Pegasystems Recent Developments
In July 2020, Pega introduced X-ray Vision – the industry’s first self-healing robotic process automation (RPA) capability to detect and fix broken bots with no human intervention. Combined with new automated bot authoring tools, Pega RPA will provide clients with faster, more durable, and easier to deploy RPA. With X-ray Vision, Pega will expand on its patented Deep Robotics approach to RPA that durably binds the bot within native application controls instead of at the surface level. The new capabilities will leverage AI algorithms to make it far easier and faster than current available solutions to create new bots and keep them running. With this ease and speed, Pega will help give organizations a viable way to significantly scale their RPA initiatives beyond the typical handfuls of bots.
In June 2020, Pega announced Pega Process Fabric, a new cloud-based software architecture designed to radically streamline how organizations drive work across distributed enterprise technologies. With minimal deployment effort, this “platform for platforms” breaks down technology silos to unify work across the enterprise and help improve user experiences for employees, customers, and partners. Available through Pega Platform, Pega Process Fabric combines the power of dynamic APIs, an open UX framework, UI components, robotic automation, and data virtualization to bridge connectivity gaps from end to end. This silo-busting software weaves together enterprise technology from different vendors into a unified “platform for platforms.” While the individual components still operate independently behind the scenes, they act as one cohesive whole to users and customers.
In May 2020, Pega introduced Ethical Bias Check, a new capability of Pega Customer Decision Hub that helps eliminate biases hidden in the artificial intelligence (AI) driving customer engagements. The feature flags possible discriminatory offers and messages generated by AI across all channels before they reach the customer. It detects unwanted discrimination by using predictive analytics to simulate the likely outcomes of a given strategy. After setting their testing thresholds, clients receive alerts when the bias risk reaches unacceptable levels – such as if the audience for a particular offer skews toward or away from specific demographics. Operations teams can then pinpoint the offending algorithm and adjust the strategy to help ensure a fair and more balanced outcome for everyone.
Also in May 2020, Pega launched Pega Customer Service Unified Messaging Edition – a new SaaS-based application that helps customer service teams respond faster and more efficiently to customer inquiries flooding in across disparate messaging channels. Deployable within days, this new solution provides a single dashboard where agents can more easily juggle requests between chat, messaging applications, social media, and SMS to deliver world-class customer service.
In April 2020, Pega announced Pega Kickstart – a new family of fixed-price services that help businesses quickly deploy Pega software to help address critical customer and employee experience problems. Through a combination of Pega tools, best practices, and a dedicated services team, Pega Kickstart provides a faster path to digital transformation with high-impact returns delivered in just weeks. Pega also launched the Crisis Response Solutions Portfolio to solve urgent challenges resulting from the COVID-19 crisis. The portfolio contains 18 rapidly deployable solutions that help businesses overcome a range of unpredictable issues they are facing during the pandemic – such as surges in customer inquiries, policy exceptions requests, new emergency regulations, and changing claims requirements. Additionally, they introduced the Small Business Lending App which helps financial institutions manage the thousands of emergency loan applications pouring in from small businesses seeking COVID-19 financial relief. Available to Pega Platform™ clients and configurable in just days, it comes with prebuilt templates reflecting new U.S. and U.K. crisis loan guidelines and can be easily customized to orchestrate crisis loan programs for other countries.
In March 2020, Pega launched a free app to help its clients track the spread of COVID-19 among employees and maintain business continuity in the face of the global pandemic. Built in just days with the low-code Pega Platform, the COVID-19 Employee Safety and Business Continuity Tracker app provides business leaders with live dashboards that visualize the scope of COVID-19 exposure in their workforce and the impact it may have on operations. This data helps them make more informed decisions to keep employees safe and business moving forward. Employees self-report their COVID-19 status via a short set of risk assessment questions. Their answers feed into the status dashboards and trigger a series of automated actions that guide affected employees, their managers, and human resources with instructions on how to manage their situation.
