The interface is quite simple and easy to use, even for beginners.The solution's most valuable feature is its quick setup. Nowhere else you can create a good-looking application this quick. It's a fairly robust system.Powerful, full-featured business process management with excellent supportWhile Pega technical support is okay, it also depends on the issues you need help with and who your contact is with Pega.The most valuable features are case management and integration services.It cuts down the time taken for coding. Earlier it used take for us four hours to do a particular code. Now this can be done in less than 30 minutes. That's the kind of productivity gains you can get.The user interface and the ease of developing the workflow for an application are valuable features.Decreased time for plane departures and landing, supported analytical insight for planning of three to six month forecasting, and helped with operational decision planning and support.

Cons
It is missing some important features that other products have.We are struggling a bit with integrations.It would be nice to have a wizard to help walk through the development process and create a backbone.There is a considerable learning curve.

Pega currently is trying to add chatbots to their systems, and it's still quite immature. This part definitely needs to be improved.The pricing model needs to be improved. Right now, it's too expensive.Lack of stronger cloud support is somewhat inconvenient for users and implementation.What should be included is some UI features and maybe some integrations. This includes documentation on how the UI works.The unit testing needs to improve, as well as the user interface.The biggest thing I have seen is when going from one version to another and upgrading to the latest version, it takes a pretty long time for an organization to go through an upgrade process. I think that's an area where they can make it a little smoother.There have been some performance scalability issues. Suppose you want to add more users. You go from, say, 800 users to 1,500 users, and sometimes that creates issues for which there is no clear explanation. To fix it you have to escalate it with customer service and sometimes the response is not up to the mark in resolving those issues.It is scalable, but it also interacts with a lot of other systems. I think they thought that the interface to other systems, legacy systems, was its strength, but when problems do occur, quickly diagnosing those problems has been a challenge.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The Community Edition comes free of charge.I believe this is a very good financial choice.

May be somewhat more expensive than other solutions initially, but should have enhanced return on investment.The licensing fees are based on the number of users.They have both on-premise and cloud licensing. If you are a small to medium company, go for the cloud option because that eliminates a lot of the setting up of your DevTest and performance environments, multiple environments, because you can buy that from Pega with the cloud option. So your setup time really goes down. If you're a large company, then you're better off putting it within your company. You have other skill resources within your company to create environments.They need to come up with licensing options. Right now they do have a cloud-based option, but the cloud prices I've seen are much more expensive compared to competing products.
