Pegasystems Scoops "Yphise AWARD" for Agile Business Application Platform

PARIS –  7th January 2009 – Yphise, an independent research company, has named Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leader in Business Process Management (BPM) software, as the recipient of the “Yphise AWARD”, which certifies that Pegasystems SmartBPM® Suite is the best-ranked solution in comparison with its competitors for ABAP (Agile Business Application Platforms).  Yphise states that this award demonstrates that the solution has the strengths required by large corporations and represents a sound investment.

Laetitia Bardoul, senior consultant, Yphise confirms, “We assessed the SmartBPM Suite in four key areas:  Implementing agile business applications (ABAs) quickly; facilitating the changes in ABAs; keeping aligned on customer needs; and finally, ensuring the efficiency in operations of ABAs.  Pegasystems stands out in every area.”

Agile business application platforms provide business analyst and business process managers with a flexible and agile platform for design and build, plus they significantly reduce the need for technical skills in order to implement well-focused business-oriented applications.  Yphise research additionally shows that ABA platforms are seen as a key investment that enables companies to behave in a highly responsive manner to demanding agility and compliance issues, which in turn deliver vastly improved productivity and are viewed as a key support for business activity.

Laurent Chailley, country sales manager for France, Pegasystems, says, “This accreditation from Yphise reinforces that the Pegasystems SmartBPM Suite has truly matured into a business agility platform, far beyond just BPM, and much more than simply middleware.  Our solutions are all about empowering the business user to be able to align their business to change and be more agile, especially in today’s challenging market conditions.”

Bardoul concludes, “Pegasystems’ SmartBPM Suite strongly relies on a rule management system as a foundation.  This is an original positioning in the marketplace.  Pegasystems’ SmartBPM Suite has the strengths required by large companies and represents a sound investment for agile business applications.”
