Pegasystems (Pega), the low-code platform provider, has unveiled new enhancements to Pega Partners, its partner program.

The enhancements were announced during this week’s PegaWorld iNspire user conference. Pega Partners qualifies partners to help clients accelerate their digital transformation initiatives. The updates to the program will provide clients with greater choice of partner capabilities in how they extend, expand and evolve their Pega platform investments.

With Pega Partners, clients can identify partners with skills and capabilities that will allow them to achieve their required outcomes.

Here’s our most recent list of important channel-program changes you should know.


Pega’s Judy Buchholz

“Today’s businesses are facing a period of rapid change,” said Judy Buchholz, Pega’s senior vice president of global partner ecosystem. “As complex forces drive disruption and make success harder to achieve, it is an extremely important time to be able to find the right partner, with the relevant skills, experience and expertise to help them accelerate their own transformation to an autonomous enterprise quickly and successfully. These enhancements will help Pega partners to differentiate themselves in a crowded and complex marketplace, and allow them to thrive in their specialist areas that set them apart from more generic service providers.”

Pega Partners Enhancements

Pega has streamlined its program to provide a “best-in-class” approach to supporting partner investments in skills development and capabilities that drive delivery excellence in client outcomes.

The existing partner specializations program will be expanded to guide clients in Pega’s focus industries so they can identify the right partner for their needs. This includes support for the financial services, insurance, communications, and media industries, as well as a new combined health care and life sciences specialization. In addition, process mining will be available as a new Pega specialization.

The company also updated its Pega Marketplace with new offerings, bringing the total to over 200 accelerators and connectors that have been verified by Pega. In addition, new expanded offering overviews and feature sets aim to improve the user experience, with a new structure, and content Pega designed to provide clients with a better understanding of available options.
