 Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company empowering customer engagement at the world’s leading enterprises, today extended its cloud choice commitment by giving clients even more freedom to deploy Pega solutions on their preferred cloud provider with no vendor lock-in. To support this initiative, Pega has teamed up with Pivotal®, the company accelerating enterprise digital transformation, to deliver Pegasoftware on Pivotal Cloud Foundry®. This marks the first in a series of planned partnerships with leading cloud providers that will bring Pega clients unmatched choice, flexibility, and support to configure their cloud environment to best suit their needs.

While business needs change rapidly and unpredictably, many software vendors restrict their customers to a single cloud deployment option that forces vendor lock-in. By collaborating with Pivotal, Pega offers a more flexible approach with a supported alternative to Pega® Cloud – Pega’s fully managed cloud platform optimized for Pega software. Pega clients can run Pega software on their cloud of choice, move seamlessly between cloud infrastructures as their business needs and drivers change, and get optimal value out of their cloud investment.

Pivotal works with more than a third of the Fortune 100 and a rapidly growing portion of the Fortune 2000 due to Pivotal Cloud Foundry’s ability to deploy and operate cloud-native and legacy applications on any public cloud or on-premise. This collaboration comes in response to increasing demand from Pega and Pivotal customers to provide a joint solution that combines the power of these industry-leading platforms.

Pega will provide clients with a Pivotal tile enabling them to quickly and easily deploy Pega solutions on Pivotal Cloud Foundry. This Pivotal deployment package – Pega for Pivotal Cloud Foundry – will be free for licensed Pega customers and available for download on the Pega Exchange marketplace starting in early June.

With cloud choice, Pega customers are able to run Pega Platform and Pega customer engagement applications in supported cloud environments, including Pivotal Cloud Foundry, with access to 24/7 Pega customer support. Pega also continues to support configurations in public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.

Quotes & Commentary:

“For many software providers, the only cloud path they typically offer customers is their own – leading to vendor lock-in at a time when agility is paramount,” said Tim Beachus, vice president, cloud business and strategy, Pegasystems. “Pega enables its clients to blaze their own trail. We’ve built Pega Cloud to be the optimal environment to run our software, but as our clients’ needs evolve, they enjoy the freedom to deploy on platforms like Pivotal Cloud Foundry to meet their business goals.”

“Our work with Pega will bring two of the most advanced technology platforms together to enable tremendous operational efficiency for some of the most important businesses in the world,” said Joshua McKenty, ‎vice president, global ecosystem engineering, Pivotal.
