Effectively Transform Your Business with Software AG & AWS

Challenges Created by Large IT Environments

Whether businesses are migrating to Amazon Web Services (AWS) or working to optimize their existing cloud operations, they must understand the intricacies of their IT landscape. This knowledge helps them properly plan for change and efficiently implement it. For those with large IT landscapes, this can be challenging because it is difficult to gain proper visibility into your environment. As a result, it is extremely hard to understand all process conflicts or dependencies, or to identify overlapping, redundant, and obsolete systems that could be retired. Additionally, expansive IT landscapes often force personnel to spend too much time and money understanding a situation rather than acting on it.

Integrate Cloud Applications with Software AG & AWS

Siloed Application Data and Process Impact

State-of-the-art cloud applications for customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), marketing automation, and more are helping organizations improve internal operations and focus on core competencies. While these applications provide significant value, each represents a silo in the IT landscape: the data within applications can be inconsistent, incomplete, and duplicated, creating gaps in the data that is shared between applications. Additionally, many IT teams cannot keep up with the demand for integrated applications, pushing the responsibility to business analysts and non-technical users. The result is increased risk of bad datafrom manual data entry and custom integrations. The demand for integration projects can also create backlogs that are hard to keep pace with as your SaaS application portfolio grows.

The Software AG Solution

Software AG’s webMethods Integration Cloud Software AG’s webMethods Integration Cloud offers a platform for businesses to inte easily integrate applications, whether they reside on Amazon Web Services (AWS) or on-premises, making sure data is consistent and usable across all of their integrated applications.

Accelerating IoT Adoption Through Simplified Device and Application Management

Operational Blind Spots Lead to Missed Opportunities

Companies that manufacture or operate machinery and devices know that performance data is vital to their business. All too often, though, a lack of visibility into operations can prevent them from tracking and generating actionable data. This can keep companies from identifying operational inefficiencies and even prevent them from responding in real-time to signs of malfunction or failure. It can also mean missed opportunities to learn from and engage with end customers.
