We are automating the orchestration between our workers currently which are microservices written using Java spring boot. Our application provides retail insurance services to individual customers and Camunda Platform helps in orchestration between different microservices among various lifecycles of the policy. Camunda Platform is very easy to integrate and dashboard is also very informative.
  • Asynchronous functionality of Camunda Platform and different types of gateways.
  • It does not support Java LocalDate as of now, fails in de serialization.
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.
  • Automation of business processes
  • Integrates with microservices
  • Easy to Integrate

We leverage Camunda BPM as a process engine to build process-aware solutions for our clients. Typically this is to replace traditional monolithic applications that have not kept up with changes in the business and market, with applications that are designed around the workflows of the team members, and the processes that the business needs to compete. These solutions range from reservation systems, to construction management, to marketing automation plans, but that just scratches the surface.
  • Embedding a first-class process capability in your application.
  • Providing a standards-based modeling capability, backed by a standards-native engine.
  • Great support for developers and a developer community.
  • Great set of comprehensive APIs across a number of different design points
  • All of the code is available in GitHub as a great open source project with Apache licenses.
  • Comprehensive documentation of code and APIs and usage.
  • Innovative spin-offs like Zeebe.
  • Support for micro-services orchestration.
  • Support for both embedded and stand alone usage scenarios.
  • The company is innovative and focused on this space.
  • 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.
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.

  • We've built a good business around developing and deploying Camunda for our clients over the last 7 years.
  • Our clients are finding it a cost-effective way to try before they buy.
  • There's an over-reliance on big offshore outsourcing shops, which hurts ROI and success rates.
They're just different products with different target audiences. In different ways, IBM and Pega have offerings that are meant to serve processes in a platform-centric approach to their customers. An emphasis on unified development environments, including forms building, rules, processes, integrations, etc. is all baked in. There's a real emphasis on enabling citizen developers or subject matter experts, not just developers (at the cost of, potentially a less complete experience for developers). Alfresco Activiti is more targeted as an add on for those who use Alfresco's content management. Camunda is a great fit for embedded use cases or more developer-centric or developer-friendly initiatives. Camunda doesn't ship with all the bells and whistles because those things are available already in Java and other programming languages and platforms. e.g. you can build your best-of-breed solution. So, we use almost every product in this space, but we understand when to use each one.
Camunda provides pretty standard product support offerings.

Used as a part of a solution mainly to deal with customer problems related to business processes and rules need to be adhered to in a particular system. It is primarily used by the technical team as a tool to orchestrate the required tasks and processes, and primarily sold as part of a solution offering by consultants.
  • Task orchestration
  • Freeware
  • Graphical interface allows normal users to understand business process model diagrams more intuitively
  • 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.
A viable solution for low budget projects where highly technical staff, specifically software developers, are available as a resource. The product requires deep technical knowledge and also experience with the product to deal with its quirks, however once implemented is relatively straightforward to maintain. Suitable for small-med sized/scale business process/rule processing requirements.

  • 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)
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.
