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

Pros
This solution is very stable.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.It helps maintain, and in many instances, lower costs, as well as to maintain those costs, keeping them stable.It continues to keep up with the changing needs of the business. That is the strong value proposition of BPM. It's not a one-time automation.Provides the power to understand and automate processes.Our customers use the solution as a workflow platform to manage their processes.Agility is the key. It gives our customers a faster way to be able to implement processes, get ownership of task, visibility into a process. The ability to modify that process, optimize that process over time, is probably the biggest benefit that they get from the software.

We have more than 800 distinct applications in our IT landscape. We had enough scalability and okay development cycles, and it has been enough to cover our backup operations and order management systems.The benefit from the tool is we can develop it quickly and easily use it for middleware services. We can publish the services so other applications can consume them. This is providing us some reusability and a type of security.It has developmental accelerators, which allow for virtually any customization needs which you may require.The default Workspace does not meet all our needs and sometimes you need to create your own custom Workspace.

Cons
We care about technology and support because support is very important and a BPM is not easy to implement.I would like to see a lot more case studies.The user experience, while it has improved, should continue to improve.The business would like to use the product with a lot less IT and equipment involvement.Better integration with other products in the automation suite.Also, we would like to see integration with artificial intelligence, machine learning-type of technical capabilities. Right now, there are a lot Watson libraries out there. Building those integrations more, out-of-the-box, from IBM would be a good direction.I would like it more documentation during the design phase.We would appreciate more user-friendly definitions of processes with a more user-friendly interface for documenting processes.

It would be good if they could provide some additional connectors or an application developer environment for microservices.It could have easier administration. It takes time to configure and deploy.Their Case Management set of features is severely lacking and should be a target for immediate improvement dealing with unpredictable processes inside of organizations.The default Workspace does not meet all our needs and sometimes you need to create your own custom Workspace.

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 has a low cost to implement. You'll get your money back in the same year that you complete the project.Our customers do see ROI. They'll identify some particularly painful or uncoordinated processes to start with, then build out from there, picking off low hanging fruit.We chose to purchase IBM BPM because it was bundled with the actual RPA program/solution that we decided to purchase. We decided to use Automation Anywhere tool (RPA), and it is was bundled with IBM BPM.It gives us a good return on investment.​We have definitely seen ROI. When we first kicked it off, we said it had to pay for itself within three years, and it did.Starting out with Express can also help reduce the cost for adopting the product.It may be cheaper for organizations to pay for the Viewer licenses that are immediately up and running in the cloud, rather than paying for someone to administer publishing to an intranet.

As with all Oracle products, the licensing over VMware is an issue.
