Pegasystems Positioned as a Leader in Prominent Analyst Firm's 2010 Magic Quadrant for Business Process Management Suites

Recognition Based Upon Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2010) -  Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leader in business process management (BPM) and a leading provider of customer relationship management (CRM) solutions, today announced that it has been positioned as a leader in the "Magic Quadrant for Business Process Management Suites," issued by Gartner, a leading independent technology research firm. Pegasystems was identified among the leaders in an evaluation of 25 vendors included in the report.

Gartner's Magic Quadrant notes that, "A trend we first observed in 2008 has continued into 2010: more organizations are adopting BPM as a discipline and scaling up their efforts to establish BPM as an enterprise program -- not just apply its methods and technologies to one-off projects. Thus, a market-leading BPMS must support BPM throughout the business process improvement life cycle."1

Pegasystems' Business Process Management Suite, SmartBPM®, focuses on business role empowerment and unified object architecture that bring together all aspects of a solution, including business rules, processes, analytics, user interface, industry domain knowledge and advanced customer service use cases such as CRM and case management. SmartBPM also delivers intuitive visualizations, self-optimization of models, and social networking capabilities that help business people rapidly deploy and update solutions in response to changing circumstances as part of rapid, but enterprise-wide, business transformation programs.
