Free 30 day trial allows users to easily prototype new applications without formal training

ORLANDO, Fla. – June 8, 2015 – Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company empowering the world's leading enterprises with strategic business applications, today announced Pega 7 Express, which simplifies the design and development experience of the Pega 7 Platform to allow business and IT users to get started quickly without formal training. Pega 7 Express will be available as a 30-day free trial sandbox. This multi-tenant service is powered by Pega Cloud. Pega 7 Express will be demoed for the first time at PegaWORLD this week in Orlando, Fla.

With Pega 7 Express, users can build, test, and prototype straightforward business applications on the Pega 7 Platform, the same software used in enterprise-wide, transformational deployments by the Global 2000. Since Pega 7 Express is a core part of the Pega 7 Platform, applications built in Pega 7 Express can seamlessly evolve to take advantage of the full functionality of Pega 7.

Pega 7 Express provides a highly intuitive environment that includes embedded product tours, videos, and instructional text.
