Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation.""The most valuable feature is the scheduling.""Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible.""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.""The solution is good for data models.""The Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it.""Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design.""I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine."

"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.""All in all, Signavio usability is excellent. Anyone can learn to use the tool quickly. This increases acceptance as employees are not facing a high learning curve. With the offered usability it is easy to model processes also live in workshops.""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.""The collaboration function in the project views is valuable because people can comment on the processes and we can respond.""This is one of the best solutions and it is easy to implement.""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.""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.""This functionality ("invite anyone for feedback") has substantially increased visibility over work-in-progress when it comes to process modelling and overall process management and it decreased the time spent on giving and receiving feedback through emails and through sharing screenshots/.ppt files/Visio files etc."

"It is easy-to-use and it helps understand its data modeling structure through the intuitive user interface.""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.""The pricing model is attractive.""I like the structure. I can see the diagrams and everything I created.""The initial setup is straightforward.""Some of the most valuable features of this process modeling tool are process simulation and process animation."

Cons
"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 only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform.""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.""When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly.""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.""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 user interface needs improvement. It should be more tailored to the end-user and offer a better user experience design over the user interface itself.""Lacking in forms visualization."

More Camunda Platform Cons »

"The reporting is too slow and there is a limit of 250 processes.""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.""The performance metrics appearing in the collaboration hub needs to be improved.""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.""It could be more flexible from a customization point of view, where the user is able to display only whatever he needs.""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.""There are some small graphical bugs, but they are addressed immediately by Signavio to their product development team.""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."

"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.""From time to time, we experience some troubles when we work as teams.""There are some connectivity issues that crop up rarely when used with SQL Server.""More flexibility when choosing the type of diagram would be nice.""The solution could be more compatible with other products in the future.""The solution can be heavy on resource usage."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""The open-source version of the product is free to use.""Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year.""We have an annual subscription to this solution.""We pay for the license of this solution annually.""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 use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."

More Camunda Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

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

"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.""You can move between the tiers from month to month so you are not restricted to one pricing model."
