Pegasystems Announces SmartBuild Release for Software Design; Built-in Design Methodology is Industry First

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 10, 2005 — Pegasystems Inc. (Nasdaq: PEGA), the leading provider of smart business process management (BPM) software, today announced availability of a new release of its SmartBPM Suite featuring built-in design and implementation support.


Pegasystems' SmartBuild BPM release provides real-time feedback for software designers, including, for example, an analysis of best-practice class structures and flexible property controls. By monitoring solutions while they are being developed, customers are able to ensure ongoing optimal results.


"SmartBuild tools and services can be overlaid onto a customer's own best practices for system design and implementation to provide continuous improvement and reusability benefits," said Jay Sherry, Vice President, BPM Markets, Pegasystems. "SmartBuild includes the benefits of more than 20 years of experience delivering some of the most demanding BPM and business-rules engagements in the industry. With this release, we have established a new benchmark by building in capabilities to our SmartBPM Suite that actually help ensure best practices — something no one else in the market is doing."


"By helping users to build smart, we are empowering our customers and partners to Build for Change. We are very pleased to be the first in the industry to offer built-in methodology diagnostics and intelligence into our product," commented Alan Trefler, Chairman and CEO of Pegasystems.


The release also includes on-going enhancements for J2EE architects, including a new EJB (Enterprise Java Bean) interface to the business-rules services, published rule-services APIs to make it even easier for Java application developers to embed Pegasystems rules functionality in disparate applications typical in deployments that start with business rules, improved J2EE specific failover and reliability support for massively scaled solutions across a cluster of J2EE application servers.
