Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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.""Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design.""I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite.""Camunda Platform is better than IBM BPM, and Azure. It is more elaborate.""The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.""Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible.""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.""Overall, the solution has been very solid."

"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.""The most valuable feature for me is the collaboration point of view, where everybody has a single view, or source of truth, and everybody sees the same thing. Everyone can comment, contribute, and discuss the processes itself, which makes it easier to funnel down the most value adding comments and make the relevant changes to the processes. This leads to the next best iteration or version of your process.""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.""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.""I love the collaboration function, especially the option to invite people who don't have any users on the licenses.""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.""This is one of the best solutions and it is easy to implement.""One of the most valuable features is ease of use which has really been a good thing to put into the business. People like tools that they can just pick up and use straight-away."

"Visio has allowed us to create good diagrams for our technical employees to consume. The solution provides templates, is straightforward, and has tools for the easy creation of diagrams.""It keeps track of its connections as you move things around.""I haven't needed to reach out to technical support the entire time I've used the product. It's very basic and very simple, and therefore I've never run into any issues I haven't been able to deal with personally.""Visio makes it easier than with other tools to do such tasks as changing things or coming up with one's own visual style for presentation purposes.""What I like about it is that the templates are easily findable and usable, and they are usually created for other software packages. It seems to be pretty much widely adopted in the industry.""The fact that you could program in VBA is most valuable.""Process modeling is a good feature.""I like the solution's ease of use and its the integration with different templates from a variety of manufacturers."

Cons
"I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java.""The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex.""We have faced problems with the performance.""Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities.""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.""Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved.""I don't like the UI of the Camunda Platform, I have found the Signavio solution to be much better for me to create the process designs and execute them. Additionally, I have found the tools in the Camunda Platform are not compatible with some of my other tools. They should improve this in the future.""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."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"I would like to see more integration with the process manager in terms of the workflow accelerator.""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.""The performance metrics appearing in the collaboration hub needs to be improved.""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.""The reporting is too slow and there is a limit of 250 processes.""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.""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."

"Visio's scalability could be improved. I had a license through my school and it would have been great to be able to collaborate with more people.""It is not flexible in terms of functions and modeling deliverables. When you speak of processes, the program has to describe the activities and the deliverables. You have to tell your robots how to deal with and input something, and you should have something more flexible from this point of view.""Visio could be improved by adding more features. If you look at draw.io, they have more features. Also, if you want to design something for the cloud, Microsoft Azure still isn't enabled, so you need to install the plugin. This prototype is easily available, though.""It thinks that it knows what you want to do, but it doesn't. It has a way of behaving that can be very frustrating from time to time. Either it moves things about because it thinks its placement should be at a certain place, or it's keeping track of things that you don't necessarily see, so it moves something elsewhere.""Lacks stencils for new technologies in the solution.""When you use a BPA solution you can open an end-to-end process in one window, go down, or go up between layers to different places. You should be able to see descriptions of the steps of the process.""The user interface could be more robust.""The application could be lighter or it could be faster with documents."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have an annual subscription to this solution.""We're using the open-source version for now.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""The open-source version of the product is free to use.""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.""When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition.""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."

"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.""This solution provides really great value for the money.""SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees."

More SAP Signavio Process Manager Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is a free solution for us. It is integrated with our pack. We are trying to use the solutions that we already have.""It's cheaper than other solutions.""I haven't looked at the prices lately. We have an older copy, and it was a couple of hundred dollars for this software. That's a huge expense.""We have an enterprise license. I'm not sure what the cost is.""The price is reasonable for individual use but for an organization, the costs is high.""Visio is about a $180 dollars to purchase. It is a one-time licensing fee.""You can purchase a corporate license for more users to use the solution. We have purchased a stand-alone license and which could be cheaper.""There is a licensing fee, but it is fairly priced."
