If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Pega BPM, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

I would like to know the key strengths of Camunda against Pega. 

Does anyone have a case study or program data on moving to Camunda from Pega?

What sort of return did you see or how did you justify the investment or move to Camunda?
