“Our subscription revenue grew 27% year over year in the first nine months of 2020, reflecting the impact of passing the midpoint of our cloud transition,” Ken Stillwell, CFO, Pegasystems said in a statement.

Stillwell added that Pegasystems has over $450 million of cash and investments on the balance sheet, plus the addition of strong enterprise clients would put them in a position to capture a bigger share of the $50 billion market for digital transformation solutions today.
