We performed a comparison between Appian and Oracle BPM based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Business Process Management (BPM) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"It's a stable product."
"Appian's most valuable features are the quick time it takes to develop for the market. It's easy and faster than other BPM solutions."
"The low code functionality and being able to get applications faster to customers or to the market are valuable."
"Appian helps you do a lot of things. It's easy to configure and build an application platform, and it offers a lot of features that you find in an RPA solution. It's flexible so you can reuse it for a variety of use cases."
"It is really simple to create a new app, and I like the data-centric aspect of the BPM tool."
"The initial setup was seamless. We didn't run into any hardships at all."
"The solution has a lot of strong features for the financial industry, it is very easy to use."
"Appian's most valuable feature is that we can create end-to-end process workflows with minimum turnaround."
"What I found most valuable in Oracle BPM is that it has a lot of out-of-the-box integrations. The solution also provides a lot of adapters which is very helpful."
"One of the most valuable features of Oracle BPM is the workflow itself. It is quite intuitive."
"It is easy and cheap."
"The processor management system is quite fast and scalable. We have 10 developers using this solution and it supports 25,000 users."
"The solution could improve robotic process automation."
"One room for improvement is the ease of UI UX development, like in OutSystems and Mendix."
"Lacks business rules management as part of the solution."
"I would like to see more complete university tools. For example, with UiPath, I have had a good experience related to a free course in order to provide some users some different levels of knowledge. This extra training helps users not only use the solution but to develop further within the tool."
"We have clients that want to use Office 365, Microsoft Analytics, and Power Apps. Appian just isn't the same as using something specifically designed to cater to the Microsoft Suite."
"The performance is pretty good, but the distortions need to be optimized in order for it to work well."
"The tool itself is pretty good, but the main area that we struggled with was the backend. The frontend development is really good, but the backend modeling can be streamlined a little bit. There are good integrations, but tying them through the data layer and then up into the frontend could be improved a little bit. It does read/write on the data source, and you can configure it to just write or just read, but there is a little bit of work involved."
"The ability of the interface to load automatic data is not great."
"Oracle BPM could probably be improved with respect to the cost. When you are using this product, it'll be a bit costlier for the ROA. I think they should do some discounts on these products, especially for the licenses."
"Oracle BPM is hard to configure."
"Though Oracle BPM is a stable solution, it's very heavy, so this is one area for improvement. If Oracle can make the components of Oracle BPM lighter, and if the deployment for the solution could be easier, that would make Oracle BPM better."
"Every time we roll out a new version of processes, we have to migrate to a new process. The process of this migration was not very smooth. We later decided that it would be easier for us to stop all processes, deploy a new version and then restart."
