Darmstadt, Germany, Tuesday, November 3, 2015

At the ceremony of the Readers' Choice Awards 2015, the Digital Business Platform Software AG won gold in the category "Big Data Middleware". The prize was awarded for the first time this year by Vogel Business Media's "Big Data Insider" IT portal*. The portal’s readers had six months to vote on different vendors' offerings in seven categories. Nearly 30,000 readers participated.

Software AG and nine other vendors were nominated for the Middleware category with Software AG capturing the gold medal for its offering. The editorial selection included companies that had recently made a name for themselves through cutting-edge technologies, outstanding products or concepts and innovative strategies. 

Dr. Wolfram Jost, Software AG's CTO, board member and inventor of the Digital Business Platform, stated, "We are extremely pleased with our gold medal. We launched our middleware offering last year under the name Digital Business Platform to give organizations transitioning to digital enterprises exactly what they need: flexible and agile software that meets the requirements of the digital world's lightning speed. Our award confirms that we are right on track."

Software AG unveiled its Digital Business Platform a year ago at Innovation World, the company's annual global customer conference. It is the world's first platform of its kind, enabling companies to digitize their business models.  The platform consists of five components to be used separately or combined as a package, including business and IT transformation, in-memory data storage, integration, process optimization and data analysis.
