Given the rapidly evolving circumstances around COVID-19, I would like to give the larger Camunda user community an update on how we are working through these challenges, how our globally distributed team continues to develop and support our software and what we are doing to support the health and well being of our employees, customers and partners.

Migrating processes from other vendors to Camunda

Written by Joe Pappas on , under Community category.

Many vendors support the BPMN standard, but others do not. And even those vendors who support the BPMN standard will omit or extend aspects of it, which can create challenges when you attempt to migrate processes to Camunda. However, there’s a set of tools available to help you migrate processes developed in other vendor platforms.

The Microservices Workflow Automation Cheat Sheet - Who owns your process model?

Written by Bernd Ruecker on , under Community category.

We recently shared 3 Common Pitfalls in Microservice Integration - and how to avoid them and lots of you wanted more. So this four-part blog series takes us one step back to the things you’ll be considering before migrating to a microservices architecture and applying workflow automation. In this fourth and final post in the series, we’ll discuss why the physical ownership of process models is so important to ongoing success.

Written by Bernd Ruecker on , under Community category.

We recently shared 3 Common Pitfalls in Microservice Integration - and how to avoid them and lots of you wanted more. So this four-part blog series takes us one step back to the things you’ll be considering before migrating to a microservices architecture and applying workflow automation. In this third post in the series, we’ll dive deeper into architecture and discuss whether it’s better to run a workflow engine centralized or decentralized.

Orchestrating Lambdas using Camunda Cloud

Written by Felix Jordan, CTO, MINEKO on , under Community category.

At MINEKO we automate the process for reviewing and validating private and commercial utility bills for tenants. We found that 81% of all utility bills issued in Germany are flawed. So we built a team of legal and automation experts to provide our customers with high quality legal checks on utility bills at a fraction of the costs of a lawyer.

We recently started using Camunda Cloud as part of Camunda’s private beta program. Our intention was to evaluate it for the traditional use case of running business processes, not knowing that it would completely change our thinking of design patterns regarding orchestration of microservices. This post describes our technical architecture in more depth, alongside the reasons we built it and would recommend it.
