We performed a comparison between Camunda Platform and IBM Business Automation Workflow based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Business Process Management (BPM) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The solution is good for data models."
"The most valuable features are the management of internal processes, the ability to execute from design and the model for internal processes, the ability to make processes visible, and the ability to have information about the current state of each instance."
"The headless nature of the Camunda Platform is something that has helped us to build our own logic and platforms on it."
"Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design."
"Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers."
"The number of client implementations and cross-language capabilities to support multiple frameworks is very pluggable compared to Pega. It's also more portable."
"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."
"The ease with which I can define workflows is most valuable. The latest updates and flexibility that it provides around a task activity are interesting for me."
"This product is tightly integrated with the RPA automation process."
"IBM Business Automation Workflow is stable because the different infrastructure elements, such as the OS and middleware have been used for a long time."
"It's a flexible solution."
"IBM Business Automation Workflow is useful for helping us design custom user interfaces and processes we require."
"This is a low-code software where you can just drag and drop on the user interface. There are also a lot of quality integrations such as TMS."
"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."
"An improvement would be to support Angular 2 instead of AngularJS, which is quite old."
"While it's very scalable, it would be great if auto-scaling capabilities were added to it... one area that really could help out would be to have dynamic resizing of the cluster. Right now, you have to do capacity planning."
"The business model could be easier to understand."
"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."
"The migration strategy needs to be improved."
"The initial setup can be complex for business users."
"Community support is basically what I'm looking for. Other than that, it is okay for now."
"Requires a lot of customization code writing which could be reduced."
"The SCADA Systems are very sophisticated and have a hard time integrating with our older scales. The technical support in regards to the partner side needs some improvement."
"IBM Business Automation Workflow could improve the integration."
"IBM Business Automation Workflow can improve UI flexibility and integration. Additionally, the solutions from IBM have to provide a paperless solution, allowing for digital versions of documents."
"I feel that the features are not user-friendly."
