This month 10 years ago, BPMN 2.0 was finalized and adopted as a standard, which in itself is something Camunda is happy to celebrate.But what has happened in the BPM space in the meantime is probably the most interesting thing about BPMN 2.0. A whole ecosystem and community has grown from the standard. While it originally came into existence to give the process building community a unified language, it sparked a lot of independent innovation.
Keller Williams is the world‘s leading real estate agency, employing more than 180,000 agents across the globe. This incredible growth story began in a single office in Texas, USA, in 1983, based on the core belief that real estate is all about relationships.

By chance I stumbled over the blog post Draw your daily routine if you want to learn about workflow diagramming from Zsofia Herendi. She did a great post on how hard it actually is to understand real-life processes — and that drawing diagrams helps.
In less than three years Societe Generale created its own workflow platform – SG workflow – onboarding more than 7,500 users who have successfully deployed an astonishing 180,000 tasks in the first quarter of 2020 alone.
Our awesome community is what makes us who we are. Passionate Camunda users like you organize events and activities around the world, and that’s something to celebrate!
With summer just around the corner, we’re excited to alert you to some great virtual events that are scheduled. We also want to share some recent events and what made them so special, and perhaps give you an idea for organizing an event of your own.
In the past few days, months of work by my fellow Camunda folk has resulted in a cavalcade of new releases - from big stuff like:
To smaller project releases
Because all of this fast-paced release of software can be slightly overwhelming, I wanted to spend some time focusing on a few specific parts that I’m quite excited about.
It’s well known that process flows created in Pega don’t conform to any open standard, despite looking rather BPMN-like. Folks who are looking to jump start their migration from Pega to Camunda are stuck having to manually redraw processes in Modeler. But manually redrawing process flows is tedious and time consuming, especially if there are many or complex processes to convert. In this tutorial we’ll step you through a utility that can help you generate a BPMN compliant process that can serve as a starting point for your Pega to Camunda conversion.
This article shows the fastest way to get a Camunda BPM server running on Microsoft Azure with command line usage. You should be comfortable with using a command-line interface (CLI), otherwise please switch to my blog “Anyone can run Camunda BPM on Azure in 10 Minutes”.
The resulting server will be suitable as a (shared, insecure) playground accessible via the internet. It is not a secure setup suitable for production usage. A technical operator setting up a production system would certainly approach things differently and possibly choose different Azure services.
We are excited to announce the availability of Camunda BPM 7.13, the latest release of Camunda’s process automation stack, including the core BPMN workflow and DMN decision engines as well as modelling, operations and analytics applications. Here is an overview of the highlights of this release.
