Pegasystems’ Double Success in Third Annual Leaders in Innovation Awards 2008

Reading, UK, 8 December 2008: Reinforcing its position as the top provider of rules-based BPM software, Pegasystems (NASDAQ: PEGA) has been named as winner of two categories in the prestigious financial-i Leaders in Innovation Awards 2008, announced today.

The Awards, now in their third year, recognise excellence in global transaction banking and Pegasystems has been named winner of both the BPM category within Network Services and the Exceptions and Investigation category within Risk Management.

In each case the award nominations were made by an advisory panel of leading industry analysts, consultants and market practitioners and focused on innovation over the past 12 months. Despite the current pressures on global transaction banking, financial-i believes that innovation is flourishing, even in a difficult economic climate: “In light of the challenges the business now faces in terms of heightened regulatory oversight, new competitive threats and a subdued operating environment, innovations that clearly differentiate providers and save time, money and manpower, are even more compelling.”

“The financial-i Awards provide an important independent endorsement of Pegasystems’ continuing commitment to innovation,” says chairman and CEO, Alan Trefler. “And, as our recent investment in a major new research and development facility in Hyderabad, India demonstrates, we are determined to stay at the forefront of technology development in meeting the growing global demand for leading-edge BPM solutions.”
