We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Process culture is making noise inside the organization because now, everybody knows that their time is being monitored."
"Since implementing we have had a faster time to solution, with fewer resources needed."
"The process models provide self-documenting systems."
"We appreciate the drag and drop functionality and the easy to access plug and play features."
"Appian also has very flexible local integration."
"Good workflow engines that bridge the gaps of processes."
"Form building capabilities and well thought out process modelling are key points to this product."
"In terms of interface, it's very good. In terms of infrastructure, it's amazing and already using multiple tools behind the scenes. It's a low-code platform, so it's very easy to implement."
"We use this solution on a daily basis, and it is very stable."
"Features like AFM, the gateway, and Global DNS are the coolest features that save work for us."
"The most valuable features are load balancing and WAF."
"The reporting feature is quite good."
"The best aspect of the solution is that we can have everything integrated with a rather large capacity in order to personalize and configure specific rules."
"The GUI is fine, at least from an engineer's perspective."
"The documentation needs to be improved."
"We would like to have more granular control for interface styling."
"My only request is that they decrease the license costs."
"The solution could use some more tutorials to help brand new users figure out how to use the product effectively."
"They should provide more flexibility so designers can create a more picture perfect device."
"Lacks integration with other products."
"Authoring tool is slow to use resulted in limitations on how quickly solutions can be built."
"It is also not easy to learn. Training tutorials could be improved."
"There are a lot of scripts available on the internet for people who know how to use them, but with a graphical interface, it would be easier for new users."
"The shell, kernel, or Linux has something like a delay, especially with the Virtual Edition, when you are trying to implement it in the cloud and you want to access it remotely with web management. It would be great if they could improve their kernel. It was difficult for me, especially when I got started with BIG-IP. I was struggling to find which commands work with it. If you want to work with it, you have to be a Linux guy."
"I had trouble with high availability deployment in my environment."
"Integration with VAS is something that they need to work on."
"The solution should improve pricing. It's expensive in comparison to other American solutions."
"They could use YAML or JSON if they wanted to make it a little bit easier for us."
"The cost depends on the number of users, although I recommend taking an unlimited license."
"The solution offers a monthly subscription model. That's what we use. I recall it being about $90 a month. They do have different tiers."
"It's an enterprise tool and can be used by enterprise only. So it's a very expensive tool."
"The licensing will be on a monthly basis. We are estimating that cost to be around $2000 to maybe $3,000 per month. We don't foresee any costs above that."
