Supporting Quotes:

David Vidoni, Director of Product Management at Pegasystems:

"Our new Project Management Framework provides effective tools to manage and monitor projects in
real-time. Clients are looking for solutions that match up to the ways in which they work, and our new
framework delivers such capabilities while enabling them to manage all aspects of a project, from its
inception through deployment."

Stephen Zisk, BPM Product Marketing Manager at Pegasystems:

"The Project Management Framework will provide Pegasystems' customers with a better way to manage
SmartBPM and other agile projects for quick turnaround and a higher demonstrated return on investment. We

have seen a large number of organizations gravitate towards the Scrum methodology, and as a result we have
added support for how clients are working with our solutions."

David Norton, Research Director at Gartner:

"Agile and iterative principles are no longer the reserve of application development. Principles of
collaboration, short cycles, engaged business, and empowered teams are just as applicable to BPM as they are
to cutting code. The next generation of agile methods will have greater emphases on abstraction for process
orchestration and services assembly at an enterprise level."
