Overall Satisfaction with OpenText MBPM

We use Metastorm across several departments in our organization. It is a great tool for automating tasks and streamlining workflows. Other people within our company use Metastorm to map business processes as well as to identify the impact of business process changes with IT systems. It is also helpful for the process of workflow creation.

  • Integration into third party applications
  • Rapid Development; allows developers to quickly build and/or change workflows
  • Powerful user interface design
  • High degree of scalability
  • Lack of a graphical user interface email editor
  • Auto creation of later activities in model viewer would be nice in order to quickly generate outcome scenarios
  • Built-in reporting is somewhat limited
  • Easy and convenient access to client configuration information
  • It provides numerous built-in controls which are quite useful during rapid development cycles
  • It also provides a tremendously rich .NET framework which can be used to tweak the experience to the needs of each individual customer
We found that OpenText MBPM held its own quite well against IBM BPM. We ended up choosing OpenText MBPM due to the analytics, complex routing, and the ease of SOA service integration. Furthermore, the ability to quickly develop simple User interfaces make this tool a daily component of our most-used toolbox components.
Metastorm is well-suited for scenarios in which internal stress testing an application is needed in a hurry before showcasing it to potential customers. It supports different views of the process from Swimlane perspective, so different methodologies can be handled. It is an Enterprise level tool and handles both small and large projects quite well, although smaller companies may be stressed out by the amount of time it takes to properly maintain the application.
