Before you create the baseline application, be sure that you install and test Pega Foundation for Financial Services. See the Pega Foundation for Financial Services Installation Guide on the Pega Foundation for Financial Services product page.
Use the Application Wizard to create a new application built on Pega Foundation for Financial Services. The wizard creates the application structure for you.
In some cases, an organization that consists of multiple companies or entities requires multiple applications to vary the features based on the business needs of each company or entity. If your application features are the same throughout your organization, create an implementation application only. If your application features vary for different parts of your organization, first create a framework enterprise application that contains the features that are common to all parts of the organization. Then, create an implementation application for each variation that your organization requires. When using a framework application, build the implementation applications on top of the framework application so that they inherit common rules from the framework application.
