TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM Room for Improvement

The BPM setup could offer more options. The connectivity right now is poor because not a lot of protocols are supported. So, we had some trouble setting up a proper BPM connection to access cloud data. BPM ActiveMatrix integrates with TCI and we are using both, so from an integration standpoint, it ended up being a good solution for us. The user interface for the BPM is quite average. It's a drag-and-drop interface so you can very quickly build workflows for users. But the functionality is a bit average in that you only have drag-and-drop and no real ability to customize for more difficult tasks. The ability to write code would help. It's okay in many cases to have something that is drag and drop because it is simple. I have a data model and I can connect the data model to our data source. I build my user interfaces in a drag and drop way, so it's quite simple. It's also simple to deliver to mobile tablets and so on. But sometimes things are not so simple and you need to write some code to make some specific adjustments not covered by the drag and drop components. In that case, we are forced to use the TCI and there are many more steps to transform source data into data delivered by the interface. So, if you can code directly in the BPM, some things that are a little bit more complex would be possible. That would make it a better tool. View full review »

I'd like to be able to see into the development area of this product, and not just the administration. I'd like to see some of the development features. The solution could offer better integration capabilities. View full review »
