Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The monitoring is one of the greatest features in Process Orchestration because it is user-friendly and easy for somebody who is not experienced.""The solution provides very good and central logging systems. It offers high flexibility with vertical and horizontal extend capacity.""The product has good technical support but you usually will not need it because it is quite stable.""The initial setup is easy.""The most valuable feature is the seamless integration with backend systems.""Great monitoring tools and has its own alert framework.""The standard adapter with EBA abilities is the most valuable feature. It has good process integration.""With the latest version what I find to be the most valuable are the REST, SuccessFactors, and Ariba Network adapters."

"We can arrange data caching and look at the solid state. Also, the API gateway is a very good component that can handle relevant cachings and integrations, as well as and also load permitting.""A product with good API and EDI components.""All of the components are very independent but are tied together to give the business value.""The most valuable feature is stability.""The tool is very powerful and user-friendly.""The solution has a very comprehensive and versatile set of connectors. I've been able to utilize it for multiple, different mechanisms. We do a lot of SaaS and we do have IoT devices and the solution is comprehensive in those areas.""One [of the most valuable features] is the webMethods Designer. That helps our developers develop on their own. It's very intuitive for design. It helps our developers to speed the development of services for the integrations.""Application integrations are offered out-of-the-box, and that is extremely important to us. This is one of the main use cases that we have for it. It is about 60 to 70 percent of the workload in our application today."

Cons
"The responsiveness of technical support needs to be improved.""In terms of technical support, it would be helpful if they handled the tickets a bit faster when queries are sent to them.""The monitoring governance offered by SAP is too technical and needs to be geared more toward business users.""It does not have all of the industry-standard solutions available in PO and it is not plug and play, so we have to do a lot of development.""The older version of the solution will no longer be supported.""The cloud capability features need improvement.""I feel that support is an area that needs improvement. They need to improve the response time and address the customer's issues as soon as possible.""The usability is an area where it can be improved upon."

"We need more dashboards and reporting engines that can provide detailed information for management. In short, we need better analytics.""The interface needs some work. It is not very user-friendly.""The price should be reduced to make it more affordable.""Technical support is an area where they can improve.""I would like to have a dashboard where I can see all of the communication between components and the configuration.""The logging capability has room for improvement. That way, we could keep a history of all the transactions. It would be helpful to be able to get to that without having to build a standalone solution to do so.""The solution has big instances when deployed under microservices or in a containerized platform. They need to improve that so that it is competitive with other integration solutions, like Redis and Kafka. Deployments under microservices with those solutions are much more lightweight, in the size of the runtime itself, compared with Software AG.""Upgrades are complex. They typically take about five months from start to finish. There are many packages that plug into webMethods Integration Server, which is the central point for a vast majority of the transactions at my organization. Anytime we are upgrading that, there are complexities within each component that we must understand. That makes any upgrade very cumbersome and complicated. That has been my experience at this company. Because there are many different business units that we are touching, there are so many different components that we are touching. The amount of READMEs that you have to go through takes some time."

Pricing and Cost Advice

More SAP Process Orchestration Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is expensive, but we reached a good agreement with the company. It is still a little bit expensive, but we got a better deal than the previous one.""The pricing and licensing costs for webMethods are very high, which is the only reason that we might switch to another product.""The vendor is flexible with respect to pricing.""This is an expensive product and we may replace it with something more reasonably priced.""It's a good deal for the money that we pay.""Currently, the licensing solution for this product is pretty straightforward. The way that Software AG has moved in their licensing agreements is very understandable. It is very easy for you to see where things land. Like most vendors today, they are transaction based. Therefore, just having a good understanding of how many transactions that you are doing a year would be very wise. Luckily, there are opportunities to work with the vendor to get a good understanding of how many transactions you have and what is the right limit for you to fall under."
