Azure Logic Apps

Azure Logic Apps are a very powerful platform once you get your head wrapped around what they can really do. It is best not to go into them thinking of it as the total solution. Think of them as small tasks that can be chained together by other Azure Logic Apps or other custom applications to create the whole solution to the problem.

K2 Software

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

Azure Logic Apps

  • We use it for an email connector to a function app and as a way to move items into a storage account.
  • We use it as a way to preprocess information before it goes into function app or a SharePoint site.

  • K2 BlackPearl provides better versioning of processes than other BPM products I have used. Because of the feature-rich capabilities available being built on the MS Workflow framework, you can ultimately reach the level of code customization you need - but also leverage the tooling and code automating features of K2.
  • Its level of extensibility is fantastic. To say it is extensible and interoperable means a lot, because a lot of products SAY you can extend a feature, but it requires ripping out the kitchen of the house. K2 Blackpearl doesn't require kitchen replacement... you can upgrade the sink, replace the cabinetry, and extend pretty much everything. I have not run into a situation in the 6 years of using the product that I could NOT customize/extend a capability.
  • K2 Blackpearl's physical architecture options are plentiful. If you understand the product components and the granularity of the specific business need, you can provide an accurate blueprint installation of the product initially, and adapt or scale the product capabilities with relative ease via configuration and distributed options. They even offer training on physical infrastructure deployments if you are concerned about future use or growth.

Cons

Azure Logic Apps

  • Better explanation of all the features that you have available
  • Better documentation as it is a new platform
  • More start up projects to give users an idea of the power of the logic app

K2 Software

  • Better integration with TFS automated build tools is one feature that is missing out of box. My organization has controls on code migration and deployment and use TFS for other code and builds. We cannot use the automated build for K2 workflow projects.
  • Ability to define business rules in external rules engine/repository which can be used by workflow processes

While K2 blackpearl is powerful, it shouldn't be an automatic selection for all situations. A careful analysis of business requirements, cost, and projected long-term use is required before choosing a K2 offering over a competitor, as is true with almost any other business product. The more hands-on development you can get with K2 blackpearl the better you will be at determining if it's the correct product for your needs. Don't let a sales pitch sway you into purchasing or using the product; experience what it can do for yourself!

Azure Logic Apps is a quite handy tool for your toolbox as it integrates very easily with other MS products. It also has a lot of features that allows it to be easily deployed and updated via JSON and can be torn down and brought back up in different accounts quickly.

K2 platform has multiple designers (Web based designer ,k2 studio, visual studio) each targeted at business analysts,power users, and developers. The platform provides consistent web experience in workspace navigation for users and admins and provides excellent reports out of box.

Azure Logic Apps are backed by Azure and Microsoft. There is a wealth of information on the internet about both of these platforms. In addition to this Microsoft has a huge bush to using this platform and have offered many solutions and support options to the user. The only drawback is that it is a fairly new platform so the 3rd party information tends to be lacking.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Azure Logic Apps

Microsoft Logic Apps is much more enterprise-ready. With our company being more invested in Microsoft, this was a no brainer for us to leverage the tool. Its ease of use and scalability makes it a good choice for an enterprise workload.

K2 Software

What previously stood K2 apart from Nintex was purely the ability to have workflows executed outside of SharePoint. Nintex are due to release a product that resides in Azure that provides this feature as well. K2 should really look into redesigning the development GUIs they are not good at all, and perhaps look at providing a cloud solution to mitigate the risk of clients having to maintain hardware as well as their workflow solutions.

Return on Investment

Azure Logic Apps

  • Azure Logic Apps have had a great ROI as we have them automating tasks that used to be manual
  • Azure Logic Apps can sometimes take a while to build as you get "caught in the weeds"
  • Debugging can sometimes lead you down a rabbit hole and cost time
Kyle Kochtan | TrustRadius Reviewer

K2 Software

  • Positive impact on process discipline.
  • Excellent tools for measure process cycle time, identifying process delays, and making significant improvements to processes.
  • Increased efficiency through delivery of process information to stakeholders that minimizes delays, especially when processes are running across multiple time zones, and involve people who are traveling or away from their desktop.
