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

Pros
The solution's most valuable aspect is the fact it is highly configurable. We can do configurations very easily.It gives us the ability to create toolkits and use them across many different applications. It allows us to write things one time, instead of having to write a diary for every single different application. We can write at once and reuse it.The workflow of BAW's automation is handled inside of BPM, so we can see what state it is at and how things are processing through.It has had a positive effect on decision-making in my organization. It helps us with our dispute process.It has integrated UI and deployment models, and it has a deep set of consultant and service provider ecosystem features.One of the most valuable features is the way that they are adapting to the market. Initially, it was doing only workflow. Now it has started bringing all the other components like rules within the workflow and then the integration with RPA.No matter what somebody's technical experience level is, the tool can start adding value immediately. Even if that is just an analyst who doesn't have any technical background, they can use some of these no quote accelerators to get things from ideation to deployment in a matter of minutes.It helps develop applications very quickly. Once clients get used to it and familiar with the methodology, then they don't feel so locked in. It is able to add this element of agility to our clients' software development lifecycle. That is my favorite thing about it: You're not so locked in as you used to be when developing applications.

The most valuable features are those involving decision making, analysis, and anything related to event documents because those processes are related to content as well.Flexible and the ability to divide search screens, and to search for documents. The ECM feature inside the system is great.The client and the IBM content navigation are the solution's most valuable features.The solution is scalable.It provides us the capability of producing b​​usiness processes for documents that are launched immediately when a document comes into the repository.

Cons
The UI of the solution is not good. They should work to update the solution and make it better and fresher.The development UI is sometimes a little slow.Every client is moving to the cloud. We are still a little behind with IBM, but we are catching up from my point of view.I would like to see more streamlined install and provisioning; preferably containerized IBM BPM would be helpful.From what I understand, in the next release they're actually going to combine all of this together as one integrated solution... If we could have one unified way to build a solution, that would really help.I would definitely like to see a unified interface between the BPM side of the house and the case side of the house. Something that just seems a bit more cohesive, because right now there is sort of a disconnect between the BPM and the case side of the house. That makes it a bit of a hard sell sometimes. That is definitely first and foremost on my wish list.The main areas which need improvement are specifically around reporting and analytics.

The interface needs to be more user-friendly.There are some features that could be enhanced like the document viewerComparing the solution with other interfaces, IBM BPM is much better than Case Foundation. They need to make this solution's interface more user-friendly.The service as it currently stands is out-of-date and lacks flexibility.​The place of improvement is merging or combining all of the workflow functionality into one seamless tool. Now, there are multiple installations that are different. Case Foundation, before you can put Case Manager and you've got IBM BPM, and the roadmap is there to merge them altogether. But that's the struggle at the moment, it's having multiple installations and disparate workflow applications.​
