Which is better, Bonita or Camunda BPM?


One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is Bonita vs Camunda BPM.

One user says about Bonita,"I have solved a lot of Banking problems using Bonita BPM, from customer hiring to credit evaluation"

Another user says about Camunda BPM, " We have the ability to modify the product if we need to, and that comes in handy whenever we need to add new functionality and features"

In your opinion, which is better and why?

Thanks!

i totally agree with reviewer842259, both are powerful to design processes, because both have similarities, but the interfaces designer of Bonita is higher of Camunda. But if you need some results about he processes performance, the dahsboards of Camunda, in my opinion are better than Bonita. And other feature to take in account is the tool to analyze the workflow instances, in my opinion Camunda has better information than Bonita

With Bonita you can design and deploy any business process, however for integration with specific providers you should buy a license for use connectors. With Camunda, you could customize the integration with some java development, deploy with Tomcat, and finally hold standard BPM design.

With Bonita you can not only develop the process but you can also design better interfaces. In Camunda, the user interfaces are very basic and do not allow much customization.

I don't know the Cumunda bpm, so I can't able to give the best
answer....sorry for this.

My Bonita experience:
We are using for networking domain and we will be talking OSB proxies/web services and based on conditions we will be moving into next step in BPM flow.

If you want to go through Bonita bpm, make sure that there won't much business logic in BPM flow because Bonita is not capable of handling that.

I would “throw a wider net” in your evaluation.

Even then, your needs are the most important and once we have these, we can provide a report on the different tools out there and how they “fit” with your needs.

Please let me know if my team can assist further.

I can’t tell you much about Bonita. I did an evaluation some time back and I don’t recall that it stood out. By far, I would recommend that you look
at Bizagi. Great BPMN modeling platform and also a platform to build automation. I’ve seen a stack up between Bizagi and Camunda and by far Bizagi is the superior platform.

Unfortunately, I can not really help you with that since we never implemented Bonita and during the solution RFP we decided to choose
WebMethod instead of Camunda.
The choice was only driven by the fact WebMethod was already integrated internally and we hade the knowledge.
But Camunda had the same functionalities and flexibility we saw in WebMethode.

Bonita BPM has error management and feature management. Meaning you can add new features or functions to the process or fix an error without taking the process down. You can do this in real-time. Bonita has an excellent UI/UX and on many occasions been praised as having one the easiest, best looking, easy to use UI/UX on both the development and production side. In addition, Bonita doesn't limit you. If you have already created apps, a portal, or UI and you want to use yours, you can. Of course, you can develop your own amazing UI/UX in Bonita but you aren't required to use it. You can leverage work you already put time and money into.

I agree with the above comment. Check out JobRouter. It is a very flexible BPM platform.

Since BPM is an art in itself, the option to modify the toolset is important. Hence my preference.

From my experience, neither. We have evaluated several options, and have chosen Bizagi. Yes, it is just making a dent into the US marketplace, but the TCO is favorable, and the speed at which we can model, develop, and deploy, as well as change, is remarkable.
