Software AG Named in the Leaders Quadrant for Business Process Management Suites

By Software AG

Software AG today announced that it has been named by Gartner, Inc., a leading industry analyst firm, in the Leaders Quadrant of the recently released Magic Quadrant for Business Process Management Suites. According to Gartner, Inc., more organisations are adopting Business Process Management (BPM) as a discipline and scaling up their efforts to establish BPM as an enterprise program. The effectiveness of BPM in providing business efficiency was demonstrated by a 15% market growth in BPMS in 2009.

'We have been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant for Business Process Management Suites and it is indeed a proud moment,' said Steve Keys, Senior Vice-President, Global Consulting Services, Asia Pacific & Japan and Managing Director, Australia/New Zealand at Software AG.

'We are committed to providing our customers with the innovative tools they need to grow their businesses efficiently and profitably, and we believe being a leader in the BPMS market shows we are doing that. It is also very significant that the market continued to grow despite a difficult global economy. We feel this growth shows that customers recognise BPM projects will deliver a real and rapid business improvement.'

As stated by Gartner, Business Process Management Suites (BPMS) is an integrated collection of software technologies that enables process transparency, and, thus, better management of the business process, as well as work in the process. A good "suite" represents the greatest degree of component integration because it provides a consistent and unified user experience across all the technologies contained within the suite, extending throughout the entire process improvement life cycle.

Software AG's webMethods BPMS and ARIS platforms represent a combined, full-feature, enterprise-scale solution supporting the entire process improvement lifecycle and allowing companies to model, design, execute, monitor, and manage complex business processes. In deployments worldwide, Software AG's webMethods BPMS is being leveraged by companies to become efficient and adaptive and thereby gain competitive advantage. BPM technology also allows companies to make the most of existing investments in enterprise applications, improve margins through efficiency gains, increase customer satisfaction and respond faster to changing market conditions. webMethods BPMS provides continuous, real-time information about business processes, allowing mangers to make fast, informed, and proactive business decisions.

Software AG's BPMS platform delivers additional value through codeless, composite application development and prebuilt integration with Software AG's comprehensive Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), SOA lifecycle governance, and application modernisation product offerings. By integrating PMS with market-leading SOA technology, Software AG helps companies coordinate people and technology into business processes that are quick, efficient, and easy to change. SOA also provides companies with a foundation of reusable service assets that provide greater flexibility and lowers development and maintenance costs, increasing companies' competitive advantage.

Software AG's local BPM customers include Woolworths, Fonterra, Perpetual and the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.
