Hello community members, 

I'm working at a financial services company with 200+ employees and I'm currently exploring two Business Process Management Platforms (BPM) in order to use them with Java: K2 BPM and Camunda BPM

Can you assist me with their comparison (sharing the pros and cons of each)? 

Thanks!

If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering K2, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

Hi,

I have been tasked to reengineer all business processes. I need to know which tool will be the best fit for me to use with these criteria:

  • 3 to 5 Process designers
  • Common workspace
  • Affordable 

I need the tool to model processes first (1 year), then I will upgrade to business interactions, RPA, and cost efficiency calculations at the later stage. 

I appreciate your inputs.

Hi community,

Do you think Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Business Process Management (BPM) are complementary categories?  What is the relation between the two of them?

Or, possibly, in a long run, RPA is going to dominate and replace BPM? 

Share your thoughts!

Thanks
