The most valuable feature is that you can customize it completely with all of the attributes that you need.This solution is innovative and simple to use.This product has helped us to work within standards for process planning.The collaboration hub is good because it allows us to share the models that we've captured and to get comments back, and we don't all have to be in the same room, it can be remote and over time.I love the collaboration function, especially the option to invite people who don't have any users on the licenses.It is possible to do the whole drafting process at the same time in Sagnavio so you don't have a double effort of writing it once, arranging it and entering it again.The features I find most valuable are ease of use and the Collaboration Hub.The GUI is very easy to use, where you can sit together with your colleagues, discuss the process, and during these discussions you can build up the model.

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.

We would like a better way to give users the correct permissions for processes, whether to view or design.I would like to see more integration with the process manager in terms of the workflow accelerator.There is always room for improvement is the capability of integration with other solutions.The performance metrics appearing in the collaboration hub needs to be improved.The user administration, the user-group administration, and the license models need improvement.Part of the product that I think can improve is document control. That's currently not even possible. To work with documents we have something of a workaround using SharePoint.Customized reporting can be improved to make this a more versatile tool.I would like to have the option to select the color of items and subgroups in the glossary because right now it is fixed.

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.

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.

I think we're spending about $150,000 a year on licensing costs.I think that the price of the licenses is between $2,000 USD and $3,000 USD per license per year, plus the hub usage. I cannot remember the exact cost, but it is affordable.My client purchased one editor license and the collaboration hub, which covers up to a hundred people.This solution provides really great value for the money.Lower than the competition with highly flexible licensing plans.
