Software AG Demonstrates Market Leadership in Application Integration, Again

Software AG today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading industry analyst firm, has named Software AG a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Suites* for its webMethods Integration Platform.

The webMethods Integration suite enables firms to connect all their different, disparate on-premise or Cloud software seamlessly. This allows them to unify and optimize their A2A, B2B, Mobile, Big Data, Cloud and social applications across a single platform.

Dr. Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer at Software AG and member of the Software AG executive board noted: “Software AG’s webMethods Integration Platform is a powerful middleware solution used by more than 4,000 customers worldwide including many Fortune 1000 companies. This success is based on a continuous innovation approach, including organic R&D, acquisitions and customer requirements. We believe this Gartner Magic Quadrant validates these key principles.”

The webMethods Suite has helped many enterprises transform their businesses in revolutionary ways. An European airport uses webMethods ESB to achieve an Internet-of-Things infrastructure by automating their entire airport operations by integrating all of their enterprise applications, networking their 25,000 airport workers and connecting all their devices, such as digital displays and electronic doors. Moreover, a global retailer is deploying webMethods ESB in their international locations to automate and integrate over 3,000 stores to gain visibility across their inventory, supplies and Point of Sales systems.

Software AG customers have been delighted with recent innovations, especially features such as the Elastic ESB, which allows them to spin off new instances of a webMethods ESB on-demand to handle the natural peaks and troughs of their businesses. This provides dynamic scalability in public/private clouds, and also serves as a major IT infrastructure cost saving.

Dr. Wolfram Jost continued: “We are seeing enormous pressures and challenges facing CIOs with business leaders demanding a new and innovative integration approach, based on the growing need of cloud and mobile applications. The only way to react to this is with a stable integration infrastructure as a solid foundation. Software AG can provide a cohesive integration strategy and portfolio coupled with all the components necessary for companies transforming to a digital enterprise.”

For the Gartner Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites, Gartner evaluated Software AG’s webMethods Suite V9.6., which was released in April.

Functionality included in webMethods is Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) for connecting anything with everything, Universal Messaging for fast asynchronous messaging, B2B integration, Business Process Management for process orchestrations and monitoring, and metadata lifecycle management, in-memory ESB for unsurpassed performance and streaming analytics.

The recent webMethods 9.6 release brought significant enhancements to the core platform as well as to key modules including Elastic ESB, In-memory ESB and Enterprise Gateway.

Additionally, more Cloud integration functionality was added to further enhance an enterprise’s ability to connect to the Cloud as well as leverage their SaaS applications.
