Software AG Showcases ARIS 9 as a Platinum Sponsor of the Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit

Highlights compatibility with Process Live, introduced by the company last week as part of its new Software AG Live Suite.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md., 5/22/2013

Software AG today demonstrates the power of cloud-based collaboration technology to accelerate a business-outcome-driven EA approach with ARIS 9 at the Gartner EA Summit, May 22-23. And with the launch of Software AG Live last week, the company’s comprehensive Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) suite in the cloud, Software AG will highlight the compatibility of ARIS 9 to its new offering Process Live – a process modeling PaaS. The summit takes place at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

ARIS 9 combines cloud, mobile, social and analytic technologies for a significantly wider set of stakeholders possessing a broad range of business skills and experience to now contribute to a business-outcome-driven EA. ARIS 9’s intuitive and browser-based look and feel makes it easy to learn and use. It includes advanced analytic capabilities, dashboard technologies, spreadsheets and simulation capabilities. ARIS 9 also features ARIS Connect to support deployment in public, private and hybrid cloud environments with access through smart phones and tablet devices. With ARIS Connect, enterprises can draw on the potential of social collaboration to introduce process improvements at departmental and IT levels.

With Process Live, a major offering announced last week with the launch of Software AG Live, customers can for the first time design, publish and analyze their processes in the cloud. Integrated social collaboration capabilities ensure all stakeholders can be leveraged for process improvement initiatives. Key features include:

  • Social collaboration and networking

  • New patented user experience and visualization

  • Full support for mobile devices

  • Embedded dash boarding

  • Multi-tenant and highly scalable

Process Live is in beta test now and will be available the second half of 2013.  Demonstrations of ARIS technology will take place both days of the summit in Booth #P2.
