Pegasystems Named a Leader in Independent Research on Business Rules Platforms

Forrester, a leading independent technology research firm, evaluated 13 platforms from 11 vendors using 175 different criteria that organizations consider when selecting a Business Rules Management System. Forrester evaluated these vendors based on the strength of their current offering as well as overall strategy. The report found Pegasystems to have the highest score for Current Offering with respect to the broadest feature sets and named the company one of three “resounding Leaders as general-purpose business rules platforms.”
According to the report, Business Rules Management Systems have become a “key enabling technology for Dynamic Business Applications because they enable applications to be built for change.”  The report goes on to say that business rules help companies “manage their business rules independently of applications,” allow “businesspeople to author and maintain business rules,” and empower “IT to create rules services for SOA environments.”

In addition to the overall Wave report on Business Rules Platforms for Broadest Feature Sets, Forrester also named Pegasystems as a leader in Business Rules Platforms for Business Analysts and as a strong performer in .NET and Java Developers.

“We are pleased that Forrester recognizes the importance of business rules in creating dynamic business applications that are built for change,” said Pegasystems Founder and CEO, Alan Trefler. “In fact, we call our unified business rules and process offering Build for Change® technology. Every day, Pegasystems’ customers benefit from the kind of business agility that this new approach delivers.”
