Pega Cloud subscription documentation

Updated on February 13, 2023

This content applies only to Pega Cloud environments

Pega Cloud provides a fully-managed Cloud Service platform running Pega software in an as-a-service model.  Pega Cloud contains several additional cloud services listed below that enhance Pega Intelligent Automation, 1:1 Customer Engagement, Customer Service, Sales Automation, and Client Onboarding. 

Pega Cloud is managed by Pega, with global and regional support models for 24 x 7 operations, security, and monitoring to help support our clients’ enterprise applications.  Clients forgo the complexities of operating and managing a Pega ecosystem in favor of letting Pega manage it for them.  Pega Cloud allows Pega clients to get started quickly (within days of contract signature) and to realize the value of Pega solutions more rapidly. 

Additional Cloud Services

Additional services available for use with Pega Cloud include:

Pega Workforce Intelligence

Pega Workforce Intelligence (WFI) allows clients to determine where employees are losing time following inefficient processes when doing work.  Clients deploy Pega’s workforce intelligence bots on the desktop. These AI-powered discovery bots work around the clock, collecting information so clients can get a view of the day in the life of their employees. Desktop information reveals application usage, processes performed, and more, helping managers to understand the obstacles and distractions that undermine productivity.

Pega Digital Messaging

The Digital Messaging service enables Pega Customer Service Digital Customer Engagement Edition clients to connect their cloud or on-premises Customer Service application to digital channels like Web Messaging (Chat), Facebook, Twitter, SMS and WhatsApp.  Clients can implement one or more digital channels to support their customer engagement programs, and can configure the channels to provide automated assistance and transfer to a live agent.

Pega Co-Browse

Pega Co-Browse provides a live collaboration tool that allows clients' customer service agents to be able to see what the clients' customer is seeing.  In Co-Browse, clients can mask sensitive customer data; agents have annotation tools to aid their customers in completing their tasks.

Legacy Web Chat (formerly Pega Chat)

Legacy Web Chat provides a chat channel for Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) to interact with clients' customers.   Clients can implement several self-service options in chatbots, including service cases, proactive chat, and Pega Knowledge articles. Clients' customers can receive automated assistance and transfer to a live agent for CSR assistance.

Pega Voice AI

Pega Voice AI helps clients' customers, employees and developers reduce complexity, engage more effectively, and drive positive outcomes.  Voice AI uses natural language processing in tandem with Pega's intelligent automation capabilities to detect intent, surface relevant knowledge, and automate actionable work in real-time.

Pega Deployment Manager (v6)

Deployment Manager is the standard way to test and deploy Pega applications. It exposes all capabilities of the Pega Platform necessary to automate a client’s DevOps workflows, including branch merging, application packaging, applying quality gates, and promoting an application to different environments. Deployment Manager leverages market-leading case management technology to build and run continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines with a familiar, model-driven experience.

Pega Predictive Diagnostic Cloud

Pega Predictive Diagnostic Cloud (PDC) is an intelligent agent that predicts, prioritizes, and notifies administrators about the health of a client’s Pega applications. It leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to provide operations teams a prioritized list of action plans that provide performance and stability.
