Pega Web Mashup delivers your application across channels

Updated on August 9, 2017

In a multichannel environment where users can interact with your application on a desktop computer or on a mobile device, Pega® Web Mashup allows you to embed Pega Platform directly in your existing website or mobile app. You can take advantage of the Pega Platform case management, decisioning, data, and integration capabilities along with a responsive user interface without having to recode the application for each channel. Changes made to the application are reflected everywhere.

A mashup is a site or application that is made from multiple content sources. For example, you can use mashups to embed videos, maps, tweets, and advertisements through a host site. In much the same way, Pega Web Mashup delivers your Pega Platform application within your host site. The application user sees the content of the harness, displayed within a frame on the host site with branding consistent with the host site.

Traditional service-based or API-based architectures require coding the application into each channel, which means that modifications must be made in each channel, creating redundant work. By embedding the application within the page, when the application is updated, changes made to the Pega Platform application are instantly available to users without your having to recode for the delivery channel.
