We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The rules management application is the best feature because BAs or even, perhaps, a businessperson, can directly create rules, change rules, and deploy them to production directly."
"The most valuable feature is the IDE."
"The visualization of the business process and the collaboration aspects of the solution are its most valuable features."
"The new PEGA underwriting platform replaced the former underwriting system and helped to integrate other legacy systems and functionalities in one application. It also helped to save licence costs for other legacy systems."
"Offers a unique environment where its entire architecture is very unified"
"The most valuable feature is the ease of deployment."
"I would like to see more help on the internet and more training over the internet. They only have a few blogs there, so that should be increased."
"More online support such as a knowledge base should be available."
"The solution needs to invest more in its technology. For public and private clouds, for example, the development environment is slow. Saving events should take one to two seconds, max, and because you are making changes often, the slowness cuts down on productivity because we have to wait for things to save before continuing."
"PEGA claims that they provide a LOW-CODE-PLATFORM which is easy to use - even for "citizen developers" (i.e. business employees). If you really want to use all the features out of this platform, you definitely need a lot of experience and a lot of training."
"Customers expect more out-of-box solutions to be readily available"
"We would like to have a better ability to customize PegaRULES."
"The biggest disadvantage of Blaze Advisor is the initial cost... The price could be reduced to increase profit margins and the number of clients."
