Software AG Announces Next Step in Cloud Strategy - Software AG Cloud Ready

By Software AG

Software AG has acted on its comprehensive cloud strategy with the announcement of its newest solution - Software AG Cloud Ready, which includes modelling, process management, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and cloud integration offerings. Software AG Cloud Ready'”with general availability in Q3 of 2011'”is designed to bring business and technical stakeholders together to collaborate on process transformation quickly, and at a lower cost.

Software AG Cloud Ready includes process design and strategy, process management, integration and governance in the cloud. Users of webMethods BPMS, SOA and integration have the option to run their development, test, and production environments in the cloud, reducing the time to market and allowing for dynamic provisioning. ARIS users benefit from broad collaboration during the design, simulation, publishing and monitoring phases of process transformation projects. And when combined, webMethods and ARIS bring IT and business together for faster strategic advancement across the enterprise.

'As more organisations embrace SaaS and cloud-based solutions, the need to integrate cloud applications and data with on-premise applications grows,' said Dr. Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer and member of the Executive Board, Software AG. 'Software AG supports this 'leave and leverage' approach by offering both integration and governance capabilities between any application residing on any platform. In addition our ARIS and webMethods customers will have the option to deploy our unified platform in the cloud, on-premises or with a hybrid of these scenarios.'

Software AG Cloud Ready also allows organisations to collaborate over the full process improvement lifecycle, from process strategy and design to implementation and execution, through monitoring and refinement for continuous improvement. It also provides governance across the entire lifecycle, ensuring that process and system changes are safely planned with full impact analysis and change management assessments. Software AG Cloud Ready enables extreme collaboration, reduces project time and lowers the total cost of innovation.

'Software AG Cloud Ready is the first phase in our cloud strategy, and it's a significant step,' said Susan Ganeshan, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing & Management, Software AG. 'This offering enables process owners, business leaders, enterprise workers and partners to work together on any digital device to drive innovation faster. That's what we call extreme collaboration.'

Software AG Cloud Ready helps customers take advantage of cloud computing in three ways:

  1. Use of new platforms, including Amazon EC2 and VMware for both ARIS and webMethods products
  2. Allows customers to run a combination of cloud and on-premise integration and process solutions with support for hybrid deployments
  3. Delivers integration and governance between on-premise applications and other Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings, such as Salesforce, Workday and Google

To ensure our customers' success with their cloud initiatives, Software AG offers a combination of software, service and industry expertise via our consulting services team. These Cloud Ready services include advanced preparation, strategy formulation, and process digitisation and analysis for cloud requirements spanning the enterprise, ensuring a smooth transition to cloud-based solutions.
