Nintex features, migration and what you should know

Working with the Territory Manager has been quite difficult. We had to deploy our deployment due to server issues, but had the migration keys already. Even though we have a software assurance package and only needed 2 more weeks, they asked us to pay an extra $2300 to extend the temporary license for another 2 weeks. We chose not to extend the temporary license, and simply move over to the new keys, but they're still asking for more money. The functionality we receive for the price -- not worth it.

Product Reviews

Pros
Nintex tool itself is acceptable for business users; visual, easy to set up.
Cons
The tool itself is not for advanced users. Developers get frustrated with using it because of all the workaround that are needed to accomplish simple actions.
Additionally, if you are planning on migrating from SharePoint 2010 to 2013, watch out. The company is quite adamant about not providing migration licenses past 15 days AND make any transition incredibly difficult.

The best workflow tool for SharePoint - PERIOD.

This is an amazing package. It allows completely code-free control over SharePoint workflow. If you have any experience using the Visual Studio interface to program SharePoint, you will appreciate just how complex SharePoint workflow coding can be, and Nintex Workflow for SharePoint eliminates this complexity. The product itself can appear quite complex at first, because it has a huge array of elements available to define custom workflows. But once you've been introduced to the basics, it's really quite straightforward. The product is elegantly designed and deeply integrated with SharePoint. My only reservation is with the pricing - licensing can be expensive. But the value is substantial.

Product Reviews

Pros
Comprehensive set of workflow elements and actions
Simple, graphical interface for workflow definition
SharePoint-specific design
Cons
The range of elements and actions is large and can be a bit intimidating at first
Licensing can be expensive

Powerful Tool, but not the right fit for some...

All in all it's a great product if you want something to improve the User Interfaces of standard Workflows in SharePoint.

Product Reviews

Pros
As a Whole, the Nintex product is a big leap from the workflows built into SharePoint 2010 and 2013. The improvements lie within the UI to create an easier method of creating Workflows.
Cons
Nintex is essentially an overlay of the SharePoint workflow model. Under the surface, the nuts and bolts are still the same. In our situation. we needed an enterprise wide solution that required workflows in other SQL based systems. Connecting them to SharePoint was too cumbersome, so we needed to go for an external engine that could cover both levels and chose K2.

This tool has become indispensable to us

Well worth it

Product Reviews

Pros
Fairly comprehensive set of actions are availabe. Integration with STMP, Active Directory, SQL in addition to all the SharePoint stuff. WYSIWYG works very well. Easy to learn how to use. Site workflows can be scheduled.
Cons
User defined actions and import/export provide some reusability but there could be more done in this area to reduce redundancy across multiple workflows.

Integrates seemlessly with Sharepoint, works well,and is easy to use.
Cons
cost is a bit high

Workflow in the hands of the Power User

Excellent Product

Product Reviews

Pros
Traditionally SharePoint has lot of capabilities to stramline and automate most the Business Processes. This power is brought into the hands of the Power User/Business user by using Nintex.

This is one of the important tools that most of the companies should look to invest if they want to take advantage of the Workflows with no code approach.

Easy to learn and impllement by power users

Product Reviews

Pros
It seems that our IT department is always bogging down doing software upgrades forever. By using Nintex, you protect yourself and your organization from Microsoft's direction changes.
Cons
per server cost model, the more succesful your implementation the more it costs!

Nintex Workflow for SharePoint 2007

I would recommend Nintex, but I wouldn't recommend buying their extended support. Definitely not worth the money.

Product Reviews

Pros
Users can easily make workflows with little IT support if the workflows aren't complicated. The GUI interface is so much better than SharePoint Designer and much less complicated than Visual Studio.

For fairly simple workflows, it is fantastic.
Cons
On the complicated items (using the web service, querying LDAP or manipulating data from any of those queries, there isn't detailed documentation.

When there is an issue, support is slow, doesn't follow up and then does now more than saying "put in a pause" or if you have pauses, they say "take out the pauses", but eventually you either stop using that particular thing or figure it out yourself. Don't count on their support at all.

Nintex Workflow 2010

Nintex is the best scalable integrated solution which speeds up Workflow design.

Product Reviews

Pros
It offers more enterprise level than SharePoint Designer and is easier than Visual Studio Workflows.
It is making use of standard workflow engine.
Cons
Includes custom solutions on the server you must consider when doing SP upgrades.
That seems to become better with the SP 2013 app model and the Nintex app.
