Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We use this solution on a daily basis, and it is very stable.""Features like AFM, the gateway, and Global DNS are the coolest features that save work for us.""The most valuable features are load balancing and WAF.""The reporting feature is quite good.""The best aspect of the solution is that we can have everything integrated with a rather large capacity in order to personalize and configure specific rules.""The GUI is fine, at least from an engineer's perspective."

"It excels at analytics. It provides visibility across all activities of a company's processes and performance.""It helps improve your process through continual measurement.""This solution is very stable.""This solution has streamlined our operation and improved the TAT of sales, operations, and underwriters.""Good user interface and good add option.""The solution offers great notifications.""I like the APIs and the BPM coach is a good tool. But if I had to pick one, it would be the API.""This tool is very useful when it comes to enterprise-grade automation and governmental processes for the security aspects, performance, and reliability."

Cons
"There are a lot of scripts available on the internet for people who know how to use them, but with a graphical interface, it would be easier for new users.""The shell, kernel, or Linux has something like a delay, especially with the Virtual Edition, when you are trying to implement it in the cloud and you want to access it remotely with web management. It would be great if they could improve their kernel. It was difficult for me, especially when I got started with BIG-IP. I was struggling to find which commands work with it. If you want to work with it, you have to be a Linux guy.""I had trouble with high availability deployment in my environment.""Integration with VAS is something that they need to work on.""The solution should improve pricing. It's expensive in comparison to other American solutions.""They could use YAML or JSON if they wanted to make it a little bit easier for us."

More F5 BIG-IQ Cons »

"We care about technology and support because support is very important and a BPM is not easy to implement.""Could increase vulnerability and security patches to make it more robust.""Finding errors and bugs on the system is not easy. We can't seem to use the events or logs to find them, so it makes it difficult to debug the system. They really need to work on their debugging features to make is much, much easier. It would improve the solution considerably and should be something they add in a future release.""The debugging needs improvement. There is some confusion surrounding the debugging.""Importing and exporting between multiple environments is more difficult with other tools.""IBM BPM lacks openness, that is, the ability to become open for new options in terms of APIs, front-end development, and ecosystem. IBM BPM has been quite closed. One of the main improvements would be to somehow embed the rules engine into IBM BPM. Merging IBM BRMS and the rules engine with IBM BPM would be helpful. If there was some simpler way to define rules without having to put IBM BRMS on top of it, it would be good. It's something that we can get out of Camunda but not out of IBM BPM.""Our developers are complaining that it's too complex to maintain.""Patching is required every three months and a major upgrade every two years, which should be optional."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The cloud and license of the subscription model for IBM BPM can be complex. There are a lot of alternatives to choose from.""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 price is quite inflated, and I think that our service contract is per year with monthly fees."
