Can be a bit inflexible when it comes to UI design.

The product UI required a overhaul for a long time. The product is still perceived as difficult to use compared to Pega or IBM BPM even though it is not the case.

Pros

Price and applicability as a light weight BPM software

Cons

Rigid UI and cannot customize easily

Advice to Others

Would like to see Appian considered as an alternative to the open source RedHat JBPM
