We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The technical support of Pega BPM is very good.""Application development is very rapid. A lot of code gets reused while building the applications, which is something we highly appreciate.""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.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward.""It is quite configurable, which is the most exciting feature. We can easily configure it as per our needs.""It is a stable product.""Can do a lot of things with minimum time and cost.""The solution has very helpful technical support."

"The solution was easy to install.""The most crucial feature of vCenter is its scalability. We can use it to expand our network, so we don't have to report our client devices. The network configuration features are also helpful because we can migrate entire networks.""If I need to do DR, VMware can enable me to use vMotion, which requires use of vCenter. You cannot do vMotion without vCenter. We do a lot of automation, orchestration, and simplification for that purpose.""It is very stable. I have been using vCenter Orchestrator from version three now to six plus.""The product's integration is good, it works well with other programs and solutions.""The solution is pretty stable and reliable.""vCenter Orchestrator is very reliable and stable.""We have excellent technical support. They have always been helpful when we have needed them."

"The main problem with Pega is that it is quite complex, so it is very difficult for the developer to learn.""To learn Pega, you need to be a partner. If someone just wants to learn Pega for the sake of learning, they won't be able to do so as they don't give access to that.""One of the areas of this solution that could be improved would be to advance the low code features of the application itself. We would also like to use the same platform to build any application, even if it is not necessarily defined as a functionality needed by a BPM.""Reporting is not so clear and not so great. We really struggle to get the right reporting. When we need reporting based on the content of the tickets, we are not able to get it. The MIS reporting is not great. That's one of the reasons why we are switching to ServiceNow. Its compatibility with the higher versions of Internet Explorer should be improved. It really works well in Mozilla Firefox or any other browser, but when it comes to Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer, sometimes, the layout gets disturbed. The positioning of the buttons changes, and there is some distortion in the layout. I am not sure whether it is our configuration problem or Pega's, but when it is working in Mozilla Firefox, it should also work in Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer.""Pega BPM could be improved by including token-based authentication and extending its integration options.""They need to support the solution better, at this time the company does not have enough support.""We have experienced a few technical challenges, particularly triggering the workflow through file drops and accessing files.""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."

More Pega BPM Cons →

"I would like to have an interface that can manage both on-premises and cloud solutions from a single console, where we can easily manage the resources that are being used or at least applications. Whereby clicking here and there from on-premises to cloud, or cloud to on-premises, depending on the requirements. If that can be accomplished, it will be extremely beneficial.""VMware tools would benefit from more automation. When installing our devices and servers, we often need to install the VMware tools manually. This process should be automated during the VM installation process.""I believe a transparent view and better terms of condition between Oracle and vCenter Orchestrator would be helpful.""There can be compatibility issues.""I did not do the initial setup. However, it was complex at the beginning.""Many times, customers' licenses are not used because the client is not aware of the features and the product benefits. When somebody is buying a product, they just do a default configuration.""I would like to see better performance.""The price of this product is high and could be improved."

  • "We provide the VMware solution to our clients, for which they pay a perpetual license."
  • "The concept of hyper-convergence is smart. I don't know if it can be applied with less cost to be more affordable for small or medium-sized companies. The cost is a very important factor for it. We are currently depending on SAN storage. However, the hyper-converged solutions are depending on the storage within the hosts, such as vSAN in the VMware. It is a smart solution."
  • "We pay a yearly fee, based on our entries."
  • "The licensing module is somewhat complex. Calculating the cost is complicated. Many of our clients are unclear about the billing system and the traffic metering."
  • "The licensing cost is manageable because they have different versions available, standard, essential, and advanced."
