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.

Where webMethods Business Process Management Suite (BPMS) is well suited is for any use case where there is a business process that can executed over a long period of time (days rather than seconds) and that traverses multiple business applications and/or multiple lines of business and requires manual input from end users to approve or action specific steps. It is not well-suited for any business processes that can be distilled into a traditional integration solution between business applications that does not involve manual end user input, these types of uses cases will execute more efficiently on a traditional integration broker or enterprise service bus style solution.

Usability
Agiloft
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

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.

We found webMethods Business Process Management Suite (BPMS) to be the most feature complete product in the BPM market when we evaluated it against other products available in the market. It provides the most features, the easiest to use process design and simulation tools, and the most efficient runtime process and rules engine. Just be aware that its pricing reflects this position in the market, but you get what you pay for.

Return on Investment

  • Initial adoption of BPMS was slow and required buy in from the business, which was only achieved through upper management buy in applying KPIs down the line
  • Once a critical mass of business processes being automated with BPMS is reached, any processes that remain manual will stand out like a sore thumb and the business will be invested to automate those remaining processes too, so adoption of BPMS is like a slow snowball effect
  • Not requiring technical resources such as developer to design and build out processes is a pipe dream and impossible to realise. You will always need experts in the automation tools you apply in your organisation, and webMethods BPMS is no exception
