Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It has the ability to scale up, as well as integrate with other systems within the organization to get real-time information from dashboards and reports.""The most valuable features are business process modeling and reporting.""The stability of the ARIS BPM platform is quite good. The nice thing about it is the central database, where we can use all of our data. We can even manage users.""This solution has helped us in terms of discovering business processes.""The ability to sort via multiple criteria to identify the relationships you need for a specific object.""ARIS is probably the most mature product in terms of modeling an enterprise architecture so that it has context.""The initial setup and installation are very straightforward.""The ease of use is the most valuable. I have tried a number of BPMN packages, and I find the user interface of ARIS BPM easier and more intuitive than others. If your team is knowledgeable on BPMN, it is really pretty easy to figure out on your own because it adheres to the standards extremely well. I have tried Bizagi, BizFlow, and a variety of such solutions, and I just liked ARIS BPM better."

"I think that it adds value to any organization, mainly in terms of business applications where you need workflows.""It is very easy to use events. K2 has useful tools.""Easily maintained and customization is quite simple.""Out of box connectivity with UiPath.""The solution offers very good integration capabilities. We've never had issues integrating it without solutions."

Cons
"Making it more customizable and easy to learn would be a benefit.""I would like to see the reporting aspects improved.""With ARIS BPM, the script creation is quite cumbersome. With version ten, we needed our developers to do scripting.""Integration with third-party tools should be improved (e.g. based on APIs).""The governance mechanism could be better, as could automation.""The interface is a little archaic.""The workflow approval process could be represented better in the overviews.""I use it strictly for developing the business process model. I don't use it for the actual automation. I do that with Vtenext. I have standardized on Vtenext, and I don't use ARIS BPM anymore. The Vtenext UI is just as good, and it is much more tightly coupled to the underlying object model. I can get more done in one session with Vtenext rather than first going to ARIS BPM, then importing, and having to edit it for tight coupling."

"I would also like to see the BPM features from Pega implemented, that have to do with the implementation of AI, and the robotics.""It is very flexible because you can design your own main forms, but if there were some templates according to your market, it would be more useful for a new customer. That would make K2 more user friendly and easier to use.""Difficult to include external partners with the solution deployed on-premise.""Heavy, cumbersome and inflexible.""The licensing needs to be improved. Right now, we find it's getting more expensive to use the product."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"In terms of pricing, it would be nice if it were more affordable.""This is absolutely not the cheapest solution in the market, but for large companies, the price is fine."
