Who qualifies for the program?

Bizagi's fully functional enterprise solution can only be used for non-commercial purposes including academic research, training and education in non-production environments. All providers of Higher Education, both private and publicly funded, are entitled to use Bizagi products at no cost for non-commercial purposes, as are its active students, lecturers, researchers and all other academic employees.

To teach process automation, we needed a BPMS with little setup time and a gentle learning curve, so that students can focus on learning fundamental concepts rather than the specifics of a tool. Bizagi fits our requirements nicely. We set up and ran a process in under two hours. The tutorials are helpful and the tool offers step-by-step guidance. After a couple of weeks, students were able to implement non-trivial processes, enabling us to move into advanced concepts and cover a lot of material in less than half a semester."

I used Bizagi for the first time last year and had a very good experience. The platform has many benefits for the Business Process Management course that I teach. No programming is required, making it easy to use. It adheres to BPMN standards. And what I really like is the way it moves seamlessly between modeling and execution."

Bizagi is my favourite BPMS. Why? First, it has a clear and understandable business object model (the E-R style representation and navigation of what's essentially an XML data structure). Second, a low resource impact/footprint. Third, a rationalized (spinning balls metaphor) progression to execution that makes common sense. Fourth, the inclusion of simulation. But most importantly, you are by far the quickest in helping us resolve problems."
