Camunda Platform

Camunda Platform is a very sophisticated tool for any product which provides automation & process management of various aspects in your application. It is best suited for application where the customer journey is very crucial for the company. Shopping platforms or single page applications are not very well suited to use Camunda Platform.

Microsoft Power Automate

Well Suited - Collecting data and organizing it.- Eliminate a lot of admin work.- Send auto-response emails to customers/users.- Notify relevant users when the data is updated.- Creating business process flows. Less Appropriate - If creating a flow to create a pdf file that combines all the attachments into one pdf file. - Flow will fail sometimes if the flow is too long and complex and if the flow connections are changed from one user to another.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • "When an item is changed in a SharePoint list, do ____" - very easy to trigger massive flows of data based upon a one-field change on a SharePoint list.
  • Being able to manually trigger from a Microsoft PowerApp button press to perform actions.
  • Scheduled tasks - once a day, get every record in (LIST) with (Filters) and do (Stuff) to them.

Cons

Camunda Platform

  • GUI lacks shortcuts
  • GUI is not intuitive and hard to use. More involved technical capabilities are hidden in the menus which make navigation and setup difficult.
  • Documentation is not fully fleshed out and examples are bare. The target audience is technically adept software developers, with expected experience and knowledge of javascript and java.
  • Community exists but is relatively small and highly technical. Support is not easily accessible unless the costly paid version is opted for.
  • Programming languages used are confusing as it merges java and javascript in certain scripts.
  • Debugging is difficult as there is no error/typo checking or console in the designer when using scripts. It does not have the capabilities of more fully featured IDEs, but is a simple text entry for scripts.

Microsoft Power Automate

  • I think general training could be improved. I'm sure there are many more uses than the simple automation tasks I was using Power Automate for, but I didn't have the time or bandwidth to dig through Microsoft's documentation on the tool.

For most tasks WinAutomation is great and easy to use. You just set up tasks on a step by step basis and you can even tell the program what to do when there is an error (such as continue with job). Sometimes with complicated web extraction jobs it would be good to be able to easily extract data from the web page source.

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.

Microsoft Power Automate is the first flow-based service that I have used, and I loved its convenience. It does take some time to learn and a lot of research. I recommend that you first plan out how you imagine that the flow should work and change things around as you start creating the flows.

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

  • Power Automate has allowed us to create applications or customer interfaces we would not have been able to if we weren't able to move data around like we can with Power Automate
  • Power Automate helped us connect 3rd party systems that previously had no connection by passing data between different channels. This reduces license counts.
