Pegasystems commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a TEI study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying the Pega 7 Platform.
While business process management software has many technical dimensions along which comparisons can be drawn, business decision-makers would do well to focus on these core business criteria when judging a BPM suite:
- Empowering business users. For a BPM platform to deliver true agility, it must put business users squarely in the driver’s seat, so that shifting business objectives can be quickly built into process execution. Is the BPM suite merely an IT integration tool, or does it really enable business users to drive business processes?
- Flexibility for the real world. Over time, how well will the BPM suite support business process management services that scale across your enterprise while also accommodating real-world differences among regions, product lines, sales channels, and customers?
- Tangible benefits, fast. In today’s economic environment, technology investments must return dividends sooner rather than later. Is the BPM suite designed to quickly deliver tangible business benefits?
