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.,8,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,AppianReview from a distanceIn my organization, Pega is being used by Finance Technology team.

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.

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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Machine learning, RPA should be better .
  • Should have better automatic unit testing (AUT).

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 is used in BPM world to implement rich solutions. Pega helps to implement healthcare, financial, and customer relations solutions.
  • The Pega foundation is robust and does not require you to build a product from scratch. The greatest advantage is the drag and drop development and Pega takes care of compatibility related issues.
  • Pega UI supports skinning, responsive and adaptive design.
  • The good part is Pega trains developers through proper certifications and it is well recognized in the industry.
  • UI components should be improved to match other frameworks in the industry
  • design.pega.com showcase components like radio segment, but there are no OTB components like that to use. It gives a feeling like something is available in Pega, but it is not.
  • Pega should also allow easy custom development without worrying much about upgrading the software in the future.
Pega takes care of industry standards and requirements. Most of the heavy lifting is already available in the Pega products and building custom solutions on top of the existing platform are ideal for quick development. Pega supports Robotics and AI which feels good [when] working with the latest technologies, thanks to continuous support of Pega and PDN support.

  • In PRPC, Users from IT and business to collaborate around the visual using use cases, workflows and service level agreement. Pegasystems’ primary strength is its unified architecture based on a powerful business rule management system (BRMS) and predictive analytics decision management engine. The platform combines process flow definitions, rule processing, data handling, cross-platform UIs, a complete mobile application development platform, BAM, content management, case management, application integration and other functions in one model-based development and runtime architecture that supports structured and unstructured process styles.
  • It's easy to automate people-centric and data-centric processes using PRPC platform. It also helps business users and IT team to develop application easily, integrate multiple data points and deliver value.
  • 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.

2) Its “data pages” capability is a highly flexible data structure that acts as a context broker to enrich process instance data with contextually relevant information from outside the iBPMS.
3) Pegasystems acquired OpenSpan, a desktop interaction discovery and robotic process automation tool, to provide a noninvasive, rapid time to solution for midmarket buyers

Pega Platform Review: "Transforming businesses with Inevitable constant change"

Pega Platform is being used across my whole organization. It is used to automate the Business processes to enhance productivity and efficiency of users. At the same time, it is being used to optimize the process flows. In my organization, Pega is being used to replace legacy systems and move away from manual steps being followed for disparate applications. It is also helping my organization to remain in compliance and enhance customer satisfaction with enhancing of brand image as well. The usage of intelligent routing, escalation, and prioritization for important tasks in Pega handles effectiveness of the work being performed. Pega uses dashboards and detailed audit trails to give tracking for all the work being performed.
  • Usage of Pega DCO enables the whole project team to perform their tasks with the same understanding. Business and Development teams are the main beneficiaries.
  • Audit trail for each case helps users to track the development happening on the case. All the past cases can be analyzed for specific information by looking at the tasks in the Audit trail of the case
  • Ease of development using the drag and drop features. Out of the box, features make development easy and the turnaround time is decreased. Tools like Tracer, SMA etc. helps in development tasks.
  • Reporting is not extensive in Pega. Because of this higher management is not able to get the reports which will give them insights into a different area. So Reporting functionality can be improved in Pega.
  • Organizations that want to fully use all the features of the Pega 7 platform must follow Pega’s solution development methodology which may not be aligned fully with the organization objectives.
  • During upgrades, some of the rules which are deprecated have to be changed to new available rules. This becomes a problem as one has to understand all the functionality and then change a lot of things.
Banking applications require tracking and compliance where it is suitable to use Pega and these features are the backbone of any Pega application.
Retail applications may not get enough value for money by using Pega as the processes are not complex. But still, Pega is a game changer for some of the retail companies who are operating in different geographies.

Pega Platform Review: "A business analyst's wet dream"

Score 10 out of 10

The Pega Platform is implemented for our clients by our Pega consultants. The platform is used by analysts, developers and a number of other roles within a single Pega implementation project. While Pega addresses a variety of business problems, I've found that intelligent next best action is currently the hottest pain point which Pega helps to solve.
  • It is exceptionally easy to translate business requirements into development items inside the Pega Platform. This speeds up development projects considerably.
  • Process building tools are much more intuitive than in other CRM systems I've come across. Again, this makes new development quicker
  • The UI is very responsive and stable for a browser application.
  • The training website is confusing to navigate.
  • The use case & added value for many features is unclear OR explained insufficiently
  • I would like to see more 3rd party applications and other "out-of-the-box" add-ons like in Salesforce.
As a business analyst/functional consultant, I love to use the Pega Platform because I can capture business requirements straight into the system. I can also construct processes in the system on the basis of process mapping workshops. Therefore, I don't need to use intermediate visualization tools like MS Visio. I think the one domain where Pega Platform is behind its competitors is producing decision-making material (reports & analytics) for high-level executives.
