More GeneXus Pros »

"The most valuable aspect of the solution is the various workflows.""The most valuable feature is the situational layer cake.""I have a lot of experience in this kind of industry, and Pega is one of the best solutions in terms of performance, capabilities, and the way we develop.""The workflow designing and integration are the most valuable features. Also, the UI design was pretty easy.""The most valuable feature is flexibility, as we can configure it to best suit our requirements.""In general, we use web services to integrate this solution with our other tools. It is the main approach we use with this solution and it integrates with all tools that we need. If you want to integrate with other solutions such ThreatFire or similar, it is possible as well.""The stability has been good. We haven't had any issues.""The ability to define processes, build reports, and get insights or analytics on data is most valuable. It is a powerful platform."

Cons
"It would be helpful to have additional assisted processing with training."

More GeneXus Cons »

"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.""The previous versions had good training documents but the updated versions need to improve the documentation.""Reporting is not so clear and not so great. We really struggle to get the right reporting. When we need reporting based on the content of the tickets, we are not able to get it. The MIS reporting is not great. That's one of the reasons why we are switching to ServiceNow. Its compatibility with the higher versions of Internet Explorer should be improved. It really works well in Mozilla Firefox or any other browser, but when it comes to Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer, sometimes, the layout gets disturbed. The positioning of the buttons changes, and there is some distortion in the layout. I am not sure whether it is our configuration problem or Pega's, but when it is working in Mozilla Firefox, it should also work in Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer.""The solution would benefit from more integration capabilities.""The way the IDE works with the chatbox and the taxonomy imports could be a little smoother.""Sometimes when we are patching some data from the database, we are getting added as a timeout.""It should have integration with non-relational databases. A lot of databases are non-relational, and as a company, we are planning to move to NoSQL or open-source databases. It would be good if we are able to install and use Pega on a NoSQL database. They can also try to tailor or organize the company a bit differently and go more towards the microservice concept. I would like Pega to develop machine learning and intelligent AI algorithms. They have a good foundation in terms of the model and the stuff that we are using for some customers, and it will be good to onboard as many machine learning algorithms as possible.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"We mostly have a yearly license.""It is cost-effective for medium enterprises. It is cheaper than ServiceNow.""The price of this solution, including installation and configuration, is comparable to competing vendors.""The price is a bit expensive.""The solution could be less expensive according to my customers. However, I think the price of the solution is fair.""It's a user-based license where, as you scale the numbers of users, the price increases.""The pricing is pretty good, compared to other similar products."
