Needed a BPM Tool for workflow applications

Comments: I was tasked with finding a BPM product to develop workflow applications. I evaluated three, of which BonitaSoft was one. Compared with the other products, Bonita was the easiest to understand and develop with. Our organization wanted to customize the forms, and Bonita was the easiest to accomplish that with.

Comments: We have been using your open source product for the past 3 months or so. We are very likely to continue using your open source product. I fully understand the commercial aspects of business, as I have been in this business for over 40 years, so that is not the issue.

We would be very happy to contribute to your product in code, examples, and large implementations. We also could advertise your product in the healthcare industry along side our product that is presented throughout the world in healthcare shows.

We have an open source offering (i.e. messaging framework) and we are using BonitaBPM as our business modelling tool. We have successfully used your product and created front-end web interfaces. Your product provides our Business Analysts the ability they have always wanted but were unable to achieve with out your solution, to close the gap between business knowledge and the developers.

Our issue is we were told to not ask questions of your support persons, as we are not using your commercial offering. We have a healthcare messaging framework that requires vast numbers of business requirements that we have modelled in BonitaBPM and used the output as our web interface. I would like to think we have common ground between our organizations that would provide mutual benefit.

We, Leidos, are a 23,000 person firm. We are an organization that has been providing healthcare solutions sense 1965 and we have a very strong reputation in US government and international healthcare. I would think we might be able to aid one another in our efforts.

We have able to apply the original technical information we received from your staff and gained additional information and understanding as own development team members dug through your product code base. If you would like to discuss this further please let me know.

Comments: I think that some functions are explained away too quickly, (specific actors, sending emails, creating your own group), but I the software does the job, in a rather short time frame.

Thank you for having an awesome customer service even for the "Community" version.

Good product, but needs more community support

Comments: I am new to BonitaSoft. I have gone through the 3-hour online webinar, and the tool has lots of promise. However, we are not in a position as an institution to spend $20k a year on it. So if we want to use it, we must at least start with the community edition.

That being said, it doesn't seem like a very active community. I think if you released an open-source ldap authentication module, you might spark more activity in the open source version, which would lead to more adoption of the commercial version

Pros: It is wonderfully easy to use. BPMN 2.0 support is a great positive.

Process design is easy though the need for connectors (background activities (AKA Database access etc.)) is great.

Cons: Open Support is down to the community and it can be slow to get a response.

Groovy and JAVA knowledge are an absolute requirement.

Initial documentation is easy to follow but, once you've done that, drys up quickly. We would like to see a proper developers user manual, one that is truely capable of showing off the product. I personaly hate Wiki's, they just don't do it for me.

Training is expensive! Nothing more to say on that subject.

Overall: We love the product, but as with all things there are frustrations especially in the early days, our people have been learning and moving forward two - three steps and then somethng comes along and you have to take a quick one backwards.

This is one product that will go forward and I believe will become the standard to compete with. I just wish support would be easier for the open community.

I will be reporting back over time on findings, regards
