Red Hat
JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is great when you are looking at building more or less pure Java applications and SOA micro-services that may integrate with multiple external data sources. It is less useful when you are looking to build simple SOA applications that are simple in nature since the overhead associated with deploying as well as learning BPEL.

Workday
Workday is great for HR processes. All my HR stakeholders love Workday. We tried to use Workday for the business processes of procurement and finance, but we found many issues to customize the processes to the way my company needs. Moreover, the consulting service to implement the processes is also very expansive.

Cons
Red Hat
  • JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is dependent and build for JEE/Java application so using a different programming paradigm will be much harder.
  • There is still a learning curve to get familiar with BPEL making it harder to get an SOA micro-service up and running compared to a fully cloud-based service

  • Trying to log in outside of your employer network can be like jumping through too many hoops.

Support Rating
Red Hat
Redhat support generally is great and that is true for the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform as well. Even if you do not buy support from Redhat, you can reply on the discussion board and bug fixes via the open-source JBoss without much trouble.

Workday
Not only can we receive dedicated support from Workday, but the Workday user community is a powerful tool to troubleshoot BP errors, brainstorm, and to dive deeper on a topic of interest.

Alternatives Considered
Red Hat
Oracle SOA Suite (Oracle BPM + Oracle BPEL + other components) and IBM WebSphere middleware is most costly and suited if you are already using applications and other middleware components from these vendors. Mulesoft (Salesforce Mule ESB) is best when you need deep integration with one of Salesforce's existing products. JBoss and Apache Web Server are best when you do not want to invest infant CapEx/OpEx on license fee. Apache Web Server based middleware is best for simple SOA applications.

Workday
  • It's easy for employees to find answers on their own without having to speak with multiple departments.
  • It ensures that there usually are no errors made when punching in and out.
  • If there is a glitch with the system then it can cause a problem for an entire company which is something to consider.
