Business rules are the practices, processes, and procedures that define how a company does business; they are an important asset that differentiates enterprises in the marketplace. Pegasystems' patented rules technology allows companies to aggregate their diverse business practices and lets business managers rapidly implement change across the enterprise and over the Web.

Blue-chip companies in financial services, healthcare, insurance, communications, and many other industries, turn to Pegasystems to streamline business processes, to quickly and easily adapt to changing market conditions, and to realize significant ROI.

Alan Trefler, Pegasystems' Founder, Chairman, and CEO, has guided the Company's technology vision. This vision has repeatedly positioned Pegasystems on the forefront of industry trends — often well before these trends have become widely accepted in the marketplace. Mr. Trefler's early experiences teaching computers how to play chess provide the intellectual foundation for his thinking on the importance of rules and automated decisioning. 

From best-of-breed rules-based exception-processing solutions in the 1980s to enterprise rules-based customer-service solutions for call centers in the 1990s to today's rules-based Pega BPM solutions for the extended enterprise, Pegasystems empowers the aggressive business strategies of many of the world's most dynamic organizations.

    I have been working at Pegasystems as a contractor (less than an year)


    Pega is full of very smart people and rewards those who want a career not a job (if the latter is you then you won't like it here)


    Often the process of the end result hinders the efficiency but is necessary in a company that allows for individual freedom to design "the means to the ends." Also, the compensation is a bit below the leaders in the space but average in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs better training programs and overall development. It's definitely a trial by fire mentality with little guidance.
