Reeve added that the platform will "build scale into the organisation so that it can continue to grow without having to scale resources linearly."
Reeve said he was a Pegasystems customer in a previous job and was keen to include them in the vendor selection process at Study Group. He declined to provide names of alternative vendors that were considered, but said that Pegasystems provided the best speed to market and showed a high level of dedication to achieving Study Group's goals.
Choosing a cloud BPM platform has allowed Study Group to get the project up and running quickly, he said.
"From when we confirmed the selection to actually starting the development process, there was no buying servers, putting them in racks and architecting them together. It was very clearly just turn it on, connect the right level of security and VPNs together, and then we were up and running."
"It also gave us the flexibility to deploy the solution wherever we felt was best in the world to deploy it," he said. "We were able to choose where we were going to put that solution without having to worry about acquiring data centre space or anything like that in those particular locations."
