We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The free online Help and E-Learning is very strong."
"I like all of the features. I like that you can simulate the processes and add the time standard."
"The product has a comfortable GUI and a good environment for users."
"I find Bizagi so user friendly. I also think that its modeling abilities are great and it's easy to teach them to new users."
"The API is pretty straightforward."
"This solution is easy to use and it is a good tool for process modeling."
"The solution's simulation capabilities are the most valuable aspects."
"The most valuable feature is the simulation."
"You can go huge - so it is definitely a scalable solution."
"One thing I like about OutSystems is that there's no lock-in. You can keep running your applications because it's on .NET and hosted centrally. That's one of the advantages I see there in terms of not having an IT strategy that has a dependency on a particular platform."
"We have no complaints surrounding both the scalability and stability of this solution."
"I like the mobile features the most, and there are also various features around the portal we created that I enjoy."
"There is literally a ton of stuff it can do. It's very flexible."
"It is a stable solution, and the initial setup is straightforward."
"It is difficult to drive ROI on types of processes involving complex business rules."
"The performance could use improvement. We couldn't connect the processes to on one file. The performance is an issue for us."
"It needs some better notation functionality."
"I think that they could improve their update process. Some of the process mining techniques could be added to Bizagi. I think that they can improve their simulation abilities to include more elements of the BPMN."
"The solution needs to make it easier to use RPA products on it. They may need an RPA specific interface. It would be better than having to make an RPA tool to use for viewing. Most of our work is about making RPA tools with the Bizagi, not using Bizagi itself."
"I would like to see more in terms of analytics and better reporting."
"There could be more documentation."
"Bizagi needs a way to define categories such as process groups like the APQC framework, PCF, and handle the processes within it."
"It needs improvement in the AI capability."
"The integration points need to be increased. People have also started to adopt this solution for their regular needs. That means it's not only the big enterprises that are adopting this solution. There are also small and medium enterprises that are adopting it. I've read that where you have large deployments, OutSystems starts to crumble a bit. That is the idea that no customer would know at the beginning and would also not like to hit the wall there. When it is on the client, there are a lot of applications already on low-code, and then suddenly you realize that you want to do some big applications, and you face hurdles. This is the general feedback for all such platforms."
"The technical features are good, but the actual commercialization is out of reach."
"Since we first started using OutSystems, they switched their language support from Java and .NET to .NET only, which was a bit of a surprise. Their language support could be better in this sense, although on our resource side it is now a bit more flexible."
"The solution is costly."
"There are not enough resources on the market."
"I think that its price is reasonable."
"This solution would be expensive for a company that has a lot of users."
"The Bizagi modeler can be downloaded free of charge."
"We have no issues with the pricing."
"It is only necessary to pay for licenses when ready to deploy applications to production."
"It has a very high price. Many clients complain about the price for maintaining the application on Bizagi."
"Make sure that your requirements are explicitly defined from the outset. This will help you choose the right setup and licensing for your needs."
"It is expensive."
"For a single application, it's too expensive."
"OutSystems is a good solution, but it's not cheap."
"I think the pricing for OutSystems is comparable with similar solutions. I would place it somewhere in the middle. We pay for the bundle and don't pay anything extra in terms of licensing and other fees."
