CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct 27, 2006 — Pegasystems (Nasdaq: PEGA), the leader in unified process and rules technology, hosted its most successful thought leadership conference to date, with approximately 600 participants at Boston's Seaport World Trade Center demonstrating how the world's most innovative companies are using Pegasystems' rules-based Business Process Management (BPM) software to guide interaction among people, policies, systems and data.
