Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The integration capabilities have been very useful.""The workflow engine of K2 is its main strength. Its workflow engine is probably one of the best, and that's the reason why Nintex bought K2. It can clearly handle any complex process or scenario. K2 is almost low-code. It is a no-code or low-code solution. You don't have to read a whole lot of code. It is pretty much GUI based. Their support is also excellent. The biggest advantage of K2 is SmartObjects, which allow you to separate the data from the application. It is a standalone application that allows you to build a data source from different places, which a lot of other applications also do. It is called SmartObjects technology, which is pretty powerful. If I have data from different applications, such as JD and ServiceNow, I can just create a SmartObject based on a data source and use it. I have some forms that have six, seven, or eight applications in a single form with data from different places.""The most valuable features of this solution are that it's no code, it's very flexible, and it's easy to design.""The setup is easy.""K2's best feature is that it can solve complex tasks, issues, and projects with little coding.""K2 is reasonably priced."

"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.""The processor management system is quite fast and scalable. We have 10 developers using this solution and it supports 25,000 users.""One of the most valuable features of Oracle BPM is the workflow itself. It is quite intuitive.""It is easy and cheap."

"Currently, it's taking quite some time to deploy a package, it needs improvement""K2's support for DevOp team corporations is weak.""There have been some glitches, and the workflow fails frequently.""K2 is a workflow solution, and there is no RPA solution with K2. This is where K2 lacks a little bit. It is just a heavy workflow solution. It doesn't have a supplemental product like RPA. If you want to use RPA, you have to use Blue Prism, UIPath, or something else. If you use Nintex, it has an RPA solution. It is a form-based application, and they are doing everything electronically. The initial investment in K2 is heavy because it is a BPM software. It does not have a low cost because they charge you the same for one workflow or 100 workflows.""The Workflow Designer needs improvement.""It's very tedious to manage."

"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.""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.""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."
