In a broad perspective when you compare Camunda & Bonita they have the below features:
One of the things we like best about Bonita is that you can create without coding - it is a low-code platform. With Bonita, you can build the entire mechanism using the GUI, it’s that simple. You can build workflows very quickly and the integrations are very good. They offer a community version, which can be used for free.
However, the community edition of Bonita has very limited module functionality. If there was more functionality available from the enterprise edition, this would make Bonita an easier solution to learn. We have experienced some problems due to lack of documentation; more would be better, as would sample source code.
Camunda allows for visual demonstration and presentation of business process flows. The flexible Java-based option was a big win for us and allows for the integration of microservices very quickly. This solution is very stable with a free open-source version that is very good. The automation of this solution is great.
Camunda can be challenging in terms of initial setup. It seems to take a long time for completed workflows to be implemented on the Camunda Platform. The learning curve for this solution can be pretty steep. A mobile app would be a welcome enhancement to this solution. Process interfaces between diagrams could be improved and better template options would be welcomed.
After researching both these solutions closely, we chose the Camunda Platform. We feel Camunda is very stable, excellent at tracking bugs, and has a powerful BPMN engine. Camunda Platform is very developer-friendly and has helped us optimize our business process and achieve our productivity and profitability goals. We found Camunda Platform to be very portable. The cross-language capabilities support multiple frameworks and the number of client implementations make Camunda Platform very pluggable and a very good choice for us.
