Software AG, a global leader in business infrastructure software, today announced that it is showcasing more than a dozen Process Frameworks at Innovation World 2008, Software AG’s global user conference taking place this week in Miami, Florida. Developed by Software AG and key partners, these Process Frameworks help enterprises fully-leverage the unique capabilities of the webMethods Suite to create customer-specific solutions to common business challenges. By taking advantage of these reference models, components and best practices, enterprises can dramatically reduce the time, cost and risk associated with implementing an customized, end-to-end solution.
“Traditional applications lock enterprises into a one-size-fits-all model while custom development entails potential risk and challenges in terms of sustainability. Our Process Frameworks build upon the proven components of the webMethods Suite and the flexibility of SOA and BPM to craft business-specific solutions at a fraction of the cost or risk,” said Ivo Totev, chief marketing officer, Software AG. “Each Process Framework encompasses real-world experience and best practices drawn from engagements with our global customer base. As a result, enterprises can also avoid much of the costly trial and error associated with implementing solutions independently.” In fact, in an October 2007 report titled Solution Accelerators Will Disrupt the IT Services Landscape, Forrester Research writes “a detailed study of more than a dozen solution accelerators shows an average time savings of 25% to 30% in an implementation cycle for the client.”
Software AG’s Process Frameworks bring together the software artifacts and proven methodologies to complement the webMethods Suite in addressing process-specific business requirements. These artifacts encompass both industry expertise and implementation best practices, and include process models, user interfaces, business rules and Key Performance Indicator (KPI) definitions. Process Frameworks are designed to make it easier and faster to take advantage of the flexibility offered by a comprehensive, best-in-class SOA/BPM platform to model, automate and improve critical business processes.
Specific Process Frameworks being showcased at Innovation World 2008 include the following:
In addition, key industry partners, including Satyam, Cognizant, Logimethods, Frontline Consulting Services, and QualitroITech, will be demonstrating at Innovation World 2008 their Process Frameworks for the webMethods Suite. These include:
Underpinning each Process Framework is the webMethods Suite, which brings together all of the capabilities needed to integrate, modernize and extend legacy systems and applications; connect more efficiently and effectively with trading partners and markets; automate, monitor and continually improve core business processes; collaboratively develop new, Web-based applications without coding; and reconfigure existing IT assets into powerful business solutions.
Key components of the webMethods Suite include:
