Overall Satisfaction with Bonita BPM

We are a software company that uses Bonita BPM as the BPM Engine to customize our clients workflow processes and deliver a superior and high scale product that can be utilized in their every day needs within their departments/organization. The clients range from defense contractors, private contractors and a few select commercial companies.
  • Bonita uses JBoss and is very easily integrated with Java if using API calls or even their REST services.
  • Bonita has the use of JasperReports which makes it easier for us to build reports on our own and attach them as part of the process.
  • Bonita Development Studio is very slow in performance. It's built on top of Eclipse BUT one needs too much patience to work with the development studio.
  • I have used up till v6.3 so I am not aware of the latest and greatest features on v7.x. But I would like full control on what we can display and how we display things on BPM Admin and User Portal to the customer. Be able to use latest and greatest technology like Angular and less frameworks (They already have less).
  • Development Studio should have the capability of communicating with an enterprise database server such as SQL or Oracle. The inbuilt Bonita Database is not that reliable for developers.
  • We are still developing prototypes for our clients so there is no ROI yet.
Bonita is a open source solution out there which makes it much better for usage by developers who are integrating Bonita BPM with their applications. It can be used to manage processes with finance departments, security departments, human resource departments and pretty much everything an organization does. The only place I don't see it being used is with a visitor management solution to be able to screen and process visitors by integrating with hardware devices such as passport scanners, digital signature pads and badge printers.
