K2 experience 2 years on

Reviewed 4 years ago

We jumped into the K2 world with both feet, and did not make irt easy for oursleves by having our first app as a significicantly complex app. This has contributed to some of our issues - but K2 does have architectural issues that we hope will be addressed in 2020 releases.

Pros

Low code approach > Productivity Number of integrations out of the box > Productivity K2 people and support received

Cons

lack of support for CI/CD inability to have more than one instance (version) of an app on one server performance can degrade quite quickly the standard UI

Good value for money

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have used K2 blackpearl and K2 five for 5 years on medium to great projects. It is one of the best values for money in the BPM market. It still has a margin for improvement in customization and deployment tasks. Its support team is simply awesome.

Pros

Easy to learn and use. You can develop professional-grade workflow-based applications in days. Really extensible using its service brokers.

Cons

Not so easy to master, it is easy to do a lot of things but is also easy to do it terribly wrong impacting the overall performance. Smartforms are not the most beautiful user interface except you want to invest a lot of time, although is really fast to add functionality to a solution is hard to customize it. It does not support some great staff like multilanguage out of the box.

K2 for Developers

Reviewed 4 years ago

K2 is an awesome tool and great skill to have. As more companies adapt low code solutions they will definitely be the front runner for such solutions .

Pros

K2 Smartforms and blackpearl was an easy transition from an C# SQL .net developer background to their latest Technologies. No more tedious code to step through , easy code control , GREAT deployment features with ease of use .

Cons

The installation is quite a mammoth task , and , low code can be cumbersome to first expose the API and then consume with Swagger etc.

A good value solution for a small charity.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Our overall experience has been positive. K2 is a good company to work with and they have been very supportive of our use of their product. K2 is a good value solution that has enabled a small charity to develop systems streamlining some of our recording and reporting processes and procedures for staff. The fact that we have been able to develop our solutions in house using K2 means we have the ability to adapt to changing needs or legal requirements quickly and relatively easily.

Pros

The flexibility of K2 is great. You can get it to do pretty much anything. We use Sharepoint so the integration K2 has with it is very useful. The new workflow designer is excellent and much clearer than the old one.

Cons

There is a steep learning curve, especially if you are not an IT professional. Some of the documentation could do with updating as it is old and does not really explain some of the features very clearly. Moving data around between different forms, views and subviews can sometimes be a bit harder than it perhaps could be.

Best workflow software I have seen

Reviewed 4 years ago

We have taken a number of traditional database applications and re-created them as workflow processes. This has meant we have replaced some legacy applications for a fraction of the time and cost involved with building new custom coded solutions.

Pros

It's ability to connect to all our other business systems, such as SQL Server and Oracle, and create workflow processes quickly and easily.

Cons

We had a few teething issues with the installation and setup but these are to be expected when introducing a new system, but I have not found anything that I dislike.

K2 5 Review

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Best things were: - Speed of Delivery - Price - K2 Professional Services Team - Reliability of what was delivered

Cons

Problems were: - Some features that we would like are yet to be added - Out of the Box reports could be improved; but we integrated with another reporting product and built our own very easily
