- Leading industry analyst firm named Software AG in Leaders Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Back-End Application Integration Projects and Application Infrastructure for SOA Composite Application Projects.
- Software AG's comprehensive webMethods product suite and integration capabilities enable customers to solve complex integration problems and integrate all of their existing and future applications cost-effectively
Software AG, a global leader in business infrastructure software, today announced it was recognized by Gartner, Inc. in the 'Leaders' Quadrant in two of its recently released reports: Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Back-End Application Integration Projects1 and Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for SOA Composite Application Projects.2 The recognition evaluates vendors' ability to execute and their completeness of vision, something Software AG takes great pride in and is evident in its rich portfolio offerings of business process management (BPM), legacy integration, enterprise service bus (ESB), SOA governance, data integration and master data management.
"Software AG's placement in two recent Leaders Quadrants, we believe, is testament to our commitment to providing enterprise users with technology that speaks to the business value and strategic investments they desire," said Dr. Peter Kürpick, Chief Product Officer and Member of the Executive Board, Software AG. "We are extremely pleased with these honors and believe we are delivering on this strength with our webMethods suite to help companies integrate and build composite applications, automate and improve business processes, and transform the way they build systems."
Vendors in the application infrastructure for back-end application integration were evaluated on maturity and completeness of the product offering, reasonably affordable costs and a sizeable customer base that reports good experience with the vendor's integration technology. In addition, a vendor's product vision and the innovation exhibited in carrying out that vision was key.
Software AG's comprehensive webMethods product suite offers extensive integration capabilities, providing products that offer insight into identifying and fixing operational problems and enable fast and codeless assembly of interactive composite applications that are easy to use, even for complex integration problems. They enable companies to achieve business results faster by eliminating integration challenges that have plagued them in the past.
Software AG's composite application and application integration capabilities enable companies to meet and anticipate the needs of business by taking advantage of their existing IT infrastructure, and maximizing their investment in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). At the core of the webMethods suite is an advanced Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) that provides the foundation for an SOA. It combines proven application integration capabilities, high-speed messaging, and support for B2B, legacy applications, and event-driven technologies to create the most complete integration infrastructure available in the marketplace.
"Software AG's business solutions are designed to make developers more productive while maximizing existing investments," Dr. Kürpick added. "It's the ability to reuse services rather than recreate them, to build composite applications without coding, and to leverage existing legacy application investments."
