I’m happy to announce the new version 1.3.0 of the Camunda BPM Custom Batch extension. This extension provides a simple way to use the camunda batch functionality for your own purposes and split huge workloads into small asynchronous jobs. If you are interested in how the extension is working, and how customers use it, take a look at the presentation slides from CamundaCon 2018.
So what happened since version 1.0.0? Here is a summary of exclusive and prioritized batch jobs.
We are happy to announce the release of Camunda Optimize version 2.4.0-alpha2. You can find many improvements and features from the upcoming Optimize version 2.4.0 in this second alpha release, including:

We recently hosted the Berlin Docker Meetup to talk about Continuous Integration and containers. At Camunda we have a long history with Docker. We have been using container technologies for many years to power our Continuous Integration platform and make our products reliable and well tested. During the last year, we focused particularly on Kubernetes and Google Cloud in order to support our increasing workload.
We are happy to announce the first beta of the Camunda Modeler 3.0.0. This release achieves feature parity with the last stable version and completes our port of the application to an entirely new architecture. Once more it incorporates numerous additional improvements and bug fixes. We encourage you to try it out.
T-Mobile Austria is one of Austria’s largest telecommunications providers. It serves around 7.5 million customers, with 97% of users accessing fast LTE reception. Camunda is a key layer in T-Mobile Austria’s architecture, helping the company to maintain agility within a complex, large-scale environment. We’ve been working with the team at T-Mobile Austria since 2015, in fact, we just wrote a case study about our work with them.
T-Mobile Austria’s IT team of around 100 developers is responsible for ensuring existing and new products integrate seamlessly with around 40 back-end systems. But it’s not just bringing new products to market where the team excels, it also manages an incredible amount of data, at all hours. One of the solutions it uses – database partitioning – is something you can easily implement in your own operations.
On a freezing, snowy Saturday recently, more than 30 hackers joined us at our Berlin HQ for Camunda’s first Hackday to orchestrate some seriously smart workflows.
One of the best aspects of the day was welcoming a number of Camunda newcomers alongside our experienced users, so we had a great opportunity to assess how intuitive the ‘getting started’ experience is. Plus, it’s always valuable to have a fresh pair of eyes look over your code, so for me, it was interesting to see how developers and architects interacted with our software when using it for the first time.
Gartner has recently released the latest version of their Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites (iBPMS). You will not find Camunda BPM in that MQ, and in this blog post, I want to explain why.
Despite rumours to the contrary, Gartner will look at your product even if you’re not a paying customer. So although we aren’t Gartner customers, they reached out to us in June last year announcing that a new version of the MQ was in the making and they were considering including Camunda BPM, since it is coming up more and more often in client conversations. They have a standardized approach to this, and in the first step they asked us if we believe our product qualifies for the MQ. Here is what I replied:
We recently hosted the Domain Driven Design Berlin Meetup: Real World Domain Driven Design Example from the Startup World… and why this architecture failed in the end.
Our speaker for the evening, the talented Sandra Ahlgrimm, Cloud Advocate at Microsoft, walked us through an interesting real-life case study, brimming with DevOps lessons. Here’s our key takeaways from this insightful evening
“Functionality has been contracted. User acceptance testing is in five weeks. Is it a big deal to implement it?”
What do you do when you’re handed a project with an incredibly tight deadline? This is exactly where SynerTrade found itself – with just five weeks to deliver a seriously complex approval workflow for a global financial client.
