• The Pulse of Process Automation

    This year has redefined ‘business as usual’ and we wanted to gauge how process automation was playing in a role in 2020 and beyond. So when our global community gathered for CamundaCon LIVE 2020.1 in April, we ran a global pulse survey with 160 attendees — from Germany and the USA, to South Africa and Ecuador — and we asked everything, from how COVID-19 had impacted business, to where they saw the future of process automation.  Here’s what we discovered: Are you interested in learning more about the future of process automation?

    Even before the Object Management Group (OMG) had released the CMMN Specification in 2014, Camunda had already started building a CMMN engine.
