Agiloft Custom Workflow/BPM

Agiloft is perfect for managing requisitions, linking those requisitions to their appropriate contracts (and getting the contracts directly executed via DocuSign or Adobe), notifications on upcoming renewals, spend tracking, trend analysis, contractor access management and ticket automation, audits, and much more. The tool flexible enough to integrate with other platforms but users need to be made aware of the requirements/limitations of the integrations.

K2

Not well suited for:
- automation of knowledge work (Adaptive/Dynamic Case Management);
- use cases requiring application of very advanced business rules. There is a third party business rules engine that works well with K2 though;
- Java engineers- wanna-be-BPM consultants - K2 is best suited for Business Technologists aka Citizen Developers;
- outsourcing based delivery model - you need to train your onshore people;
- teams and companies that don't want to learn on their own. if you want to outsource your DPA program to a foreign based IT services provider, pick a different vendor;

Well suited for:
- 60-70% of all digital process automation uses cases you will find in your organization;
- department and enterprise-grade process automation applications;
- Citizen Developer adoption;
- integration intensive use cases;
- software teams not afraid to extend K2 with their own code through well-documented APIs;

Pros

  • Ease of use for both end users and administrators
  • Limitless workflow development to automate processes
  • Flexibility to integrate with other software platforms
Carly Cockman profile photo
  • Extremely thorough documentation provides quick paths to self-enablement. Forget BPM consulting vendors that charge you the premium for that secret sauce knowledge required to run their products. K2 is very transparent about their technology.
  • K2 recognizes the fact that Digital Transformation can be a grass roots approach, growing from small projects into larger programs and their licensing model supports such scenarios. Compared to other top-tier vendors from the Forrester and Gartner reports, K2's pricing model is based on solid footing. Their Customer Success team will help you remove roadblocks so common with software implementations. The company stands behind the product.
  • K2 infrastructure has been very reliable so far. Sure, you will run into occasional bugs here and those will require attention, however, the whole platform is designed very well. K2 hosted on Microsoft Azure offers the best of both worlds mix of scalability and feature rich, technical sophistication. Any gaps in product monitoring can be offset through Azure out of the box tools.
  • K2 Sales and Professional Services teams are professional, pleasant to work with, helpful and lack huge egos so often found at other vendors.
  • Quick innovation and constant feedback loop - K2 releases frequent fix packs enhancing their platform very frequently. They listen to their customers.
  • Mature training paths for Citizen Developers and DevOps Pros. Let's face it, the reason why you are rolling out Digital Process Automation is to bring value to your organization vs. drive profits of consulting companies that offer delivery services. K2 offers quick ramp up via multiple training courses that can be tailored to your organization needs. Some training is available online at no charge for folks interested in the self-study model.

Cons

  • We have a history of quick but unhelpful responses from customer support. Fortunately, we are able to work with our implementation specialist when support tickets require escalation. There is a clear eagerness to assist, but the communication from support lacks depth. You have to be extremely specific with your desired resolution.

  • The UI is horrific
  • The SharePoint integration is poor from a development point of view

It was a complete online training with virual machine provided by K2. All the infrastructure was set up before hand. The training material was pretty thorough. The instructor was knowledgeable.
Overall the training program was well designed and planned.

Return on Investment

  • 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.
Carly Cockman profile photo
  • Faster generation of over 60 forms, and since each form had at least more than 2 components that were the same we were able to create only once
  • Quick ROI, after the initial month of installation, configuration and testing, we were off and running and made up our development time and in some cases cut development time
