Enterprise Transaction Systems (ETS)
With our data management (ETS) business line we are playing a vital role in the IT landscapes of companies and government agencies around the world for many years. Software AG provides software solutions for mainframes and modernizes mainframe-based IT systems. In this way, we ensure the long-term protection of customers’ investments. Adabas offers our customers a high-performance database that is able to process 320,000 calls or 80,000 transactions per second. For decades, the Natural development environment has been the foundation of hundreds of thousands of software applications that formed the technical backbone of large companies and government agencies. Today, customers modernize their application infrastructures with our help by optimizing their performance and opening up their business-critical systems to new environments such as the Internet and digital business. The ETS business line includes technologies like database management, application development, and application modernization.
Software AG’s consulting unit (Global Consulting Services, GCS) implements customized IT solutions based on our own products and thereby provide customers with further operational benefits for their business. GCS offers consulting on service-oriented architectures (SOA), business process management (BPM), IT transformation, and customized resolution to product-specific issues.
The services of Global Consulting Services helps organizations optimize their strategic business and technology investments and achieve greater added value through implementation of BPE and/or ETS solutions.
A key topic for our consulting units is the transformation of enterprise IT systems into a digital enterprise. The main triggers of IT transformation projects today are overly complex IT structures, the need to modernize home-grown application landscapes, and the resulting unmanageable maintenance costs. Transformation initiatives rattle the foundations of companies’ existing IT architectures. Transforming an existing IT landscape to a new architecture does not just involve radically changing the information technology itself, but all the processes in an organization as well. The far-reaching implications of IT transformation for an organization increase the need for consulting. The goal of Software AG consulting is to harmonize and further develop IT systems, thereby enabling change and innovation based on existing systems. This makes the IT more agile and able to adapt to ever changing business requirements.
