Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Overall, the solution has been very solid.""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.""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""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.""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 simple to use. The user experience is very good.""The most valuable features are the workflow, the task list, and the modeler where we use VPN."

"The solution helped us automate several processes we used to do manually.""This solution is very easy to use and customize, using almost zero coding. It's built on SharePoint which many companies in our country have experience with. This made it easy to adapt the application in our environment.""I really like the visual representation. It actually looks like a flow chart, which is nicer than a SharePoint Designer workflow, which doesn't have that ability.""The SharePoint feature is a really good connection, there are many features that are good.""It has integration with BI and Analytics tools, and RPA toolsets as well.""It is very easy to create and deploy. I am very happy with how user-friendly Nintex Workflow is."

"If they could build some scripts or some configuration to get it up and running in a Docker environment, that would be good. I didn't find anything when on Docker, however, maybe they have something and I didn't see it yet.""In the future, I would like to see better transactional integrity.""The cockpit features of the Camunda Platform can be improved to make it a bit more user-friendly, in terms of providing a bit more user experience for non-technical users. There could be some additional documentation added.""Initial setup can be quite 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.""The initial setup can be complex for business users.""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."

"We cannot use the same solution on cloud.""We would like to have access to an on-premises solution. In our country, we have a relationship with Central Bank of Egypt, which do noes not allow cloud solutions to be used. They should offer an on-prem solution with a flexible price license.""We would like to design parallel workflows and long-running workflows, along with new features for connecting to cloud-based systems.""The solution is a bit too expensive. It could be cheaper.""The license pricing is too high currently for Nintex Workflow.""The interface could be better and more language support is needed in the development environment or in the solutions platform in general."
