In deployments worldwide, the webMethods BPMS platform is being leveraged by companies to become efficient and adaptive and thereby gain competitive advantage.
"Particularly in today's challenging global economy, it is essential that organizations find additional value in existing technology investments," Dr. Kürpick said. "webMethods BPMS has proven to help enterprises across the globe accomplish that goal. Already in 2009 Software AG is seeing companies acquire our products to support their strategies for operational efficiency and risk management."
The webMethods BPMS platform is designed to meet the needs of users throughout the enterprise, including business analysts, IT developers, process owners, line-of-business executives, and knowledge workers.
