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.
