Product portfolio Our product portfolio is based on a technology suite which is a combination of standardized, finely tuned software products that are perfect complements to each other. Changed segment reporting as of the first quarter of 2013 Consulting services are offered in all three segments: BPE, ETS and IDSC. In the past year the decision was made to merge the consulting activities of all three reporting seg- ments under common direction. This took effect as of Janu- ary 1, 2013. This change results in a new reporting structure and thus a new segmentation. As of the first quarter of 2013 consulting services for all business lines will be merged and reported as a new segment called “Consulting.” Separating OUR BRAND ARCHITECTURE • Business Process Analysis • Enterprise Architecture • Governance, Risk and Compliance Management • Business Architects • Business Designer • Business Optimizer ...
