IBM

It's hard to recommend a tool that does not follow the universal industry standard (BPMN2). Like Visio, it looks and feels like the standard is respected (shapes, naming convention, etc.) but Blueworks Live does not in fact follow any of it. It is a good tool for any company that is primarily looking at drawing diagrams (e.g., export them as images), as opposed to building live processes.

Nintex

If you have any process that you do routinely that follow the same basic steps, you can and should use Nintex Process Platform. It really helps you flush out processes, even ones you have had for years. Doing this allows you to streamline those processes and free your time up. It can save your Inbox as well by allowing direct communication to clients or co-workers, without the back and forth or repeats of the same email.

  • User management is quite easy from an admin perspective

Nintex

  • Process mapping and designing of models, which perfectly issues an outline for swift actions.
  • Constant issuance of standard report, a formal way that improves the processes that enhance fruitful operations.
  • Automation of several actions, more so those with routine requirements and daily commitments.

Cons

IBM

  • In particular, we have had problems with the availability of the service because the platform frequently crashed.
  • Is not easy to pull some indicators.
  • We would like to be able to see a different interface, long ago with the same.
  • Payment process is not easy.

Nintex

  • Difficult to fix flows that are in process (such as re-assigning a task for someone that is OOO or has left the company).
  • Nintex support team does not have resolution SLAs (only acknowledgment SLAs). Occasionally this has led to key issues taking weeks to resolve.
  • The number of integrations available is impressive, however, sometimes key methods are not available within an integration. This has been improving significantly in the past 2 years as the platform has matured.

    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.

    Nintex

    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.

    Reliability and Availability

    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.

    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.

    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

    IBM

    To start an environment you don't need to have a data model well defined. You can start and then adapt your data model with different needs and degree of depth. It's very easy to produce effective documentation with less effort. Last but not least, to maintain all the stuff it's cheaper than other solutions.

    Unlike Kissflow, the Nintex Process Platform speeds up the course of advanced change quickly and effectively. It is not as automotive as the Nintex Process Platform. Nintex Process Platform has a responsive specialized help group that conveys delightful client service, in contrast to the contenders.

    Nintex

    The scalability is really bottlenecked by the imagination of the user. I was able to make processes for my own personal usage, making my daily tasks easier. I was also able to make processes that affected hundreds of employees, making large standardization and efficiency gains. So either way, the system is used the same way, and I was the limiting factor.

    Return on Investment

    IBM

    • We spend less time searching through notes and messages trying to figure out which process we liked most, which worked best, etc
    • We can view processes and simulated processes in real time
    • It easy to share and collaborate with other team members and get their feedback

    Nintex

    • Implementation is straightforward for the IT team, but the costs of cloud service can be very expensive.
    • Easy integration with SharePoint, SAP, Salesforce positively increases ROI.
    • Our migration to the cloud was expensive, but it was the best decision for growth and the bottom line.
