Pros
The solution is stable. Even the older versions are stable.This product is very easy-to-use and user-friendly.I really enjoy using the workflow management.Compared to other products on the market, Bonita presents a pretty acceptable level of robustness.It is a great product that is powerful in developing applications.

It gives us the ability to create toolkits and use them across many different applications. It allows us to write things one time, instead of having to write a diary for every single different application. We can write at once and reuse it.The workflow of BAW's automation is handled inside of BPM, so we can see what state it is at and how things are processing through.It has had a positive effect on decision-making in my organization. It helps us with our dispute process.It has integrated UI and deployment models, and it has a deep set of consultant and service provider ecosystem features.One of the most valuable features is the way that they are adapting to the market. Initially, it was doing only workflow. Now it has started bringing all the other components like rules within the workflow and then the integration with RPA.No matter what somebody's technical experience level is, the tool can start adding value immediately. Even if that is just an analyst who doesn't have any technical background, they can use some of these no quote accelerators to get things from ideation to deployment in a matter of minutes.It helps develop applications very quickly. Once clients get used to it and familiar with the methodology, then they don't feel so locked in. It is able to add this element of agility to our clients' software development lifecycle. That is my favorite thing about it: You're not so locked in as you used to be when developing applications.IBM has spent a lot of time on the connections between the rules engine and its other product, the core BPM platform. They've really centralized the suite as one offering now.

Cons
The community edition has limited module functionality. If they could release some of the functionality that's available in the enterprise edition that would be helpful to those learning to use the solution.It is missing some important features that other products have.We are struggling a bit with integrations.It would be nice to have a wizard to help walk through the development process and create a backbone.There is a considerable learning curve.

The development UI is sometimes a little slow.Every client is moving to the cloud. We are still a little behind with IBM, but we are catching up from my point of view.I would like to see more streamlined install and provisioning; preferably containerized IBM BPM would be helpful.From what I understand, in the next release they're actually going to combine all of this together as one integrated solution... If we could have one unified way to build a solution, that would really help.I would definitely like to see a unified interface between the BPM side of the house and the case side of the house. Something that just seems a bit more cohesive, because right now there is sort of a disconnect between the BPM and the case side of the house. That makes it a bit of a hard sell sometimes. That is definitely first and foremost on my wish list.The main areas which need improvement are specifically around reporting and analytics.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The Community Edition comes free of charge.I believe this is a very good financial choice.

Nowadays, clients are looking at pricing as one of the major factors. For IBM products, they always think it is expensive for them. We are still educating our clients on the IBM FlexPoints licensing.There is still a relatively high total cost of ownership to actually implement, support, and stand up solutions.The solution has saved us time.
