Top position as enterprise service bus (ESB) provider
In a report entitled ”The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Service Bus“ published at the end of June, Forrester Research named Software AG as one of the leading global providers of enterprise service buses (ESB), a product which is essential for SOA architectures. Forrester Research, a renowned research institute for the IT industry, awarded us several top scores on the basis of over 100 assessment criteria. Software AG ranked first in the “strategy” category, which includes evaluations of vision, product concept and financial stability. With regard to our product range, Software AG’s high level of expertise in mainframe integration and particularly our crossvision Service Orchestrator and CentraSite Repository ensured the Company’s leading position. Both products are part of our new crossvision SOA suite, which supports companies in building, managing and controlling service-oriented architectures.

Editors' Choice Award for Software AG and Fujitsu
Together with our strategic partner, Fujitsu, we received the Editors' Choice Award from the U.S. magazine Intelligent Enterprise. The award in the category of “Companies to Watch in Business Process Management” primarily recognizes SOA and BPM solutions and relates mainly to CentraSite. The SOA registry and repository, which was developed in cooperation with Fujitsu, combines the strengths of both companies in the areas of SOA, ESB and BPM (Business Process Management).

Gartner confirms increase in market share
The markets have also honored Software AG’s particular contributions to the integration business. In addition to awards and growing sales figures, this is also reflected in the increase in our market share. In accordance with recent statements from the Gartner Group, Software AG belongs to the group of companies that successfully focus on newly emerging market segments. We were thus able to improve our position in the global market for Application Integration and Middleware (AIM). The attractive AIM market has a volume of USD 8.5 billion and growth rates of approx. 7 percent.
