Likelihood to Recommend
As an end user, I would not recommend this solution for enterprise deployment. Lack of support for modern browsers, slow performance, and poor searchability - these things set Siebel CRM in the rear of the pack. There was no great mobile solution either, so that can be bothersome especially for road warriors like myself.

PRPC is a
and Case management suite from Pega Systems. Pega is a comprehensive suite which offers a unique theme of
development in the market. A no-coding approach based on rules with inheritance makes Pega a very powerful product but is very difficult to learn. Even, if we go to Pegasystems for training, we have to work on a project at least for a year to have some confidence. Areas where it requires improvements: 1) One of the first things that client's IT department questions about is proprietary BLOB column in PRPC, for them, it is a disadvantage, but as we all know BLOB is what makes the highly complex data model of any
application fit inside to a common schema which eliminates the help of a DBA. 2) Another area of improvement is: when using the wizards to generate rules (such as the connector wizards) you have to be careful about the level of coupling between the work object's data model and the interface's data model. This can also create maintenance issues. 3) The complete Pega suite of products have a long time to develop and deploy and it can be easily done using other low-cost software.

Lots of resources available on the product Supported by Oracle one of the world leader in IT Read full review Ability to design custom integrated campaigns Analytics to provide key insights and ability to tune your campaign accordingly Ability to design agent workflows Read full review Cons Migrations between environments is one area that could be improved, with tools to compare and move data elements (source vs target). Easier ways to identify, through email or a web page, the health of the overall system (components, marketing campaigns, tasks, servers, etc). The UI seems to be improved with the newer versions of Siebel, but I believe it requires a lot of new features. It seems that other CRM solutions that are cloud-based are putting a lot of emphasis on the Usability and presentation, things where Siebel may need to catch up... Read full review Pega Customer Engagement Suite is ready to use out of the box with several features, but custom development is always needed. Although new features can be quickly implemented, they have to go through a screening Business analysis process, QA screening and SCRUM based development. Pega eliminates the need for custom code, but there are rare cases where an specific requirement has little to no support from Pega, and implementing custom code can break OOB functionality and make the system unstable.

Oracle Siebel CRM is an older Sales CRM, so many of it's features aren't as current as ones used today. However, it has a smoother and easy-to-use UI. We're glad that we can still access Oracle Siebel CRM because it's easier to find older information that we can't easily find in our Salesforce Lightning CRM tool.

We no longer have support for our Oracle Siebel CRM. When we did, the support was slow to get some things fixed, therefore, there was a lot of downtime. Of course, this slowed down our overall productivity and increased our overall frustration with the tool. However, it would be nice if we still had some support with it since we still do access it from time to time.

We also connect to Oracle Business Intelligence, which is not even an option of the list of products above (that's always encouraging when products are missing from lists!) This connects to campaigns in Siebel along with users writing reports based on data from Siebel. I don't think OBIEE stacks up that great with other systems because it seems to be lacking in reports, and those who can make them have to be quite technical.
I think stacks up because of how robust and speedy (at times) it can be

Read full review Return on Investment This has all my company needs for sales analytic. It has helped our call center and the sales portal become more lean and require less resources for their day-to-day. We use its research and direct email capabilities and use it to target specific groups of potential clients. We have seen an improvement of nearly 20%. We have clients who have used a few modules like bill summary, campaign management and customer information. Oracle Siebel CRM has helped them reap ROI within a year from going live.
