Kofax TotalAgility

The platform is an excellent solution for companies looking for a workflow automation system that can be used across departments and its return on investment becomes apparent once it is introduced in production for a business. Its ability to route work tasks dynamically between employees and outside parties, implement SLAs, and get information to a back-end source is excellent.

Pega RPA

It is not suited for centralized bot deployments. If several bots need to be deployed, then it will be difficult to manage and control. Programmers have to create custom code components to collect log files, health files, etc. On the other hand, it is best suited for an application which takes a random time to load, works in Windows MDI, or in parallel programming.

Pros

Kofax TotalAgility

  • Ease of use. The drag and drop configuration to create the processes makes the product easy to use and configure. Most of the icons are intuitive on what they are and how to use them. The use of the colored icons for each value also helps to know that that value is looking for.
  • Forms. The capture forms are easy to create and maintain. A new field can be added to the Extraction group and then the capture form is regenerated and that field is automatically added to the form with all the proper attributes. If an additional check box or field is added to the form, that field stays when regenerated. This differs from KTA 6.0.
  • Kofax has done pretty well integrating all the pieces of Kofax into one product. KC (Kofax Capture), KIC (Kofax Import Connector), KTM (Kofax Transformation Module with OCR), and workflow are all combined into KTA (Kofax Total Agility). This lets all of these features work together in one product. Kofax does keep adding more to the functions that maybe were left out original version. This makes Kofax Total Agility a robust product.

Pega RPA

  • Pega RPA has translators for specific platforms which makes it easy to integrate and automate. For example, .Net translators helps to interrogate applications based on .Net platform.
  • "Wait for Create" feature is not available in any other RPA tool, which is handy during RPA workflows.
  • Pega RPA has special features for Pega application which makes it a preferred RPA tool for them.

Cons

Kofax TotalAgility

  • Exception management within the platform can certainly be improved upon. If a job is suspended for any particular issue integrations can be put in place to attempt to handle them but it is kludgy and does not always work as anticipated.
  • The administration interface is based on Microsoft Silverlight which limits it to certain versions of Internet Explorer and the interface has seen better days. Their other application, Kofax Kapow, has a much more mature and intuitive interface. This supposedly is being replaced in the next major iteration but I have doubts it will be successfully done.
  • The product is expensive. It is also the Cadillac of workflow platforms with document transformation built in. In many cases the product can do what you want it to do but there may be other more cost effective platforms.

Pega RPA

  • Pega RPA doesn't have centralized control room which is available in other RPA tools. It should be there for the centralized control of bots.
  • Pega RPA should have better help documents and tutorials. Help.Openspan.com doesn't contain enough examples to understand the product. This will ease the lives of developers.
  • It should have better recording and data scrapping features which are present in other RPA tools like UIPath, AA, and Blueprism.

Alternatives Considered

Kofax TotalAgility

Kofax TotalAgility is a beast of a package that gives you a thousand ways to tackle a problem, but it may not be the best platform for your needs. It is more of an enterprise platform that integrates well with other systems with moderate development time. Other packages may be cheaper, easier, and faster to implement depending on needs.

Pega RPA

Pega RPA and UIPath both are tools for Robotic process automation. In our projects we were dealing with Pega applications which are easily coupled with Pega RPA. It is better in a multi-threading environment as separate features are provided in Pega RPA. In UIPath, one needs to know VB.NET in order to write custom code which is not a popular programming language. And in Pega RPA, it is a C# and .Net application which is famous among programmers.

Return on Investment

Kofax TotalAgility

  • Kofax TotalAgility is very expensive. Some customers have reported that using the KTA workflow has increased productivity and has a good ROI overall. The customers have not shared true numbers for me to give details.

Pega RPA

  • Once bots are deployed they carry out work 24*7*365, which resulted in saving several work hours.
  • The support team has to monitor regularly. If there is no change in target applications or bots are running fine. This is a bit of negative impact from RPA side.
  • Overall, the organizations are benefited from bots as they save operation cost and work hours.
