Pegasystems Listed in Leader Quadrant in "Business Rules Engine Market" Report

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 22, 2005 — Gartner, Inc.'s "Magic Quadrant"(a) report evaluating the leading companies in the business-rules engine (BRE) market positions Pegasystems (NASDAQ: PEGA) in the "Leader" quadrant, Pegasystems Inc. announced today.

According to Gartner, leaders are performing well today, have a clear vision of market direction, and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market. "The increased emphasis on business agility is driving many organizations to BREs, among other agility-focused technologies," wrote Jim Sinur, Gartner, Vice President and Distinguished Analyst. "Other agility technologies include business process management, Web Services, and model-driven generators. The phrase might be 'on-demand' or 'just-in-time,' but there is a premium on agility for most business sectors today, and we only expect the demand for agility to increase during the next 10 years."

Pegasystems' rules-engine technology is the foundation of its smart business process management (BPM) solutions, which manage a broad array of complex, changing processes. "We're long past the point where a hard-coded application can satisfy the pace of today's market demands," said Pegasystems CEO Alan Trefler. "Pegasystems' unification of business rules with business processes provides customers real-time business agility that can broadly improve business effectiveness."

The report evaluated a wide range of rules-engine vendors. To be included in the report, companies had to market and sell their rules engines as a separate product, have more than $3 million in rules-engine revenue, and have 10 referenceable clients. The rules engines themselves had to include explicit rules, more than one form of rule representation, management features, truth maintenance, and/or global rule-firing results.
