Software AG today announced the introduction of process-driven Master Data Management through the acquisition of New Jersey-based Data Foundations Inc. Data Foundations is a leading provider of Master Data Management (MDM) software, used to optimize an organization’s business performance. MDM gives organizations consistent and reliable information from differing data sources which can be utilized by virtually any system, service oriented architecture (SOA) application or automated business process. The availability of consistent data across the organization will maximize process quality and enable faster more precise business decisions by corporations and the public sector. Organizations with a single and reliable view of business critical data will have laid a key foundation for strategic business optimization.
Software AG chose Data Foundations to extend its webMethods product portfolios based on its strategic fit with key corporate strengths including: ease-of-use, superior customer satisfaction, a strong Governance focus, deep integration capabilities and high transaction volumes.
Software AG will help customers adopt a process-driven approach to MDM, where investment in MDM is anchored to specific process improvement initiatives. Through this approach, MDM will play a key role in all phases of the process lifecycle. With Software AG’s ARIS Business Process Analysis platform, MDM will enable customers to identify and define key process master data requirements during the process modeling phase, while its webMethods Business Process Management and SOA product suite will enable customers to integrate master data management into process execution and integration. By taking a process-driven approach to MDM, customers will ensure business ownership of master data and create a key foundation for strategic business process optimization.
