Software AG today announced the availability of Process Live at Innovation World 2013, its global user’s conference in San Francisco. Process Live is a cloud based service integrating social collaboration with process improvement. Process Live is built on ARIS technology which has shaped the business process management discipline over the last 20 years. It offers customers maximum agility in running process improvement projects when required, without upfront investment or installation bottlenecks. As a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, Process Live leads to faster time to value while at the same time reduces total cost of ownership. Giving customers the scalability and flexibility offered by the public cloud is an integral part of Software AG’s strategy of empowering the Digital Enterprise.

With Process Live organizations can design, share and collaboratively improve processes in the cloud. It is easy to use and provides innovative ways to visualize process content enabling all stakeholders to participate in process improvement projects. To ensure enterprise-wide participation in process improvement initiatives, social collaboration is seamlessly integrated in Process Live. This turns a one-way street into an interactive dialog, increasing awareness and acceptance of process improvement initiatives. As Process Live is integrated with the ARIS Community, users can leverage the knowledge of over 250.000 community members for their projects.

 “Process Live gives us the opportunity to start process improvement projects immediately and to dynamically scale them based on demand and maturity. The new user experience and the social collaboration capabilities turn process management into an interactive dialog, increasing awareness and acceptance which significantly eases change management. Process Live truly unlocks social process improvement in the cloud which marks a new era for process management”, said Fabian Erbach, Partner at the management consultancy firm, the Litmus Group, in Singapore.

“With Process Live we have created a brand new native cloud offering, capitalizing on the experiences collected with ARIS in thousands of customer projects. We are giving access to the speed and accuracy of a process driven business to departments and organizations of any size”, said Software AG CTO Wolfram Jost. “With a fully scalable investment model, business users have direct access to powerful process improvement tools when and for how long they need them – without having to involve the IT department”.

Process Live is part of Software AG Live a cloud-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) suite. It addresses today’s business needs with unmatched speed, ease-of-use and full support for social and mobile collaboration. Subject matter experts and IT professionals alike across organizations can design and develop agile applications while easily integrating existing systems.
