Criteria items to consider evaluating BPMN products?

Hey all,
What criteria should one consider when evaluating BPMN products? I know each selection would have different weight than others, but would be nice to have a beginners-guide to (what should be) available features.

For example, I've been seeing the following:
*Task Form support (some type of easy, business-friendly way to create forms for human tasks)

*User/Role management - using either built-in methods, or swimlanes, to handle role management of human tasks.

*Integration options - a lot try to sell on a high level of integration (i.e. ESB or EAI slapped beside the workflow)

But, what criteria should one expect to review for a good BPMN product?

Thanks, and posting for a chance at the BPMN 2 Training Course as I'm actively learning this stuff now!

Hi Darren,

Have a look at the post:

What are the popular commercial and open source BPM and work flow products?


in this forum. I have started a list. Perhaps we should move it under your post.

I don’t think we can move posts like that, but we can always make a link to them: here.
