Agiloft Custom Workflow/BPM

Originally we used it as a guide for a workflow and it was amazing. As I stated earlier, we currently use it to decimate status based on tasks, great. We tried to use it as more of a Project Management platform and it wasn't really the best, but it isn't made for that either. Then again, using Microsoft Project can be linked to it to communicate the milestones.

Drools

As an open source rule engine and product suite, Drools is well suited for the small and middle scale business to manage and integrate the rules to build the rule-driven system which can process the business-critical data and events to produce the automated decision. It is better to use Drools in the well-secured environment (back-end behind the DMZ), not putting it on the customer-facing front or exposing it directly the to public where may bring direct security risk in the enterprise environment. Drools still needs a lot hardening on the security side.

Pros

Agiloft Custom Workflow/BPM

  • Ease of use for both end users and administrators
  • Limitless workflow development to automate processes
  • Flexibility to integrate with other software platforms

Drools

  • We started using the Drools since its early open source version, now Drools has grown to one application suite. We are majorly using the rule engine core Expert. It is very well integrated with our corporate programming language standard - java.
  • We also use Fusion to write rules about events that occur over time, which enhance our capability of dealing with static data and dynamic events for some complex business environment. Also, we like the fact that Fusion fully implements all first-order logic operators, which helps us deal with CEP very well.
  • The new editor UI Guvnor has been improved a lot and the optimization module Solver does a good job to "compile" complex rule flows to gain more performance.

Cons

Agiloft Custom Workflow/BPM

  • Reporting - If reporting is important, you may consider another platform like Tableau which can be fed from Agiloft
  • Sorry, just reporting
Craig Rosenblum | TrustRadius Reviewer

Drools

  • Fusion doesn't support persistence of working memory, which brings some extra high availability risk to our business.
  • Guvnor still has a lot room to be implemented, it is not so user-friendly for non-technical people, so a lot of business users complain it is hard to master.
  • Rule execution server doesn't even have JMX implemented, hard to be monitored.
  • Drools is still lacking support for key Web services standards.

As with our brains, we only use 10% of its capability. It can be as complex as you want it to be or as simple. The training requirements to use it have been minimal depending on the application. This is really a reflection as to how the workflow was configured

Alternatives Considered

Agiloft Custom Workflow/BPM

We evaluated a couple of products and found that they were either unable to create the workflow that we needed and lacked support. But to be fair, we evaluated the previous generation of Intellect.

Drools

OpenRules provides the non-technical Excel way for a business user to easily modify and manage the rules. Sometimes we found Drools is a little bit overkill for some small and quick projects and we found Roolie is a not bad option as Drools alternative.

Return on Investment

Agiloft Custom Workflow/BPM

  • Agiloft has streamlined the requisitioning process and eliminated manual effort and repetitive low-value tasks.
  • We now have a single source of truth for our SOC audits.

Drools

  • The IT department quickly adopted Drools as it is a very good java-based rule engine, which saves a lot of time to meet the project timeline and balanced our business requirements.
  • Recently we start considering the OpenRules, which may be more business user-friendly.
