Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It reduces operating costs because you are taking some of this work out of the high cost IT people, freeing them up to work on new initiatives and getting them out of maintenance mode. Now, the business people are the ones making business decisions on what needs to change. They are hands on making these changes.""It has benefited our organization by having less coding changes. Thus, we save time and don't have to hire as many people.""So far, the usability is great. It's also easy to set up.""The most valuable feature is the deployment part because it is very easy to deploy. Even a businessperson or someone from a non-technical background can easily deploy it and the rules will work."

"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."

Cons
"There is some promise of how decisions could take advantage of machine learning and artificial intelligence. That has been slow to develop. It is still not clear where the market will take it, but that is something that I am looking forward to down the road.""I would like to have integration of the user interfaces, and they are putting them together in the next version of the solution.""It hasn't totally helped our decision-making.""The errors I get from time to time are not easy to debug or easy to understand. They are very vague because if a XOM file is missing or there is a deserialization problem, on the client's side I only get a 500 Internal Server Error. To learn where the problem is, I have to go on the Rule Execution Server and test it myself. The deserialization issue is very vague. The error messages should be more straightforward and easy to understand."

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have a client who had a three-month ROI on this tool, just in additional sales, from sort of the next best action of what product that they should offer to their clients. ROI can be very quick with this product.""We made a lifetime purchase. We purchased it by number of PVUs for our stage and product environments.""It was not a large cost. It was a one-time cost."
