It is easy to use, easy to understand, easy to implement and easy to enhance and we can do it as a Cloud. Also it is very user friendly.The stability has been good. We haven't had any issues.The interface is quite simple and easy to use, even for beginners.The solution's most valuable feature is its quick setup. Nowhere else you can create a good-looking application this quick. It's a fairly robust system.Powerful, full-featured business process management with excellent supportWhile Pega technical support is okay, it also depends on the issues you need help with and who your contact is with Pega.The most valuable features are case management and integration services.It cuts down the time taken for coding. Earlier it used take for us four hours to do a particular code. Now this can be done in less than 30 minutes. That's the kind of productivity gains you can get.

Cons
It is very flexible because you can design your own main forms, but if there were some templates according to your market, it would be more useful for a new customer. That would make K2 more user friendly and easier to use.I would also like to see the BPM features from Pega implemented, that have to do with the implementation of AI, and the robotics.

Sometimes when we are patching some data from the database, we are getting added as a timeout.The solution would benefit from more integration capabilities.Pega currently is trying to add chatbots to their systems, and it's still quite immature. This part definitely needs to be improved.The pricing model needs to be improved. Right now, it's too expensive.Lack of stronger cloud support is somewhat inconvenient for users and implementation.What should be included is some UI features and maybe some integrations. This includes documentation on how the UI works.The unit testing needs to improve, as well as the user interface.The biggest thing I have seen is when going from one version to another and upgrading to the latest version, it takes a pretty long time for an organization to go through an upgrade process. I think that's an area where they can make it a little smoother.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
May be somewhat more expensive than other solutions initially, but should have enhanced return on investment.The licensing fees are based on the number of users.They have both on-premise and cloud licensing. If you are a small to medium company, go for the cloud option because that eliminates a lot of the setting up of your DevTest and performance environments, multiple environments, because you can buy that from Pega with the cloud option. So your setup time really goes down. If you're a large company, then you're better off putting it within your company. You have other skill resources within your company to create environments.They need to come up with licensing options. Right now they do have a cloud-based option, but the cloud prices I've seen are much more expensive compared to competing products.
