What is most valuable?

The solution is very easy to manage. It's great at saving time if you have a lot of appliances and you want to show a configuration of all of them at once. It's a great tool for managing your control… more »

How has it helped my organization?

It saves you a lot of work and time. With this solution, any person can manage all of the appliances at once.

What needs improvement?

Overall, the solution is quite good, for how I use it. The user interface could be a bit better. The compatibility with the Hyper-V from Microsoft for cloud deployments could be improved. You do need… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't really deal with pricing. That's more on the product manager. They handle product licensing. I don't have any idea how much the solution costs.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used to use Cisco. I really liked it. Now, I prefer F5. Both are excellent solutions. They're in the top tier for sure. Each one of them has its own functionality. Cisco has switches, routers, et… more »

What other advice do I have?

This solution is one of the finest in the industry. New users considering the solution need to understand that they need to have a solid background in networking and a few security verticals in order… more »

What is most valuable?

I have found that this solution's applications are very competitive when it comes to some other tools, and not every tool has some front end applications for end-users. So Camunda will start with a complete application, which is quite… more »

What needs improvement?

I would like to have a feature for audit logging and audit log management, and some history of use for the audit logs. It's not anything I need, but our clients often require these features and then we have to do it ourselves. I would also… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used IBM BPM and Activiti BPM but we switched to Camunda because of the pricing model. Camunda is much cheaper. We've also found that IBM BPM is not really stable, some applications are very complex and some project verdicts were not as… more »

What other advice do I have?

I feel that there is always room for improvement, so I rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When I compare it to other BPM tools, like IBM, it is great, open source, and free when you use the community version. We are also working on the enterprise version, so we are very satisfied.

What is most valuable?

It is well integrated with documents and document management from IBM. It's a data-driven solution that is very good. It is easy to set up workflows that notify the user depending on certain events.

What needs improvement?

This product is still attached to some things from the past, on the way that it was built, and there are some things that should be improved, but those who work with it know how to work around these difficulties. Once a workflow is launched then it stays static forever, which is a problem because if there is a change in the business then you cannot change the workflow. You either stop the process… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing Case Foundation is to keep the design as simple as possible because the workflows are very static. If you try to change it a lot, you will make it very complex and you will have problems. You should use and maintain business rules outside of the main workflow because if you have some rule that changes then the workflow stays the same, most of the time… more »
