Cons
The user interface could be improved in a future release.I would like to be able to run and install this solution on different platforms.This product uses the PVU (Processor Value Unit) license model from IBM, and it is something that should be improved.This solution would benefit from improvements to the configuration interface.I would like to see more metered rest and API support. IBM is already working on it on Version 11, but it still needs improvement.To scale virtically, is difficult.IBM does not support orchestration, which is how they designed it, and other BPM tools in the market support orchestration. If they merged the BPM capability into this product, then it would be a better solution.Development toolkit (based on Eclipse) should be improved in terms of responsiveness.
