"I believe that this is the only product in the market that truly supports offline capabilities in an SAP environment.""I love how they took the MIT Scratch concept and implemented it into the in-app backend. It makes the app creation so much more intuitive and easy to use."

Cons
"The way the IDE works with the chatbox and the taxonomy imports could be a little smoother.""They need to support the solution better, at this time the company does not have enough support.""Reporting is not so clear and not so great. We really struggle to get the right reporting. When we need reporting based on the content of the tickets, we are not able to get it. The MIS reporting is not great. That's one of the reasons why we are switching to ServiceNow. Its compatibility with the higher versions of Internet Explorer should be improved. It really works well in Mozilla Firefox or any other browser, but when it comes to Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer, sometimes, the layout gets disturbed. The positioning of the buttons changes, and there is some distortion in the layout. I am not sure whether it is our configuration problem or Pega's, but when it is working in Mozilla Firefox, it should also work in Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer.""Pega's technical support could be better.""There is a scarcity of resources who have worked with this solution before.""In the next release of Pega BPM, they should add more ways to do the customer interaction fields in the portals.""This is an expensive solution.""UI needs improvement."

More Pega BPM Cons →

"While we're not in a place of letting LOB analysts build apps, at some point, we may want to give them a bit more freedom - as long as we can limit their ability to harm the ERP data. I would like to see more tools pertaining to this area.""The modernizer element should convert a higher percentage of the ABAP code, moving it from approximately 75%, closer to 100%."
