Nintex Process Platform

Running complex or multi-step workflows is really where Nintex shines, especially if you don't have developer resources on staff. With the WYSIWYG like workflow canvas, you can easily see the logic and build the necessary steps using out-of-the-box controls included in the product. Branching logic or conditional steps are easily supported and the concept of state machines is supported as well.

Oracle BPM Suite

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.

Pros

Nintex Process Platform

  • Nintex workflows provide a robust interface that's not only intuitive but easy to learn with little to no coding experience.
  • Nintex forms are particularly powerful and provide a great alternative to InfoPath forms which is being deprecated.
  • Upgrading between versions of Nintex is easy to do with their nwadmin tool and robust documentation provided on their support portal.
  • The user adoption rate of their products is extremely high and doesn't require a selling point or an explanation of benefits in converting their existing workflows and forms.

Oracle BPM Suite

  • Modeling business processes - it is providing an interface where users can drag and drop many kinds of shapes to build a business process.
  • HumanTask - I consider this as being the key strength of Oracle BPM. It allows you to create approval flows in different ways and it manages the long-running processes (while waiting for people to interact with the flow).
  • The user-interface for user tasks - it is one place where you can see all tasks and their progress. Admins can see and interact with other people's tasks.

Cons

Nintex Process Platform

  • Forms: Some functionality about validation, or buttons need to be implemented using JAVASCRIPT. It would be welcomed to include more functions in this area.
  • Forms: The parent-child relationship is another area to improve. Repeating sections don't have the required performance to make a strong relationship between two or more tables (Sharepoint lists).
  • Workflow: Using an on-premise environment, there is not a good system to manage workflows: versions, insights, purge, etc.
Francisco Falomir | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle BPM Suite

  • Again, it takes a decent amount of IT knowledge to realize the full potential of the Oracle BPM Suite
  • It can tend to feel sluggish unless you slightly exceed the minimum system requirements
  • There are so many features that it can be difficult to know which ones to use and which ones not to use in a given situation

Unfortunately, we will not be using Nintex going forward because the experience in on-prem Nintex and SharePoint 2016 is not replicable in Office 365 / SharePoint online. Also, the licensing model is different and would not be cost-effective to scale in the new environment with a lower-functioning version of Nintex (Nintex online is not as robust and user-friendly as the on-prem version). Our parent company assesses capability, licensing models, cost, and security to weigh in on whether a tool can exist in our portfolio. While on-prem Nintex was a great solution for our business when connected to SharePoint 2016, the online version that connects to SharePoint online is feature-weak, in development, and does not march capability forward for us in a meaningful way. The parent operating company has opted to go with Microsoft Flow instead.

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

Nintex Workflow does exactly what it is advertised to do: make workflow development fast and easy. It doesn't provide very much new functionality, but it isn't really supposed to.When I am working with a client on a SharePoint project, I am always happy if I hear that they use Nintex Workflow, as it makes workflows much easier.

I used the Nintex training software, it was easy to watch and follow along. It didn't go too fast and was descriptive enough to understand what the steps needed were in order to produce efficient workflows and user friendly forms.

Alternatives Considered

Nintex Process Platform

Nintex WorkFlows seems to be a lot more user friendly, contrast to using SharePoint Designer. I had to spend a lot of time learning SPD and even more time troubleshooting SPD WorkFlows and InfoPath Forms. Though Microsoft offers lots of information on knowledge base (kbs) and "Tech Net" articles that can be an eye sore to read, Nintex has a lot of easy to understand online courses that empower administrators how each action works, WorkFlow terminology and mitigating errors. I appreciate the Nintex online community that also zeros in on troubleshooting when admins are stuck.

IBM's Rational RequistePro was considered as an alternative but due to the client's good experience with existing Oracle services, BPM Suite was finally decided upon.

Scalability

Nintex Process Platform

Nintex Process Platform 8.5
Based on 3 answers
This product works well as you scale business processes but there is a point where things become too complex. Administratively it scales fine, number of users is no problem, and since Nintex relies on the build in SharePoint workflow manager, it falls under the same scalability perimeters. Business Process complexity is the limiter for scalability within Nintex.

Return on Investment

Nintex Process Platform

  • Nintex has an ROI report that analysis all workflows in your environment and time spent on developing the workflows . We have paid off our investment in the first 12 months according to this report.
  • Once you have implemented it, you should probably have more than one person or have plans in place to get more people because the requests will start streaming in.
Francois Crous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle BPM Suite

  • Documenting a flow to a client allows communicating the intention of a development and thereby minimizing changes that could delay the calendar.
  • Simulating macro processes allows you to visualize at an early stage the figures of a project in order to better manage resources.
