Effectively automates any business process but needs to be more user-friendly
Pros and Cons
  • "Pega BPM's most valuable features are case management, integration, the convenience of using REST APIs, and the ease of changing things at the UI level."
  • "Pega BPM could be improved by including token-based authentication and extending its integration options."

What is our primary use case?

I use Pega BPM to automate business use cases and integrate third-party application data into applications designed on Pega Platform.

How has it helped my organization?

Previously, our HR onboarding application ran in silos, so everything was happening separately. Pega BPM allowed us to consolidate all the data in one place, from which we could define our business workflow. This means that we have the entire flow running in one application from start to end with the help of third-party application data.

What is most valuable?

Pega BPM's most valuable features are case management, integration, the convenience of using REST APIs, and the ease of changing things at the UI level.

What needs improvement?

Pega BPM could be improved by including token-based authentication and extending its integration options. In the next release, Pega should live up to their claim to be low-code/no-code and make their platform more simple and UI-based.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using Pega BPM for almost two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Pega BPM is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Pega BPM is scalable.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup wasn't complex, but you have to define your class structure and architecture properly. Deployment took around a month. Also, Pega says BPM is low-code/no-code, but that's not true - you need intervention as you can't design the application without some knowledge about it.

What about the implementation team?

We used an in-house team.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pega is expensive. If your company has a good amount of money to spend, go for Pega as it has many things readily available out of the box. But if you're looking to save money, you may be better going for an open-source platform.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I also evaluated WaveMaker, but Pega has features that aren't available on WaveMaker.

What other advice do I have?

Pega BPM is a very good tool if you have the budget to spend on it and you need to automate any business process wherein you get the data from multiple sources. I would rate Pega BPM as six out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
