Standardizes and automates business processes for efficiency

What is our primary use case?

Mostly our customers are banks, so they are using BPM and creating processes across different offices within the bank. For example, the solution is used in loan origination. The process is created to help with standardizing the approvals process. The idea is to follow the process from the start of collecting data from the customer until the bank processes the loan that was applied for. This works across different offices in the bank and they need to be efficient when they process the approvals. So most of the banks prefer to use IBM BPM as it is the most capable product in the world currently… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "This product is flexible in its ability to integrate processes and it can be extended and integrated with other software."
  • "The user interface could be improved, and although integration opportunities are good, they could be improved further."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to potential users is that you should not approach working with this product as something you just deploy and forget about. The business process from a business perspective is a continuous process of enhancement. So if you are successful in implementing the software that does not mean that it is the end of the process. It should go on continuously throughout the use of the product and enhancement of business practice, rules, and changes in the business environment. There must be someone to watch the process and to improve it as there is always room for more improvement. I definitely…

Can easily trace where a path has gone but tasks fail without a reason

What is our primary use case?

We use it as the main landing page to allow users to go to other applications. We have built-in applications mainly for planning. We have a few other applications that we direct users from the portals to other dormant pages. IBM BPM is not really meant for either UI you know. The UI looks a bit outdated but we have another application in which we have 2000 plus users using this at the moment, so our user base is big. We have problems with the slowness and the UI and that impacts the user experience for who use it. We've decided to migrate away from this solution.

Pros and Cons

  • "We like the feature in which we can trace back instances."
  • "Sometimes there are tasks that failed without any reason."

What other advice do I have?

It's a good product. It's stable. The support is available to you. If you have the budget and you have a solid developer team that is well versed in the IBM product then you can invest or else you would be in trouble because you need to source out all these resources. Users have high demands. They want to have a single sign-on option and those kinds of things. They want to see less clicking. They want to see all of these features in the web nowadays and our version doesn't have them. I would rate it a five out of ten.

Good UI capabilities and very good speed of delivery but lacks overall stability

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution by leveraging IBM's setup server where we can share different products and applications. We're using it for process automation to automate, for example, application processes in our organization.

Pros and Cons

  • "The UI capabilities of the solution are great. The speed of delivery is good."
  • "The solution lacks acceptable stability."

What other advice do I have?

I'd warn people not to jump into using this or any solution without considering how they'll design their applications for it. Companies need to do their research to implement it the right way. That way, they end up getting the output they are looking for. The design is key. Once you have the design right, the implementation falls into place. Ultimately, people need to follow the right set of policies and guidelines to make the solution effective. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
