Deliver Workflow Automation to Your Customers

Add workflow automation to your software products through a powerful engine that scales with your business.

Enhance Your Products with Workflow Automation

Software vendors in a variety of industries have recognized the value in offering workflow automation in their products. While you can build your own workflow engine from scratch, it is a resource-intensive effort that can add considerable overhead to a project. A compelling alternative is to embed an existing workflow engine in your product.

Workflow Engine Checklist

When looking for a workflow engine to add to your product, keep these things in mind:

  • Can the workflow engine be embedded? For Java-based products, can the engine be embedded as a library?
  • Can the workflow engine integrate with the product via a REST API and/or a Java API?
  • Does the engine use open standards such as BPMN for process models and DMN for business decisions?
  • Will business stakeholders need a graphical user interface that they can use to edit the processes and decisions that are implemented in the product?
  • Do you need to enhance the workflow engine with tools for other purposes, such as live process monitoring?
  • Is the workflow engine available under an open source license that allows it to be embedded in a product?
  • Can you purchase an OEM license to benefit from additional features, support, and maintenance?
  • Is the technology and the company behind it well-established in the market?

Case Study: Sparta Systems

On their quest for a leading standard as well as a competent technology to manage workflows for all of their next generation cloud-based products (SaaS), Sparta Systems decided against internal development and chose instead to implement Camunda.

We wanted to offer an out-of-the-box capability that would enable business analysts to create and deploy business processes. Camunda met all of our evaluation criteria and was easily embeddable within our existing Java application and proved to be a great partner throughout the entire process.

From a technical point of view, the seamless integration of Camunda in Java EE-based enterprise scenarios (in our case, inside a Glassfish application server) is a major advantage. This integration leads to several unique selling points of Camunda, such as the multi-tenancy solution we need, Java EE-conformant deployment of process applications, and improved management of asynchronous jobs (e.g. timer-driven events).
