Overall Satisfaction with Bonita BPM

For integration you don't need to develop hard library code with the need of an external contractor or many, as the software is based on standard connectors that you can adapt to your own application's ecosystem. After a dedicated session to take the tool in hand, an application engineer can easily use the IDE and run the tool to build dedicated interfaces.
Bonita helped us to address two challenges: connecting editor applications to make interfaces and data exchanges between them, and processing workflows of dedicated processes within the company. The main challenges were to be able to create interfaces without having to hire external contractors to develop them, and taking advantage of this BPM tool, just by setting up the tool and by making the way we follow data exchanges between applications easy.
  • Bonita simplifies the way to produce interfaces between applications of the market.
  • Bonita reduces time to implement interface and time to maintain interfaces, using standard connectors.
  • The IDE helps to draw a user friendly chart to accelerate deployment of process and increase process governance.
  • Bonita forms are not highly customizable in terms of design.
  • Some updates may break down your interface. A "test mode" on a virtual appliance with replicated copy of your [production] environment would be a great improvement.
  • There is no ctrl-Z, no undo or redo, in the UI Designer editor.
  • One positive impact is that this BPM tool aims to control your process by furnishing an application layer in addition to the process itself to achieve a PDCA way of driving processes.
  • Bonita helped to make money by saving on external companies specialized in programming competencies with interfaces.
  • Bonita helped to reduce time to maintain code and focus on execution and control instead of customizations and devs.
Bonita BPM does have some nice visual tools. The annual maintenance is not so high and we particularly liked the visual tool to create business rules. Bonitasoft’s color-coded tools make life a bit simpler and more memorable for beginners or non-coder people. We really like Bonitasoft’s color-coded tools for creating rules.
With Bonita, a company can use connectors to communicate with the external world. Several connectors are already supplied and you can develop new ones if necessary. BonitaSoft can scale out over 1,000 requests per second, and you can scale the machine hosting the Bonitasoft solution to adapt it depending on the number of processes you run in parallel.
The in/out arrival process for interns and employees is an example of a process where a company can achieve a significant result in a reduced amount of time. This is particularly right with the prepackaged processes fully furnished by Bonitasoft when you pay for annual maintenance. More pre-packaged processes based on standards exist and are furnished by Bonitasoft.
