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.

Oracle

Oracle BPM is well suited to organizations and environments that have a good understanding of their business processes and organizational structures. Trying to introduce a tool such as Oracle BPM into the organization without a good grasp on how the business operates is a recipe for disaster as the implementation will uncover all of the dirty secrets of an organizations business processes and bring them to light. BPM is not to be utilized for smaller service orchestrations or technical service implementations, these should be handled by the Oracle SOA Suite using the BPEL process manager, leaving BPM to handle the organizational business processes, referring to and including lower level services and BPEL processes as needed.

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.

Oracle

  • Oracle BPM is left behind by other tools more modern in terms of user experience, usability and ability to integrate with everything else.
  • To really harvest the potential of Oracle BPM you need to do it in JDeveloper and with ADF. This restricts its usage to very technical people.
  • The administration of the Oracle BPM tools has really put a burden on our team. It is running on Weblogic and we experience issues very often either with performance or with a bad configuration of the system.
  • As with all Oracle products, the price can be an issue for smaller shops.

      In many scenarios it should have provided more features. It took a lot of effort while debugging, making it difficult to maintain.

      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.

      Oracle

      We evaluated Bonita and found that it might fit a smaller-sized company better; we found that Oracle BPM Suite scaled much more evenly. We almost went with one of the competitors, but in the end chose Oracle BPM Suite after we factored in the cost of VMware licensing. There are literally tons of analytics on the back end which are great for upper management, but not so much for average users, but this fits our business model quite well.

      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

      Oracle

      • You'll most certainly need a deep dive and extensive training before your users can even think of using the product and they are very expensive.
      • Lack of documentation makes it very difficult to manage the application if any error is encountered which will result in you ending up hiring a dedicated person to look into the application once it's deployed.
      • For a very large org., if properly implemented and used, it can help identify the cost-intensive and inefficient processes.
