We use Pega Platform to create a unified decision hub to centralize all marketing decisions to trigger all campaigns and channel interactions. We are also currently replacing our legacy CRM with Pega CRM. Our goal is to eliminate silos to provide a unified customer engagement platform so our business interacts with customers in a relevant and contextualized fashion.
  • Adaptive analytics - Pega platform allows you to feed data from all your interactions into their interaction history so it learns from past behavior and it starts predicting the best course of action.
  • Pega BPM - Business process management engine allows you to specify various business rules on a WYSIWYG way so you can visually understand all the process flow.
  • Pega provides a robust list of use cases on their website where you can learn how other companies implemented the platform and the pitfalls they overcame. Very helpful to also attend their user conference, PegaWorld.
  • Pega is a very robust platform but it requires lots of technical help to set it up. It would be helpful if Pega created business templates with best practices to follow, based on all their industry experience.
  • Pega academy is a great resource but only available for clients. I wish this resource was available for those on the evaluation phase so they can learn more about what next-best-action marketing is.
  • Pega is a low-code platform which doesn't excite most of the developers as they normally love to develop in new and exciting languages. I wish Pega helped facilitate the transition for developers to low code platform. It's a culture change not always easy to accomplish.
Pega may be very helpful if your company wants to move beyond just marketing automation and into integrating marketing with all internal processes. In our company we see marketing as more than just branding and advertising, but really as a way to facilitate great customer experiences. Pega works well if you share this vision. If you're only looking for a platform to run your advertising and campaigns than Pega may be too much for you.
Pega is a great platform but you must be careful to choose an implementation partner that works well with your company culture. Our first implementation partner was not a good fit and we struggled through the first round of deployment until we find two other partners (one for Marketing and another for CRM) who truly understood and worked well with our company.

We use it to lay over an outdated system that our customer service agents use to support our customers as well as Pega Knowledge for articles for agents to have access to information within the system they are supporting. We only use it in CS, other departments are not using it yet.
  • Knowledge Articles
  • Task Oriented
  • Slow
  • Training
Good for customer service to use instead of DOS like black screens, but bad for trying to train customer service (no sandbox environment, at least for us) since they can’t “completely” perform a task prior to going to a live environment. The knowledge is fairly good, except you can’t search the body of an article which is weird.
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.

We use Pega across our department to address a workforce management automation issue that we had. Previously, my team was manually assigning field technicians to work requests that we received for our data centres. Pega is now helping us automate that assignment, and also choose the best resource for the job based on logic we have inputted.
  • Pega platform allows us to build a totally customizable UI
  • Pega allows us to build logic that replaces decisioning, removing a lot of manul touch
  • Pega has proven relatively simple to intergrate other tools with because of its open API
  • I wanted my technician appointments visualized in a calendar, chronologically, and in a way that they could drag and drop appointments in order to manage their time.
  • Pega's filtering capability on custom dashboards is very limited. When one of my agents does a custom search, and then opens a ticket from the results, when they go back to the results, all of the results have dissapeared and they have to search again. We should be able to click 'back' and have the results saved.
I think Pega is an excellent platform for any transactional, repeatable task that is currently managed manually by agents needing to be automated.
Whenever we have run into issues with our implementation, Pega seems to be readily available to support with a solution or provide direction. We have also made use of Pega Professional Services as an add on to our current integrator services and it has sped up much of our implementation on particular applications.

Pega Platform is used for one of our client applications, which is related to banking. This platform is mostly used for creating web-based applications in an organization where companies have a process flow. The case management feature in Pega is used for problems like raising service requests in call centres, monitoring and auto resolution of those cases in a defined SLA. This also supports automated processing that does not need manual intervention.
  • Case management feature
  • Browser-based applications. You don't need any software installation on the machine to access Pega
  • Background processing of the process flows
  • Well defined intuitive out of the box UI available which needs less customization
  • Supports both front end and backend applications
  • None
Well suited for handling customer queries via service requests (which are called cases). These cases can be viewed/ worked upon at multiple stages by multiple teams before resolutions in Pega Platform.
Pega has a strong codebase with a lot of features available out of the box for almost every domain. It also has multiple frameworks that can support any organization's IT needs.

Our organization uses Pega Platform for case management and app development in our department. We provide solutions to our business needs using the Pega Platform. Our apps are built using the Pega platform and features. It addresses problems like employee management, which reduces a lot of the man hours that are put into carrying out the business.
  • Case Management
  • Easily configurable User Interface
  • Invoking Service APIs
  • SR's Hotfixes
  • Data management
  • Designer studio latencies
Pega Platform will specifically come in handy and will be very useful if your business needs are to be dealing with a lot of data collection, in considerably large data completion forms. It is less appropriate in fulfilling some complex business needs like invoking APIs that are hosted by an external server. Or if the business needs to have a lot of mobile development.

We are using Pega as a CRM ticketing system to track customers interactions and document call center cases. It is being used across multiple departments. It is very good at documenting customer's calls, addressing customer's inquiries, and transferring cases between departments. It is also good for building a workflow for multi-step cases, like opening a bank account or any other scenario where multiple steps are needed.
  • It has very good potential to be customized to fit your needs.
  • Browser base so it can run on any computer with a browser only. No installation needed.
  • Java base but no coding required for the most part except some advanced things that might require some coding.
  • Easy to update when a new version becomes available as long you do not have a lot of customization and you try to utilize the out of the box features.
  • Pega uses so much new jargon that you need to learn. For example, Harness.
  • So many drill-downs: every time you need to create something you end up with 5 tabs to drill-down.
  • For example, if you are adding a property with a when rule you keep drilling down to create everything and it can get a little more difficult to keep track of where you are.
  • It can be customized to do anything you need and it is difficult and not recommend.
If you need a good CRM for your customer service team to track customers interactions and you like to manage it without coding, it is a perfect option. It is very good for any case with multiple steps. For example, a bank, health insurance company, or auto insurance quote application.

The purpose of the project is to automate the Wire Processing process in the Advisor Desktop and Front Office Wire Initiation system (FWI) applications. A Wire request is received from the Advisor desktop’s “FWI- Bot queue,” the virtual analyst will then pick the request from this queue and key in the wire in FWI system following the business logic corresponding to the wire type.
  • It is good working on Pega robotics. It makes work easier and simple. It is easy to automate work using Pega robotics' automation.
  • Good support of custom code so you can extend functionality.
  • Automation of desktop or web application.
I am using Pega to automate our desktop or web application. This is the perfect platform to scale the work on demand. The average developer can extend the functionality.

We are using the Pega platform to build custom workflow applications across the organization. I am leading the effort for our back office work to seamlessly orchestrate and automate complex service requests for our customers. We have engaged E&Y to help build a foundation framework where each workflow use case can leverage the common structures.
  • The Pega platform has enabled us to quickly develop end to end tracking of back-office processes along with a myriad of integration points to legacy systems to automate a number of manual steps.
  • Out of the box reporting and dashboards have saved time for our business partners in adapting to the new processes and managing to metrics in real time.
  • Prototypes of the workflow are invaluable in gaining a quick validation of the workflow with end users. With Pega, we are able to build those models very quickly.
  • The features themselves are not difficult to use, but I think Pega oversells the simplicity to non-technology organizations. While workflow can be built with minor training, having the proper data models and class structures established are critical to long-term success.
  • Out of the box, error handling can be confusing to a novice developer in Pega. Pega can handle exceptions automatically but the default “broken queue” concept can get messy and ultimately result in work that sits unnoticed by end users and creates extra work for the support team.
  • Experienced Pega engineers are in short supply and therefore more expensive than most other developers.
Pega is well suited for developing applications that manage fairly straightforward stages and steps based workflows. Complex workflows can be built but are more difficult to maintain and modernize, particularly when required to deviate from basic out of the box features and writing custom code. This risk is mitigated by experienced Pega architects setting and enforcing design practices.

In my organization, Pega is being used by Finance Technology team. We use Pega in the following segments: -
  1. 1. to build an approval workflow for Account Payable and Account Receivable
  2. Business Problem - Automation of approval based on pre-defined rules, routing hierarchy, escalation matrix and on-time reporting
  3. 2. to build a Collection framework
  4. Business Problem - Automation of collection processes without manual interventions, the notification system.
  • Pega provides frameworks for various domains. This speed-ups the development process.
  • Routing, Notification, Assignment, Escalation - these are inbuilt features in Pega. Without minimal configuration, these can be used to solve business problems.
  • Pega's responsive user interface helps to create software products for different devices.
  • Pega has a very rich support community.
  • Handling big data, like a file with 10GB of data.
  • Integration with NoSQL databases.
  • Customize reporting.
  • Using Java8 features like Lambda functions or Stream APIs.
  • Integration with popular web services, like Amazon S3, KMS, DynamoDB etc.
  • Well Suited - Domain specific problems, especially where task routing, assignment, notification & escalation are involved.
  • Less Suited - a framework to handle large data, for example, if you want to process a CSV file with 10GB size with 10 million rows.

My current client is using Pega Platform for a department. It is used for call center customer service and workflow management of 80 type of different requests. Also, it is used for updating the backend legacy systems.
  • Pega is a robust and reliable product for development and production management. Its core strength is scalability and ease of reusability of code with int he application and as well as leveraging the application into a different line of business/channels.
  • Easy Management of multiple teams who are developing code at the fast pace. The deployment process is so quick in Pega7. Pega development enforces and suggests the involvement of business teams from starting and in each phase. It offers good tools to showcase the changes.
  • Now Pega evolved even bigger by introducing and including the Decision Strategy manager and robotics which are cutting edge technologies now. Pega offered REST APIs and development of services is quite fast and supporting the wide range of protocols.
  • Pega can improve user interface features. Most of the cases business expect different kind of user interface and styles which is a kind of time taking in comparison with other areas and sometimes may not possible.
  • Pega can introduce more features in Reports. Reports performance can be improved. It would be great if business and developers are given with more features to customize the reports.
It is highly recommended ats workflow/case lifecycle management systems. Customer Service, Claims processing, warranty support systems, etc.. It is highly recommended as an enterprise service bus for offering the services across different applications. Robotics are recommended for robotic processing.

It is one of the finest BPNM tools out there and has been used to provide a solution to partially automate many processes for which a team of 10 to 15 people was required earlier. Used an established framework also helped in saving a lot of money in research and development of a completely new in-house tool.
  • The learning curve is not very high which helped in quickly integrating newbies to the team and train them.
  • It has a lot of deployment ready features e.g : a ready to deploy cross platform UI with minimal customization, engines to handle business rules and a robust data handling engine.
  • New state of the art features like IOT integration and analytics are added benefits.
  • It is a solution which can be quickly customized for a market-ready product but there is are limitations on that. To go beyond a certain limit needs professionals which are hard to find.
Pega is very well suited to automate existing business process which requires a moderate amount of automation. A solution built with it can be deployed in quick time and since the learning curve is low, newbies can be easily integrated into the team to work on development. But specialist professionals are hard to come by when more advanced requirements are the need of the hour. The documentation is surprisingly sparse, pdn being the only primary reference.

My organization works as System Integrator so we use Pega Platform to build Solutions that accomplish our client's requirements. At this moment, we're working for a very important Italian Telco Operator, building a new solution to manage the sale of product and service to its customers. The Pega Platform offers an "all-in-one" experience avoiding multiple interoperating legacy systems.
  • It allows a fast delivery of new requirements thanks to the perfect integration with Agile and DevOps
  • Allows multiple parallels developments in "independent" areas, so multiple requirements can be implemented avoiding long development time.
  • Extreme modularity, its rules can be personalized or differentiated by the environment, user profile, localization and so on using few and simple configurations.
  • CPQ can be extended with a more powerful eligibility/compatibility features.
Pega can be addressed as BPM engine, Thanks to its powerful integration mechanisms; with its vertical customization (Insurance, Claim, etc...), it allows a very positive experience in a more complex end-to-end experience. I think that Pega has to enforce its CRM features and CPQ.

In my organisation we are using Pega Platform in one department which is AES i.e Application Engineering Services. We have built an application on Pega for insurance domain basically used for handling premiums and claims for London Market.

Earlier it was all paper work and complex processes which Brokers had to undergo for processing premiums and claims but with Pega application coming into the picture all these are processes are simplified and automated.
  • The big advantage is we don't have to have to build the system from the scratch like any conventional programming.
  • 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.
  • Design-once, deploy-anywhere user interface-saves a lot of effort.
  • Less coding, adopts changes and quick developments.
  • Should focus on improving the search engine on PDN training.
  • Very costly tool for small scale companies.
  • Pega’s Strategic Apps, CoBrowse and OpenSpan offerings appeal to mid-market customers, but Pega is not aggressively promoting Pega 7 and Pega Express as stand-alone iBPMS platforms to the mid-market
A business friendly toolkit for defining applications. Unlike traditional BPM tools, there are much less complicated, technical syntax to handle in modelling 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.

In our organization we as system architects configure the application to resolve the problem. We configure application assets such as UI forms, automated decisions and correspondence. Then we review the application with business for approvals.
  • Versioning: We can create a new version of a rule whenever case behavior needs to change. Pega maintains a history of changes to a rule, allowing system architects to review the change history and undo changes if needed. Since each rule describes a specific case behavior, the rest of the case is unaffected. For example, a system architect updates a UI form with instructions and removes a critical field. You can review the history of the form and revert back to the version before the changes were made, without changing other rules in the application.
  • Delegation: We can delegate rules to business users to allow business users to update case behavior as business conditions change. The business user updates the delegated rule, while other parts of the application remain unchanged. For example, expense reports that total USD25 or less are approved automatically. You create a rule to test whether an expense report totals USD25 or less and delegate the rule to the Accounting department. The Accounting department can then update the rule to increase the threshold for automatic approval increases to USD50, without submitting a change request for the application.
  • Reuse: We can reuse rules whenever an application needs to incorporate existing case behavior. Otherwise, you must reconfigure the behavior every time the behavior is needed. For example, you create a UI form to collect policyholder information for auto insurance claims. You can then reuse this UI form for property insurance claims and marine insurance claims.
  • N/A
Build a Banking Application where customers can check for loan, insurance status based on the loan numbers provided. Customers register with bank, login to the portal and search for the loan status. Create a portal for applying loan / insurance claim which is routed to manager for approval upon successful background verification. Once approved, email customers for notification. Invalid applications go to false claims table for rejection. Also create a portal for banking payments to other banks for existing customers via NEFT/IMPS

Pega platform is used to build customer care applications which are used by customer care agents. Agents use the applications to file claims for customers and service them. It is used to capture all the details from the customers about their issues and tag it to the claims.

The application manages end to end life cycle of claims.

We have multiple applications built in Peg, for claims management and fraud management.
  • Pega is a Business Process Management tool. It can be used to manage the business flows, and enables us to quickly build end to end applications . It can also be integrated with legacy systems.
  • It can be used to automate lots of manual tasks, by using its back end agents features. It can also get updates from other systems and process claims without any manual intervention
  • Pega has out of the box reporting and dashboards which can be used to manage the metrics.
  • Pega has to come up with ways to integrate with cloud, which is ubiquitous now. The tools should change to adapt it.
  • Pega has to improve in providing detailed documentation for all its features. There is very little documentations on some features like high availability.
  • Pega has to come up with ways to implement A/B testing. In the current world there is no time to deploy and rollback.
Pega is well Suited for
  • Building business process applications which have assignments, routing and escalations.
  • Best suited for customer care applications.

Less suited for
  • applications which have the system of records in some other system (ie) For claims application the claims details has to be in pega, if the info has to be fetched from some other system it makes the application slow.

We are service providers for our customers and we are suggesting our customers use Pega for Business Process Management. As we don't have to have to build the system from the scratch. We design the Business Process Flow for our Finance processes. We can have dashboards, reports and also many administrative tasks. There are also notifications/integration as well as SLA escalations built in the tool.
  • Pega Platform architecture combines process flow definitions, data handling, case management and other functions in model-based development.
  • A non-coding approach based on rules with inheritance helps Pega more attractive product
  • Pega's "data pages" capability is a highly flexible data structure.
  • Pega's another advantage is that we can design it once and deploy it anywhere
  • Like IBM BPM Pega doesn't have integration capability. We expect a good array of products which suits needs of various requirements. IBM's strength is its integration capability.
  • There is a scope of improvement of ruleset and version control management.
  • Its terminology is somewhat difficult to understand for a new developer
Our customers' businesses are with healthcare and insurance domains which have multiple business ends and all of them needs to connect to business processes in the end. Pega achieved this goal of designing them and now most of the processes are running on Pega Platform. It also replaced the existing manual intensive business processes.

In my organisation, we use Pega for payroll processing.
  • Pega is the Best BPM tool when working with large projects whose user radius is across the globe. It is flexible, scalable.
  • It allows a fast delivery of new requirements, easy to deliver in Agile model
  • Best data processing capabilities
  • Less customization
  • Easy to transform business requirements into Workflows and rules
  • No support for minor customizations from Pega team .Ex: I need a calendar icon which can display holidays. They could not support me with this.
  • Documentation about new enhancements in pdn is not complete.
  • Reports are not enhanced for a long time. We need more scalable features in Reports.
  • Latency issue
Pega Platform is the best BPM tool with more modularity, scalability and best case management features. Very much suitable for Banking, health insurance, and Finance projects. The platform is used by analysts, developers and a number of other roles within a single Pega implementation project. The Pega product enhancements launched every year reduces a lot of customization. Pega is not suitable for Reporting type projects because reporting is not enhanced.

Pega platform is used in my organisation for health insurance projects. We have a huge user base who use this application to get approvals for insurance.
  • Fast development and delivery, very good for Agile projects.
  • Pega Support Community is a great forum to learn new concepts.
  • It's very scalable and flexible.
  • Pega needs to improve in terms of training on new upgrades of Pega.
  • The Pega team themselves do not provide history and description for its rules. No proper documentation.
  • Machine learning, RPA should be better .
  • Should have better automatic unit testing (AUT).
  • Reporting needs improvements.
Pega is very well suited for projects with big user bases. It's not suitable when we need to hold large chunks of data for processing.

We use the Pega platform across the whole organization to provide Business solutions to our clients. Pega is our main Process Management System to solve our client's requirements.
  • Decisioning. Pega exceeds expectations to provide solutions to complex business requirements and integration.
  • Scalability. Pega is designed to support any size of process management and can quickly grow and adapt for future business needs.
  • Rapid Change. Pega solves the problem of implementing a new requirement in an existing system. System Architects can add, remove or change any type of process on the go.
  • Pega is so big and complex that implementing a rather easy requirement can be overwhelming .
  • Pega requires a lot of knowledge to implement any kind of requirement. There are several levels of certifications in order to properly use the tool.
  • Some basic programming knowledge is not enough to learn to use Pega. Some features even go against general programming rules.
Pega is perfect to implement Process Management for any kind of company, by using each process as a case type, they all can be managed in one single system. This eliminates the need to maintain several systems in parallel.

  • Inheritance is two-directional allowing for reuse
  • Better access to the database for hosted solutions
  • Lower cost for smaller applications and businesses
  • The upgrade can be easier
  • Provide guardrails when code will prevent upgrades
It is very well suited for the workflow process and implementing business process across companies. It is not well suited for transaction-based processing.

Pega Platform is the platform that holds all department applications, more and more legacy mainframe applications are moving to Pega, it's becoming the major development environment. Pega helped all different applications across department into a unified portal/platform, ITO is easy to maintain and could build almost everything into it.
  • Fast delivery, the release cycle is 2 weeks
  • Less coding, easy to learn and handy after few months training.
  • Stable and easy to get support, Pega provides PDN, it can be used for technical question/answers, any problem can be sorted out by raising service report
  • DCO is powerful, Business and Teck team can both using the same platform
  • I would hope Pega can provide more features for mobile apps.
Pega Platform is well suited for web applications and quickly set up the workflows. Less appropriate for mobile as what we experienced so far.
