Cons
"When you compare with Microsoft Exchange, the UI could be more user-friendly.""From the Domino side, it should support DKIM and DMARC.""Recently, IBM sold the product to HCL.

"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."
