Press Release

November 13, 2023

”Market focus on Endpoint Orchestration and Automation Fabric gets [Camunda] highest possible scores in Vision and Innovation.”

San Francisco, Calif. Camunda, the leader in process orchestration, enters The Forrester Wave™: Digital Process Automation Software as A Strong Performer receiving the highest scores possible in six criteria: vision, innovation, adoption, pricing flexibility and transparency, data-driven automation, and end-to-end orchestration. We believe this validates Camunda’s vision grounded in open architecture, cloud-native technology, and open standards as a welcomed alternative to monolithic automation solutions.  

According to the report “DPA [Digital Process Automation] customers should look for providers that have top scores for the most important DPA deep needs such as: End-to-end orchestration. DPA deep use cases require a strong orchestration layer. The ability to build, visualize, and manage cloud and on-premises endpoints such as APIs, robotic process automation (RPA) bots, microservices, and enterprise applications will be a certainty. […]”

“We are incredibly proud of our debut in the 2023 Forrester Wave™ DPA report,” said Jakob Freund, CEO at Camunda. “The Forrester Wave is a respected industry evaluation, and Camunda’s placement confirms for us that our vision of process orchestration is an increasingly viable and preferred approach for companies of all sizes. 

“While we believe that pro-code capabilities are the foundation to tackle the complexity of any real-world automation, Camunda also brings the flexibility and extensibility of smart low-code accelerators to address a lot more use cases, by a lot more people, a lot faster.”

The Significance of Process Orchestration 

Process Orchestration helps companies structure their most complex processes and connect the various endpoints of a process (people, systems, and devices) to achieve their most ambitious goals around end-to-end process automation and digital transformation. Camunda can orchestrate business processes across a variety of enterprise applications, cloud-native technologies, and task automation tools by using pre-built Connectors. Companies like Atlassian, ING, and Vodafone use process orchestration to increase operational excellence, boost customer experience, manage their risk and compliance and generally accelerate their digital transformation.

Why Open Architecture Matters 

Camunda’s approach to open architecture is to design software that allows for greater flexibility and interoperability. This means organizations can adapt and scale their operations without being tied to a single vendor’s ecosystem. 

Camunda is committed to continuing its focus on open standards and architecture, aiming to further disrupt the market and offer organizations more freedom in how they manage their most critical business processes and enable different personas from citizen to low-code developers to automate and orchestrate processes from end to end.
