It has become second nature for us as consumers to use review sites such as TripAdvisor when choosing a hotel and Yelp to find the best local mechanic or restaurant. So why can't we tap into the reviews and opinions of peers for business purchases? We created IT Central Station to enable users of BPM and other enterprise software to find reliable peer information when making a software purchase.


A recent study from LinkedIn and Forrester Research found that the majority of enterprise tech decision makers are turning to social networks to guide them in the purchasing process. I started IT Central Station to help BPM and other IT professionals accomplish this by connecting with real users of these solutions are reading what they have to say about the solutions they use.


I would like to share with you some highlights of what our real users are saying about the dozens of Business Process Management solutions we have listed on IT Central Station. All reviewers are validated with their LinkedIn profile to ensure that our posts are authentic.


Oracle BPM: One of our real users who is a solution architect at a tech services company says that using Oracle BPM processes can be modeled, implemented, simulated and executed in a multi-user environment and many types of reports are available to monitor processes during runtime. On the other hand, they notice quite a high amount of processes, which are too complex and too flexible to model.


Bizagi: Reviewer Dr. Adnan Al-Tunisi gives Bizagi a 5-star rating, saying that it has enabled his company to go live with certain business flows in a routine matter rather than it becoming a scary event. He describes how their projects using Bizagi have been a major success. Additionally, he writes that the Bizagi system supports the continuous improvement and optimization of their registration processes.


IBM Business Process Manager: One of our reviewers explains that the standard edition "covers scalability, provides all the key Lombardi features without adding the burden of having trained WPS staff on hand but still has the ability to integrate with anything using custom developed code."


Intalio: An engineer at an insurance company notes that Intalio offers a wide scope as it is open source and the server itself is very stable and works very well. On the other hand, he notes that the designer is buggy and the errors are not self explanatory.
