(NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company empowering customer engagement at the world’s leading enterprises, today announced at PegaWorld that Forrester Research has named Pegasystems a leader in the latest The Forrester Wave™ report evaluating Real-Time Interaction Management (RTIM) solutions.

In the report The Forrester Wave™: Real-Time Interaction Management, Q2 2017 (1), Forrester evaluated Pega among 12 vendors that were scored against 32 separate criteria. Pega received the highest scores possible in the vision, supporting services, solution packaging and delivery, and commercial model criteria and among the highest in the integration criteria.

Forrester notes in the report: “Pega’s value lies in consistent decision making across business roles, and we spoke with customer references who are using it to fuel cross-functional RTIM within marketing, sales, and service for tens to hundreds of millions of customer records.”

The report earlier states: “The Pega Customer Decision Hub builds on Pegasystems’ traditional decision management capabilities for offline channels to enable personalized email, mobile, social media, web, and eCommerce interactions. It further extends its next-best-action analytics via integrations with adtech platforms and directly with advertising channels.”

In addition, Forrester writes that “Pegasystems aligns across business functions,” and notes, “One reference praised its ‘unified approach versus a bunch of things stitched together.’”
