Pegasystems | July 28, 2022
Pegasystems Inc., the low-code platform provider that builds agility into the world's leading organizations, today announced Pega Launchpad™ – a new cloud-based, low-code application development platform that will empower anyone to quickly build and launch B2B Software as a Service (SaaS) applications for commercialization. Pega Launchpad combines enterprise-grade workflow automation capabilities with features that make it easy for software providers to develop and scale new B2B SaaS applications.
Increasingly, companies with deep business knowledge are also becoming technology providers wanting to rapidly deliver subscription B2B software applications. But in today's highly competitive SaaS landscape, engineering talent is scarce, designing scalable applications is complex, buyer expectations are high, and speed is critical. Pega Launchpad is purpose-built to address these unique challenges with a complete application development platform that will offer:
Visual low-code development for creating powerful solutions: With the ability to help quickly capture workflows, application providers can go from a new idea to recurring revenue with powerful apps they can sell to subscribers.
Controllable support for subscriber customizations: Application providers will be able to define and control the configuration options their customers can use to personalize their new subscription.
Full visibility and control across apps, subscribers, and users: An easy-to-use administration portal helps providers monitor and manage their applications, subscribers, and users from a central dashboard.
Enterprise-grade applications architected for agility: New applications can be built by reusing existing software, helping developers to easily create new solutions to meet new market opportunities while addressing changing customer needs without needing to rewrite apps from scratch.
A scalable, secure, multi-tenant cloud-native platform: Pega manages the cloud that runs Pega Launchpad and the applications built on it – from infrastructure and provisioning to scaling and performance – so providers can focus on their subscribers.
Based on decades of experience delivering a low-code platform for AI-powered decisioning and workflow automation, Pega Launchpad is the latest deliverable of Project fnx – an extensive Pega architectural evolution initiative that has unlocked tremendous value for Pega's clients. These advances include modern, React-based front ends, Pega Cloud services on Google Cloud Platform, and the ability to weave business processes, case management, and workflow across systems with Pega Process Fabric.
"During our many years of providing low-code solutions, we have heard from many organizations who want to launch their own workflow-based services into the market. "Pega Launchpad will provide tools and infrastructure specifically designed to help them quickly create and deliver new solutions. This represents a compelling opportunity for application providers to create solutions while giving Pega new routes to market with an expanded third-party ecosystem."
Alan Trefler, founder and CEO, Pega

Mendix | April 21, 2022
Mendix, a Siemens business and global leader in enterprise application development, and Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, today announced that they have signed an expanded partnership agreement to empower Atos to leverage the Mendix low-code platform to drive hyper-automation and decarbonization in enterprises. This partnership with Mendix enhances the longstanding, trusted partnership between Atos and Siemens, cementing Atos’ commitment to providing world-class, low-code solutions for global businesses.
At launch, the agreement will give Atos the license to sell Mendix low-code platform in multiple regions where Atos has a joint business collaboration with Siemens, including APAC, EMEA, and the Americas. The offering will become available in more and more countries after the initial launch.
Speeding up digitalization in manufacturing, retail, public sector, telecommunications, and financial services
While enterprises continue to undergo rapid transformation as they digitalize business processes and operations, increasing economic sectors and industries are adopting IT solutions that streamline efficiency, optimize resources, and increase revenue.
Atos will leverage the Mendix low-code platform to offer the broadest range of application modernization services and to fortify its industrial expertise and capabilities. Through this partnership, Atos will enable organizations to maximize the potential of low-code applications to support new user needs for fast and modern services across the manufacturing, retail, public sector, telecommunications, and financial services industries. With the help of the Mendix low-code platform, Atos customers can now launch complex, business-oriented digital initiatives without prohibitive investment in extensive technological capabilities and expertise.
Accelerating digital decarbonization
The agreement will also support Atos’ mission to push boundaries of scientific and technological excellence to ensure that its business partners, clients, and the greater society can thrive and function sustainably in a digitally secure information environment.
The Mendix platform integrates with existing components to take a circular economy approach to software development. By enabling organizations to upgrade their services one application at a time, it reduces the need for infrastructure overhauls, effectively enabling organizations to do more with less. The Mendix platform is cloud native and allows for containerized applications. This enables organizations to deploy anywhere and scale their apps to any size without redesign.
With the Mendix low-code platform, Atos can support its customers to develop low-emissions applications and thereby contribute to lowering their carbon footprints.
According to the ‘Exponential Climate Action Roadmap’ laid out by the World Economic Forum, digital technologies could help reduce global carbon emissions by up to 15% – or one-third of the 50% reduction required by 2030 – through digital solutions in energy, manufacturing, agriculture, transportation and traffic management. Through the new agreement, Atos and Mendix will provide those industries with solutions that immediately support their needs for decarbonization.
Atos is already building industry specific solutions based on the Mendix platform to monitor, report, and track real-time energy consumption and carbon emission across 1,800 locations globally.
Using low-code to propel legacy systems into a digital-first economy
“We are pleased to build on Siemens’ long-standing relationship with Atos and create high-value services that will further support hyper-automation and decarbonization in enterprises. With a strong background in application modernization, Atos has the expertise to establish a clear roadmap to modernize legacy applications and systems. This is crucial for enterprises seeking to rebuild or replace their legacy systems. Our low-code platform and Atos’ expertise are perfectly suited to accelerating that transformation,” said Tim Srock, CEO, Mendix. “Through this partnership with Mendix, Atos will help organizations streamline processes, reducing the total cost and time required to change or improve their application development systems.”
“As we operate within today’s fast-paced digital landscape, this partnership will allow us to capitalize on the Mendix low-code platform to offer unique services that rapidly adapt and respond to our clients’ market changes and opportunities, across all the industries we serve. We are confident this extension to our existing partnership with Siemens will bolster our joint commitment to create innovative solutions for enterprises looking to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives.”
Rakesh Khanna, Head of Digital at Atos
While enterprises continue to undergo rapid transformation as they digitalize business processes and operations, increasing economic sectors and industries are seeking IT solutions to streamline efficiency, optimize resources, and increase revenue. With the help of the Mendix low-code platform, organizations can now launch complex, business-oriented digital initiatives without prohibitive investing in extensive technological capabilities and expertise.
In a digital-first world, customers want their every need anticipated, employees want better tools to do their jobs, and enterprises know that sweeping digital transformation is the key to survival and success. Mendix, a Siemens business, is quickly becoming the engine of the enterprise digital landscape. Its industry-leading low-code platform and comprehensive ecosystem integrates the most advanced technology to support solutions that boost engagement, streamline operations, and relieve IT logjams.
