Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The best feature is the automation.""The Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it.""We can share, discuss, and develop the model together — from a distance. It's really helped us during these times of isolation.""I think that the positives of Camunda Platform are that our customers can start with the free version. I think it is the most important.""Overall, the solution has been very solid.""The most valuable feature is the scheduling.""We are using the BPMN engine of Camunda; we are not using the user interface. We are using just the engine, the back end of this. For us, it is working quite well.""Provides an easy way to integrate with the architectural environment."

"I love Visual Paradigm because it has many different types of diagrams. For any field of engineering, we can find a diagram.""The most valuable feature of the Visual Paradigm that I use is process modeling. Additionally, the solution has a complete set of features.""Stable design software with multiple functions and features. It's simple to install and easy to use.""I like the structure. I can see the diagrams and everything I created.""Some of the most valuable features of this process modeling tool are process simulation and process animation.""The Visual Paradigm business process forms for designing we good. There was not a lot of configuration for the process diagram."

Cons
"The initial setup can be complex for business users.""An improvement would be to support Angular 2 instead of AngularJS, which is quite old.""I think that Camunda can try to do better when it comes to solving the complexities of all the products in its software stack.""I'm from the .NET world and I would like to use it, rather than Java.""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.""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.""As we experienced some difficulties in the beginning, deployment took almost a month."

More Camunda Platform Cons →

"More flexibility when choosing the type of diagram would be nice.""From time to time, we experience some troubles when we work as teams.""I was looking to generate code from the diagrams, but it was not totally clear how to do it.""It's still early for me to comment since I've only been using it for two months, but the responsiveness when diagramming needs to be improved.""Visual Paradigm could improve many aspects. The performance could be better because it can be low. When we have large and complicated models, it has a low speed and many bugs. Sometimes the solution stops and you have to restart Microsoft Windows on your PC. The larger database modeling cannot be done properly, I have to use another solution called SAP PowerDesigner.""Visual Paradigm is heavier and has more complexity than one of its competitors, e.g. Lucidchart. It could have been better if it was more simplified."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost of this solution is better than some competing products."
  • "Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year."
  • "We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost."
  • "I think Camunda BPM can improve their licensing costs. It isn't easy to find clients with Camunda BPM licenses mainly because it's quite expensive."
  • "When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition."
  • "There is an open-source version available, that in its core features (workflow and decision engine, modeler) is exactly the same as in the enterprise version."
  • "Generally, the price could be better, as well as the licensing fees."
  • "We pay for the license of this solution annually."
  • More Camunda Platform Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing of Visual Paradigm is very appropriate and affordable. There are no hidden costs involved."
  • "This product is fairly cheap, but if you want more complex features, e.g. integration with other products, it does require an additional cost."
  • "Visual Paradigm has two models available. One of them is the educational edition, and another is the business edition. For my personal usage, I use the educational version mostly. In a project, my customers have to purchase a license."
