"It's a general solution that you can adapt to your own needs and is simple to use. We like that it can be integrated with everything in the AWS suite, and that the creation of the pipeline can be done using the graphical user interface."
"The solution is good for data models."
"It's user friendly, much better than most tools I have seen."
"We like the idea of working with Cawemo because it enables us to keep on working, remotely or not. It allows us to collaborate between areas. It's easy to model and easy to use"
"Overall, the solution has been very solid."
"The most valuable feature is that, with a visual system, you can try to have a process client before beginning the programming for the application."
"We can easily define and deploy business processes. Camunda provides the tools that allow business people to design business processes. We don't have to have developers for it. It is so easy to use that our business people can go into the tool and model their business processes. We get time to do other things than just designing business processes."
"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."
"Provides an easy way to integrate with the architectural environment."
"Setup took about one day. We had some errors to understand in the beginning, but now everything is working good."

"I would like to see better pricing."
"The documentation could use improvement."
"Community support is basically what I'm looking for. Other than that, it is okay for now."
"I think that Camunda can try to do better when it comes to solving the complexities of all the products in its software stack."
"Initial setup can be quite complex."
"In the future, I would like to see better transactional integrity."
"When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly."
AWS Step Functions lets you coordinate multiple AWS services into serverless workflows so you can build and update apps quickly. Using Step Functions, you can design and run workflows that stitch together services such as AWS Lambda and Amazon ECS into feature-rich applications. Workflows are made up of a series of steps, with the output of one step acting as input into the next. Application development is simpler and more intuitive using Step Functions, because it translates your workflow into a state machine diagram that is easy to understand, easy to explain to others, and easy to change. You can monitor each step of execution as it happens, which means you can identify and fix problems quickly. Step Functions automatically triggers and tracks each step, and retries when there are errors, so your application executes in order and as expected.
