IBM BPM is recommended wherever it requires the organization to develop in multiple platforms IBM supports like mobile, cloud, and web-based development. It is recommended for processes that require complex structures. It is not recommended where the UI structures are complex and when the business requirement has more load on the server.

IBM BPM continues to improve every day, providing substantial improvements in each release, which is highly valuable. There are some other solutions that compete in the Gartner magic quadrant, but we have been able to partner with IBM to find a local representative who can help us with the implementation.

It is a mature and stable suite that will allow you to grow without difficulty, as long as it is properly implemented. In the first few years, we required IBM to evaluate our developments, and in this way we learned from our errors and capitalized on this knowledge base.

IBM BPM is enterprise software. It has some of the generic pros/cons of enterprise software, some of which didn't get covered in this review. It is increasingly available in the cloud - and increasingly supports mobile scenarios. In some ways it benefits from getting to the party late, and having cloud and mobile infrastructure so much easier to build upon.

Have your process first on paper
Its important to first document the process before venturing into BPMS. It will save a lot of pain and heartaches. A BPM tool is no
magic bullet, it merely automates your process. Its upto you to put visibility and tracking on top of it. Provide monitoring so that
you get a chance to improve your process continously.
BPM is not an application
If you are trying to build an application with BPM, chances are that your are alraedy failing. BPM must be a strategic initiative for an
organization. Yes, you build Dashboards, Reports and other software in BPMS, however you do it at a process level not at an application
level.

BPM is well suited for simple as well as complex approval workflows. It is well suited for simple User Interfaces. The BPM Coach feature is not well suited if you need complex User Interfaces. If you need to use complex User Interfaces with BPM then you are better off using Portlets. It is also not well suite if you have SOA services that have a lot of types, recursive references, and anyType attributes.
