Curriculum and exams to enable partners, customers on PegaRULES Process Commander

Cambridge, MA — October 6, 2004 — Pegasystems Inc. today announced a new training curriculum for PegaRULES Process Commander (PRPC) and the launch of the Pegasystems Certified Professional Program, designed to test and certify PRPC-trained system architects.

The new training curriculum comprises a set of role-based, instructor-led training courses on the company's business process management (BPM) product platform, including courses designed for process architects, system architects and system administrators.

Depending on an individual's role within a PRPC project team, they may select anywhere from two days to two weeks of interactive training. Pegasystems said its most popular track currently is "System Architect," which comprises 10 days of training. It starts with an introduction to PRPC in the first week, when students not only learn the product's capabilities and features, but are also guided through the complete development process and build their first PRPC application; the second week is an intensive immersion program that challenges students to design a solution to a real-world business problem.

Once individuals are trained, Pegasystems' new Certified Professional Program tests them on their product expertise. The first exam, available this month, is "Certified PRPC System Architect." It tests system architects and developers in such areas as structural application design, user interfaces, process flow and rule types. Certified PRPC System Architect is the first level of certification for the BPM platform; the program will expand over time to include additional exams certifying individuals at more advanced levels.

"As a member of the Pegasystems Alliance Program, our consultants are held to a high standard of expertise and quality service," said Vinay Kumar Mummigatti, general manager of the BPM and BRE practice at Satyam, an IT services and consulting company. "The new certification program will help us to ensure that we're providing our mutual customers with the same quality they would expect to receive from Pegasystems' own product experts to guide their project implementations."
