Overall Satisfaction with K2 blackpearl

We are using K2 blackpearl in some departments and not across the organization yet. We also developed and implemented projects using K2 blackpearl in combination with K2 SmartForms.
  • It helped to create flexibility in our Process Automation. It has become easier than ever to modify the existing processes (implemented in K2 blackPearl) when the need arises.
  • We were able to create web forms efficiently using K2 SmartForms which is powered by k2 blackPearl. It's an exceptional tool to create web forms without writing a single line of code.
  • The parallel approval mechanism supported by K2 blackpearl was really helpful in our projects as we want to send work items to group of users rather than a single individual.
  • We are looking for usability and Category Security feature in K2 SmartForm which is powered by k2 blackpearl.
  • Is it possible to design SmartForms using Visual Studio designer? that is something we are looking for so that we can version it in Sorice Control appropriately. .
  • There is a need to improve the performance of the processing of the work list items generated in K2 Workspace.
  • It helped to reduce the process turnaround time.
  • In some scenarios where we have created parent and child workflow, we noticed significant slow response time in triggering the child processes using IPC events.
  • Seen increase in the users productivity.
We are evaluating IBP BPM tools for enterprise level process automation. It also offers a process discovery tool.
It is well suited for small departmental workflow. However, I'm not sure how it will work at the enterprise level where volume is very huge.

Using K2 blackpearl

We are already using K2 blackpearl in many small departmental projects which are live in production. We need to continually support those projects.

K2 blackpearl Training

It was a complete online training with virual machine provided by K2. All the infrastructure was set up before hand. The training material was pretty thorough. The instructor was knowledgeable.
Overall the training program was well designed and planned.
