Bonita BPM - Low cost, low code efficient platform

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

  • In our small company the community edition suited our needs. Although it is hard to talk about ROI in context of that small application.
  • We have introduced the platform to several companies. Delivering things faster, ensuring things are done, optimizing distribution and reporting what has been done are the most common benefits.

Bonita BPM - not yet ready for continuous integration

Score 6 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Return on Investment

  • We've had serious problems with 'automated' processes in earlier versions of Bonita (via Talend), especially with connectors. In Bonita 7 we replaced these with REST calls, hoping for better performance.
  • Overall, using Bonita has not had a positive impact on our development efficiency. Moving from Talend (using Bonita 5) to Bonita 7 has improved this somewhat. Still, it remains a pain to integrate Bonita in the development and delivery process.
  • Migrating from Bonita 7.0 to 7.1 has proven to be a difficult undertaking, mainly on the database level. This has cost us a lot of time and better support would be welcomed.

An opinion about Bonita

Score 8 out of 10

Return on Investment

  • Once it is used to implement a process in a specific way, Bonita is much more efficient than common implementations done with languages such as Java or C# (.NET).
  • Decrease in development time if the process is appropriated planned.
  • Created a process that would be more difficult if it was implemented in other ways.

  • BPM has been purchased when it has been demonstrated that one process lack of efficiency was costing around 80k€ per year to the company in manual administrative tasks
  • The use of a BPM to synchronise some common fields between two database has improve velocity and reliability of customer support communication on our bug tracking system.
