    Drools

    As an open source rule engine and product suite, Drools is well suited for the small and middle scale business to manage and integrate the rules to build the rule-driven system which can process the business-critical data and events to produce the automated decision. It is better to use Drools in the well-secured environment (back-end behind the DMZ), not putting it on the customer-facing front or exposing it directly the to public where may bring direct security risk in the enterprise environment. Drools still needs a lot hardening on the security side.

    Pega Platform

    Pega Platform has introduced the low code feature, using app studio seasonal and professional developer can develop application easily and quickly. The initial application can be build by Business analyst and product owner who has less knowledge of Pega Platform, further application can be enhanced/extended by professional developer. We can develop end to end application and promote to higher environment. Easily we can perform parallel development using branch.

    Pros

    • separate business logic from program code

    Pega Platform

    • Quick development time. Much of the Pega "rules" are easy to configure and implement.
    • Visually friendly and modern. Much of the UI/UX elements in the system are continuously supported and updated, giving a nice feel to the apps.
    • Many of the configurations and rules Pega gives to the developers can also be delegated to business users. The organization and structure of the client's business can easily be adapted in the Pega platform.

    Cons

    Drools

    • Fusion doesn't support persistence of working memory, which brings some extra high availability risk to our business.
    • Guvnor still has a lot room to be implemented, it is not so user-friendly for non-technical people, so a lot of business users complain it is hard to master.
    • Rule execution server doesn't even have JMX implemented, hard to be monitored.
    • Drools is still lacking support for key Web services standards.

    Pega Platform

    • Need more learning materials. For Beginners who have previous programming experience with another language takes more time to learn.
    • If the developer is met with an issue in pega platform , they have to rely on Pega supporting team to fix it.
    • Customization is available but is not encouraged. Pega does not support faults that occur in customized solutions.

    Pega Platform is enhancing its product and launching new features day by day which help to achieve customers needs. If I talk about the earlier version of Pega Platform (i.e. pega v5 and 6.3) there were many numbers of limitations in Pega Platform and if we need to do some customization then needed to write custom java and jave scripts to achieve the functionally. Now I can say Pega Platform is running with market trends and demand. Pega Platform is giving all the options which support the current technologies like decisioning capabilities, real time processing, mashup, process fabrics etc..

    It’s very slow sometimes, but that may be our servers. Also the Knowledge Library needs some work - again, not sure if it’s our setup or what- but I’m unable to search the body of an article for content, so I have to be very intentional with tagging, but it’s not ideal.

    The online training is an excellent one, but still it is missing hands on development.

    I did not participate in drools choice. I can only compare drools with the previous situation which was using nothing.

    Pega Platform

    We did evaluate multiple products offerings with Pega Platform capabilities and observed that Pega PRPC rules engine and case management capabilities are better over so many BPM Tools. We also conducted a detailed study with developers to identify the best products out of Suite of BPM products. It's observed that Rules engines integration is very streamlined with forms in Pega whereas other tools multiple have powerful data model capabilities but lacks the ease of creating business rules.

    Return on Investment

    Drools

    • The IT department quickly adopted Drools as it is a very good java-based rule engine, which saves a lot of time to meet the project timeline and balanced our business requirements.
    • Recently we start considering the OpenRules, which may be more business user-friendly.

    Pega Platform

    • For one of the applications we worked on, we were able to reduce the processing time on a case from 2 days to 20 minutes by utilizing Pega
    • We were able to resolve the issue of the routing of cases to users based on a specific algorithm by use of Pega
    • Pega case management feature was extensively used in one of the application to establish a parent-child relationship which was very helpful for all the business users
