    Hi Thomas,

    My experience has taught me that there is no one architecture or bpm tool that is the best. You have to look at the specifics of the nature of transactions in the industry domain, and then go out and study all available tools all over again to see which one might be the best fit.

    There are so many tools available, and each has its place in the universe.

    There's the IBM set, then there's Black Duck, there's Cordys, there's Readiminds..............

    You need to look at what level of the enterprise and domain you are looking at using the tool for, and then consider several more things:

    1. the type of inhouse skills available

    2. the cost of acquisition, time taken to get up and running, and usage of each tool

    3. the cost of training on tool usage

    4. ease of use

    5. applicability of features to the nature of the problem

    6. political considerations (yes, its a fact of life, but sometimes you need to go with what your boss wants) :)

    7. the credentials of the tool vendor (have they been around for long, and will they last as long as you need them to)

    8. what kind of support the vendor can provide you in your part of the world

    9. the amount of adaptation your work environment might need to use the tool

    10. how generic the tool should be vs how specialised (eg, Readiminds is best suited to financial crime, security, risk and compliance management, etc)

    11. initial purchase costs vs recurring costs of the tool vs your budget!!

    12. Ease of hiring external skills if needed

    Hope this helps!
