  • User friendly and easy to use
  • Multiple options available to map various processes
  • Good customer service and it the best BPM tool ever used
  • There is a gap in version control
  • It does not allow users to move the box to make it look more attractive and presentable
  • The blueprint of the process when exported to. Doc file does not include the Discovery map. That thing should get fixed

  • Allows team members to work within their Space and then share that work with others
  • Export/print artifacts and space activity data
  • Create workflows and process blueprints
  • The playback feature can be a little buggy at times and could use some more speed as well.
  • It can be a little hard to navigate the many many menus and sub-menus
  • The search/filter feature could use some fine-tuning. It doesn’t always return the expected results

  • Out-of-the-box integration with the IBM Suite
  • Intuitive and easy-to-use for any business analyst
  • Lots of options to work with Microsoft products
  • Pricing is prohibitive for any non-Large Enterprise customer
  • User experience is very dated
  • Not a true BPMN2 modeler so you'll have a hard time migrating to another solution later on

  • Cloud based, hence quick and easy access without any installation requirement
  • Easy and intuitive, making modeling much easier
  • Visio import is one of the best in Blueworks
  • Low cost compared to some other tools in the market
  • User management is quite easy from an admin perspective

  • To add more BPMN symbols (at least task types like script task)
  • Ability to create pools in BPMN diagram, or else it cannot be integreated with SAP SolMan

  • It allows us to discover, capture, and document processes in a simple way.
  • Super simple method to process documentation and discovery.
  • Limitations in sharing and exporting to different applications.
  • I feel that changes only get made after a competitor comes out with a new model or feature.

  • It is a very simple tool.
  • It allows you to define roles and responsibilities and identify where a particular process, system, input, or activity is used.
  • Reporting should be improved to allow you to select the attributes to be downloaded (in Word files) and attributes from connected (in Excel).
  • In the diagrams, it should allow you to design the connectors yourself.

  • Business user-friendly - most business people can start to utilize BWL very quickly.
  • Easy way to capture and build processes starting with the discovery map.
  • Central repository for a single truth for areas to go to. Business architects can understand the current process and begin to do to-be models. Business Analysts can know where to go and start to get the current as-Is model, rather than spending time and effort trying to capture the information from SMEs to just get a project started.
  • Analytics - the ability to have more robust analytics. For processes being able to get information about the metadata and to be able to export that information. In addition, being able to capture end-to-end processes, sub-processes, and linked processes. To get the analytics across that value chain. To be able to export that for various areas to do analysis, problems, and opportunities.
  • Reporting - Being able to have reported. For such a business-facing tool, the reporting capabilities are non-existent. This to me is a drawback to more adoption by the business. Business shouldn't have to go to IT to build reports using APIs.
  • CM - Being able to capture content in BWL. Keeping pace with Digital Business Automation means BWL has to be enhanced to stay current. I feel that changes get made only after a competitor comes out with a new model capturing ability. BWL can be a great tool and should be invested in and improved with innovations not just catch up.
  • Create the ability to ingest Decisions into IBM ODM product.

  • Document business processes.
  • It has a unique ability to document KPIs and provide playback of the process to the business.
  • Live capture of requirements synced simultaneously across users.
  • It doesn't support very complicated processes.

  • Document processes as Milestones and Activities, which is simple to understand even for Business Analysts or Program Managers.
  • System magically shows a visual representation of the information one puts in, in an easy-to-understand swim lane representation.
  • All attributes can easily be read in the document style representation.
  • Easy to export as a word or a powerpoint and also as a BPMN 2 file that could be integrated into one's own BPM product or directly into IBM BPM.
  • IBM should offer this solution as a complementary service for Business Partners and Customers on engagements so one could strategically document and uncover new opportunities to cross sell.
  • It could be of real value for smaller companies and more available if the price point is lower so all clients can leverage the savings and include the entire organization rather than a select few.
  • Connectors to third party would help.
