Quotes From Members

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."

"This solution has given us a quick time to market, the ability to integrate with the rest of the corporate applications, and the ability to hire talent in low-cost locations.""The Workspace is a full, rich application where most users can find what they want. It shows them a list of their work.""Our company is based around Oracle processes. It provides a lot of flexibility in its processes.""The initial setup is straightforward.""We selected this solution not only for the BPM but for the entire package."

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."

"Existing APIs in the product need to be fine-tuned, made more robust and flexible for adoption.""Overall, the engine and the UI both have to be made lighter.""We have had some issues with version migration, from one version of processes to another. We would have to call Oracle Services but on a day to day, we didn't have any issues.""The solution needs to offer better integration with third-party systems.""From my knowledge of this solution, I don't see that the Oracle BPM includes features such as the growth of discovery and process mining."

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."

"The licensing model is good.""It's pried high, this solution is expensive."
