Overcoming Camunda’s Biggest Weakness

As someone who has worked with Camunda for almost 10 years, and one of the few people on the planet who are certified in it, I can unequivocally say that it’s a wonderful platform for process automation.  I like its scalability. Camunda is designed to handle large volumes of data and processes, and it can be […]

I Loved UML. But It Never Loved Me Back.

I have to admit that I have a weakness for UML diagrams. In the early 90’s, as a new computer science student, light headed with the promise of OO languages, I loved the simplicity of UML.  I loved the way it allowed complex system interactions and user needs to be abstracted away and objectively communicated. […]

5 Things About Camunda Instance Migration

Introduction Camunda has, in my opinion, one of the best capacities for process instance migrations in any platform. But don’t let that fool you. Just because Camunda is good at migration, that doesn’t mean it’s an easy thing to do! Today, we’ll talk about five things you need to consider as you migrate instances from […]

Introduction If you’re trying to get your technology portfolio aligned with your business needs, then you need to consider the natural alignment of Getting Jobs Done (GJD) and Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN).  In this post, we’re going to explore how these two powerful methodologies can work together to streamline processes and boost efficiency. […]

Camunda, String Theory, and the Theory of Process

Science teaches us that if you magnify matter deeply enough, zoom into the object and past the molecules, past the atom, past the electron and neurons and photons and electrons, and even the quarks, and you zoom in even further, you find like strings of energy. This is String Theory. These strings hum. They vibrate. […]

Top Five Things to Know When Testing Your Camunda BPM Processes

Testing BPM applications requires that you change your testing mindset. Unlike most conventional applications, which we tend to think of as two-dimensional, BPM applications are n-dimensional. With your traditional applications usually, there is just a UI and multiple integrations. Workflow applications, on the other hand, are a lot more powerful, but harder to test. You’ve […]

What You Need to Know When Considering Camunda BPM

Enterprise integration has to deal with multiple heterogeneous applications running in different locations. These applications are typically part of complex and long-running business processes. These Business Processes involve both Application-to-Application data flow and human interaction to enter/review/update data in the flow. Along with these heterogeneous systems, these humans have multiple roles that need to co-coordinate […]

Top 5 things to know when combining RPA and Camunda

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a technology that allows us to configure a software ‘robot’ to emulate the actions of a human interacting with a computer system. The robots are really just software programs that are typically installed on a user’s desktop System that can then record and then playback the actions of people, with […]

What to know when choreographing Microservices with Camunda

Although the definition of a microservice has evolved over the last few years, it is generally accepted that Microservices is a software architecture style. It is based on small building blocks that focus on a single responsibility and function and uses a modular approach to become combining into large complex applications. There is no doubt […]
