Cambridge, Mass. – December 4, 2012 – Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leader in Business Process Management (BPM) and a leading provider of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions, today announced that the company is significantly upgrading ERP solutions with its new Pega Process Extender, which enables organizations to rapidly leverage SAP applications with new work automation and user experience capabilities.  

 

Pega has significant experience complementing SAP applications, and large enterprises can now take advantage of all of Pega’s market-leading BPM, dynamic case management and next-best-action solutions to unlock and leverage the data, logic and processes in SAP.  Combining Pega and SAP has proven to improve the speed and accuracy with which clients bring new products to market and better serve internal and external constituencies.  

 

“Over 60% of our customer base uses SAP to handle ERP processes, with Pega’s dynamic case management solutions interacting with SAP to get work done across the enterprise,” said Alan Trefler, Founder and CEO at Pegasystems.  “With Pega, organizations can use our Process Extender to keep up with the pace of change in their business, while maximizing their SAP investments.  This enables our clients to rapidly seize business opportunities, improve the customer experience, and meet increasing regulatory requirements.” 

 

“Forrester identified a tipping point two years ago away from the corset of enterprise resource planning (ERP) industry best practices toward investments in frameworks and platforms that enable app customization without writing and testing code and without jeopardizing upgrade path,” wrote George Lawrie, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., in an August 10, 2011 report, Delivering Custom Apps for Competitive Advantage.
