CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – May
19, 2009

Pegasystems Inc., (NASDAQ: PEGA), a
leader in Business Process Management (BPM) software solutions, today announced its new SmartPaaS Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering to enable
business people to quickly develop and deploy dynamic business
applications with all the benefits of cloud computing. This offering was
developed with the support of Amazon
Web Services

(AWS) and Capgemini.

This
new integrated offering packages Pegasystems’ business-driven Build for Change®
technology with best-in-class middleware solutions from IBM on the Amazon
Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) with Capgemini’s global Cloud Computing
Center of Excellence. With advanced tools for management, security, federation,
and composition, Pegasystems marries business agility with the cost advantages
of Amazon Web Services on demand technology infrastructure, providing instant scalability
and elasticity. Organizations looking to quickly implement business
transformation projects can engage their business people with the added benefits
of rapid deployment and provisioning. Pegasystems’ benchmarks demonstrate the
promise of implementing dynamic business applications in half the time and at
half the cost of traditional on-premise solutions.

“Our
customers are demanding ever increasing business agility, which is driving a
dramatic growth in the number of BPM applications with fluctuating usage
patterns,” said Alan Trefler, Chairman and CEO of Pegasystems.  “Pegasystems’ SmartPaaS, leveraging Amazon
Web Services, IBM, and Capgemini, will enable our customers to scale their
infrastructure on-demand while significantly improving speed of project
completion that drives down the total cost of ownership.”

“We
are pleased that Pegasystems can extend to their corporate clients a cloud
infrastructure that addresses the integration, security, and performance needs
that their businesses require,” said Terry Wise, Director of Business
Development for Amazon Web Services. “The combination of Pegasystems and
the AWS cloud provides enterprises of all sizes the ability to quickly and cost
effectively improve and innovate their business processes.”

“We
are very pleased to be adding Pega’s SmartPaaS to our portfolio of cloud offerings,
and helping clients to increase their business agility and substantially lower
costs,” said Simon Plant, Product Lead for Cloud Computing at Capgemini. “This
