Solid financials promote growth strategy
Solid financials and further improvement of
margins enable us to invest in the expansion of
business. This financial performance lays the
basis for success in the long-term and broadens
Software AG’s strategic options
In order to broaden our basis for growth, in the first
quarter of 2005 we
introduced new products;
penetrated additional geographic markets; and
strengthened our technology portfolio through
acquisitions and partnerships.
ApplinX successfully integrated
At the beginning of February, we concluded the
acquisition of Sabratec Ltd., a company based in
Israel specializing in integration software for host
systems. The integration of the company is proceeding
as planned. In the meantime, Sabratec’s
ApplinXin technology has been included in our
portfolio, expanding our solution portfolio for the
modernization of classic IT systems.
Worldwide partnership with Fujitsu
As part of the strategic expansion of our partner
network, we have entered an alliance with Fujitsu.
The central focus of the project is on the development
and marketing of a joint solution for Service
Oriented Architecture (SOA). Expected to be
launched in the summer of 2005, this solution will
improve the adaptation of IT systems and applications
to business processes. The project serves to
answer the interest of customers who seek efficient
solutions to increase their productivity and optimize
their business processes.
Certification expands partnership with Novell
The partnership with Novell was expanded at the
beginning of the year with the YES certification of
Software AG’s globally leading XML server, Tamino.
The certificate confirms the compatibility of
Tamino with open source products from Novell,
underscoring our adherence to the highest standards.
At the same time, the certification serves to
strengthen the position of Software AG among
users of open standard technologies.
