SOFTWARE AG | ANNUAL REPORT 2012 110 which are connected via Software AG technology and mesh seamlessly. The webMethods Integration Server and the webMethods Business Process Management Suite created a “smart building” that helps Nemours provide better patient care—from both a medical and personal point of view. In 2012, Austria’s Process Management Association pre- sented its process award in the category of supportive pro- cesses to Hypo Group Alpe Adria for a project that was implemented with ARIS. Not only does ARIS BPE software help improve process efficiency, but it also supports the implementation of compliance-related requirements in enterprises. The process award is given to the year’s best processes and honors companies that develop their organi- zations with the help of process management. At numerous national and international trade shows, forums, and other events, Software AG seeks direct contact with industry experts, customers and prospects. As the IT indus- try’s most important trade fair, with more than 300,000 visitors annually, CeBIT receives a good deal of coverage by the business and trade press and enhances awareness among key stakeholders. At CeBIT 2012, Software AG demonstrated how enterprises from various sectors are implementing excellent business processes and achieving their business goals faster. Engag- ing IT projects and numerous case studies showed visitors how rapid responses are becoming more and more impor- tant in the digital business world. One example is a new reference project to speed up heavy transport between Germany and Austria, which illustrates how authorities can benefit from digital administrative processes. At our booth, Our U.S. subsidiary Terracotta helps us cater even more to the rapidly growing big-data market and expand our process and integration software business (ARIS and webMethods) in North America. In addition to the changes in the United States, we have made a sweeping increase in our staff num- bers in the Asia-Pacific region and we are well-positioned in terms of staffing and portfolio in the key markets of North America, EMEA, Asia-Pacific, and DACH. This increased pres- ence in core markets allows us to make attractive acquisi- tions even more quickly in order to capture a leadership position in technology and support our organic growth. Expansion of our customer base In 2012 we won promising new major customer projects, which speaks in favor of Software AG’s attractiveness in our highly competitive markets. At the same time we built on our existing customer relationships with new projects in the seven-figure range—a testament to the quality of our busi- ness relationships and the innovative strength of our prod- ucts. Two successful customer projects in 2012 laid the foundation for our inclusion in SAP Germany’s Validated Expertise program: We successfully harmonized the overall IT architecture for a regional energy supplier in Frankfurt as part of a business optimization project, and we systemati- cally adapted process and IT landscapes for a utility company from Düsseldorf to organize a broad grid network. In addition, Software AG delivered advanced technology for a hospital of the future for Nemours, an internationally rec- ognized healthcare facility for children. The new Nemours Children’s Hospital (NCH) was opened in October 2012 in Orlando, Florida. It is outfitted with ultramodern clinical, facil- ity management, maintenance, and other systems, all of
