Hi all,

I came across some jobs asking for Pega Experience today while applying. Does anybody know what Pega Experience/Knowledge mean?

Thanks.

Pega Systems. It's sort of a rule engine product.

Wow, they've changed business model a lot since I worked for them for 6 weeks in 1992. Back then they just did some dungeon-level banking software.

What's a rule engine product? It's related to performance right? Does it have any relationship with DMS(Dynamic Monitoring Service)?

Thanks.

Rules Engine is used for externalizing the business rules (especially ones that are complex and constantly changing). For example, if you build a universal accounting product in Java, it is better to externalize your business rules relating to tax and accounting rules as it would vary from country to country. For example, GST or VAT will vary. The business will set up these values via a business rules engine product as a set of rules and values, and the main application written in Java or what ever will pick up these rules.
