IBM BPM Previous Solutions

My clients that go with IBM usually do so because they have a sense of, if they have problems they have an organization like IBM to complain to. If we try to use open-source, that's usually a problem if it's a relatively big company, something like banking or insurance, they're not going to want that. But the manufacturing companies, they tend not to care as much, and as long as it works they're fine. For banking, they want something that looks a bit like the big-time. View full review »

No solution previously. We've been discussing BPM for a number of years, just looking for the right use case and the right time to do it. When selecting a vendor, typically we look to see if we have strategic partners, strategic relationships with larger vendors, like IBM; if they have the product that meets the requirements. We tend to look at analyst information to say, "Okay, who are the players in this particular space?" We tend to go with that as a starting place, and go from there. If they're someone we're already doing business with, and we have a strategic relationship with them, that will be our first point of reference, and then look at the requirements, can they meet the requirements? We went with IBM largely due to, from what I gather, the requirements, the technology and functionality, were very similar. And we weren't doing business with the other vendors, while IBM, we are.

We used Pega. Pega can be used both as a workflow engine and a process engine. We have our own internally built process engine too, written in Java, but it's more customized to a certain issue and we are not able to scale it out. That's why we looked at Pega and IBM BPM. When looking at vendors - we sell a health platform to our clients, the Blue Cross and Blue Shields of the world - and one of the things we look at is, when we sell a platform, how can we reduce the cost of the platform, to reduce healthcare costs at the end of the day. We keep on evaluating products based on the licensing cost and the cost to run it, the consulting rates for each product. We look at the scalability and stability of the platform too. We also look at what other capabilities there are, the capabilities of the future, and that's one of the reasons we are going towards robotic process-automation, trying to automate some of these mundane tasks that people have to perform manually. Although it is process-oriented, it is still difficult to figure things out across multiple applications. View full review »

Consultant at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
I would say clients prefer to go with IBM, versus competitors, because of the support, and product releases, upgrades or updates or new features that come up very often, in the last couple of years. That has improved compared to two or three years ago. View full review »

Mainly for auditing purposes, and security concerns. That's why we started using the BPM tool. When looking at vendors, we do a PoC with them to find out their support structure, etc. View full review »

Chief Enterprise Architect at a insurance company with 201-500 employees
We tried several solutions, but after testing them out, this is the solution we have used for over ten years. Ten years ago, BPM was not so advanced, but IBM was the best at that time, so we chose IBM because it was a good asset. It was a good strategy to follow. View full review »
Harry Mavrakis

We did not switch solutions. We chose to purchase IBM BPM because it was bundled with the actual RPA program/solution that we decided to purchase. We decided to use Automation Anywhere tool (RPA), and it is was bundled with IBM BPM. View full review »

We were building isolated solutions using SharePoint or other tool. So, it seemed to make a bit more sense to say, “Can we use something that's more of an industry standard tool to utilize?" View full review »
