Overall Satisfaction with Blueworks Live

Blueworks is being used by the complete organization across the globe to suggest leading practices that we have already modeled in the tool and also to model our client's complete processes. This in turn helps to do gap analysis between current state and target state and identify improvement areas for them. Because of its ease of use, it is a preferred tool for many of our clients.
  • 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
  • Ability to customize reports like change the layout if required
  • 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
  • Have been able to deliver multiple engagements giving a positive RoI
  • Showcases us as an expert in process modeling
  • Helped build good relations with our clients
1. Multiple people can access the data without the need for sharing it individually with each user
2. Ability to update data and give real-time access to updated data by other users
3. Multiple people can work on the same process at the same time reducing time, effort, and dependency
4. Can reuse the same data and customize with a single click
1. Easy to track changes due to automated change notifications
2. Easy to share process links using the in-tool chat feature
3. Easy to provide or reply on review comments

Overall, it provides an easy and user-friendly experience due to its similarity with social collaboration features like post, share comments, follow users or processes, etc.
We wanted an easy to use and install tool. Because it is cloud-based, it has helped reduce the admin task of manually installing the tool on a client's systems. Further, it is quite easy to understand and requires minimal training. Also, we wanted a simple and low-cost tool that could suffice the needs of our client and it best fits that.
  • Devops Insights
None
  • ARIS Business Process Management (BPM)
Blueworks is relatively simple and much easier to use and at a lower cost compared to ARIS.
However, Blueworks does not support modeling like risk universe, org charts, etc. like in ARIS. Also, advanced simulation is not possible in Blueworks unlike in ARIS. The number of BPMN symbols in Blueworks is limited.
Blueworks is well suited when only process modeling needs to be done, when processes from Visio need to be converted, and when end to end integrated flows need to be created

It's less appropriate when enterprise-wide architecture modeling is needed like org charts, application architecture, if it has to be integrated with SAP SolMan, and when simulation needs to be done.
