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."

"A complete business project management suite which seems to open endless possibility.""The most valuable feature is probably the nature of it.""The Signavio tool is very easy to use and it is one of the reasons why I like it.""The most valuable features of this solution are the portal for spreading it over the organization, the usability, and the workflow generator in the background.""The most valuable feature for me is usability.""The feature that I like the most is the collaboration hub, where every user or every employee can see the process in the overview.""I like the collaboration and the real-time aspects of it.""The interface is very intuitive and includes a drag-and-drop function."

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."

More IBM Blueworks Live Cons »

"It is difficult to quickly digest the vast power of the suite and make use of those capabilities fully.""If you start from scratch then I think this product would be ideal, but if you already have something then it may or may not suit you.""I find it difficult to figure out how I can better align this solution with my KPIs.""It is sometimes difficult to find the match between what is possible and what is wanted, or what is helpful with the product, so better documentation may assist in this regard.""If you're going to use the tool the way I'm using it, which is to work with businesses and capture what they're thinking, it would be helpful to be able to insert other objects onto a diagram.""Being able to integrate the Workflow Accelerator with more products would be good.""There could be something more on the reporting side of it for the processes you have captured or processes that might be work in progress to see where to target your effort because you don't always have lots of resources to spare""There are a few bugs when you use the Microsoft Surface Hub with the big screen."

More IBM Blueworks Live Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Lower than the competition with highly flexible licensing plans.""This solution provides really great value for the money.""My client purchased one editor license and the collaboration hub, which covers up to a hundred people.""I think that the price of the licenses is between $2,000 USD and $3,000 USD per license per year, plus the hub usage. I cannot remember the exact cost, but it is affordable.""I think we're spending about $150,000 a year on licensing costs.""SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees."
