Find out what your peers are saying about Pega BPM vs. Signavio Process Manager and other solutions. Updated: September 2020.
437,064 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Being able to use a Java-based solution makes the product flexible.
The interface and the number of connectors that they provide are the most valuable features. The support here, it's kind of okay. But the main thing is with the number of connectors and the UI, the user interface.
It has an open BPM
It allows me to present or to demonstrate the business process flow, visually, without having to resort to PowerPoint, Visio, or other products.
The speed and execution of DMN was a big selling point for us. It's very good at conducting business processes that are easily modeled and presented in a way that's easy to understand.
The solution is easily compatible with HTML forms and HTML language programming and that is the most significant part.
When I compare it with other BPM tools, like IBM, it is great, open source, and free when you use the community version.
The most valuable feature is the ability to share the logic within the rules engine with the business, so you can put it up for everybody to read.
The workflow designing and integration are the most valuable features. Also, the UI design was pretty easy.
The solution's case management is its most valuable aspect.
The most valuable feature is flexibility, as we can configure it to best suit our requirements.
The solution offers excellent workflows.
The solution provides us with a very good dashboard.
The most valuable aspect of the solution is the various workflows.
The most valuable feature is the situational layer cake.
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.
Process management/Process governance is what we think Signavio is very good at.
All in all, Signavio usability is excellent. Anyone can learn to use the tool quickly. This increases acceptance as employees are not facing a high learning curve. With the offered usability it is easy to model processes also live in workshops.
We could increase the transparency and speed for the new ERP introduction. The status and changes by the new system are now clear to everybody and it is a great tool to train the people.
As a business transformation suite, Signavio offers a number of integrated helpful tools. The Process Modeler helps with the conceptual work, but is directly integrated with the components of the Workflow Accelerator (Automation) and the Process Intelligence (Mining). This makes Signavio an indispensable service package.
This is one of the best solutions and it is easy to implement.
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.
The collaboration function in the project views is valuable because people can comment on the processes and we can respond.
The most valuable feature is that you can customize it completely with all of the attributes that you need.
The solution could use some enhancements like adding connectors, improving forms and having a mobile app, but everything is an enhancement rather than a flaw.
The support definitely can be improved. Apart from that, the language should be extendable to other platforms. If I want to write, I'll run a different platform, like Python code on top of it, or COBOL code on top of it, and it should support those languages.
Lacking in forms visualization.
If there were some industry templates it would have helped significantly, because it is similar to a process map for a domain. That is what we are currently creating, a domain-relevant process map.
Especially when you use the open-source version, there are issues with performance.
I would also like a very easy to use form builder.
I would like to have a feature for audit logging, audit logs and audit log management. And some history of use for the audit logs.
I would like to see the forms engine available in the open-source version of this solution.
It's called a local platform but on the other hand, it needs a lot of experience. It's not all that easy to click and plug and play. If you really want to use all the features out of this platform, you definitely need a lot of experience and a lot of training to get there.
They are currently spending some time on improving the product with respect to machine learning, especially related to robotic automation. They probably could be a little more adept on that area would help.
It is not fully compatible with all versions of Internet Explorer, so sometimes, it does not work.
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 reporting is too slow and there is a limit of 250 processes.
Moreover, the functionality to show different process variations with "views" could be improved to allow more customization of these views. I believe this would increase the user experience and administrative efforts maintaining these process variations.
There are some small graphical bugs, but they are addressed immediately by Signavio to their product development team.
Signavio already offers a wonderful range of functions. If variant management and customer journeys are optimized, Signavio can definitely bask in the glory of BPM tools. We also see optimization potential in the management of licenses, e.g. no named users but rather floating licenses and integration into the company's active directory.
The licensing model could be better.
The performance metrics appearing in the collaboration hub needs to be improved.
I would like to see the inclusion of some document management functionality so that we don't need to integrate with a second solution to accommodate this.
We would like a better way to give users the correct permissions for processes, whether to view or design.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The open-source version of the product is free to use.
I use the open-source free version.
Camunda is much cheaper.
We are using the open-source version of this solution.
It is less cost-prohibitive than other solutions on the market. This solution was in our price range.
The pricing is pretty good, compared to other similar products.
The price of this solution, including installation and configuration, is comparable to competing vendors.
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.
SaaS has no setup cost, just licensing fees.
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.
