Powerful, easy to use with a few limitations

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Complex routing of tasks based on calculated criteria
  • Linking between tasks and accessing relevant information
  • Organising, scheduling and prioritising
  • Different views for different people
  • The integration with Office.
  • Reporting - the functionality is quite limited. Of course, we can use SSRS on the database but better-embedded reporting would be good.
  • Using the eRaiseFlag functionality (getting one folder or workflow to influence another) can be slow on a busy system.

A software developer's view on Metastorm

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • Rapid Development: Metastorm is designed to allow developers to quickly build (or change) workflows. Business Logic, rules and regulations change quickly in today's world and being agile about software changes keeps users productive and engaged.
  • Customization: While Metastorm provides many pre-built controls useful during rapid development cycles, it also provides a rich .NET framework which can be used to customize the experience. This provides a nice balance between ease of development and detailed customization.
  • Flexibility: I've evaluated many workflow solutions, and most are restrictive in form design or branching options. Metastorm closely approaches a true state machine architecture allowing for complex workflows and rich user interfaces.
  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • Ability to customize workflows
  • Integration into third party applications
  • Ability to use both a GUI and code-based interface to create business processes
  • This is a difficult question to answer as I've only had experience with a dated version of Metastorm
  • The newest version may have features that remedy issues I have experienced with 7.5
