Most Helpful Review
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.
With the appropriate governance framework, properly trained business analysts can be empowered to design and build business solutions themselves.
Bizagi is a very useful tool because it does not require you to program. The user logic is very easy to understand even for people who are not engineers or developers.
The main feature of Bizagi is the speed to which we can automate processes and how we can modify them without a strong impact on the end users.
The user logic is very easy to understand, even for people who are not engineers nor developers.
It has an easy to use interface which final users accepted with much more enthusiasm than our ERP (SAP).
Great software for managing my business. I think this is the best business process management software.
It automates a completely manual, complicated process.
It's made things seamless and it's more efficient, and there's an audit trail where it wasn't there before.
One of the most valuable features of the solution is how rapid we can implement it, going from a design to an operational concept in a very short period of time.
VINYL has given us the ability to really improve the speed with which we deploy releases and respond to the good ideas that our people have.
There are two most valuable features: one is the ability to pull data from a bunch of different places and put them together. And the second is the speed at which you can get a new app developed. So instead of waiting months for this new app to come out, if you have an internal team putting it together, you can roll it out in weeks. I've even seen days. It's incredible how fast you can make changes.
VINYL has really helped us speed up application development at a reasonable cost.
We have been able to leverage the platform to rapidly build custom solutions, and tailor-make them to our needs.
It's extremely easy to use in getting into the IDE and then back down to your applications, and getting from your applications to your pages, and navigating through all your tables. That's very simple and pretty intuitive.
It allows us higher visibility into our data, which allows us to data-check faster, and validate data that we had not been able to validate, prior.
It is difficult to drive ROI on types of processes involving complex business rules.
For very large projects and deployments, the automated "One Click" deployment wizard can sometimes take a long time to complete.
One of the features which could be improved is machine learning. Even though this product has been working on this topic, we can see that it still requires improvement.
Also, the tool sometimes feels not so mature when we find random deploy errors from testing to production environment.
It would be helpful if they added some extra features in the next update.
Framework approach, which extends to reusability in tools, like Pega, for deployment management could be improved.
It needs an easier setup for the Bizagi Engine.
Sometimes, when your process is big with multiple lanes, the product will freeze the issue noticed on multiple laptops, not a single PC.
Right now it's very dependent on having an imagination to understand.
I'd like to see the next release of VINYL have more user interface solutions to it, so that it could be a more user-friendly product on the front end for the customers that are utilizing the tool. We didn't have a solution to help automate all of our reporting in the past which identified the need to make sure that we could tap into our data sources and automate all of our reporting, which is exactly why we needed the tool.
The features that I'd like to see in VINYL next would be the ability to have more control over, or have a rule-based control over column headings and column labels.
Some new features I think I'd like to see is visibility into running jobs so that we can see what the status is, or it's not stuck in its process and doing its thing, or how much longer it's going to take. I'd also like to see a native calendaring function so we can put calendars into our apps with maybe even recurring tasks or appointments and that sort of thing. We'd also like to see multi-select lists. The users being able to pick multiple things to filter on and get a list and be able to export that list.
The ease of use for individuals to self-serve could be improved. The solution is no-code, but there is still a decent learning curve associated with the product and some app design principles necessary before people can self-serve.
When you are trying to delete certain columns or delete or drop tables, it will throw an error and it will force you to hunt down every location where those things are being referenced. You have to delete them from the very end and work your way backward... It would be easier, when you're deleting that table, if it would concatenate all the way down.
There are a lot of almost "hidden" features captured in these Edge Case settings... If you want a scroll bar at the bottom, instead of having it select rows to show, you have to select Disable Panel Location Service, which doesn't sound at all like what it's supposed to do. Naming conventions could be changed a little bit.
One of the troubles we have sometimes is the amount of data we're processing within the applications. That can really add a lot of "laggy-ness." That's an ongoing struggle we're going to have while we use it. It doesn't happen for all our applications, only some of them that are heavy on the reporting.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It is only necessary to pay for licenses when ready to deploy applications to production.
If they can freeze the pricing in a contract, I advise them to do so.
It is on par with other BPM tools, but not as expensive as Pega nor Appian.
The modeler itself is free. For the whole BPM suite, there are other options that may be better.
For the prices, we didn't try a negotiations about licensing or pricing, but if i can say a word about this, I find Bizagi prices to be well thought out.
Pricing is good value for money.
The value for us for VINYL is that we've got one fee that we're paying per year and we can deploy and build as many apps and bring in as many users as we need.
The licensing costs we pay are, I believe about 5,000 a month. That's every quarter. We've been doing it for about a year now, and the prices have remained steady. We feel it's a reasonable cost for what we're getting because it's unlimited users. So as big as you want to make it, you're not constrained by a per-user licensing cost or any of those other restrictions, so that's going to stifle your development.
Our licensing costs are approximately 100K annually, and from my perspective, that really is quite the value with the flexibility and what we're getting from the product.
The pricing is moderate. It's okay.
Pricing and licensing are expensive.
We have seen a 30 percent decrease in time for some of our workflows.
I feel the product’s pricing is a good value. The licensing model is very straightforward. You license the platform and you can build however many solutions you want with it.
Pricing was actually one of the things that drew us to the product initially... the way it was licensed at the time, I got a flat monthly fee from Zudy for the Vinyl product, which allowed me to basically have unlimited use of it... We have an annual license, we pay monthly. It's very competitive and very worthwhile given the return we get out of it.
