Software AG, a global leader in business infrastructure software, today announced that Current Analysis rated its recent introduction of the webMethods product suite as ‘Very Positive’, which is the research firm’s highest ranking. Current Analysis also noted that the introduction’s impact on the service-oriented architecture (SOA) market was ‘Very High’. An abridged version of the report, Software AG Solidifies webMethods Acquisition with SOA Suite Rollout [by Brad Shimmin (July 27, 2007)], is available at

The webMethods product suite brings together Software AG’s Crossvison product suite with the recently acquired webMethods Fabric product suite. Key components include an industry-leading business integration/enterprise service bus (ESB) solution; comprehensive SOA lifecycle governance; a full-feature business process management (BPM) suite with integrated business activity monitoring (BAM); and extensive legacy modernization capabilities.

According to Current Analysis, “Software AG unveiled the webMethods product suite as a comprehensive product portfolio for business integration, service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process management (BPM), and legacy modernization. With best-of-breed technology spanning the entire portfolio, the webMethods product suite maintains and extends current investments in Software AG’s Crossvision and webMethods technologies.”

“Enterprises have long wavered between the stability inherent in working with a single vendor and the enhanced performance offered by best-of-breed solution providers. With the introduction of the webMethods product suite, we’re bringing an end to these debates by giving them the best of both worlds,” said Dr. Peter Kürpick, President and Chief Product Officer of Software AG’s webMethods division. “This is particularly great news for current customers as existing technologies are being maintained and enhanced within the combined product portfolio. As Current Analysis suggests, the competitive impact of these effort is ‘very high’ as we’re raising the performance benchmark for the industry significantly.”
