Overall Satisfaction with K2

We are currently working on several K2 applications. One is a SharePoint site provisioning tool that users can go to, to request a new SharePoint site. Based on how they answer questions, a site will be created in either SharePoint Online or On-Prem. We are also working on several K2 applications for our PMO, and Security Teams to help them redefine their business processes.
  • K2 manages workflow automation very well.
  • K2 provides very good scalability when building out a new business process.
  • K2 has the ability to build stand-alone apps and not be dependent solely on a SharePoint infrastructure.
  • Better documentation for on-prem installation.
  • There is no longer a forms designer in 5.0 and the current forms designer built into the UI is years behind where the old forms designer was. So many missing features.
  • 0 is not as user-friendly as 4.7.
  • It has given us a clear path forward from InfoPath.
  • Faster time to market application delivery.
Nintex was pitched to us as not really doing much more than InfoPath. Probably a bad selling day for Nintex but we were left with a less than desirable taste in our mouths. We knew we liked K2 more anyway because of the independence from SharePoint as well as already being familiar with it.
K2 does what K2 does. It is great at forms and workflow automation. The ability to customize on the go is a strong point as well. When we build a form or process, we can make changes on the fly in the event that a launch is less than expected. We can tweak as needed. Very scalable. For some of our business customers that need things fast, K2 is perfect for that. Creating custom applications from scratch will still take probably twice as long.
