So far in 2021, Software AG has received recognition in three important evaluations from top industry analyst firms: Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), and Full Life Cycle API Management.

And I predict the recognitions will just keep on coming. Why? Because driving product innovation is one of Software AG’s top priorities. As part of our Helix transformation program, our focus most recently has been in the integration and API and IoT and analytics product areas. We believe the following acknowledgements prove that our focus and investments deliver the right products for our customers to deliver value.

We are proud of what we have achieved. Here is some of the latest recognition:

  1. Software AG has been named a Leader with the highest score in the current offering category in The Forrester Wave™: Industrial Internet-Of-Things Software Platforms, Q3 2021.

Among the eight providers Forrester analyzed, only Software AG received the top score in the current offering category. Our Cumulocity IoT platform scored highest in the 35 criteria, including device provisioning, device management, monitoring & alerting, white labeling and multi-tenancy, support for digital industrial platform, developer enablement, connecting devices at scale and 18 more.

The report said: “Software AG also supports an extensive array of industrial IoT protocols relative to other firms we evaluated, complemented by a fully functional Cumulocity IoT edge solution supporting thick and thin environments.”

  1. 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! The report noted that our API management platform spans a number of customer requirements from integration to B2B ecosystems and microservices.

This recognition reaffirms our investment, and we are not stopping there! Recently we introduced the latest version of webMethods with new capabilities for customers and partners to serve up data insights and automate business with APIs, integration and microservices. Through its new DataHub, Developer Portal and Managed File Transfer (MFT) tools, together with hundreds of connectors and integration recipes, companies can now simplify and automate to become connected enterprises.

  1. iPaaSSoftware AG has been ranked as a Leader in the Forrester Wave™ for Enterprise iPaaS, Q4 2021.

The API economy and SaaS demand have made iPaaS, or cloud integration platforms, more important than ever. Not only is Software AG a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise iPaaS, Q4 2021, but we also achieved the highest score in the current offering category.

Our webMethods.io platform scored five out of five in 14 of the 27 criteria, including:

  • User experience
  • API / event stream creation and management
  • B2B integration
  • Scalability and availability

We believe these three recognitions give us some amazing positioning in the marketplace and reaffirm our vision for our Helix transformation project and product investments.

We are proud and humbled to have been named a Leader in these three product evaluations—in our eyes, it’s all thanks to our dynamic and dedicated teams. We look forward to more awards soon!
