Software AG Maintains Leader Status in Enterprise Service Bus Technology for the Fourth Consecutive Time

By Software AG

Software AG today announced that it has been named a Leader in the April 2011 The Forrester Waveâ„¢: Enterprise Service Bus, Q2 2011 report. Software AG is ranked the highest in current offering, strategy and market presence, from among nine Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) vendors and 11 ESB products. Software AG's ESB provides the foundation for a service-oriented architecture (SOA), combining application integration capabilities, high-speed messaging, and event-driven technologies to create a complete integration infrastructure solution. According to Forrester Research, Inc., Software AG and the other leaders' top-ranking position in this report is based on having 'the most-comprehensive support for ESB features.'

The research firm has cited Software AG as a Leader in the past four Forrester Wave evaluations in this category. According to Forrester, 'Software AG delivers an easy-to-use ESB' and has a ''¦ long track record of providing ease of implementation and delivering value to customers.' In fact, Software AG has the largest number of ESB implementations of any vendor in this evaluation.

ESBs have evolved quickly over the past several years, according to Forrester. The use of ESBs in enterprises is poised for continued growth. Forrester observed that 58 per cent of organisations responding to their survey are already using an ESB, and another 32 per cent are considering an ESB.

'To be named a leader in an industry that is built on delivering robust, innovative solutions to the marketplace is an honour,' said Dr. Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer and Member of the Executive Board, Software AG.

'Our ESB technology enables organisations to replace costly point-to-point integration with a flexible integration backbone. For over a decade, we have focused on providing a single platform for our customers' integration challenges that is both easy to use and powerful. Our ESB is the foundation of our entire webMethods suite and is an excellent platform for our customers to grow into.'

The evaluated components of Software AG's ESB included webMethods Integration Server, webMethods Broker, CentraSite and webMethods Mediator. webMethods Integration Server provides businesses a complete integration platform to integrate any system from any vendor. webMethods Broker is a messaging 'backbone' supporting high-speed messaging requirements between applications. CentraSite, the Business Service Repository for SOA and BPM, is a complete governance solution keeping services aligned with business needs. webMethods Mediator, when combined with CentraSite, completes the solution with governance of all services from development to run-time.
