Pegasystems Joins Eclipse Foundation
Pegasystems Inc. the leading provider of smart business process management (BPM) software, today announced its membership in the Eclipse Foundation, a community committed to the implementation of a universal development platform. Pegasystems has demonstrated its flagship PegaRULES Process Commander BPM product integrated with the Eclipse framework.

Pegasystems' J2EE SmartBPM Suite offers a rich environment for developing composite Services Oriented Business Applications that leverage components of Pegasystems' PegaRULES Process Commander. IT and business process owners collaborate using PegaRULES Process Commander capabilities, eliminating a common cause of gaps between management goals and execution. Pegasystems' Eclipse plug-ins will empower developers to leverage rules-driven BPM to align their implementations with changes contributed by business users.

PegaRULES Process Commander's service centric architecture empowers the Java developer to deploy all capabilities through both web services and an embedded Java deployment model. Now Eclipse developers can more quickly and easily develop advanced event-driven service oriented solutions using Pegasystems proven rules-based BPM components. This permits integrated execution, testing and diagnosis with new and existing Java applications while simultaneously allowing the deployment of the same functionality in the Web Services and Batch environments.

"The BPM market continues to evolve," said Jim Sinur, Vice President and Distinguished Analyst at Gartner Research. "Companies and vendors are increasingly evaluating how the adoption of industry standards can contribute to the effectiveness of business process management."

As a strong advocate for open systems, platform independence and customer choice, Pegasystems will continue to support tools and standards such as Eclipse that will help bring the benefits of smart BPM to the developer community.

"Pegasystems' expertise in helping businesses manage change and continuous improvement is a valuable asset for the Eclipse community," said Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation. "We look forward to their continued involvement and advocacy of the Eclipse platform."
