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.
