Replace Legacy BPMS
If you’re struggling with a traditional business process management suite, Camunda can help.
Legacy BPMS doesn’t measure up
When starting to automate business processes, many organizations purchase a traditional business process management suite (BPMS). However, these products are not suited to the modern world of process automation, which requires agility, scalability, and openness.
Legacy BPMS, which are also known as iBPMS, rely on closed architectures and a proprietary approach to development, limiting business agility and making it difficult and expensive to make changes. They can’t scale dynamically in response to business demand, which means they cause performance issues that negatively affect customers. And they don’t provide the tools you need to continuously improve your processes.
Camunda is lightweight and developer-friendly
- Create, edit, and deploy process diagrams using the BPMN standard
- Collaborate across business and IT teams to design and share process flows
- Streamline automation efforts by building a catalog of reusable templates

- Drastically increase process performance with a cloud-native workflow engine that’s designed for speed, scale, and resilience

- Discover, analyze, and solve technical problems in production, in real time
