Pegasystems says Virtusa Corporation – a Pegasystems services partner – has purchased PegaRULES Process Commander to expand its BPM offering. Virtusa will evaluate the platform to build internal applications to support its global infrastructure.
“Virtusa is excited about expanding its relationship with Pegasystems,” says John Gillis, executive vice president of Virtusa. “We’ve been partnering with Pegasystems’s core engineering team for over two years in multiple ways to increase the efficiencies of their software development efforts. We have worked closely with them to accelerate the design and development process of PegaRULES Process Commander. In addition, as part of our relationship with Pegasystems, we have built vertical applications and have implemented client-specific solutions utilising Process Commander. Finally, we have collaborated with Pega to migrate industry-specific solutions for financial services organisations and call centres from earlier Pega platforms to state-of-the-art Process Commander. As we engaged with Pegasystems on building client-specific solutions, we were amazed to see how quickly our combined teams could generate a fully functional solution for the clients,” continued Gillis. “Investing in Process Commander at that point made a lot of sense, given our combined value proposition to help our clients cut costs and generate more revenue.
“Virtusa has been a strategic partner for over two years and has contributed significantly by bringing increased development efficiencies to our initiatives,” says Samir Gulati, vice president of global marketing and alliances for Pegasystems. “Virtusa is a thought leader in the IT outsourcing industry. We’ve been consistently impressed with their ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking, domain knowledge and technology expertise. We look forward to working with them to help our customers utilise smart BPM solutions.”
