Product Details

What is Bonita Platform?

Bonitasoft supports digital operations and modernization of information systems with Bonita, an open-source and extensible platform for automation and optimization of business processes.

Presented as easy to handle and integrate into heterogeneous information systems, Bonita accelerates development and deployment of process automation projects, service orchestration and application development. This is made possible by its low code capabilities, reusable components, and unified deployment on-premise and on the cloud.

CIOs can confront both short-term challenges (often from requests from business teams who wish to support their business development), and the long-term challenge of modernizing IT to deliver on business needs and customer expectations.

Open-source, extensible and integrated, Bonita is based on an architecture that clearly separates the process, data and user interface layers. All project team members can collaborate effectively to develop, deploy and maintain sustainable processes in line with the expectations of business users. Project governance, specific to each company, is respected by a clear separation between visual programming and coding capabilities. Each project team member can leverage their specific know-how and skills to add value. The technologies used do not require learning new languages ​​or methods, but instead rely on commonly used components such as Java, enterprise services such as SSO and LDAP, continuous delivery, and the ability to develop in SDKs. These capabilities avoid the need for additional resources.

The use of BPMN, reusable components, numerous extension points, deployment on premise or in the cloud all help guarantee rapid and agile developments.

Even the most complex business processes gain visibility thanks to centralized monitoring. Traceability, execution control and reduced risk of errors allow teams to focus on optimizing and improving operational efficiency on an ongoing basis.

It is a great tool to automate from the simplest to the most difficult processes inside an organization Anonymous user support is quite limited and complicates the interaction with users refusing to register with the company

Well-suited scenarios: quick development of process-based solutions, orchestration of Robots (RPA), complex projects (after the design of the architecture), and applications where integration with different external systems is needed. Not suited: I really believe that any kind of application could be designed and implemented on a process-based solution.

In our use case, Bonita was well-suited enough. But there as been some difficulties to implement a cron-based process to clean up or retry the cases in error state or not updated for a long time for example. I can't say how the product will be suited for a more complex use case, but I'm sure that the support of Bonitasoft will help a lot, as has been the case for us.

The platform is recommended for any company and even more for those who want to carry out or advance in digital transformation, due to its easy integration with the applications of the same company and third parties, allowing the organization of the key business processes of a company.

It seems to be working well in our testing for small and straightforward workflow processing, but we haven't really built any complicated ones for a production, such as to engage mutiple stakeholders, talking to different backend or a long runner etc. so can't really say much from that perspective.

The Bonita platform is available in a Community edition with no licensing costs, a subscription model, and a PaaS alternative in the Bonita Cloud. This lets a potential customer experiment by himself before deciding on the platform. The Community edition is not a toy and is fully functional for a vast majority of requirements. Bonitasoft has very good publicly available documentation that helps you get started, an area for contributions where you can find different connectors, widgets, and examples, and a good forum for questions and answers.

Any company wanting to automate business projects will have a very positive experience with the Bonita platform.

Bonita is a low code platform. It is very easy to build custom applications on Bonita. Anyone with limited knowledge can start working with Bonita BPM. This platform has extensive usage and can be molded and used with other applications. Bonita comes with a host of REST API that can be used and it makes Data CRUD operations very easy.

A good scenario for Bonita is for example office changes process where we need to connect with AD and be sure to update specific IT tools used by a large portion of company workers.

A less appropriate scenario would be to implement lots of specific rules with various webpages that would deliver a huge number of ending scenarios.

Bonita Platform functionality is very broad and cost effective, but it still takes considerable expertise. Bonita Platform is either the free community edition or the subscription for enterprises, and partner implementations don't seem very well advertised or available. So a smaller organization that wants to automate processes needs to think about finding a consultant to support the effort. Medium and large organizations probably have the expertise in-house to really make Bonita work for their processes.

Bonita Platform is better suited for organizations with well-defined structure. Bonita is also very efficient in both simple and complex processes, allowing for easy integration with legacy systems. Bonita Platform faces difficulties with information technology sectors focusing on classic methodologies for developing software solutions.

It is a great BPM tool, with an excellent DB engine and language for developing business rules. The form designer should be better, it is very basic and takes a long time to build forms that meet real user requirements.

Well Suited: In the case of workflow requirements it will be the best fit, like claim process, leave management, Ticketing solution, etc.

Less appropriate: If you have a design complex process that involves dynamic UI and RPA involvement along with extensive OOTB data management, then I think Bonita Platform will not be the best fit.

Bonita BPM is well suited for:
  • UI design and experience in general.
  • Connectors: Data Base connectors with almost every DB suite.
  • BPMN language and standard: Very good instantiation of Business Process Management Notation.
  • Sub-process.
  • Roles and automation of business process.
  • Great business rule engine.
  • Perfect integration using Java code, which is easy to maintain and improve.
  • Great reporting tools.

It is well suited to mixing IT applications and human interactions in numerous dynamic combinations.

It is less suited for mass data transfer with few case management combinations, where an ETL tool would be more efficient.
