Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company empowering customer engagement at the world's leading enterprises, today announced it has been recognized as one of seven Hot Vendors in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in a new report from Aragon Research.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - September 14, 2017 - Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company empowering customer engagement at the worlds leading enterprises, today announced it has been recognized as one of seven Hot Vendors in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in a new report from Aragon Research.


Each year Aragon Research selects Hot Vendors across multiple markets that have interesting, cutting-edge products, services, or technologies. The Hot Vendors in Robotic Process Automation (RPA), 2017, (1) report analyzes the capabilities of top RPA vendors and addresses how they help organizations meet todays demand for rapid productivity and automation within the enterprise. The report also examines how RPA vendors are infusing artificial intelligence and machine learning into their automation solutions.

According to the report, "Pegas secret sauce is its platform (on-premises or in the cloud) that applies adaptable configuration of pre-built solutions. The linked RPA allows organizations to link to existing applications and replace low-level activities and tasks with bots."

This report builds on recent recognition of Pegas RPA and platform capabilities. Earlier this year, Pega was included in the "Winners Circle" in the HfS Research Blueprint Snapshot Report on Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Tool Providers (2). Pegas robotic automation and intelligence solutions enable enterprises to optimize how work gets done by automating tedious, manual tasks and uncovering hidden opportunities to change work processes to ultimately increase workforce productivity and boost the bottom line.

The report notes that RPA is particularly powerful when leveraged with process and case management - key capabilities that are core to the Pega® Platform. Enterprises can apply Pega RPA stand alone or combine with business process management (BPM) and case management to further drive continuous operational efficiency, refine workflow orchestration, and optimize work outcomes.

Pega was also recently identified as a leader in platform-related reports such as The Forrester Wave™: Digital Process Automation Software, Q3 2017 (3), Gartners Critical Capabilities for BPM-Platform-Based Case Management Frameworks (4), Gartners Magic Quadrant on BPM-Platform-Based Case Management Frameworks (5), and Gartners 2016 Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites (6).
