    As soon as you have an issue, a ticket is created and the tech support is quite responsive. The File Transfer component is quite valuable. The integration with products such as Informatica and SAP are very valuable to us as well. Rather than having to build our own interface into those products, we can use the ones that come out of the box. The integration with databases is valuable as well. We use database jobs quite a bit.

    Pricing is a little on the high side. The workflows are the most valuable features, particularly for us, because we were attempting to automate processes by utilizing workflows to provide a hands-off comparison between the bot and the human.

    The performance is fine. IBM BPM is stable.
  6. leader badge
    Very, very stable.What I find most valuable is the flexibility, I find it very easy to use and very flexible for my purpose. I can use it without any particular problem, and it's very intuitive and easy to understand.
  7. One of the most valuable features of this solution is the versatility of the prebuilt jobs.ActiveBatch can automate predictable, repeatable processes very well. There is no real trick to what ActiveBatch does. ActiveBatch does exactly what you would expect a scheduling piece of software to do. It does it in a timely manner and does it with very little outside interference and fanfare. It runs when it is supposed to, and I don't have to jump through a bunch of hoops to double check it.

  9. I find the BPM the most valuable feature.It's heavy on business processing in terms of logic, process workflows, and primarily on the process design modeler. Appian is really great at that. In terms of the full stack set from a low-code platform perspective, it's definitely an eye opener since it can be deployed via mobile app and on the web as well.
  10. The solution is pretty stable and reliable. The solution was easy to install.

Hi peers,  We're considering to offer developers free creation of automation pipelines.  The idea is to get workflow requirements from a customer and build the workflow according to these requirements so what is left for them is to integrate them into their own resources and to execute. Do you see a high demand for anything like that? Please let us know your use cases. Thanks

I can see where it would be beneficial for some, but if they have the automation tool, I think it would best for them to receive some training on how to do it themselves.
