Has a massive footprint as far as what you can use it for in a project

Pros and Cons

  • "Scalability is not a problem. You can always increase the footprint of what the thing can do because it's so powerful."
  • "I think the product is good. When I'm trying to do something specific for some 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."

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.

Helped us to understand the complex processes and procedures to make problems transparent

What is our primary use case?

We use Signavio for group-wide digital transformation and standardization. As the largest private hospital group in Switzerland, we are dependent on keeping pace with digitalization and new business models. Signavio helps us to absorb the complexity and to create effective solutions. the planning and deployment of RPA is also supported and simplified. A deeper understanding of the correlations can be achieved with the consistent use of Signavio and process modeling. This is necessary to continuously offer customer-centered services and products in the existing VUCA world.

Pros and Cons

  • "As a business transformation suite, Signavio offers a number of integrated helpful tools. The Process Modeler helps with the conceptual work, but is directly integrated with the components of the Workflow Accelerator (Automation) and the Process Intelligence (Mining). This makes Signavio an indispensable service package."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

Just have fun with a great tool!

Easy and free to get started with modeling, but the performance should be improved

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the simulation."
  • "Bizagi needs a way to define categories such as process groups like the APQC framework, PCF, and handle the processes within it."

What other advice do I have?

I downloaded the latest modeler but I do not have access to the engine. Overall, I like this product and it would be great if it had more features to handle all of my processes and BPM diagrams. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
