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

Pros
The most valuable feature is the simple data connectivity components.The initial setup was very easy.There are a lot of different applications; you can connect PowerApps, or Flow, or Power BI to many different types of applications to interchange data.It's a very workable solution because it's an automated way of making applications. You have a template, you have the application know-how,I can have a SharePoint list and connect with users through PowerApps to present the information.

Cons
Integration with databases and other tools needs to be improved.I have always felt that you need an IT background to use this solution.The solution is evolving very fast and every month new features are introduced. Sometimes it's difficult to catch up with all the evolution that's happening. I had to focus on Power BI for a while and left PowerApps at the side for a couple of months and when I came back, it had changed its interface and moved components around.The product could be improved by making it a production application and enabling the export of apps.The editor in the Web browser could be improved because it can be difficult to implement the commands in the buttons.

There are some UX shortcomings within the solution. However, it's my understanding that they have addressed them and in the next three months they will come out with a new updated version. They will be moving away from HTML5.From a technical point of view, it would be helpful to have some advanced analytics to help with configuration. We have a lot of unwanted features and it would be good to configure it more appropriately so that we are using just exactly what we need.We need more light retail BPM tools within the Pega system. However, Pega is mostly for big companies.Compared to other BPM products, the interface is somewhat complex, so the usability could be improved.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.
