Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Microsoft Power Automate

Microsoft Power Automate is best suited for approvals and working with SharePoint Lists. It is easy to create an approval that either requires the submitter's manager (Active Directory) to approve or enter in a specific person or person's to approve. Additional approvers and other subtasks can be added as well. For example, if the request was approved, a SharePoint List can be created and or updated by adding the new request as a new row and enter in only the data that you set as required on the list. It will also send out customized emails for "Approved" or "Rejected" requests. Also, add comments to Microsoft Teams Channels, export to Microsoft Excel or Adobe PDF, these are some of the features available in flow.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • Integrates across the entire O365 suite which makes the tool easy to access and little effort to deploy. Simple licensing roll-out is all that is needed.
  • Self-help knowledge base is very informative.

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.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • One thing is, unlike PowerApps, it's not for everyone. You need some technical know how.
  • Sometimes connections get broken and you might have to recreate the Flow, which can be a nightmare scenario depending on how big it is.
  • Cryptic error messages, I feel we could be given more info when a Flow fails.

Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow) is very user friendly. It is mostly just click to add functions or connections and then fill in pertinent information to ensure that the connector functions the way that you want. I was able to create my first flow within minutes just by looking through the connectors and piecing it together.

So Microsoft Flow support for its general troubleshooting or correcting issues is excellent. But to my knowledge, Microsoft Flow itself does not have service providers, even though they offer templates on their online app. I have found myself many times trying to complete individual actions that have no known template or even forum example. Every business is unique, and Microsoft does an excellent job of providing versatile yet straightforward systems. Microsoft Flow is definitely on the more advanced side of things. Having support or being able to purchase superior service (on building personalized flows) would be great.

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.

Microsoft Power Automate

In my opinion [Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow)] is heads and shoulders above Nintex. It was much easier to learn to use and had a much cleaner UI. Nintex and Power Automate both had connections to a lot of platforms but since we used a majority of Microsoft products Power Automate seemed to plug in to our organization just a bit smoother. In the time that we had both products Power Automate had great improvements to an already good product whereas Nintex had much fewer (although also improved).

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)

Microsoft Power Automate

  • we have seen improvement in productivity due to increased automation
  • where additional headcounts were required in the past, we are now able to manage with the current team as-is.
  • critical reports are generated with minimal effort and without concerns of human error in the data.
