"Pega BPM's most valuable feature is the use of CDX to solve problems.""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.""It is a stable product.""Overall, the ability to integrate with multiple applications and effective case management is the most valuable.""I have a lot of experience in this kind of industry, and Pega is one of the best solutions in terms of performance, capabilities, and the way we develop.""The most valuable feature of Pega BPM is its architecture.""Pega BPM has a full suite for any enterprise.

More Pega BPM Pros →

"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.""Oracle BPM is hard to configure.""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."

More Oracle BPM Cons →

"The solution could be more scalable.""There is a scarcity of resources who have worked with this solution before.""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.""In the next release of Pega BPM, they should add more ways to do the customer interaction fields in the portals.""They need to support the solution better, at this time the company does not have enough support.""Its implementation in the public sector was a bit complex."
