Likelihood to Recommend

K2 Platform

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

  • It is a solid enterprise workflow engine and pretty much does what it says on the box
  • The forms solution is good, but hardly great

Cons

  • This product has steep learning curve. There are not many samples available online. The only way to learn is self learning and attending the K2 training events. The nature of the product is such that its very hard to remember the steps unless you do it more than 2 times. So if K2 can publish more how to videos on youtube or other media sharing platforms that will be nice.

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

K2 delivers much more efficient enterprise level solutions to our organization. The K2 workflow engine and forms tools are superior to Nintex in what they can deliver. Nintex however, was much easier to learn and the team got up and running much more quickly using Nintex. Heave use of Nintex eventually slowed down out SharePoint farm due to resiging and running on the web front end servers. This caused us to migrate to K2 where we could develop more robust workflows that did not have a negative impact on our SharePoint farm.
