Software AG Outlines Cloud Computing Vision

Cloud is no longer only about cost savings, but rather business innovation driven by extreme collaboration

Software AG on Wednesday unveiled its comprehensive technology approach for cloud computing. Software AG fully supports the vision of extreme collaboration with cloud enabling technology to facilitate faster change and process improvement with greater participation from all key stakeholders.

Dr. Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer and member of the Executive Board, Software AG, noted that "Software AG's cloud strategy delivers additional value by embracing the vision of extreme collaboration, which goes beyond just cost savings to create a new way of innovating for the business. Cloud enablement of enterprise IT is the base for extreme collaboration which will remove the traditional barriers to collaboration between business and IT and accelerate business improvement."

Building on the core concepts of cloud computing (such as the use of Internet technologies and elastic scalability), Software AG's cloud vision  goes further: it combines dynamic and active process modeling, ad hoc management and monitoring, and decisions powered by the historic and real-time intelligence from a wide variety of enterprise and external participants. It includes the use of social technologies to support these ad-hoc and collaborative efforts. While spanning organizational and geographic boundaries, extreme collaboration brings together diverse individuals who work together to improve the business, the process, and ultimately the goods and services delivered by the enterprise.

What is new about Software AG's cloud computing is that more people, more knowledge and more history are leveraged to act faster within the context of the corporate strategy. Collaboration within and beyond the enterprise is supported by governance and approval lifecycles to ensure consistent quality and movement towards the overall company strategy. Empowering a new class of enterprise workers with a variety of mobile devices ensures the coordination and decisions are made in real-time with continuous, streaming updates while enabling individuals to join or leave interactions at will. The resulting solutions provide benefits to customers by driving business change dynamically and fast and, ultimately, dramatically reducing the cost of doing business.
