Cons
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.

Using this solution requires a lot of experience.This solution needs to have more built-in workflows.The licensing is expensive and should be improved.The solution needs to integrate with Cloud facilities like AWS and Azure.In the next release, to make it easier to write the workflows, I would l like to see more HTML GUIs.The interface could be improved to bring greater user-friendliness and ease of use.Storage has room for improvement. It's a big problem for our solution. The interface also needs improvement, it should be simplified.As we work towards more stability on the solution, sometimes we'll try something and it breaks and it's easier to restart the service. That's the only drawback. We've experienced this with other applications as well.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.

This solution is expensive and the licensing is more attractive for Haveri.Our licensing is on a yearly basis. We pay for the license and then we pay the support every year.
