Pros
"The solution is able to support the size and scale required.""The solution has very helpful technical support.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward.""The case management functionality of this solution has been most valuable.""When our clients automate the KYC and onboarding processes, they can reduce their manual force and then deploy them in much better tasks rather than the mundane activities of selecting forms and gathering information.""The solution is operating well overall.""The ability to define processes, build reports, and get insights or analytics on data is most valuable. It is a powerful platform.""The robotic process automation has increased the confidence of business users."

"It is the best product because of its stability. ActiveMatrix 5.x is highly stable in production, and the downtime is very low. I have worked on a lot of service projects, and the engine is very stable, robust, and scalable. The development and change requests can be pushed quickly, and the mapper activity and SSLT kind of features are also good. It is easy to do changes, testing, and deployment. Its deployment is very easy, and we can automate a lot of scripts for our on-premises solution. I work for an investment bank, and we have automated a lot of processes for our customers. Previously, we used to develop scripts and tools. With version 6.x, everything is moved to Maven and other things. Environment handling is done mostly through DevOps tools. As compared to Mulesoft, the deployment and configuration are very easy in TIBCO.""The scheduling and the calendar are very useful."

Cons
"In the next release of Pega BPM, they should add more ways to do the customer interaction fields in the portals.""We have experienced a few technical challenges, particularly triggering the workflow through file drops and accessing files.""It needs more integration with other platforms.""The local development approach is good in Pega, however, cost-wise, it's getting expensive. That needs to be addressed.""I believe they simplify the application development. It is still complex. The learning is not easy, it takes time compared to other products on the market.""If it could also be integrated with robotics, it could help with a lot of things, even if we don't have APIs, we could still talk to other applications. If it could invoke a bot, for example.""The initial setup takes time.""There is a scarcity of resources who have worked with this solution before."

"Technical support needs to be streamlined.""ActiveMatrix is in the middle field. MuleDB is more on the engineering side with Java and other things. SnapLogic is there are on the higher side with very low coding. TIBCO stays in the middle like IBM or Oracle. TIBCO can move towards IBM's way of doing. IBM has a big market and many varieties of products and good integration, which TIBCO doesn't have. It can have better integration. TIBCO's transition to the cloud is a little slow. As compared to Dell, Boomi, and Mulesoft. TIBCO took the steps a little later. TIBCO's ID was far better and easier to work with previously. TIBCO's 5.x ID was very good, and the development environment and the transition were easy. Version 6.5 onwards, it is a stable product, but it would be good if they can do something similar to version 5.4 with version 6. They should concentrate on this API market. It will give them the strength and the ability to grab the market back."
