Software AG Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools

By Software AG

Software AG has announced that it has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant by Gartner, Inc., a leading industry analyst firm, in its recently released Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis (BPA) Tools . Gartner defines BPA as the business modeling space in which business professionals and IT analysts collaborate on business architecture, transformation and improvement, including process analysis and design to support BP improvement initiatives.

With the ARIS platform, Software AG delivers a feature-rich tool set well known for its long-standing leadership in BPA, offering a toolset and diagrams to support strategists in defining and implementing their business strategy.

In reaching the Leader status, Gartner stated: 'Leaders provide mature offerings that meet market demand, as well as demonstrate the vision necessary to sustain their market position as requirements evolve. The hallmark of Leaders is that they focus on and invest in their offerings to the point that they lead the market and can affect its overall direction. As a result, Leaders can become the vendors to watch as you try to determine how new offerings might evolve.'

'We take great pride in being recognised as a Leader,' said Dr. Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer and member of the Executive Board, Software AG. 'Once again we have proven that ARIS is the established standard for Business Process Analysis. With the combination of ARIS for business modeling and webMethods for BPM execution, Software AG closely aligns business and IT departments around a shared vision for process improvement.'

This year, Gartner stated that 'Process modeling as part of BPA is becoming a starting point for a growing number of business process management (BPM) and compliance projects, and helps avoid the rush to execution that often results in poor BPM ROI or failure. Conversely, most BPM projects start with tools that include process modeling in support of workflow, and add a BPA tool to better understand their processes and simulate possible changes.'

Software AG´s BPA solution ensures that Business Process Management objectives are aligned with and implemented appropriately across the underlying IT systems and applications that support the business processes. The high quality of the combined design work of business and IT departments using business processes as their common language is the key factor for successful projects.

ARIS not only aligns business and IT but it can deliver consistent business-driven processes that reduce costs, increase process performance, transparency and agility'”within and beyond corporate boundaries.

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.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
