Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It enables decisions based upon processes that we do model, and ultimately move forward with.""It has the ability to document in different formats. It is not tied to a specific model. You can look at it from different angles and see the intuitive nature of it. It always generates a valid diagram. You cannot create something that is not BPMN compliant.""The solution is stable. All the refreshes run very well.""The business process discovery is excellent. The diagram or blueprinting functionality of the solution are very good. It's quite easy. You can link the sub-processes and get a big overview of the whole process then.""It has a built-in capability to capture process owners and managers against processes along with other process governance roles.""For me, what I find to be the most valuable is its simplicity and the association with Microsoft Office.""It's a powerful tool."

"The most valuable feature for this solution is the automatic updating and propagation of changes across the system.""The initial setup was straightforward. With configuration, customizing or prepping the data and deployment, it took about one year to set up. We only needed two people to deploy and maintain the solution: one business architect and someone who specializes in customization and operations.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the reuse of common enterprise components and entities.""I find the IT portfolio management very valuable and helpful.""The solution is scalable. If a company needs to expand it, it's completely possible to do so.""The most valuable feature is that the software controls everything from a single management window.""Every module sets up the same information in a unique repository.""This is a complete package with all of the functionality that we need."

Cons
"We haven't yet been able to dabble in case management with Blueworks Live, as it is not yet offered with the product.""We would like the ability to add additional custom colors. We would like to color additional items to add notes to the blueprint.""The solution is a very basic discovery product so it doesn't have that much modeling capability. This can be improved.""The font size is really, really small and it's really not useful to print out process models because you cannot read what's written in different boxes. This makes it necessary for people to have access to the tool. We view licenses to see how the printing or output is. It's not very good.""The user interface is quite easy at first but process analysts soon run into roadblocks of limited functionality, which is disappointing.""It is BPMN-compliant but the tool needs to be more involved to get into a completely 2.0 oriented tool. It has a few things but it's not the complete BPMN model.""We don't like the user interface. It's complex. It's a powerful tool but it's complex to implement and requires a lot of manual work."

"We would like to see integration with other products, such as being able to use our workflow with SharePoint and Microsoft Office.""They do tend to push people to their professional services, instead of helping the customers with their problems. I understand this is their business. At the same time, however, they need to work on fact sheets or offer some program to help the customers who want to implement it themselves and to make it run properly in their environment.""The tool usability is weak and it also has a high learning curve.""Scalability can be a problem sometimes.""The features are limited. I'm hoping in the future the solution will be bigger and include more items. Right now, overall, it needs more.""I would like to see more regular updates released.""Lacking more out of the box integrations.""Better documentation and training would be helpful."

"If you want to use additional features, such as the Risk Management capability, then it is a little too expensive.""It is very expensive."
