Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The best part of Pega, for me, is that they let you reuse a lot of the aspects in the product.""The workflows are the most valuable features, particularly for us, because we were attempting to automate processes by utilizing workflows to provide a hands-off comparison between the bot and the human.""The robotic process automation has increased the confidence of business users.""It is quite configurable, which is the most exciting feature. We can easily configure it as per our needs.""There is a feature to accelerate the development so that business analysts can directly create their user stories and assign the task to the developers.""It's a good tool for workflow automation.""The solution has very helpful technical support.""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."

Cons
"There is a scarcity of resources who have worked with this solution before.""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.""Pega BPM could be improved by including token-based authentication and extending its integration options.""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.""Currently, there isn't any feature I want to be added in the next release of Pega BPM because Pega always adds new features that my team welcomes and looks forward to learning. One area for improvement in the solution is the long learning curve, but after that, you'll find Pega BPM easy to use.""The local development approach is good in Pega, however, cost-wise, it's getting expensive. That needs to be addressed.""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."

More Pega BPM Cons →

"When you're developing database-type applications, there is no way to see the actual database tables. They call them forms, and I don't like that. Zoho should also provide better user guides.""They should allow for more UI customization."
