Dear ARIS EA Community,

great news: Software AG has been named a Leader in the April 2013 report by Forrester Research, Inc., The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Architecture Management Suites, Q2, 2013

  • Software AG is a leader in all Enterprise Architecture (EA) scenarios mentioned in the report
  • Software AG receives one of its top scores in product strategy, being most closely aligned to the needs of the Enterprise Architecture Management Suites (EAMS) market
  • Software AG receives among the highest scores among all vendors for ensuring high-quality and efficient business solutions.

The report evaluated our EA offering based on ARIS 9 which includes innovations, for example a new intuitive user interface, individual user perspectives, powerful spreadsheet capabilities, smart analysis capabilities and integrated dashboards, and ARIS Connect, a new product in the ARIS 9 release. ARIS Connect is fully cloud capable and can be deployed in any cloud environment. All stakeholders can now work together using an integrated social network to connect, com­municate and collaborate.

In the report, Forrester highlighted key features that landed our ARIS offering in the Leader category: “Innovations in the ARIS platform position the company for market leadership, particularly with large and geographically distributed EA practices.” The report also features four EA use cases, focusing on specific needs and priorities. Software AG is a leader in all of these scenarios. We believe that this validates ARIS 9’s comprehensive capabilities and the ability to handle numerous use cases and support customers in any stage of their EA journey. 

We are certain that the result proves that our significant investments in the four forces of mobile, social, cloud and big data/analytics have been the right strategy to cement our leading position in the EAMS market and further demonstrates continuity as a leader.

All the best
