Software AG is now offering innovative business solutions for different business scenarios, tailored to the needs of customers. Business solutions go beyond products to give not only the technology, but also the methodologies to jump start business process optimisation initiatives, no matter how large or small.
With the new business solutions customers can also choose the proven Industry.PerformanceREADY process frameworks which provide industry specific process blueprints and KPIs, helping customers to achieve business value faster.
The new business solutions, including PRIME methodologies and optional Industry.PerformanceREADY frameworks for specific industries or vertical applications, cover the following aspects within IT Transformation projects:
* Business process management (BPM);
* Business process analysis (BPA);
* Enterprise application integration;
* Service oriented architecture (SOA);
* Master data management (MDM);
* B2B integration:
* Process intelligence (PI);
* Enterprise architecture management (EAM);
* Governance, risk and compliance (GRC); and
* Application modernisation.
The business solution for BPM provides use cases for claims management, order management and lean manufacturing. With the business solution for BPA, customers obtain best practices for transformation projects like unbundling in the utility sector or best-in-class supply chains. The GRC solution offers pre-defined packages for a variety of regulations, like SOX, Basel II or Solvency II.
Customers can now choose the right solution for their specific needs, as well as two new ways to accelerate their success: PRIME for implementing best practices and methodologies; and Industry.PerformanceREADY for industry-specific business needs.
PRIME (process improvement methodology) is a process-driven methodology for implementing best-practice solutions. Based on long-term consulting experience, industry expertise and business process excellence best practices, PRIME consists of an implementation and deployment process for the entire business solution and project life cycle.
An inventory of assets, including guidelines, tools and templates, enables customers to execute detailed project steps and generate predefined deliverables.
Industry.PerformanceREADY supports customers in creating specific solutions for their business needs. It consists of ready-to-use best-practice processes and frameworks to enable customers to get value faster from a solution.
It ships with an industry reference model in ARIS based on best practices for specific industry and cross-industry processes, such as customer relationship management (CRM), supply chain management (SCM), human resources, finance and real estate. Reference models are in many languages and cover more than 30 industries.
