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

Pros
"It excels at analytics. It provides visibility across all activities of a company's processes and performance.""It helps improve your process through continual measurement.""This solution is very stable.""This solution has streamlined our operation and improved the TAT of sales, operations, and underwriters.""Good user interface and good add option.""The solution offers great notifications.""I like the APIs and the BPM coach is a good tool. But if I had to pick one, it would be the API.""This tool is very useful when it comes to enterprise-grade automation and governmental processes for the security aspects, performance, and reliability."

More IBM BPM Pros »

"Initial setup is straightforward. All the components are readily available.""The addition of generics to handle common functionality across types, and the more recent upgrade of the dataset to the Entity Framework, has cut development time drastically, while increasing quality and confidence between builds.""The .NET Framework simplified operations dealing with the allocation and deallocation of memory spaces and the additional processing resources.""A great solution for creating program solutions in a framework for Microsoft Windows quickly and easily.""The most valuable features are the Domain Controller and the WBFS Manager.""The most valuable feature is the financial accounting.""When it comes to the user interface, the context is better than other tools because it is easier to use.""The .NET framework is a mature platform that is very helpful and saves time during the software development process."

Cons
"We care about technology and support because support is very important and a BPM is not easy to implement.""Could increase vulnerability and security patches to make it more robust.""Finding errors and bugs on the system is not easy. We can't seem to use the events or logs to find them, so it makes it difficult to debug the system. They really need to work on their debugging features to make is much, much easier. It would improve the solution considerably and should be something they add in a future release.""The debugging needs improvement. There is some confusion surrounding the debugging.""Importing and exporting between multiple environments is more difficult with other tools.""IBM BPM lacks openness, that is, the ability to become open for new options in terms of APIs, front-end development, and ecosystem. IBM BPM has been quite closed. One of the main improvements would be to somehow embed the rules engine into IBM BPM. Merging IBM BRMS and the rules engine with IBM BPM would be helpful. If there was some simpler way to define rules without having to put IBM BRMS on top of it, it would be good. It's something that we can get out of Camunda but not out of IBM BPM.""Our developers are complaining that it's too complex to maintain.""Patching is required every three months and a major upgrade every two years, which should be optional."

"Needs stronger security with respect to cloud issues.""It would be nice if the framework were able to work with additional environments and systems like Linux.""Better integration with other tools to make the operation faster would be an improvement.""This solution should include Power BI so that we don't have to use any third-party tools.""They should have more training materials available that are specific to .NET. We spend a lot of money training our engineers.""If Microsoft would provide a monthly subscription at a cost that a developer can afford then it would be really helpful.""In the next release, I am looking for more advanced technologies such as socket communication and enhanced features like realtime chat with the clients.""The pricing is a bit expensive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cloud and license of the subscription model for IBM BPM can be complex. There are a lot of alternatives to choose from.""It should provide more flexibility to connect with external systems, and there should be in-built services that can be used to integrate with other systems quickly.""The price is quite inflated, and I think that our service contract is per year with monthly fees."

"Do your homework. Consider the partnership program.""The product and support for this solution are free for everyone.""The pricing could be cheaper.""There is a Community Edition that can be used free of charge, but the licensing cost for the Enterprise version is quite high.""If you want to develop an enterprise-level application, you have to purchase the enterprise-level development license.""The Microsoft .NET Framework is free of charge, without licensing cost."
