There are all those BPM systems like Appian, AuraPortal, etc. They all kind of operate like KNIME. Has anyone thought about using KNIME as a BPM? If not, what is it that KNIME is missing?

Hello there, @cageybee!

Thank you for the interesting discussion starter. I am not sure what you mean with BPM systems – do you mean Business Process Management systems? Not sure exactly what aspects operate similar to KNIME as I don’t have experiences with BPMS. What did you have in mind?

PegaSystems, Appian, IBM BPM, Camunda, AuraPortal, Bizagi, etc. All of these (with the exception of Camunda) are iBPMS (Intelligent Business Process Management Suites/Systems). Low-code, workflow-based.

Hi there,

Do you have any use case where you used BPM and think you could use KNIME?

You are correct thinking KNIME and mentioned systems operate similar in a way how they build workflows - visual paradigm. Difference is that result/meaning of a KNIME workflow is primarily data i.e. results after some data analysis or data in ETL process or data for reporting/business intelligence while mentioned BPMS build workflows for processes. For example this use case is not really KNIME use case :slight_smile:

Although I’m not much into business processes do believe certain parts of it can be mimic/done with KNIME Analytics Platform and a bit more with KNIME Server.
