Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company empowering digital transformation at the world’s leading enterprises, today announced Forrester Research has named Pega a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Real-Time Interaction Management (RTIM) report, Q4 2020 (1). Pega received top scores in two of the three high-level categories – current offering and strategy – as well as the highest score possible in 25 of 30 criteria.
Forrester evaluated the 13 most significant RTIM providers for the report. Among the top-level criteria, Pega received the highest possible score in customer recognition, decision arbitration, measurement and optimization, contextual understanding, product vision, innovation roadmap, market approach, supporting products and services, partner ecosystem, commercial model, and revenue.
“Pega excels in nearly every aspect of this evaluation, distancing itself from other vendors in all but a few digital marketing criteria,” the report reads. “It raises the bar for enterprise RTIM that runs the gamut of digital self-service and human-assisted touchpoints across the entire customer lifecycle. References praised its holistic commitment to customer-focused outcomes and attributed significant business results to their Pega solutions.”
