AppSheet

AppSheet has everything that I've needed for a small, RAD application. Complex calculations, solid record keeping, GeoLocation, Templatized broadcasts of documents and reminders, photo recordation, and so much more. Most of the billing is done by active users, however, you can even set an application to generate its own users, and control access restrictions within it rather than using the multi-user tier of AppSheet's design.

Pega Platform

Pega is great for corporate web apps when a certain work flow or process can be improved through automation or a more stream lined process. It can handle forms and documents really well, integrates well with many different services (including other Pega apps), can handle very complex work flows and logic to basic things like user permissions and notifications. I would say it is less suited for small business needs. I would also say it is not that great at handling media or very interactive screens such as video (something I have personally never seen done).

Pros

AppSheet

  • Ease of use and intuitive framework; can be as easy or as complicated as you need
  • Customization for organization needs
  • Integration with Google Sheets (or other third-party systems) means that viewing and editing data as an administrator is still easy and is reflected in the app

Pega Platform

  • Reusability
  • Pega’s Situational layer cake architecture is capable of organizing application to suit enterprise needs. An enterprise can have a complex organization structure located around the globe. Because of Situational layer cake architecture reusing common policies and procedures is easy while allowing for differences between products, regions, channels and customer segments.Whereas with some application development platforms, separate copies of the application should be created to suite different business context.
  • Faster application delivery
  • With Pega developers can reuse common policies and procedures, replicate functions and industry specific frameworks and utilize pega UI elements to develop applications. IT is easy to deploy.Therefore developers are capable of delivering application earlier compared to some application development platforms. Pega reduces time taken to deliver an outcome.
  • Pega upgrades
  • Pega platform is upddated to adapt and work with latest technologies.
  • Proprietary users support and maintain Pega platform continuously. Pega customer support is always willing to enhance product support.

Cons

AppSheet

  • GPS on the maps are terrible. We dont use the map to collect data as the signal is erratic only in Appsheet. We have another app installed on the same phone to get X,Y data which is copied and pasted into the appsheet solution. We have tried everything but Appsheet map and coordinate accuracy and erratic behaviour is below par.
  • Deployment management. While it is great that people see your changes right away, it sometimes leads to downtime if one makes a mistake. In the beginning it was hard to tell which changes would negatively effect the users and in some cases the data got jumbled due to table changes. Would be good if development, testing and deployment were better streamlined. No need for auto testing (like selenium etc.) just a place we can test before deploying. Now we have several "dev" versions with a cumbersome copy and paste system.

Pega Platform

  • Pega’s Strategic Apps, Cobrowse and OpenSpan offerings appeal to midmarket customers, but Pega is not aggressively promoting Pega 7 and Pega Express as stand-alone iBPMS platforms to the midmarket.
  • Pega doesn't support powerful data or process modeling capabilities as compared to the other tools.
  • Pega doesn't support full extraction, transformation and loading capabilities as offered by other industry-leading tools. Pega support doesn't solve tickets correctly on-time.

I haven't really used their customer support. My understanding is that there is not much support at the "Pro" paid level. Lots of help documentation that you can research yourself. Would be nice to have a person at AppSheet to help walk through some challenges, but likely costs more.

Pega is a great platform but you must be careful to choose an implementation partner that works well with your company culture. Our first implementation partner was not a good fit and we struggled through the first round of deployment until we find two other partners (one for Marketing and another for CRM) who truly understood and worked well with our company.

The online training is an excellent one, but still it is missing hands on development.

Alternatives Considered

AppSheet

We definitely looked at the competitors. I don't even recall what they were because when we hit AppSheet it was SO obvious how capable it was that the others literally disappeared from memory. They key was that ability to near-instantly deploy the kernel of your idea straight from anything from a spreadsheet to a cloud database, and then sit in front of your user the same day and ask, "Now, what would you like to see?"

Pega Platform

Pega offers a business-friendly toolkit for defining applications. Unlike traditional BPM tools, there is much fewer complications, the technical syntax to handle in modeling processes and hardly any hard-coded programming. A well-trained business user can be trusted to create a business application from the Pegasystems BPM framework if desired. Pega also provides "Case Life cycle Management" - which allows any business user to capture and process the full scope of work in their operations, be it document handling, approvals, decision making, etc. These tasks can all be built into a process flow to automate as much as possible. The usage of design-once, the deploy-anywhere user interface has helped in saving a lot of effort.

Return on Investment

AppSheet

  • AppSheet has allowed us to keep attendance records electronically. That in turn allows us to proactively manage waitlists, and thereby get rid of one of the major sources of complaints from our members, about not getting into the courses they want to join. For us, that's a great return on the investment of time we put into creating the system.

Pega Platform

  • With our framework, we have been able to build new applications in 10% of the time/cost. Example, we built an application that took 8 months and 1.2 million k in a traditional .net environment and was able to build a similar application in 60 days for about 100k
  • Collaboration with the designer shaves weeks off the requirements gathering
  • Standard reporting is a launchpad that allows the users to accept the system without waiting for MIS reports to follow application build which often would usually delay use for 60 to 90, but not with Pega
