Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"One of the most valuable features of Oracle BPM is the workflow itself. It is quite intuitive.""We selected this solution not only for the BPM but for the entire package."

"The solution's ease-of-use is its most valuable feature, in which complex issues may be resolved.""Operationally, I consider the solution to be quite good.""The comprehensiveness and depth of Integration Servers' connectors to packaged apps and custom apps is unlimited. They have a connector for everything. If they don't, you can build it yourself. Or oftentimes, if there is value for other customers as well, you can talk with webMethods about creating a new adapter for you.""All of the components are very independent but are tied together to give the business value.""The Software AG Designer has been great. It's very intuitive.""The most valuable feature is stability.""The ease of mapping... is the single largest feature. It gives us the ability to craft anything. A lot of single-purpose technologies, like Mirth, are good for healthcare messages, but we use webMethods not only for healthcare messages but for other business-related purposes, like integrations to Salesforce or integrations to Office 365. It's multi-purpose nature is very strong.""It's a visual tool, so our transformations can be quickly implemented without a lot of fuss. The fact that we have an easy way to expose REST services is also very interesting. It offers the possibility to connect over GMS to synchronize message brokers."

Cons
"From my knowledge of this solution, I don't see that the Oracle BPM includes features such as the growth of discovery and process mining.""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 has big instances when deployed under microservices or in a containerized platform. They need to improve that so that it is competitive with other integration solutions, like Redis and Kafka. Deployments under microservices with those solutions are much more lightweight, in the size of the runtime itself, compared with Software AG.""The installation process should be simplified for first time users and be made more user-friendly.""The UI for the admin console is very old. It hasn't been updated for years and is pretty much the same one that we started with. This is something that could be refreshed and made more modern.""It would be nice if they had a change management system offering. We built our own deployer application because the one built into webMethods couldn't enforce change management rules. Integration into a change management system, along with the version control system, would be a good offering; it's something that they're lacking.""I would like to see the price improve.""Technical support is an area where they can improve.""There should be better logging, or a better dashboard, to allow you to see see the logs of the services.""I would like to have a dashboard where I can see all of the communication between components and the configuration."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's pried high, this solution is expensive."
  • "The licensing for this product is very costly. We pay for a yearly license to use Oracle BPM."
  • More Oracle BPM Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing and licensing costs for webMethods are very high, which is the only reason that we might switch to another product."
  • "The vendor is flexible with respect to pricing."
  • "This is an expensive product and we may replace it with something more reasonably priced."
  • "It's a good deal for the money that we pay."
  • "Currently, the licensing solution for this product is pretty straightforward. The way that Software AG has moved in their licensing agreements is very understandable. It is very easy for you to see where things land. Like most vendors today, they are transaction based. Therefore, just having a good understanding of how many transactions that you are doing a year would be very wise. Luckily, there are opportunities to work with the vendor to get a good understanding of how many transactions you have and what is the right limit for you to fall under."
  • "Pricing is the number-one downfall. It's too expensive. They could make more money by dropping the price in half and getting more customers. It's the best product there is, but it's too expensive."
  • "I do think webMethods is coming under increasing pressure when it comes to their price-to-feature value proposition. It's probably the single biggest strategic risk they have. They're very expensive in their industry. They've been raising the price recently, especially when compared with their competitors."
  • "The price is a little bit high, especially regarding their support."

    Top Answer: 
    I don't think webMethods is the cheapest but I think the quality is worth it. But it's not cheap. We're satisfied with our choice and the price is not a reason to look for something else.
    Top Answer: 
    In terms of improvement, it would be better if it adapted quicker to open standards. It took a while for API specification before the last version was available. The spec of version two was rather… more »
