ARIS

ARIS is well suited when we want to understand the interrelationship between different processes and their decencies on systems etc. It allows to create an integrated view with easy navigation from one process to another and allows to add information like metrics, risks, cycle time, FTE, etc. Overall, it is a great tool for modeling and analysis.Though it offers BPMN notation, it has limited compatibility with some other tools, hence if the objective is to implement these processes using tools like PEGA then is it not suitable. Further, it is very high priced, so for basic modeling, it might give the right ROI.

Nintex Process Platform

It allows for [the] quick creation of forms to collect data/information.If you need to collect lots of data and do analysis it can be difficult as errors will happen and there is not debugger. However, the forms themselves can be very complicated and put together quickly as long as you step through them carefully.

Cons

ARIS

  • Defining databases, use of entities and relationship diagrams, define data, like data models, there is still a part they could improve.
  • Providing more standard reports and improving on access rights and privileges functionality

Nintex Process Platform

  • Confusion can occur between site collection and local site workflows, UDAs, and settings. Would be nice to have a clearer indication of where you need to go to make certain types of changes.
  • Licensing configuration for the product and management of its many services can be hard for some owners. Issues sometimes arise simply because one outlier Nintex service decided to stop working and it isn't completely obvious during troubleshooting.
  • Database logging for every workflow action (turned on by default) can quickly fill up limited space an organization may have. Ensure you have the proper infrastructure to handle the load.
  • Limits and confusions in how licensing works can lead to a lot of excess to get what you need. Would be nicer to have the older licensing options returned.

We are currently investigating which collaboration platform best suits our needs. Chances are that we move to SharePoint Online and then we're going to also consider the microsoft power platform (power automate and power apps) to develop forms and workflows.Aspecially the pricing model for the cloud is currently a blocking factor to go for the Nintex solution in the Cloud.

I am a BPM and Enterprise Architect Consultant and hence have been using different BPM and EA tools for consulting practice. Until now I have used Opentext Provision EA,Sparx EA, MS Visio and IBM Blueworks. All of the tools used are good and have their own unique features and capabilities. ARIS BPA is widely used by my current organization for different projects.

Based on the on-prem experience with this tool, I believe that they have a lot of potential to help the online version catch up to where the on-prem left off. Nintex developed their online version and it is not as fully formed or capable compared to the on-prem version, and the licensing model scales back what we would have liked to be an expansion or at least continuous improvement of existing flows. It is also not near as user friendly specifically to non-developers and has an uncanny similarity to Microsoft Flow in the online instance. Consistent with my reviews of the tool - I believe they have some good approaches to design thinking that, if translated well from on-prem to online, could make this a clear winner again.

The Nintex Process Platform has never crashed or had any availability issues during my usage. However there was an issue that was of my own making that caused a slowdown of the system. I had set up a process to run once a day and check for employees on a list that had certain parameters selected, and for some reason that I had to troubleshoot, the process instead ran constantly, which filled the cache quickly. I ended up having to dismantle that process so the system didn't crash.

Unlike any other process automation product out there. Not only is it a low-code, easy to use tool for building processes in environments like SharePoint or Salesforce, they have really started to expand their tool-set by offering tools to manage other things like process mapping, RPA, mobile,etc.

It has good, even complex functionality that is provided by its library and ability to create relations between items, yet it is not hard to use. Anyone can use it in a short time. It provides reporting abilities and good documentation with the availability of exporting options. The only drawback I have seen was user management/login issues.

The Tier 1 support is horrible. It wasn't always this way. Previously their support was great, but lately when submitting support tickets they get lost, I have to ask for status updates and engage with the VP of support to get results.

I used the Nintex training software, it was easy to watch and follow along. It didn't go too fast and was descriptive enough to understand what the steps needed were in order to produce efficient workflows and user friendly forms.

test runs for key persons to insure the system is set up prior to rolling out I think the platform is good, I think the roll out and the local implantations is where we are failing as a company in using Nintex

Alternatives Considered

ARIS

ARIS has its own EPC notation which is very easy, hence a preferred notation amongst many. It has some enhanced features like the ability to create custom reports, queries, adhoc analysis, and simulation, which not all tools offer. However, it is very high priced compared to some other tool.

Microsoft's SharePoint 2013 workflow has a number of shortcomings that Nintex Workflow just deals with effortlessly. The Nintex tools seem to be built by people who understand how [to] process stuff is done properly, whereas the MS tools are comprehensive but seem to be written by & for programmers. For 365, PowerApps seem to be taking over the world, and not having PowerApps on your CV is a problem.

This product works well as you scale business processes but there is a point where things become too complex. Administratively it scales fine, number of users is no problem, and since Nintex relies on the build in SharePoint workflow manager, it falls under the same scalability perimeters. Business Process complexity is the limiter for scalability within Nintex.

Return on Investment

ARIS

  • Increased process efficiencies.
  • Single source of truth.
  • Better process analysis.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nintex Process Platform

  • With our diverse organization, being able to establish consistency is key and we can do this by creating a standardized form, process, and workflow with automation. So the process is easier and all of our people are doing it the same way. That is a game changer.
  • The licensing is a little hard to follow and can make the product unaffordable.
  • The approach of Nintex hosting the solution makes Nintex design their product for maximum usage. They have to make sure they can have their product embedded in a number of different systems; so, they use industry standard protocols and development.
