Free BPMN 2.0 tool – ADONIS:Community Edition
Updated version of this list can now be found on page “free tools for business analysts”. You can also find there links to detailed descriptions of the tools.
Here’s a list of business process modelling tools available for free. Most of them focuses on BPMN modeling, while some also allow e.g. simulation. If I find additional tools this list will be expanded. If time allows I will also add more in-depth reviews of those tools.
