Pega introduces new capabilities to speed citizen development adoption while maintaining governance

Pegasystems has announced new Pega Platform templates, training courses, and services to make it easier for citizen developers to create low-code applications faster and more effectively than ever before. By accelerating the adoption of low code across all types of business users, the company says, these tools can help reduce IT backlogs while limiting risk through effective governance. 

Current demand for professional developers exceeds talent availability, and it’s become nearly impossible for understaffed IT teams to balance coding new applications while tackling existing backlogs and maintaining legacy code, Pegasystems says, and as a result, organizations are tapping citizen developers to get work done. According to Gartner, 41% of employees outside of IT already customize or build data or technology solutions.

According to Pegasystems, its low-code factory approach empowers citizen developers by combining a no-code development environment with technology-supported governance that automates the enforcement of best practices, while providing IT leaders the tools to foster innovation while ensuring security, scalability, and maintainability.  To further support citizen development, Pega introduced the following new features, coursework, and services:  

“Citizen development is more than giving business users a low-code platform and letting them run with it—it requires a holistic approach that focuses on technology and the people and processes needed to create applications,” said Don Schuerman, CTO, Pega. “Organizations need the technology, best practices, and governance to feel confident and secure in empowering their business users while easing the burden on pro developers. These new Pega offerings help create harmony between business and IT while enabling organizations to go to market faster and innovate like never before.”
