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 »

"It has reduced the time taken to go to market. In the past, we were struggling with building these integrations, but now the process has sped up and there is an added advantage of quick delivery. In addition, it is an agent-less solution, which provides more flexibility in terms of multiple options."

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."

More IBM BPM Cons »

"There were a lot of scalability issues that we initially faced. Whenever I tried to deploy 100-200 endpoints, it became a huge challenge. We had to actually start using other tools like Tivoli Endpoint Management in order to patch the issues."

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."
