Overall Satisfaction with Pega Platform

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.
  • Positive: Application build time reduces to 40%-60%.
  • Positive: UI is well accepted.
  • Negative: Custom reports are hard to deal with.
  • 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.
