Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I think that the positives of Camunda Platform are that our customers can start with the free version. I think it is the most important.""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.""Camunda Platform is better than IBM BPM, and Azure. It is more elaborate.""I like everything about the entire BPM that comes with the BPM suite.""Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design.""It is open-source. It supports microservice orchestration. This is what we are really interested in. We can customize our products depending on the use cases.""It has an open BPM""We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation."

"In my opinion, the most valuable feature is the editor and its ease of use, and when people are looking at it, they can make comments about changes that need to be made.""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.""The most valuable feature is probably the nature of it.""All in all, Signavio usability is excellent. Anyone can learn to use the tool quickly. This increases acceptance as employees are not facing a high learning curve. With the offered usability it is easy to model processes also live in workshops.""The collaboration function in the project views is valuable because people can comment on the processes and we can respond.""This is one of the best solutions and it is easy to implement.""Process management/Process governance is what we think Signavio is very good at.""The collaboration hub is good because it allows us to share the models that we've captured and to get comments back, and we don't all have to be in the same room, it can be remote and over time."

Cons
"When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly.""We have faced problems with the performance.""Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved.""Initial setup can be quite complex.""In terms of features, it meets my needs, but I would like Camunda to have an office in Brazil and provide training in Portuguese. They should provide regional support and training courses in Portuguese.""In the future, I would like to see better transactional integrity.""The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex.""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."

More Camunda Platform Cons →

"There are some small graphical bugs, but they are addressed immediately by Signavio to their product development team.""There is room for improvement in the reporting function. At the moment, for example, while it is possible to report on how many users you had in the last month, you can't use it to tell you how many users you had from the first week to the second week. This is really a drawback because when you have an activity to promote Signavio or BPI, it would be good to be able to measure how many people you had in the system.""It could be more flexible from a customization point of view, where the user is able to display only whatever he needs.""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.""The performance metrics appearing in the collaboration hub needs to be improved.""The reporting is too slow and there is a limit of 250 processes.""If you start from scratch then I think this product would be ideal, but if you already have something then it may or may not suit you.""The licensing model could be better."
