We have a business relationship with Pega. We handle both on cloud or on-premises deployments according to the client's needs. Many financial institutions prefer on-premises, because of the data security. However, even some of the banks have opted for cloud as well. I'd advise other organizations to get a good partner and take time to compare other options and to do a roadmap. Not every product is suitable for every scenario, so it's important to do a bit of research first. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Most of our use cases are related workflow kinds of tasks like data workflow, user onboarding workflows, etc. Although the solution might be too big for our purposes, as of now we are continuing with Pega because we don't know of any such tools which have the scalability, as well as the ease of use that this solution provides. That's why we are continuing with it right now. Although I personally haven't used the solution for very long, I would rate it eight out of ten.

We're partners with Pega. I'm not sure of the exact release number, but we are using the latest version of the solution. It's a good idea to get clarity in terms of what future upgrades the solution plans to implement. Then, compare it to the competition. It will give you a good idea of what is possible and what will be possible. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten overall. It's been quite good and we've been quite satisfied with it.

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to make sure that they understand it. For example, we are certified in the usage of Pega BPM. It's a very complete product but it is not a simple one. They need to use the right, structured approach to implement it properly. Pega is not a product for a client with small needs. If anything, when setting up Pega you should think bigger and put things in place for what will be needed to lead the team in the right direction in the future. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would definitely let people know about it. Let me give you a scenario. Let's say there is a banking system. Generally, people come to the bank, fill out the form, and submit it. Then a record will be created in the system. So what happens by using the Pega BPM is that we can clearly identify the flow - how you do it by using the different user input tasks. This is appealing to the user, to the customers, to everyone. Definitely I would like to get a return on that and let them know that if they use this BPM tool, more than any other technology tool, it has the most complete set of tools for the system. On a scale of one to ten, I'd rate it an eight. This is because it is easier to use than any other product and it is more secure. All of our software was developed in Java and as we know Java is a secure language. There are many more features. It is easy to use, easy to understand, easy to implement and easy to enhance and we can do it as a Cloud. Also, it is very user-friendly. Nowadays, it's on Cloud so we can access it from anywhere. There is no location per se or any system requirement.

We use the cloud deployment model. We've been using the solution for a long time and it's been very good. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. There are some technical tools that are hard to use.

We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd rate the solution ten out of ten. It's a robust system that makes it easy to create your basic applications. It is a premium platform, however, so it is costly.

I would place Pega BPM at around an 8.5 out of 10 because of the cloud and RPA issues. However, Pega is an excellent choice. It is efficient and does what it is supposed to do. It is extremely important to choose the right product and implementation partner. What the customer should be looking for in terms of an implementation partner is the quality of resources that they have, it is not the quantity. The Pega resources are classified into solution updates, frequent solution updates and new solution updates. An implementation partner needs to have a core team that brings the solution together. The emphasis is on the people who take the implementation forward. It is very important to see if the implementation partner has the right interface and the right experience. Organizations themselves need to look at developing a certain amount of internal Pega support. This means choosing a partner or provider willing and able to impart their skills and knowledge. The client has a lot of control on their side. Its good to be able to rely on a strong business implementation partner.

My main advice is to look over the solutions for each customer base to understand the main features in Pega and what should be done or shouldn't be done. In my experience, I've met some people who say that Pega is quite expensive and hadn't even the slightest idea of how to use it and these features. My main advice is just to get acquainted with Pega as a solution. I will give it a score of eight out of ten. It's quite good.

This product is pretty easy to work with. Sometimes you need experts, and it can be difficult to find Pega experts. Otherwise, it's a good tool to work with. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
