What needs improvement?

The product is good. When I'm trying to do something specific for a part of project documentation, it's hard to get it figured out if you don't use it all the time. It's such a massive tool, it's hard to figure out how to dig in and get to the documentation where you have to be to get some idea of what to do. There are not a lot of examples that I'm aware of to be able to do that. The user… more»

What other advice do I have?

The advice that I would give is that you should be willing and able to spend a lot of time outside regular working hours to get to know the tool because it's difficult to just pick it up and if you've got no mentors or tutorials that are so specific as to cover what you're trying to do, you have to dig it out. It's difficult. I would rate it a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Visual Paradigm is the first one I had about five years ago, I added Enterprise Architect. Enterprise Architect gives a good overview of the tool, but I find that it's difficult for me to take that example and apply it to what I'm trying to accomplish in documenting a design.

What is most valuable?

What I like best about Bizagi is that you can download the modeling software free of charge and start right away. The most valuable feature is the simulation.

What needs improvement?

The speed of this solution needs to be improved. Bizagi needs a way to define categories such as process groups like the APQC framework, PCF, and handle the processes within it. The APQC Institute specifies the PCF, which has requirements… more»

The Bizagi modeler can be downloaded free of charge.

I have worked with Visual Paradigm, Visio, and Camunda Modeler.
