Pegasystems' Smart BPM™ Suite Named a KMWorld 2005 ''Trend-Setting Product''

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 2, 2005 — Pegasystems Inc. (Nasdaq: PEGA), the leading provider of smart business process management (BPM) software, today announced that its SmartBPM suite has been named a "Trend-Setting Product" for 2005 by KMWorld magazine.

KMWorld editorial colleagues, knowledge-management product users, and industry analysts worked together on a panel to choose 2005's official "Trend Setters." The panel evaluated more than 200 vendors whose combined offerings total over 1,200 differing products. The four main factors considered during evaluation were usability, flexibility, adoption rate, and total cost of ownership. KMWorld panelists also look to recognized vendors with a vision toward the future.

"Pegasystems is very pleased to accept the formal recognition of our SmartBPM Suite as a trend setter in KMWorld magazine," said Jay Sherry, VP Marketing and Solution Development for Pegasystems. "The SmartBPM Suite's 'Build for Change' technology benefits from Pegasystems' more than 20 years of experience delivering business-agility solutions to some of the most demanding industries."

This award demonstrates Pegasystems' continued recognition in both the media and analyst communities, having recently been named to Software Magazine's "Software 500" and Gartner's "Business Rule Engines Magic Quadrant" as a "Leader" earlier this year.
