Component reusability saves us development time, but the learning curve is too steep

What is our primary use case?

We use Camunda for the automation of the workflow and business process designer. We use the module cockpit and the workflow engine to orchestrate the process. We are a consulting company and we're not doing this for internal purposes. We mostly do this for projects, and these projects are for our clients. The environment where we work is very dynamic and is changing a lot. So based on the circumstances, we mostly work on the delivery parts, as in project deliveries. At the beginning of the year, we have a clear scope, clear targets, but down the road, we face a lot of challenges where we face… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The best feature is the automation."
  • "The only drawback is the time that it takes to have a complete set of workflows implemented on the Camunda platform."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering Camunda BPM is that they implementing a PoC first. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Offers the ability to create a case file identification

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is completely banking driven. We select the account to open, determine the complimenting and storage core, cooperate on their calls, do analysis for the core customer, uphold compliance policy and anti money laundering payments, and all the functions we define in the process. Currently, we are using it on-premises with a roadmap for into the cloud. We call that the private cloud, because this is a bank space so we are not going to the public cloud due to regulations and compliance policy.

Pros and Cons

  • "It provides a solution for integration orchestration. This solution is for any organization in the banking, telecommunications, healthcare, manufacturing, and all domains and industries."
  • "The initial setup is actually a really complicated process."

What other advice do I have?

IBM Business Automation Workflow is a good tool provided you can use it cross-platform where there are a lot of features. Another good thing, which other products, like Pega and Oracle don't have, is that it is a very optimizing solution providing the IBM BPM process orchestration. On a scale of one to ten, I would give IBM Business Automation Workflow a nine. Since I have been working with multiple vendors on multiple projects in the billion dollar project range, I see that it works for end-to-end functionality. It provides a solution for integration orchestration. This solution is for any…

Offers flexible local integration that we have used extensively to integrate with our Legacy system

What is our primary use case?

We use Appian for client on-boarding, anything onboard related, really: loading institutional clients, tracking that information in a single reporter, doing the follow-up, creating the plan parables for them, and developing for them. In my organization, there are about 150 users who are currently using Appian on a daily basis. We use Appian very extensively. Every day, there are more than 100 unique logins to the system.

Pros and Cons

  • "Appian also has very flexible local integration."
  • "They should provide more flexibility so designers can create a more picture perfect device."

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend Appian. It has come a long way and it's a good product. It's entering into the area of a local application development platform. Appian is continuously making product updates every quarter. I would give Appian a rating of nine out of ten.

A good integration layer and responsive support

What is our primary use case?

We are implementors. We advise our clients on building applications and doing innovation. We have a strong belief that no-coding is the future. Betty Blocks is a Dutch no-code platform provider, with a similar background to Mendix, and OutSystems. In our view, they are very promising because they really go to the no-coding promise, which basically means that a business user could use the platform to build its own applications. Betty Blocks is taking this concept one step further than Mendix and OutSystems.

Pros and Cons

    • "I would like to see full integration with AI."
    • "In many cases, they make choices where flexibility is a little bit degraded, but if you leave everything open and the flexibility is great then the usability is a little bit less."

    What other advice do I have?

    I can recommend this solution to other users. I would rate Betty Blocks an eight out of ten.
