Software AG launches new solution for a digital world

20 Oct 2015

Software AG has launched a new web-based digital marketplace to help businesses better respond to the accelerating digitisation of the global economy.

The online hub allows businesses to select and leverage essential development components, such as solution accelerators, business process models, application components, adapters and industry frameworks, as well as fully-fledged solutions developed by Software AG’s partners and customers, according to a statement.

Eric Duffaut, Software AG chief customer officer and member of the management board, says, “Digitisation is changing everything. [Businesses] have to develop and implement their unique digital strategies if they are to meet customer and citizen expectations and remain competitive in this real-time, global market place.

“These are not run-of-the mill investment decisions. Every decision is a strategic decision and the Digital Marketplace will help make the implementation of digitisation easier, based on the collective experience of Software AG, our partners and customers.”

Building on the company’s community of more than two million developers and expanding partner base, Software AG’s Digital Marketplace will reportedly provide both companies and government bodies the ability to accelerate the value they get from their Digital Business Platform. 

Harish Dwarkanhalli, Cognizant vice president and global delivery head of integrated process management practice, says, “Co-innovation is a key part of the value that Cognizant and Software AG provide to our mutual clients as they digitally transform their business.

“The Software AG Digital Marketplace is a new way for us to highlight the innovative solutions, frameworks and thought leadership we’ve developed to help clients achieve new levels of business performance. 

“We are pleased that our Intra Day Liquidity Monitoring (ILM) Solution, built on the Software AG Digital Platform, is one such innovative solution that is part of the Digital Marketplace launch.

“By providing clients with easy access to proven components and best-practices, we’re able to help accelerate their projects and build an infrastructure for digital success.”

The Digital Marketplace enables users to browse and learn more about industry-specific cases, says Software AG.

Any business can then instantly increase and accelerate value from their own Digital Business Platform by leveraging development components, solution accelerators and even fully fledged solutions developed by Software AG or its partners.

Duffaut says, “Software AG’s focus is on enabling enterprises to identify and rapidly implement digitisation projects, to inspire to innovate.

“As the world’s largest independent infrastructure software company, we are always looking for ways to better support our customers.

“The Digital Marketplace is Software AG’s latest step in providing total customer support as a strategic business partner.”
