Pegasystems announced the launch of version 8.7 of its Pega Infinity software package, which features updates in low-code, automation, artificial intelligence and cloud architecture.
“New intelligent, low-code upgrades to Pega’s core software suite help brands innovate faster and improve experiences for employees and customers,” Don Schuerman, chief technology officer at Pega, told CMSWire.
AI Capabilities Enhance Automation, Development
This 8.7 version allows enterprises to develop more quickly and at a larger scale, according to Schuerman. New artificial intelligence capabilities assist firms in identifying inefficiencies in their work processes and learning from previous data in order to automate labor. The update caters to professional developers and citizen developers.
“Service agents benefit from improved job experiences to provide optimal customer service," Schuerman said. "Overall, all employees are able to do their jobs better and more effectively, and customers in turn get the best, most innovative brand experiences, getting what they need, where and when they need it."
The updated software suite is available now.
