OpenText MBPM

Metastorm is well-suited for scenarios in which internal stress testing an application is needed in a hurry before showcasing it to potential customers. It supports different views of the process from Swimlane perspective, so different methodologies can be handled. It is an Enterprise level tool and handles both small and large projects quite well, although smaller companies may be stressed out by the amount of time it takes to properly maintain the application.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

TIBCO ActiveMatrix is most useful for teams that need help mapping out their processes with other, co-dependent teams. It makes that conversation happen in a logical, structured way. The software is also helpful for professionals that need more data visualization in their business. On the opposite side, the software is not useful for really small businesses. It’s not worth the money.

Pros

OpenText MBPM

  • Complex routing of tasks based on calculated criteria

Peter Green | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

  • Workspace and Openspace Console that offers a powerful method for troubleshooting and viewing the routing within a process
  • Easy representation of the corporate organization
  • Powerful IDE to design a business process as a TIBCO Business Studio BPM Edition
  • Testing and Debugging

Cons

OpenText MBPM

  • The Metastorm process engine is based on an older version of .NET. Updating to a newer version would resolve several known issues with .NET email functionality.
  • Metastorm builds web pages at run time. While the UI presented to the end user is fine, the Document Object Model is convoluted and subject to change with new releases. Providing a more simplified DOM or at very least a custom function to replace document.getElementById() would make client-side scripting a much more powerful tool.
  • One function that I've seen Metastorm competitors do well, is email wizards. Having a WYSIWYG email editor would be really nice.
Eden Mack | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

  • A little bit too conservative. Not really anything leading edge. [Tibco] has plenty of customers, and that means they will probably be around forever, but [product enhancements] seem to be more [abundant in competitor product offerings].
  • It would be great to have some pre-defined themes. Pie chart labels - it would be great to get more options for sizing and placement.
  • I find it hard to trust the online portal too much. I doubt the security that is offered by this software.

Alternatives Considered

OpenText MBPM

We found that OpenText MBPM held its own quite well against IBM BPM. We ended up choosing OpenText MBPM due to the analytics, complex routing, and the ease of SOA service integration. Furthermore, the ability to quickly develop simple User interfaces make this tool a daily component of our most-used toolbox components.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

For BPM we looked at some IBM products suites, BPM Online, Oracle products and Pega Systems. The decision to go with AMX BPM was based on the evaluation by the software architect team and the cost of acquiring the TIBCO suites.

Return on Investment

OpenText MBPM

  • The development of the ticketing system has enabled us to greatly improve customer relationships
  • The scheduling and allocation of the tasks has reduced both the number of open tickets and the turnaround time to resolution
  • Management information from the system has improved decision making
Peter Green | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

  • In order to create a BPM management, you need to make a very solid data management model, which becomes very important in its reuse
  • The business process is very often unconnected with the implementation logic and therefore plays in favor of the re-usability of the software
  • Large customization at log level for which managing these tools can be handled minimizing effort
