Camunda’s COVID-19 Response: Helping tackle critical challenges in the pandemic

Coronavirus has changed the world as we know it and together we’re navigating a new normal. The incredible worldwide response to this challenge is truly inspiring, especially the way individuals and organizations are rapidly developing solutions to a whole new set of problems. We want to help you any way we can.


We have seen many organizations pivoting fast to respond to urgent needs – either to support the overburdened health care systems directly, to help manage unexpected customer needs or to better organize tasks for a workforce that is suddenly working remotely. These shifts in demands and how business gets done, brought on by the pandemic, may have transformed operations that now require technological orchestration and process automation across thousands of individuals, countries, languages and time zones. And we realize that many of you might not have the tools and resources to quickly adapt your systems to cope with these challenges.

This is why we’ve put together a special package for initiatives and organizations helping society tackle the challenges of COVID-19 — we will donate our Enterprise products for qualified organizations completely free of charge, so you can scale operations as fast as possible. Our experts will help your teams hit the ground running with Camunda consulting and online training. Plus our experienced support teams will be on hand to help each step of the way, as you tackle the most challenging issues we have faced as a global society.

One project at a time: connecting health care workers with supplies

We’re proud to be working with the incredible RemedyMatch – a logistics platform that matches donated protective medical articles like gloves, masks, coats and disinfectants, with organizations who need them, such as clinics, resident doctors, nurses, retail workers or people caring for sick relatives. We found each other through the WirVSVirus hackathon – an initiative run by the German government in March to develop, test and improve solutions for emerging challenges surrounding COVID-19.

“RemedyMatch is bridging the delivery bottlenecks during the COVID-19 pandemic and working hard to ensure the personal protection of those on the frontlines.” says Matthias Diener Head of Marketing at RemedyMatch.

“We use Camunda as the backend of our logistics solution to make sure we can quickly and accurately match thousands of protective articles with people who need them each day, and then ensure they arrive as fast as possible, so our frontline workers are safe and able to continue their amazing efforts.”

  • Should data be embedded in business processes?...

    In October, I had the opportunity to lead a session at Camunda Unconference. This was a rather unique event, with an “unconference” format designed specifically for the community; it was most conducive to great peer-to-peer discussions, and exhange of ideas, experiences and learnings. What was also interesting was that the topics for the sessions were sourced from within the community, and each topic was voted in to a final shortlist. The sessions themselves were discussion-led, to encourage collaboration and creativity. Data in Process I had voted for “Data in Process” as one of the topics; it has always intrigued me, and needless to say, I was thrilled at the opportunity to lead the session! I have been consulting for customers building...

  • Testing Process Dependencies

    Welcome to the next post in our blog series: “Treat your processes like code – test them!” You can find the last post: “Testing entire process paths” here. Today’s topic is “Testing process dependencies”. For the execution of a model, there are often additional resources required. This might be source code or the dependency on other models. But how can we deal with this when testing our models? In this post we will take a closer look at the following dependencies: Models: Dependencies to BPMN diagrams referenced by the executed model Code: Dependencies on source code referenced in the BPMN. We will get to know another library that will help us with testing: camunda-bpm-mockito. The examples for this blog post...
