.NET

One of our business requirements was to have field workers use their tablets to gather information. They may or may not be connected to the internet. Our .NET application allowed us to create this application and retain the data locally until they got back to the office to upload the data to a central server. The tablets were Android- and iOS-based so writing an application one time with .NET Core helped us out immensely.

Pega Platform

Pega is great for corporate web apps when a certain work flow or process can be improved through automation or a more stream lined process. It can handle forms and documents really well, integrates well with many different services (including other Pega apps), can handle very complex work flows and logic to basic things like user permissions and notifications. I would say it is less suited for small business needs. I would also say it is not that great at handling media or very interactive screens such as video (something I have personally never seen done).

  • All the Asp.NET applications are highly monitored and managed to help application available to handle requests.
  • The best part of .NET Framework is it has its own built-in caching features.
  • The content and the program logic are separated in the .NET Framework, thus reducing the program inconveniences.
  • Offers great security with the built-in Windows authentication and per-application configuration.

Pega Platform

  • Reusability
  • Pega’s Situational layer cake architecture is capable of organizing application to suit enterprise needs. An enterprise can have a complex organization structure located around the globe. Because of Situational layer cake architecture reusing common policies and procedures is easy while allowing for differences between products, regions, channels and customer segments.Whereas with some application development platforms, separate copies of the application should be created to suite different business context.
  • Faster application delivery
  • With Pega developers can reuse common policies and procedures, replicate functions and industry specific frameworks and utilize pega UI elements to develop applications. IT is easy to deploy.Therefore developers are capable of delivering application earlier compared to some application development platforms. Pega reduces time taken to deliver an outcome.
  • Pega upgrades
  • Pega platform is upddated to adapt and work with latest technologies.
  • Proprietary users support and maintain Pega platform continuously. Pega customer support is always willing to enhance product support.

Cons

.NET

  • Interacting with some of the core functionalities of the computer requires the user to know C++ and program using unmanaged code. However, I don't think this is a limitation that only applies to .NET.
  • .NET has a very powerful feature to allow generic access to objects, known as Language-Integrated Query or LINQ. Knowing how to use this feature is not required to create applications, but makes development much easier. Since it is not required, there is very little motivation to learn how to implement LINQ. It might be beneficial to promote this feature more heavily.
  • It is difficult to find a third area that could be improved with .NET.

Pega Platform

  • Pega’s Strategic Apps, Cobrowse and OpenSpan offerings appeal to midmarket customers, but Pega is not aggressively promoting Pega 7 and Pega Express as stand-alone iBPMS platforms to the midmarket.
  • Pega doesn't support powerful data or process modeling capabilities as compared to the other tools.
  • Pega doesn't support full extraction, transformation and loading capabilities as offered by other industry-leading tools. Pega support doesn't solve tickets correctly on-time.

.NET frameworks are fantastic overall. There are no limitations to what you can accomplish with it. The most important part is that you'll have access to developer community support and that .NET is always being improved every month. Be it in web applications, back-end servers, or integrations, .NET enables developers to do it all.

Minimal support is required from the product team, as Microsoft .NET has a great community platform where users can post their problems and also get the solutions to those problems. It is very rare that a solution can not be found. That is when it becomes necessary to get in touch with the Support Team and, in those cases, the solution is provided.

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.

Alternatives Considered

.NET

.Net platform is our primary option for developing newer solutions because of a lot of reasons, but in the past years, we have received a few requests in which we had to use Java SE. We had no big problem to use Java. Still, the productivity difference and the offer of documentation and skilled employes was the key decision to maintain our focus using .Net.

Pega Platform

Pega offers a business-friendly toolkit for defining applications. Unlike traditional BPM tools, there is much fewer complications, the technical syntax to handle in modeling processes and hardly any hard-coded programming. A well-trained business user can be trusted to create a business application from the Pegasystems BPM framework if desired. Pega also provides "Case Life cycle Management" - which allows any business user to capture and process the full scope of work in their operations, be it document handling, approvals, decision making, etc. These tasks can all be built into a process flow to automate as much as possible. The usage of design-once, the deploy-anywhere user interface has helped in saving a lot of effort.

Return on Investment

.NET

  • Microsoft .NET has allowed us to utilize and leverage an existing technology without having any extra dollar spend
  • Microsoft .NET is very popular and makes it much easier to find quality developers who can build Microsoft .NET applications
  • Microsoft .NET allows you to integrate everything form older systems to newer systems

Pega Platform

  • With our framework, we have been able to build new applications in 10% of the time/cost. Example, we built an application that took 8 months and 1.2 million k in a traditional .net environment and was able to build a similar application in 60 days for about 100k
  • Collaboration with the designer shaves weeks off the requirements gathering
  • Standard reporting is a launchpad that allows the users to accept the system without waiting for MIS reports to follow application build which often would usually delay use for 60 to 90, but not with Pega
