From my perspective you definitely must answer the following questions:
* ARCHITECTURE: Are you willing to set up a single BPM PLATFORM for your company? If so, does it work with your LEGACY systems? Can those systems also provide processes that you will build with the BPM platform? (e.g. Accounting, ERP, ECM, ....)
* PEOPLE: Do you have the right people to set up a new system? Low-Code does not mean that it is no-code and you still need IT experience. You will find a lot of experienced JAVA developers that will help you to run a low-code platform like CAMUNDA. However it will be hard to find experienced PEGA developers that are fluent in Portuguese. If you do not have the skills within your company - you need to recruit them or contract with implementation partners.
* COSTS: You need to think about licence fees, implementation costs, cloud fees, on-premise fees, training, and other operational costs. Some vendors offer cheap licenses during POC phases which turn out to be very expensive for a higher number of users. Also - if you are dependent on external expertise for a longer period of time, this will be very costly at the end. Make sure that you can handle the development by your company asap. Compare the vendors with open source products.

There will be a lot of other aspects as well, but I think it is a good starting point for an evaluation.
