Pegasystems introduces low-code capabilities and DX at scale

Pegasystems has announced new low-code capabilities in Pega Platform that enable both professional and citizen developers to design modern user interfaces (UI) for their apps. By combining enhanced front-end design features with back-end processing abilities, Pega helps empower enterprise users to create more complete digital experiences from a single low-code platform.

While business users have started building apps themselves with low code, they still need professional designers and front-end developers to finish them with sleek user interfaces. Low code can be used to model the back-end processes that drive how apps work. But the resulting front-end interfaces, while adequate, can fall short of rendering the intuitive experiences that end users expect. Organisations need low code with both back-end and front-end design capabilities so anyone can create differentiated apps with modern user experiences (UX) for customers and employees.

Available by the end of this quarter, the new Pega Platform capabilities combine Pega’s app-authoring capabilities with UX best practices to deliver a complete low-code app design and development solution. With a new UI architecture, enhanced design capabilities and open APIs, users can configure and design their app in the same low-code platform.

Built-in industry standards also help enable front-end developers to integrate new UXs into their existing front ends, resulting in fast and efficient interfaces that deliver the business outcomes needed for enterprises to succeed.

The new capabilities provide benefits for businesspeople and professional developers looking to build exceptional applications.

The new React-based version of the Pega Cosmos Design System enables Pega-built applications to be performed up to three times faster. With a lightweight ‘single-page application’ approach, Pega has reduced the payload by 75%, meaning less code transferred back and forth when interacting with the app. New design templates also help enterprises create more efficient app interfaces. This helps reduce end-user errors, mouse movements and fatigue while improving task completion rates — resulting in more productive employees.

The new capabilities include easier-to-use low-code design capabilities that take the guesswork out of UI design by making it easy for enterprise users to create elegant app interfaces. This approach provides a range of reusable design templates in App Studio based on best practices. This helps business users focus on modelling and configuring the application while the optimal design layout is intuitively rendered in parallel as they build. The interface branding elements are also customisable, helping users to automatically set their brand guidelines across the entire app.

Pega has also implemented context-aware APIs that dynamically update as processes change. Unlike traditional static APIs, enhanced Pega Digital Experience (DX) APIs help automatically adjust connected front-end interfaces when changes are made to the core back-end process — all without rewriting any code.

The new Pega Platform design and development features will be available by the end of Q2 2021 as part of the Pega Infinity 8.6 product release.
