Pegasystems Positioned in Leaders Quadrant in 2006 BPMS Magic Quadrant

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 30 — Pegasystems Inc. (Nasdaq: PEGA), today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the leaders quadrant in the 2006 Magic Quadrant for Business Process Management Suites, 2006, co-authored by Janelle Hill and Jim Sinur, and published on June 28, 2006.


According to the report, "The best BPMSs are not just a bundling of previously-standalone products; rather, they are architecturally integrated, service-oriented components. Only a few of the BPM pure-play vendors have advanced their products and strategies sufficiently to move into the Leaders quadrant."


Gartner's thorough evaluation took into account numerous features designed to evaluate the extent to which BPMS solutions enable the direct control and management of operational processes in near-real time by business managers and process owners to better meet today's business cycle time needs and enable more agile processes.


Gartner sees BPM as a fast-growing market that addresses how organizations streamline and automate their core business processes. To that end, in late 2005, Gartner defined a new market called the Business Process Management Suite (BPMS) market, which is aimed at providing a technology base for business users (with assistance from IT professionals) to create and manage dynamic business processes for business advantage.


"We are excited to be positioned in the leaders quadrant by Gartner," said Alan Trefler, CEO, Pegasystems. "PegaRULES Process Commander is a new class of BPM software for companies who want to manage, automate and optimize dynamic business processes. Our business has never been better because of the strength of our SmartBPM Suite."
