The Workspace is a full, rich application where most users can find what they want. It shows them a list of their work.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.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.

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.

Overall, the engine and the UI both have to be made lighter.Existing APIs in the product need to be fine-tuned, made more robust and flexible for adoption.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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 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.
