MASTER YOUR DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION WITH SOFTWARE AG´S DIGITAL BUSINESS PLATFORM
The world’s first Digital Business Platform empowers you to master your digital transformation. Make it your own to optimize your business digitally, develop new disruptive business models, and stand apart from your competition.
5 DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION FACTS YOU CAN’T IGNORE
1. Digital transformation must be at the core of your enterprise’s corporate strategy if you plan to compete in the future.
2. It’s not just about technology—you need the right plan and a sustained strategy to design, implement and continuously improve your operations.
3. Digital transformation is not a one-time project—customer expectations change continuously and new competitors using disruptive technologies will emerge.
4. By definition, packaged applications cannot differentiate your business. You need systems that reflect your unique identity.
5. To master your digital change, you need a digital business platform that connects every facet of your organization.
Tailor your own digital business platform to current and future needs using these five integrated building blocks:
BUSINESS & IT TRANSFORMATION
The transformation of business processes and IT is not just a technology task, it is a process on its own, and it has to be governed in the same manner. It’s a matter of strategy and human intelligence. With Software AG, your transformation is supported by tools and methods that help you align your business, IT and organizational requirements. Process transformation & management, risk and compliance management as well as enterprise architecture and portfolio management powered by ARIS and Alfabet are critical to supporting the decisions and strategy that will directyour digital transformation journey.
Emerging trends based on new technologies, such as cloud, mobile, APIs and the Internet of Things (IoT) will create a new need for seamless integration. While companies cannot ignore the investments they’ve made in their IT portfolios, they need to ensure that new technologies will be fully compatible with current and future core applications. Extensible, scalable and reliable integration backbones and API ecosystems powered by webMethods are key elements to rapidly integrate and manage systems, services, devices, processes, business partners and data to provide new business value and improve business performance—running either in the cloud, on-premises or in hybrid scenarios.
DATA & ANALYTICS
Making faster and better decisions is at the core of every digital strategy. Your business needs to collect, store, analyze and act on data that while it is fresh and accurate. You make decisions using static and real-time data every day. Wouldn’t your decisions be better if you could monitor a flood of real-time data, combine it with historical data sets, and make predictions about the future? In-memory data, streaming analytics and artificial intelligence powered by Terracotta, Apama and Zementis help you integrate, monitor and analyze data, events and transactions automatically to make smart decisions.
In the digital world, devices are both your eyes (sensors) and hands (actors). Because of this and many other reasons, device integration is key for the IoT and your digital business. Designed cloud first and multi-tenant, with telco-grade security and an open API-based, elastically scalable architecture, our device connectivity and management capabilities powered by Cumulocity enable you to easily start and succeed with your IoT project.
PROCESS & APPLICATIONS
On the journey to digital transformation, process has never been more essential. But the traditional focus of business process management has shifted. In the age of the customer, enterprises need dynamic apps—processes and applications that are customer-centric and quickly configured, optimized and changed. Dynamic process automation and low-code applications powered by webMethods combine process orchestration, work automation, lowcode development and predictive, closed-loop analytics. You can build your next generation of digital business applications quickly and change them “on the fly.”
YOUR PLATFORM MUST BE:
Modular—so you can add capabilities as needed as your architecture evolves
Open—to integrate with other stacks
Process-oriented—easily adaptable, enabling you to map software to processes
Fast—both in the sense of implementation and response times
Robust—proven, enterprise-ready and scalable
Real time—based on modern data streaming technologies
Self-adapting—using machine learning for continuous optimization
Cloud-enabled—open and built for cloud deployment, public, private and hybrid
New digital business models place new pressures on IT services. They must deliver a higher degree of agility and flexibility, lower latency, greater scalability and improved user experience. Automated decision making must be based on realtime analytics and hybrid transactional/ analytical processing.
Software AG´s Digital Business Platform provides a next-generation application architecture that incorporates the technologies every digital business needs to succeed, such as in-memory and big data management, event-driven architectures, microservices, container deployment and management as well as DevOps. Edge computing and cloud technology support distinctive ecosystems via public, private and hybrid cloud scenarios at the same time. Built on a modular basis as a real enterprise-ready platform, the Digital Business Platform comes with a common installer to deliver performance and security while it stays resilient and scalable. Agile methodologies and customer input drive continuous development in an ongoing release cycle to deliver value faster.
Our completely open and vendorindependent platform approach prevents you from vendor “lock-in” and preserves the option to work with multiple products and technologies in accordance with your time table. This saves you time and money, which you can apply to future innovation.
You also gain an “agility layer” that protects systems of record while allowing agile development and innovation to take place to differentiate your company from the competition. See your ideas come to life without the risk of critical errors and system downtime. Design your architecture for future process-centric application scenarios, scalability and transparency.
By quickly developing and integrating simple and efficient applications, you can regain control of your IT´s innovation to accelerate your time-to-market and respond faster to your customers’ demands.
