Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The best feature is scalability, which allows you to target potential clients worldwide by connecting the application to a local server. This makes the application readily accessible, and the response time will be much better.""I like that it's a ready-to-use, out-of-the-box solution that provides all of the necessary functions for customers, such as codes that can be quickly switched from the production version, or from test and DEV versions to production.""Azure data factory is a good tool.""It's a platform as a service, so we don't have to manage the infrastructure to hold the websites.""The technical support from Microsoft Azure App Service is good.""Debugging using Application Insights is a valuable feature."

"The ability to define processes, build reports, and get insights or analytics on data is most valuable. It is a powerful platform.""Pega BPM's most valuable feature is the use of CDX to solve problems.""It is quite configurable, which is the most exciting feature. We can easily configure it as per our needs.""The solution is able to support the size and scale required.""The solution has very helpful technical support.""The technical support of Pega BPM is very good.""The solution's case management is its most valuable aspect.""Can do a lot of things with minimum time and cost."

Cons
"Lacking somewhat in template data flows.""The logging and monitoring could improve in Microsoft Azure App Service.""The solution needs better integration capabilities on the network side.""It would be fantastic if Microsoft morphed after my exit service, removing it from subscriptions and moving it to different regions, especially for that service.""If you're on the cloud, you just get a web interface without much detail for additional configuration or the authority to configure the root or system-level configuration.""Initially, there were some rare instances when the server went down because it was deployed on Linux."

More Microsoft Azure App Service Cons →

"The solution could be more scalable.""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.""The way the IDE works with the chatbox and the taxonomy imports could be a little smoother.""In the next release of Pega BPM, they should add more ways to do the customer interaction fields in the portals.""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 BPM could be improved by including token-based authentication and extending its integration options.""First-time customers will find its licensing tricky. The technical support team for this solution could be faster in resolving tickets.""This is an expensive solution."
