bots, it should handle other bots as well. Then I can deploy automation anywhere on any other software. It should not be only UiPath. That's the future of it."
"It's quite an expensive solution."
"It would also be great to have UiPath Insights included in the free Orchestrator. The Insights module is currently only available for paid licenses. It would be great for developers to have it included in the free version, because then we could try it out."
"Has a very limited way of collecting process data."
"It is stable, but not the top of the curve. It can be improved, let's put it that way."
"In terms of what can be improved, what I've seen so far in most of the implementations is that the client's expectations towards the RPA solution and their road map for the solution are different. The road map should be very clear in terms of what should be done and why it has to be done."
"I used to be a trainer and an instructional designer. I think the training has to be more specific — it's a little scattered."
"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 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."
"Camunda has a free service as well as a commercial service. We are using the free service."
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
"We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
"We pay for the license of this solution annually."
"The open-source version of the product is free to use."
"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."
"Although Signavio is a feature-rich solution, it is expensive for companies who haven’t reached a certain maturity level in their process management initiatives."
"SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees."
"There is a standard licensing fee, which is charged for the products, but it is very module-driven and depends on your utilization or your team size. Compared to that of other providers, the cost is average or below average. So, from a pricing perspective, it's not very high."
"The price of the solution could be lower. However, Automation Anywhere is approximately $8,000, and when comparing these solutions, UiPath Process Mining is less expensive. The license for the solution is purchased annually."
"We are using the Community Version of UiPath and have only a single process automated."
"We pay yearly, and I believe a support fee is paid monthly."
"It is not an expensive product, although the price could be lower."
"The pricing for the product is high. You pay a licensing fee and an additional 20% for support and maintenance."
"The pricing of Process Mining is based on an annual subscription. The final cost per year depends on what clients are able to negotiate with their salesperson."
"It is very expensive."
