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 organizations 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 Dr. Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer and Member of the Executive Board, 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 recognize 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.
