Nintex

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;

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.

Pros

Nintex

  • K2 BlackPearl provides better versioning of processes than other BPM products I have used. Because of the feature-rich capabilities available being built on the MS Workflow framework, you can ultimately reach the level of code customization you need - but also leverage the tooling and code automating features of K2.
  • Its level of extensibility is fantastic. To say it is extensible and interoperable means a lot, because a lot of products SAY you can extend a feature, but it requires ripping out the kitchen of the house. K2 Blackpearl doesn't require kitchen replacement... you can upgrade the sink, replace the cabinetry, and extend pretty much everything. I have not run into a situation in the 6 years of using the product that I could NOT customize/extend a capability.
  • K2 Blackpearl's physical architecture options are plentiful. If you understand the product components and the granularity of the specific business need, you can provide an accurate blueprint installation of the product initially, and adapt or scale the product capabilities with relative ease via configuration and distributed options. They even offer training on physical infrastructure deployments if you are concerned about future use or growth.

  • 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

Nintex

  • Better integration with TFS automated build tools is one feature that is missing out of box. My organization has controls on code migration and deployment and use TFS for other code and builds. We cannot use the automated build for K2 workflow projects.
  • Ability to define business rules in external rules engine/repository which can be used by workflow processes

  • 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.

    While K2 blackpearl is powerful, it shouldn't be an automatic selection for all situations. A careful analysis of business requirements, cost, and projected long-term use is required before choosing a K2 offering over a competitor, as is true with almost any other business product. The more hands-on development you can get with K2 blackpearl the better you will be at determining if it's the correct product for your needs. Don't let a sales pitch sway you into purchasing or using the product; experience what it can do for yourself!

    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.

    Usability

    Nintex

    K2 platform has multiple designers (Web based designer ,k2 studio, visual studio) each targeted at business analysts,power users, and developers. The platform provides consistent web experience in workspace navigation for users and admins and provides excellent reports out of box.

    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

    Nintex

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    Nintex

    What previously stood K2 apart from Nintex was purely the ability to have workflows executed outside of SharePoint. Nintex are due to release a product that resides in Azure that provides this feature as well. K2 should really look into redesigning the development GUIs they are not good at all, and perhaps look at providing a cloud solution to mitigate the risk of clients having to maintain hardware as well as their workflow 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.

    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

    Nintex

    • Positive impact on process discipline.
    • Excellent tools for measure process cycle time, identifying process delays, and making significant improvements to processes.
    • Increased efficiency through delivery of process information to stakeholders that minimizes delays, especially when processes are running across multiple time zones, and involve people who are traveling or away from their desktop.

    • 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.
