Quotes From Members

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

Pros
In terms of UX design, somebody who has not had experience with ARIS will be able to use it very easily.The cloud version has the advantage that you can work on it from anywhere.Aris Connect opens collaboration opportunities between team members within the organization where they can actually submit change requests, navigate processes, and offer comments. It opens up the potential for BPM within the organization. I didn't see such an angle of a BPM portal with any other products. So I would say that's the best selling feature.In terms of using the cloud version, if you're somebody who, like myself, has got a lot of experience and understands measures and notations and things, basically it's unrestricted. You can do so many things. You can do your Archimaze, you can do BPMN. There's lots of stuff you can do in there and if you're a good field person and you cause yourself re-using things or whatever, then it's very nice, it's very easy to use.This solution has improved the way our organization does training.

Cons
It would be very helpful if this solution were more open and could integrate with other solutions like ServiceNow.The trial version of this solution does not give you enough time to learn how to use it, so it should be extended to one year.If you have multiple tiers of approvals into that update of the policy, or the process design itself, it takes ages to prepare those internal flows within the system.On an enterprise level, the ability to onboard somebody quickly is cumbersome because it just has too many things in it. It's got something like a hundred or more techniques and things in it.I would like to see more support for architectural diagrams.

We care about technology and support because support is very important and a BPM is not easy to implement.I would like to see a lot more case studies.The user experience, while it has improved, should continue to improve.The business would like to use the product with a lot less IT and equipment involvement.Better integration with other products in the automation suite.Also, we would like to see integration with artificial intelligence, machine learning-type of technical capabilities. Right now, there are a lot Watson libraries out there. Building those integrations more, out-of-the-box, from IBM would be a good direction.I would like it more documentation during the design phase.We would appreciate more user-friendly definitions of processes with a more user-friendly interface for documenting processes.

It should provide more flexibility to connect with external systems, and there should be in-built services that can be used to integrate with other systems quickly.The cloud and license of the subscription model for IBM BPM can be complex. There are a lot of alternatives to choose from.It has a low cost to implement. You'll get your money back in the same year that you complete the project.Our customers do see ROI. They'll identify some particularly painful or uncoordinated processes to start with, then build out from there, picking off low hanging fruit.We chose to purchase IBM BPM because it was bundled with the actual RPA program/solution that we decided to purchase. We decided to use Automation Anywhere tool (RPA), and it is was bundled with IBM BPM.It gives us a good return on investment.​We have definitely seen ROI. When we first kicked it off, we said it had to pay for itself within three years, and it did.
