Pega Express overview

The Pega Express™ delivery approach is recommended for all Pega implementations. Pega Express is based on years of experience delivering Pega applications, and on a framework of delivery values and best practices. The Pega Express delivery approach combines industry-standard best practices, for example, Scrum, with best practices that are specific to Pega, such as App Studio's low-code authoring experience.
