Pegasystems Founder and CEO Alan Trefler to Speak at Gartner BPM Summit

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – September 8, 2008 – Pegasystems (NASDAQ: PEGA) founder and CEO Alan Trefler will deliver his annual luncheon presentation at the Gartner Business Process Management Summit 2008 on Wednesday, September 10, 2008, at 12:45 pm, entitled Is Your SOA Strategy DOA? In his address, Trefler will not only ask attendees to examine the state of their SOA initiatives, but will describe how today's business organization can best help itself survive the pitfalls of a “duct oriented architecture.”   He will present at the Gaylord National, National Harbor 4-5.

“Getting BPM value out of SOA takes more than simply acquiring and adding additional ducts,” said Trefler. “When the user interface is immediate, dynamic and shared, end users and business users are engaged at the outset. Unlike simply adding and acquiring parts, providing the agility to build for change leads to more innovation and ideas that boost that level of engagement and ultimately help to deliver on SOA’s promise of saving businesses time and money.”

Gartner’s Business Process Management Summit offers the latest insight on creating and sustaining an agile process-powered organization to help organizations align business strategy and IT to maximize operational agility, providing new opportunities to expand revenues and productivity. The Summit will be held September 10 - 12 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
