Pegasystems Presents at BPM Conference; Speaks on ''What's Ahead'' and ''Transforming to a Process-Driven Enterprise''; Vice President of BPM Technology Setrag Khoshafian Defines the Rules for BPM

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 15, 2005 — Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leading provider of smart business process management (BPM) software, presented on two panels earlier in the week at the Brainstorm Group's Business Process Management conference in Chicago.

"For efficient, agile, and successful implementation of BPM, we need to have a cohesive environment that allows you to model and execute your information models, your process models, your business rules, and your integration to back-end systems and partners," explained Setrag Khoshafian, Vice President of BPM Technology, Pegasystems. "Pegasystems' SmartBPM Suite is the leading product in the market that can support the entire lifecycle of end-to-end business-application automation and digitization."

The conference, featuring leaders in business and technology, was designed to address the most pressing issues facing BPM practitioners. Dr. Khoshafian was a featured participant on two panels. Chaired by Janelle Hill, Vice President & Research Practice Lead for BPM, META Group, the first panel was titled "BPM Thought Leaders — What's Ahead?" and explored the concept of the adaptive enterprise and the steps necessary to get there. The second panel, "Transforming to a Process-Driven Enterprise," moderated by Tom Dwyer, Analyst Editorial Director, Yankee Group,, included discussion of better synergy between business requirements and information technology solutions, along with faster response to change.

Pegasystems knows that in business, the only true certainty is the velocity of change, which forces an ever-increasing execution gap between objectives and operations. Pegasystems' easy-to-build, easy-to-change SmartBPM Suite combines a highly graphical and rapid solution-development environment and execution and management dashboard, all in one.
