Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"One of the most valuable features is you can create without coding, it is a low code platform.""The user interface is better than all of the open-source BPMs that I have tried.""Flexible and drag-and-drop type of UI is very valuable. The integrations are also very good. You can build workflows very quickly, which is my favorite activity. By using the GUI, you can build the entire mechanism, notifications, and all this kind of stuff.""I find process management and user interface designing the most valuable features."

More Bonita Pros →

"I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite.""I love that Camunda is a very developer-friendly platform, and my customers have evaluated the pricing as reasonable.""The most valuable feature is the scheduling.""The modeler is useful for creating the flow. The way to access the data through their REST API is also valuable. This is what we're using right now.""The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable.""Ease of use and ability to streamline a process model.""There's this graphic that tells you how many lines or how many tickets are in each step. In that way, you know where you stand. I find this feature very valuable.""The most valuable features are that it's lightweight, can be embedded in existing Java code, and keeps track of the workflow state and the instances that we need."

Cons
"The interface is advanced and quite good, but it could improve.""There could be an improvement in IoT connectivity.""I should be able to park the tasks that are within a process in a kind of container, and dynamically, a super admin should be able to connect these processes. This kind of feature might be helpful.""I have run into a lot of problems because there is not enough documentation."

More Bonita Cons →

"The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex.""In the future, I would like to see better transactional integrity.""I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java.""I don't like the UI of the Camunda Platform, I have found the Signavio solution to be much better for me to create the process designs and execute them. Additionally, I have found the tools in the Camunda Platform are not compatible with some of my other tools. They should improve this in the future.""I think that Camunda can try to do better when it comes to solving the complexities of all the products in its software stack.""The user interface needs improvement. It should be more tailored to the end-user and offer a better user experience design over the user interface itself.""The migration strategy needs to be improved.""As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We are using the Community Version, which can be used free of charge."
  • "Licensing cost for the Enterprise edition comes out to be around 40,000 a year. There is also a Community edition, which is free.

Big companies go for the Enterprise edition, which comes with a lot of additional features such as a mobile app."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable."
  • "The price is fair for what we are using the solution for."
