With IDS Scheer, Software AG heads to the cloudDecember 6, 2010 No Comments
Now that Software AG has integrated the process design technology acquired from IDS Scheer, customers can next expect the German business process management vendor to enable the platform for the cloud, mobility and social collaboration.
Software AG will offer its ARIS process modeling platform and WebMethods execution engine as cloud-enabled offerings so customers can choose how they want to consume the components. “It doesn’t make sense to have the same technology twice, for clouds and for on-premise. That’s a big mistake,” said Wolfram Jost, Software AG’s board member responsible for product strategy and development, to a group of journalists during its annual international media day.
Specifically, Jost said that mistake is committed by cloud vendor Salesforce.com who offers services like Force.com solely as on-demand. “You can’t expect that all customers want to have the total portfolio on-demand,” said Jost.
Software AG finalized the integration of German-based IDS Scheer in early 2010.
Besides building features atop the integrated platform, the company will deliver complex event management and master data management products, integrated in the project stack as well as available standalone. Software AG announced in October plans to acquire master data management vendor Data Foundations.APPLICATION INTEGRATION, CLOUD COMPUTING, MOBILE
