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.

We were able to meet all of the requirements for functionality that were specified, and we did not experience challenges where we had to compromise on functionality.It has helped us a lot, especially during the initial phase of a project where most of the things are done on paper.It creates workflows to handle business processes. It allows us to route approvals to users without human intervention.Our solutions using Nintex has been most successful in automating HR processes because it allows you to easily and rapidly build solutions that conform to the unique business processes for each entity.This tool set makes it easy to integrate current processes and increase adoption rates and usage for the tool, as well as the process changes to update it on the fly.It provides data accuracy with fewer failures.It saves time as tasks are automated.Only Nintex has the feature which allows attachments to an email.​

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.

The security features for this solution need to be improved.We are currently facing a lot of issues with Nintex, and we are trying to move away from this solution.Nintex seems to be very server intensive. It is one of the reasons that we are moving to a different product on the SharePoint 2016 platform.​Bring all features available from the on-premise product into the cloud version and the workflow error reporting.​Converting a document from PDF to MS Word, or vice versa, needs to be improved.User interface could use some improvement. Perhaps integration with Visual Studio or SharePoint Designer would be useful.Currently, copying workflow actions from one workflow to another is not possible. Also, the Office 365 solution is not as mature as on-premise.While Nintex Workflow has pretty robust troubleshooting abilities, I think that improving the default logging and notifications would be helpful.

The annual support costs are expensive.Our maintenance costs are reduced.Offering a licensing model that allows for multiple small workflows would be a huge improvement to an already great platform.Nintex products are expensive, but valuable. Licensing in on-premise was historically based on a perpetual model, where you’d license per Web front-end. However, they are switching exclusively to a consumption (subscription) model, where you purchase the number of workflows you think you’ll use in your environment, and can scale up from there.
