I was recently asked by a customer if I know of any free process modeling and automation tools. This got me thinking of how many vendors provide a free edition of their software for unlimited use i.e. no trial basis or try before you buy editions. After some research I came up with the following short list.
Free BPM and Process Modeling Tools:
- BizAgi Process Modeler
- Questetra BPM Suite
- Tibco Business Studio
- Aris Express (soon to be released)
- Process Maker
- Open ModelSphere
- Visual Paradigm – Smart Development Environment (Community Edition)
- Visual Paradigm for UML (Community Edition)
I have not evaluated each application so could not comment on their strengths and weaknesses but would be interested to hear about other free BPM and/or Enterprise Architecture tools so I can add them to my resource list.
