Read what people say are the most valuable features of the solutions they use.
Neil Simpson says in a Bizagi review
Founder/Principal at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
Bizagi offers phenomenal ease of use - building working solutions and making continuous improvements is very quick/agile and does not require a large technical team "behind the curtain" to assist with completing the application, resolving compilation and deployment issues, etc. With the appropriate governance framework, properly trained business analysts can be empowered to design and build business solutions themselves.

SeanHook says in a ServiceNow review
System Architect at a pharma/biotech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
ServiceNow Discovery is very valuable. It does, however, come at a steep cost of time and effort to implement it correctly. Do not be fooled into thinking it will "just work." Discovery, within any platform, requires meticulous planning and management to have it work for you. No discover solution is ever the "silver bullet" either, so plan to have more than one discovery engine implemented to cover your enterprise. View full review »
Alain says in a Bizagi review
President at a consultancy with 1-10 employees
The most valuable feature for us is the Bizagi Modeler. It provides for easy to use modeling, respecting FULLY the BPMN 2.0 standard. Objects are fully reused (import/integration) with Bizagi Studio. The free online Help and E-Learning is very strong. It is very complete and well done!! This solution is very easy to use and is very stable. Overall, this is a very good tool to drive the global Process Architecture of a company. View full review »
David Hendrickson says in a Zudy VINYL review
Senior Director of IT at NXC Imaging
The most valuable features of Zudy VINYL are the abilities for us to rapidly develop applications, deploy them easily, and then make adjustments as we realize the things that we forgot to put in the first release or the second release. We've done eight releases in eleven months for our field management solution. View full review »
it_user561243 says in a ServiceNow review
IT Coordinator at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
The most valuable feature is the flexibility of development for customization. For example, we are starting now to expand the tool for HR and some other departments. They need applications or processes to improve their tasks. For instance, right now we are discussing, with the Internal Risk team, creation of an application inside ServiceNow so they can open a ticket and follow all the steps according to their process. One of the nice things about ServiceNow is that, if you have your process, you can design the ticket and the form according to your process. That is very useful and can be done quickly.

Jon Pederson says in a Zudy VINYL review
CFO of the Markets Group at a media company with 10,001+ employees
The Lite Integration is really the key thing. You're able to attach the VINYL software to a variety of different systems very easily and pull data together in a way that is really difficult to do using traditional technology. That's really the key, core functionality that really makes the software very useful. Also, the fact that it's a no-code platform also makes it easier for people to understand and deal with internally, to continue to build applications and modify existing applications.

reviewer896733 says in a ServiceNow review
Director of Channels and Alliances at a tech vendor with 11-50 employees
The biggest feature is that it is cloud-based, so it's always updated, it's always current. We don't have to worry about patches, revisions. We're always working with the latest version. The features continue to improve. We get new features and we can choose to turn them on or not, but we're always getting them. That is part of the program. View full review »
Markus Travaille says in a Mendix review
Business Development Manager & Project manager at EGALiT
* The complete stack: You have a complete cloud operations, and everything is included. For every customer, wherever we go, we can provide a solution within a few days with a complete data environment in a very stable, high performance cloud. * The development environment is model-driven. We really like this because we can use the information from this for our business engineers to make the information models, and they can also execute the model. * We do not need programmers anymore, so it is a small team of business engineers who design and build the application without us needing to program. That makes our teams four to six times more productive, but also a lot smaller with no overhead and very flexible. It is something, and not every Mendix partner does this. A lot of them have still use analysts and programmers in different roles, but we do not do this. I like that we use the platform on this level. We stick within the core of the platform, so we don't do anything with custom Java or custom JavaScript. View full review »
PRAMOD JAIN says in an OutSystems review
Associate Architect at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
It has so many features and almost every one of them is awesome. It makes our development life easier. The most important features of this tool are its visual modeling capabilities and drag and drop functionality. You can see what you are coding which makes it easy to understand and maintain. They have also created a big revolution in digital transformation by introducing native mobile app development under the same IDE. Integrations with external systems with SOAP and REST are easy to implement off-the-shelf, but a developer can always implement specific libraries for other integrations. View full review »

Mallik Kesavaraju says in a Pega BPM review
Associate Director at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
I think it is the user interface and the ease of developing the workflow for an application. It has a lot of gadgets to just plug and play, and that cuts down your development time quite a bit. View full review »
Ashish Yadav says in a Bizagi review
Associate Director - Automation, AI at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
Rapid development and overall functionalities are decent. The fact that users can look at the process and alignment, it is a big plus. Also that it is an out-of-the-box connector for SAP is a definite edge. View full review »
Guillermo Valin says in a Bizagi review
Management Systems Project Manager at a media company with 501-1,000 employees
Bizagi is a valuable tool for us to model and automate business processes. It has an easy to use interface which final users accepted with much more enthusiasm than our ERP (SAP). It provided greater levels of automation and integration. View full review »
George Khairallah says in a QuickBase review
Chief Technology Officer at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The ease of use of Quickbase is second to none. Creating applications in Quickbase will take, literally, a fraction of the time it would take to create them in other database applications (which shall remain unnamed). . View full review »

Mehdi Hasankhan.M says in an Oracle Application Express (APEX) review
Head of Development and Implementation at a pharma/biotech company with 201-500 employees
The first feature that I think is very important is that the product is able to safely deploy on the web. You can develop any application and you can share it on the web without any installation by the end client. The second-best option in Oracle APEX is that it is very easy and very fast. You can quickly create forms and reports and in the reports feature there are a lot of options to help complete tasks. In some ways, it is the same as in Microsoft Excel. You can create charts or create almost anything that has the same features as Excel and it will be immediately available for the end client to use it. View full review »

reviewer1016565 says in a Microsoft Azure App Service review
Architect at a energy/utilities company with 5,001-10,000 employees
I like that you can see everything once you log on to the portals. You can see everything including the pricing of the solution. You know how much it's going to cost your client, how much it is going to cost you monthly or daily and you can even control the usage so that you pay even less. So you have better control over things. View full review »
reviewer948792 says in a Microsoft PowerApps review
Solution Architect at a software R&D company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The most valuable feature is easily connecting to data services. I can have a SharePoint list and connect with users through PowerApps to present the information. I am also able to connect with Microsoft Flow, which allows me to connect with different people to email and update items in Sharepoint. View full review »

MikhailLyubimov says in a Pega BPM review
Managing Director, Intelligent Automation Practice, Business Consulting at a tech vendor with 10,001+ employees
Pega is currently number one in BPM and case management solutions, according to Gartner and Forrester. I like that it’s mostly a no-code platform. It’s also more of an enterprise-level solution. It looks like a front end stack. There are dozens of applications that are just moored to each other. However, Pega feels like one solution. The interface is quite simple and easy to use, even for beginners. View full review »
