CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Mar 31, 2005 — Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leading provider of smart business process management (BPM) software, today announced IBM's validation for Grid Computing of the Pegasystems' J2EE SmartBPM Suite™, including PegaRULES Process Commander.®
Pegasystems' technical leadership was demonstrated while operating with IBM's "Parallel Services" Grid Strategy, specifically designed for solutions architected to leverage Grid computing power. The comprehensive testing occurred at the IBM Innovation centers in Waltham, MA (US) and Hursley, England (UK).
Pegasystems used the IBM WebSphere® J2EE platform running simultaneously across geographically dispersed Linux servers on pSeries, xSeries, and zSeries hardware. This deployment model demonstrates PegaRULES Process Commander engines orchestrating parallel Web Services across heterogeneous hardware platforms on multiple continents.
"Our customers are looking for agility and productivity," said Jay Sherry, Vice President of BPM and Solution Marketing for Pegasystems. "This Grid deployment model strategically complements our multi-tier Web/EJB model and JMS, Web Services, and JCA connectivity. Pegasystems' change-aware, self-distributing J2EE component technology lets customers specialize rules and processes to respond instantly to shifting conditions. This validation shows how we leverage IBM's market-leading WebSphere and DB2 platforms to deliver flexible and resilient SmartBPM solutions.
