Tell us a bit about your Pega journey - What was your motivation to pursue CLSA certification?
I got introduced to Pega in 2011 through a newspaper advertisement published for recruitment by Pegasystems India. I applied and luckily was offered the job after multiple rounds of interviews. I only had a little over a year of experience back then so I consider myself lucky to have been associated with Pega from the initial years of my career.
It was always my dream to clear the ultimate Pega certification and become a Lead System Architect. Having worked in product development and in application development, I quickly understood that becoming a CLSA is crucial in order to take one’s career to the next level in Pega.
What were the most significant obstacles that you faced on your path to become CLSA certified? How were you able to overcome those obstacles?
The most significant obstacle I faced in my CLSA journey was to be able to dedicate the time and energy necessary for the test preparation. I also moved across the world after completing my LSA Readiness exam and had to delay my Architecture exam as a result. After settling into my new life, I picked up the LSA certification process again and started my preparation by going through Pega Academy courses, practicing self-learning exercises and engaging with current LSA’s on Pega Community. Retired exam questions also helped a lot in my preparation for the App Build.

What message or advice would you give to anyone who is considering a career as a Pega CLSA?
The only advice I would give is that there is always something to learn and explore in Pega. Keep yourself up-to-date about new product features and concepts by using Pega Academy, Pega Community and most importantly, building your own prototypes.
