It's a fairly robust system.""The interface is quite simple and easy to use, even for beginners.""The stability has been good. We haven't had any issues.""It is easy to use, easy to understand, easy to implement and easy to enhance and we can do it as a Cloud.

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 »

"The pricing model needs to be improved. Right now, it's too expensive.""Pega currently is trying to add chatbots to their systems, and it's still quite immature. This part definitely needs to be improved.""The solution would benefit from more integration capabilities.""Sometimes when we are patching some data from the database, we are getting added as a timeout.""Compared to other BPM products, the interface is somewhat complex, so the usability could be improved.""We need more light retail BPM tools within the Pega system. However, Pega is mostly for big companies.""From a technical point of view, it would be helpful to have some advanced analytics to help with configuration. We have a lot of unwanted features and it would be good to configure it more appropriately so that we are using just exactly what we need.""There are some UX shortcomings within the solution. However, it's my understanding that they have addressed them and in the next three months they will come out with a new updated version. They will be moving away from HTML5."

It is cheaper than ServiceNow.""The solution could be less expensive according to my customers. However, I think the price of the solution is fair.""We mostly have a yearly license."
