Q&A Highlights
Question: Why would you choose purchasing Camunda Platform over Bizagi?
Answer: I can't give you a good reason to skip over Bizagi. I have been using Bizagi for over 4 years and have gone from total low-code skeptic to low-code evangelist and a strong supporter of Bizagi. It's available for no cost to learn, develop, and test/pilot process automation (up to 20 users in test), and has very reasonable licensing options for production once you are ready to go live. It also is powerful and flexible. We're even using it to drive our docket and scheduling system for hearings (not something one things of doing with a "process automation" tool). Can't recommend Bizagi strongly enough.

Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Bizagi is really great for beginners because it's user-friendly and you can learn in it quickly, whereas other similar software are harder.""In Bizagi, all of the features are valuable.""The tool helps to improve business processes and have better KPIs. Also, it is easy to use. Our developers find it easy to learn.""This is a free solution that allows us to create quality visualizations for our company.""Process management is easy with Bizagi; validating processes and assigning resources is straightforward.""The ability to write our own code inside each activity is beneficial. Sometimes we need to create functionality that doesn't come out of the box, and this allows us to do that.""The product enables the users to automate the processes and provides a good user experience.""What I find most valuable is the flexibility, I find it very easy to use and very flexible for my purpose. I can use it without any particular problem, and it's very intuitive and easy to understand."

", Camunda can be a powerful tool to work with when used in an optimized and well-implemented manner.""Having knowledge of the BPM and monitoring process has proven to be very beneficial, as I am currently engaged in documenting processes for Clientele.""Camunda Platform is better than IBM BPM, and Azure. It is more elaborate.""The solution is good for data models.""Provides an easy way to integrate with the architectural environment.""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.""The headless nature of the Camunda Platform is something that has helped us to build our own logic and platforms on it.""It has been a stable solution so far since it meets our needs, including data modeling, which we need to do before we embark on analyzing and optimizing the business processes."

More Camunda Pros →

"The product must make automation easier.""The solution's interface could be a bit more user-friendly and I would like to see more integrations with other Office products, not just Office 365.""The tool is expensive and it should improve its pricing.""One part of the university has changed its regular desktops to Linux. This is a weak point because Bizagi doesn't run on Linux. I would like the opportunity to run the software inside of Linux.""I don't know if it's a problem with my operating system or a Bizagi problem, but many times I see that when I try to connect different activities, they show up as not connected.""Can be difficult for new users.""For very large projects and deployments, the automated "One Click" deployment wizard can sometimes take a long time to complete.""We have migrated to the cloud, but there are a lot of issues while integrating with the cloud. There are a lot of things to improve with the cloud and reporting. We were previously working with on-premise solutions, and we had access to a lot of things, but with the cloud, they changed a lot of functionalities. Some of the things we know, but with some of the things, we are having difficulties."

More Bizagi Cons →

"Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities.""There are a few things that I'm missing. For instance, the user interface creator, which I know other systems have, like Aurea or Lombardi, which are IBM solutions. The interface creator, including the data model creator or some module which would allow the users who are not programmers or business consultants and who are not technically skilled in database and Java programming, to create data models and user interfaces.""When trying to design rule tables the solutions graphical user interface could improve, it could be more user friendly.""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.""The documentation could use improvement.""Camunda could be improved by making it easier to modify a process. You can program it to follow a process, but it is difficult to modify the process when the application is in use. It could also be improved by making it easier to use the visual platform without needing to be informed on that. Sometimes, we programmers haven't used it in the past, and it's a bit difficult to learn it.""There should be a multi-tenant solution for the platform where it supports multiple organizations on one platform instead of having to spin up multiple clusters for each organization. There should be an easy way to integrate different departments into one platform without having to operate multiple platforms. The operations should be easier with the enterprise solution. It should not create more overhead for the operations people.""It is not difficult to change existing processes. The difficulty was in integration, for example, to call an external web API, and in the security capabilities, to use a vault for secrets. That was difficult."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I used to be very pleased with the pricing. Now, it's a bit more complicated. I don't remember exactly, however, it might be $10 a month per user."
  • "The price could be lower."
  • "From what I know of the market, I think Bizagi is a cheap solution for process engineering. Out of the solutions I've tried, from cheapest to most expensive, would be Vizor, Bizagi, Signavio, and then Siemens. I used a version of Bizagi that my university provided for free, so I have never paid for a license."
  • "This is a free solution."
  • "It is only necessary to pay for licenses when ready to deploy applications to production."
  • "The modeling part of the software is free. Most of the time, it is used for this purpose."
  • "The pricing model is good; I believe it's free for up to 20 users, and then they start charging. I hear the solution can get quite expensive, however."
  • "When we were working with the on-premises solution, the licenses were a little bit expensive because we had to buy one by one a package of a hundred licenses, whereas now, we are working with the cloud solution, and it has a different cost. It's a different business model because we pay the license for the developers, but the cost is by the environment, and we have unlimited licenses. The business model is different now, but the benefit ratio is good."
  • More Bizagi Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."
  • "We pay for the license of this solution annually."
  • "We're using the open-source version for now."
  • "We have an annual subscription to this solution."
  • "Camunda has a free service as well as a commercial service. We are using the free service."
  • "We are using the open-source version, free of charge. We didn't bother with the enterprise features."
  • "Cheaper licensing and resources than competitors"

    I have been using Camunda and BizAgi, amongst some others, during an evaluation.

    Both are easy to use. My business peers tended towards Camunda because we would get a native language speaking support (in German). (However, for very other reasons we did choose something very different).
