AgilePoint NX

If you have a lot of different systems and software AgilePoint can likely tie it all together and make communicating a lot easier. It is well suited for those that use SharePoint or SQL databases. AgilePoint's ability to connect with the different database types makes it really easy to implement applications.

K2 Platform

Just like any product, you need to make sure the product is solving the business use case and is the appropriate solution to the problem. K2 Blackpearl is for manual-centric workflows where work items are assigned to individuals (not queues) and immediate response on a work item assignment should not be guaranteed. It is not a form-based workflow or a synchronous work process - it needs to be used to manage the work of individuals on a per-work item basis when inventory, visibility, traceability/auditing, and system interoperability is required. For Smart Forms, like any forms modeling tools, the Data Capture and Presentation needs to be a concise, simple, and relatively basic validation. Like any Forms Automation tools or Forms Modeling tools, when you need to start verifying your claim number to a source of truth, your invoice to an invoicing system, and the complexity increases, you need to be smart with the product chosen and think through vision/strategy on how long the life span of your application is vs. the amount of build time to build.

Pros

  • Flexibility
  • Connectivity
  • User Experience

  • K2 BlackPearl provides better versioning of processes than other BPM products I have used. Because of the feature-rich capabilities available being built on the MS Workflow framework, you can ultimately reach the level of code customization you need - but also leverage the tooling and code automating features of K2.
  • Its level of extensibility is fantastic. To say it is extensible and interoperable means a lot, because a lot of products SAY you can extend a feature, but it requires ripping out the kitchen of the house. K2 Blackpearl doesn't require kitchen replacement... you can upgrade the sink, replace the cabinetry, and extend pretty much everything. I have not run into a situation in the 6 years of using the product that I could NOT customize/extend a capability.
  • K2 Blackpearl's physical architecture options are plentiful. If you understand the product components and the granularity of the specific business need, you can provide an accurate blueprint installation of the product initially, and adapt or scale the product capabilities with relative ease via configuration and distributed options. They even offer training on physical infrastructure deployments if you are concerned about future use or growth.

  • Infinate Loops

  • Because it can be used as an integration platform, debugging and problem resolution can be cumbersome. If there was a way to spin up an environment isolated to a local sandbox it would be hugely beneficial vs. a full blown development or quality assurance environment.
  • Features to support complex form building capabilities are not as advanced as other BPM products. Something to consider when evaluating your business use case.
  • Because the platform is rather large, when trying to get support for a specific issue, it can take some additional clarification and patience with support in getting the correct skilled resource to help you with your problem.

K2 Blackpearl implementation requires heavy investments. The initial learning curve is steep, but once the resources/developers/power users are comfortable with it, it provides lot of amazing features/options for business.
