Pegasystems Announces Cloud-Enabled Business Process Management Platform as a Service (PaaS)

New Platform Delivers BPM as a Service Without the Risks of Traditional Software-as-a-Service Offerings

Pegasystems (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leader in BPM software, today launched an industry-first BPM Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering that gives enterprises the benefits of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) without the limitations, risk, or performance concerns of traditional SaaS technology. Pegasystems BPM PaaS is targeted at corporate organizations and business process outsourcers who desire to take advantage of a Software-as-a-Service model while also utilizing the power of their internal integration and infrastructure.

Pegasystems leapfrogs existing SaaS technology ensuring integration, security, visibility, and reliability that other SaaS offerings do not provide. The Pegasystems BPM Platform-as-a-Service is the only BPM PaaS solution that offers:

  • A thin client development environment and full Web-based user interaction
  • PaaS capability for end-to-end BPM development and execution, not just simple modeling
  • Multi-tenant capability to rapidly deploy and add business-specific BPM to shared enterprise processes
  • An in-house BPM SaaS capability with all of the security and integration of data center infrastructure
  • Elimination of information silos caused by externally hosted SaaS applications

We believe that there are more immediate and practical uses of cloud-enabled technologies than hosted SaaS, and using them to encourage BPM adoption and re-use within an extended enterprise makes sense, commented Daryl Plummer, Managing VP and Gartner Fellow at the industry analyst firm Gartner. Large organizations host many different communities that need their own specialized processes to evolve, and they are not likely to entrust change-sensitive mission critical functions to a commoditized SaaS offering more appropriate for the SMB market.

Business users have become increasingly intrigued by the SaaS model, but have told us they are not going to trust their mission critical processes, policies and data to an externally hosted environment, said Pegasystems Founder and CEO Alan Trefler. Our new industry-first BPM Platform-as-a-Service removes the risks that customers typically associate with SaaS solutions such as integration, security, visibility, and reliability, so they can focus on applying the benefits that BPM can provide across the enterprise.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
