…Software AG for IIoT, full life cycle API management and iPaaS!

I am beyond excited to say that Software AG has been ranked as a Leader by some of the most prestigious industry analyst firms this year, in some of the most competitive categories in our business.

Driving innovation in the integration and API and IoT product areas has been one of the primary objectives of our Helix transformation strategy. I’m happy to say that these hard-won awards are proof that we are not just on track but are also outpacing our competitors.

Here are the latest ones:

1. Software AG has been named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Industrial Internet-Of-Things Software Platforms, Q3 2021.

Industrial IoT is the driving heartbeat of manufacturers’ and machine makers’ journeys to operational efficiency and profitable new business models. This is in Software AG’s DNA: We help our customers make a meaningful impact to their visibility, efficiency and profitably through our Cumulocity IoT and TrendMiner platforms.

Among the eight providers Forrester analyzed, only Software AG received the top score in the “current offering” category.

2. iPaaS.
Software AG has been ranked as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise iPaaS, Q4 2021.

iPaaS, cloud integration platforms, are the future for the API economy and SaaS. Not only is Software AG a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise iPaaS, Q4 2021, but we also received the highest score in the “current offering” category.

“Software AG’s… strong citizen integration user experience (UX) and large number of out-of-the-box templates make for easy integration. But pro coders are well supported with tools for modernizing monolithic apps via advanced API management and service mesh.”

3. Gartner®* named Software AG a Leader in its September 2021 Magic Quadrant™ for Full Life Cycle API Management.

Our fourth consecutive year as a Leader! Our API management offering addresses the diverse priorities of users – from integration, API-product-led digital business to B2B ecosystems and microservices-based application modernization – and reaffirms our investments. And we are not finished!

Our latest version of webMethods helps customers make quicker business decisions by analyzing the data flowing though their integrations in near real-time – as well as automating and programmatically building out an API management strategy. This helps them to connect their enterprises as they seek to modernize their business and create great customer experiences.

In January, 2019, we started our Helix transformation program to build a future of sustainable, profitable growth for Software AG. Today that future is within our reach. Although 2020 had its challenges, the momentum we have achieved is undeniable and Software AG is faster, fitter, and more agile than ever.

We believe all this recognition gives us amazing proof that we have the right products for you to use and to deliver value. We are proud of what we have achieved, and we will continue in invest in – and add value to – our products in the future.
