Camunda Platform

For clients with a need for mission-critical business applications, Camunda brings great process tech to those applications. For clients with good development capabilities, Camunda enables those developers to design around processes, instead of designing everything as a CRUD application that ignores processes. It's a great product for process purists and development purists, but it has appeal beyond these core groups. Camunda also provides good tools for having visibility into how the product works, which is also very valuable.

JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform

JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is great when you are looking at building more or less pure Java applications and SOA micro-services that may integrate with multiple external data sources. It is less useful when you are looking to build simple SOA applications that are simple in nature since the overhead associated with deploying as well as learning BPEL.

JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform

Cons

Camunda Platform

  • Camunda expects that you will develop your own user interfaces. This is either a benefit or a barrier depending on your perspective on packaged UI.
  • As an open source vendor, Camunda is under-covered in analyst reports.
Scott Francis | TrustRadius Reviewer

JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform

  • JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is dependent and build for JEE/Java application so using a different programming paradigm will be much harder.
  • There is still a learning curve to get familiar with BPEL making it harder to get an SOA micro-service up and running compared to a fully cloud-based service

Redhat support generally is great and that is true for the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform as well. Even if you do not buy support from Redhat, you can reply on the discussion board and bug fixes via the open-source JBoss without much trouble.

Alternatives Considered

Camunda Platform

Lacks good documentation. Training and documentation is geared towards those who are already technically adept. Does not have as many data integrations as other full fledged products. Paid version of Camunda is not as fully fledged as other products.

JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform

Oracle SOA Suite (Oracle BPM + Oracle BPEL + other components) and IBM WebSphere middleware is most costly and suited if you are already using applications and other middleware components from these vendors. Mulesoft (Salesforce Mule ESB) is best when you need deep integration with one of Salesforce's existing products. JBoss and Apache Web Server are best when you do not want to invest infant CapEx/OpEx on license fee. Apache Web Server based middleware is best for simple SOA applications.

Return on Investment

Camunda Platform

  • Freeware makes testing and utilizing Camunda a cost-effective solution
  • High level of difficulty in implementation may require a lot more time and effort than normally expected. (2-3x more effort than other paid and fully featured solutions)
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform

  • Positive impact on the business by being able to use existing Java/JEE expertise to build and deploy applications and business services.
  • Positive ROI due to no license cost for JBoss Enterprise SOA.
