    Nintex Pros & Cons

    Pros

    Cons

    Powerful companion to Microsoft SharePoint and Office 365.
    Nintex mainly focuses on users who work within Microsoft-based environments like SharePoint and Office365. However, users who use more modern, agile tools find the platform awkward and outdated.
    Significant learning curve for low-code users.
    Despite touting a “clicks not code” interface, Nintex is cumbersome for no-and-low-code users to navigate. Many processes often require knowledge in JavaScript and extra support from an IT team. While it’s easy to learn, it is challenging for most to master.
    Effortless learning curve for advanced users.
    Nintex mainly focuses on users who work within Microsoft-based environments like SharePoint and Office365. However, users who use more modern, agile tools find the platform awkward and outdated.
    Challenging to debug failed workflows.
    Many users are overwhelmingly frustrated with Nintex’s generic error reporting. Processes simply fail to run without any explanation into the source of the problem. The platform doesn’t shed a very detailed light on which steps contribute to a process failure, therefore leaving non-experienced developers in the dark.

    ProcessMaker Pros & Cons

    Pros

    Cons

    True Low-Code Environment but with additional Developer tools.
    Design and deploy without coding knowledge needed. However, for developers that want to create custom scripts and packages to run in their environment, ProcessMaker has a full featured web IDE for designing scripts in almost any programming language.
    More Coding Knowledge Equals Better Feature Usage.
    An IT professional does have to write the original script tasks that serve as the building blocks for many processes, which can then be reused indefinitely by business users.
    Pricing.
    Reportedly it is one of the more affordable enterprise BPM solutions.
    Single Cloud Support.
    ProcessMaker seems to lean toward AWS at present and its new solution is not marketed for On Premise. However, ProcessMaker is offering a unique hybrid solution with the ability to store sensitive data on premise with a connection to your cloud deployment.
    Thorough Training and Professional Services, and Support.
    Numerous reviews across G2 Crowd, Capterra, and Gartner Peer Insights cite positive reception of training and support as a major factor in sticking with ProcessMaker.
    Technical Installation on Premise.
    ProcessMaker is built for the cloud. For users that want to run the open source on premise they will find installation difficult and all the cool enterprise features are missing in the open source. The open source core, however, is well documented and ideal for inclusion in other enterprise products.
