We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The documentation capabilities are very good. Very structured documents and process versions are valuable features, and being able to communicate that to our customers is also a very good feature. It has a good balance between the effort and the result. So, you don't need to be too detailed. You can document while you are modeling, which is a very good feature.""The initial setup is super simple.""Very, very stable.""The ability to write our own code inside each activity is beneficial. Sometimes we need to create functionality that doesn't come out of the box, and this allows us to do that.""I like that Bizagi is fully compatible with BPMN 2.0. It also eases the way in which we work with BPMN 2.0 itself, which is a comprehensive and rather complex notation standard.""In Bizagi, all of the features are valuable.""What I find most valuable is the flexibility, I find it very easy to use and very flexible for my purpose. I can use it without any particular problem, and it's very intuitive and easy to understand.""With the appropriate governance framework, properly trained business analysts can be empowered to design and build business solutions themselves."

"OutSystems is easy to use.""The product is mostly stable.""The scratch coding is useful. The solution is easy to understand.""It is easy to use.""The most valuable feature of OutSystems is the drag and drop and toolchains in the small AI developing environment. Additionally, the documentation is helpful.""The technical support is perfect.""The flow editor is the most valuable feature. It is simple and intuitive, and it can guide you step-by-step.""The visual program of OutSystems is one of the major advantages of this solution."

Cons
"We have migrated to the cloud, but there are a lot of issues while integrating with the cloud. There are a lot of things to improve with the cloud and reporting. We were previously working with on-premise solutions, and we had access to a lot of things, but with the cloud, they changed a lot of functionalities. Some of the things we know, but with some of the things, we are having difficulties.""Bizagi doesn't have integrations with other solutions, such as ERP systems. In the industry and your company, you have a lot of systems with which you need to integrate, but Bizagi doesn't have such integrations, which makes it very difficult. Its scalability can also be improved. It is good for a startup, but when you need something more complex, it is not good.""In business process mapping, you have pools and dark pools. I don't see that Bizagi differentiates between a regular pool and a dark pool.""For very large projects and deployments, the automated "One Click" deployment wizard can sometimes take a long time to complete.""I don't know if it's a problem with my operating system or a Bizagi problem, but many times I see that when I try to connect different activities, they show up as not connected.""Its performance needs to be improved. The main thing is that it is limited, especially in terms of the response times. When the processes become a bit large, it is very awkward to work with the Bizagi modeler. When you have already modeled but start to rearrange, it is quite a bit of an effort to change the stuff. When you rearrange lanes or have new structures, it goes rather squiggly up and down and so on, which could be improved. The visual outputs of the DIREPs of the process models are pixelated and have a bad image quality. It is a PNG or JPEG, and you cannot export it as a PDF. When you have rather large processes, you should be able to arrange them hierarchically. Currently, it is not supported. If you use sub-processes and inflate a process, suddenly the arrangement is totally different, and although you know the process, you have to look where is it now. You need a good understanding of the levels of your processes before you start in Bizagi. It can have automatic support for optimal presentation. In BPM, you should have it from the top left to the bottom right. However, in most cases, people don't know how they should arrange it. Therefore, it would be nice to have a suggestion system for different arrangements to be able to better present the process.""The solution's interface could be a bit more user-friendly and I would like to see more integrations with other Office products, not just Office 365.""Its price can be improved. The price is high for the application as well as for maintaining and developing applications. When you develop, for example, a BPM, you need to pay a lot for Bizagi."

More Bizagi Cons →

"The tutorials for the solution should be updated.""Since we first started using OutSystems, they switched their language support from Java and .NET to .NET only, which was a bit of a surprise. Their language support could be better in this sense, although on our resource side it is now a bit more flexible.""The PDD framework can't be used for the behavioral-driven development way of working.""The documentation needs to be more robust.""We had some lagging issues under high data loads, and the solution needed to be customized to improve this.""The dashboards in OutSystems could improve. There are a lot of tabs in the service center that can be confusing.""We'd like OutSystems to add stronger workflow-based automation similar to what Appian offers. It needs more workflow modeling and RPA features.""There are not enough resources on the market."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It has a very high price. Many clients complain about the price for maintaining the application on Bizagi."
  • "Make sure that your requirements are explicitly defined from the outset. This will help you choose the right setup and licensing for your needs."
  • "It is expensive."
  • "It is not expensive."
  • "We didn't use the licensed versions where you could exactly go into automatization. However, we looked at the pricing in the beginning, and the only thing that I remember is that it was too expensive for the things we were using because our clients would also have to license the product. One client said that it was too expensive for the benefit they get out of it."
  • "I'm trying the free unlimited version with unlimited use. But you have to pay to add some features."
  • "Some solutions are completely free. One would be the business process diagramming tool, the server beneath it, and the automation tool. You don't need to pay to map the business process, but you would need to when you want to execute any of the commands. So, basically, they lure you in with a free ride, and when you want to scale the solution, you'll have to pay for it."
  • "I used to be very pleased with the pricing. Now, it's a bit more complicated. I don't remember exactly, however, it might be $10 a month per user."
  • More Bizagi Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "I think the pricing for OutSystems is comparable with similar solutions. I would place it somewhere in the middle. We pay for the bundle and don't pay anything extra in terms of licensing and other fees."
  • "The subscription is billed on a yearly basis."
  • "I believe they are very strict with their pricing platforms, or the pricing policies, and it changes."
  • "For one developer to use, the cost is around $5,000."
  • "It's not cheap. It's pretty expensive."
  • "The price is okay. OutSystems isn't expensive. It's a mid-range solution."
  • "There is a free trial to use this solution and other options available, such as enterprise. There are different subscription plans."
  • "I believe they have two pricing options. One is approximately $4000 USD a year and the other is approximately $10,000 USD a year."
