Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We find it intuitive and easy to use.""The solution is stable.""There are free online learning and certifications if a user would like to learn more and better understand the solution.""The most valuable features are the integration and UI customization.""It is stable.""You can scale the solution.""The most valuable features are the decorative style, model-driven development, and the fact that Mendix validates flows. Mendix is quick to develop because it's a low-code platform. It's very robust, flexible, open, and scalable. It's for a low-code customer. The tooling is also really good and it has mobile capabilities.""They are leading in the smart manufacturing, and connectivity space."

"In general, we use web services to integrate this solution with our other tools. It is the main approach we use with this solution and it integrates with all tools that we need. If you want to integrate with other solutions such ThreatFire or similar, it is possible as well.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward.""Scalable and stable BPM software with a powerful case management feature. It also has good workflow.""The solution has very helpful technical support.""The solution is operating well overall.""The solution is able to support the size and scale required.""Pega BPM's most valuable feature is the use of CDX to solve problems.""Pega is a local platform that has evolved from a BPM perspective. This allows teams using this solution to address complexities without having deep knowledge in a specific development area."

More Pega BPM Pros →

"You need experienced programmers and developers to understand this solution.""There's no direct tech support.""Mendix is slightly less scalable than I'd like.""There are not enough developers who are using Mendix. The knowledge base available online and in the market is not as rich as other competitors.""It is expensive.""There needs to be an increase in the number of the UI components.""My understanding is that, if you are not using the free version, it is very expensive.""While the community is great, they need to work on making their direct technical support services better."

More Mendix Cons →

"The main problem with Pega is that it is quite complex, so it is very difficult for the developer to learn.""Pega BPM could be improved by including token-based authentication and extending its integration options.""It's called a local platform but on the other hand, it needs a lot of experience. It's not all that easy to click and plug and play. If you really want to use all the features out of this platform, you definitely need a lot of experience and a lot of training to get there.""They are currently spending some time on improving the product with respect to machine learning, especially related to robotic automation. They probably could be a little more adept on that area would help.""Pega's technical support could be better.""The way the IDE works with the chatbox and the taxonomy imports could be a little smoother.""Pega is claiming they're into low code but as per Gartner Magic Quadrant, Pega is not there now.""The local development approach is good in Pega, however, cost-wise, it's getting expensive. That needs to be addressed."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Licensing costs are similar to those for all other IT technology, but they vary by region."
  • "Mendix seems a bit expensive. But in terms of wanting to have less developers and higher velocity, the total cost of ownership is fine. It's not cheap, though."
  • "Mendix is not open source, but its license cost is cheap, particularly when compared to the Appian license. The license model would depend on how many users you have and how many applications you are creating. If you are creating a single app, you just need to have a single app license, so it's free. If you want a multiple app license to cover two thousand or three thousand users, for example, internal users or external users, then you need to pay for the license. There's also a license model for above three thousand or four thousand, or five thousand internal and external users."

  • "It's a user-based license where, as you scale the numbers of users, the price increases."
  • "It is cost-effective for medium enterprises. It is cheaper than ServiceNow."
  • "The solution could be less expensive according to my customers. However, I think the price of the solution is fair."
  • "We mostly have a yearly license."
  • "The price is a bit expensive."
  • "Pricing is good."
  • "The licensing model for Pega BPM needs to be improved."
  • "The licensing is on a yearly basis. Because of our special relationship, all the training certifications are free of cost. All our employees can do Pega certifications at zero cost. It is all on Pega."
