Improve productivity by using role-based workspaces

A workspace, or studio, is an environment that provides specific tools and features. By using different workspaces to develop and manage your application, you can help team members focus on the tasks that align with their expertise.

For example, front-end developers can design interface channels in one workspace, while system administrators can switch between workspaces as they configure advanced functionality and monitor run-time results.

The following workspaces are supported:

App Studio

Formerly Pega Express, this workspace provides core features for application development, such as case design, data management, and the user experience. Typical users include application developers, front-end developers, data engineers, and business analysts. You can use App Studio to get your applications up and running quickly.

The following figure illustrates some features, such as channels and interfaces, that are available in App Studio.

You can use Dev Studio to fully customize your application and build reusable components for your team to configure in App Studio.

The following figure illustrates some features, such as application guides, that are exclusive to Dev Studio.
