Data management and integration


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Pega Platform includes powerful and flexible facilities for defining data structures and managing data. You can define individual fields, arrays and repeating groups, multilevel structures, and a variety of other data structures. To support the exchange of data with other systems, your application can convert a Pega Platform data structure into a fixed record layout, an XML document, a message, or a relational database row.

Modern enterprise applications and their data sources are rarely contained on the same system. Integration protocols and interoperability standards federate the data traditionally locked away in legacy systems of record, allowing you to design applications that link multiple physically distributed resources. Pega Platform provides a comprehensive range of data and integration capabilities that simplify connecting your application to these distributed resources to enable easy, flexible, and real-time access to the rich data that they store.

Integration is a broad subject that applies to many aspects of Pega Platform. Pega Platform natively supports a range of integration standards and communication protocols, allowing you to focus on the business requirements of your application rather than on connectivity issues. For more information, see the following articles. For integration on Pega Cloud, see Integrating Pega applications in Pega Cloud with external systems.
