Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The EPC modeling is very detailed, the semantic check is helpful, and auto-layout simplifies the formatting.""We also have relationships specified with our IT systems and our organizational chart. That makes it possible to analyze things from the systems point of view and regarding the organizational part of the company. It all comes together in one tool and that is what gives us the most value at the moment.""Aris BPA has a lot of tools that are more professional than Bizagi.""It brings transparency and 360-degree views of end-to-end processes.""The shared repository allows for cross-functional cooperation instead of doing things in a silo. You can operate cross-functionally and really work end-to-end, instead of dividing everything up on a functional basis.""ARIS BPA provides very good visibility and control of processes because we have a concurrent license system. As a result, every person in our company and group is able to look at the published processes.""The most valuable feature in the latest versions is the connect portal, where you can do very simple modeling using the web-based portal.""In general, the users really like it and they can get started using it very easily."

"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.""Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers.""We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation.""The headless nature of the Camunda Platform is something that has helped us to build our own logic and platforms on it.""The BPMN diagram is valuable. For our use case of transferring money from one account to another, the connections have to be done in the traditional financial ways. There are a lot of unexpected errors and a lot of instability with this kind of system, and we are using Camunda in order to have clear flows. With BPMN, I can show a flow to my business partner, and the business team can easily understand what's going on. The technical team can understand what the implementation is, and we can model different errors and the process for recovering from these errors.""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 feature is the scheduling.""The best feature is the automation."

Cons
"I use it strictly for developing the business process model. I don't use it for the actual automation. I do that with Vtenext. I have standardized on Vtenext, and I don't use ARIS BPM anymore. The Vtenext UI is just as good, and it is much more tightly coupled to the underlying object model. I can get more done in one session with Vtenext rather than first going to ARIS BPM, then importing, and having to edit it for tight coupling.""If you want to create new reports then you have to use JavaScript, or ARIS script as they call it, which is beyond the competencies of most people.""Simulation is one area that is a bit complex.""There is a lot of room for improvement. They need to increase the performance of the system flow. They need to support it more. ARIS Process Governance is still quite basic, and they are using an old BPM and process automation module.""I believe the solutions BPM tools are not very good and need improvements.""The model graphics can be exported in PDF, but the model is too small to read.""There are reports available in ARIS and you can modify them a bit if you want something more specific, but it's not that easy to adjust them and make modifications. It would be nice to have some kind of tool to do that, something that is more user-friendly for people who are not too technical, so that they could create reports the way they want them.""Its governance tool and integration with ESB and execution engine can be improved. Their partner support can also be improved."

More ARIS BPA Cons →

"The initial set up could be simplified, it's complex.""I would like to see better pricing.""An improvement would be to support Angular 2 instead of AngularJS, which is quite old.""They have a migration plugin that can be used to migrate from one BPM to another BPM. It is in the beta stage since last year. If they can make it available in the market, it would be great. We are going to have a couple of migration projects for migrating from IBM BPM to Camunda, and this plugin would be useful. I have already discussed this with them two weeks ago and asked them to look into this and add it as a feature. We are expecting this plugin to be available in the next version. This is the only requirement we have at present. They keep on coming up with different features, which is helping us a lot. Its latest release that came out last month was awesome.""The initial setup can be complex for business users.""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.""We have faced problems with the performance.""I have faced problems in bringing up the Cockpit in terms of GUI processes. I think that there is room for improvement in those areas."
