Celebrating 50 Years Bold!

On May 30th we become one of the only software companies to have reached 50 years of age – half a century of touching people’s lives.

Sanjay Brahmawar Sanjay Brahmawar

I am proud to be a part of the Software AG family to celebrate this incredible milestone.

Today we are one of the only software companies to turn 50. How have we done this? A variety of factors have contributed to this success; among those is the pioneering spirit of our people. The foundation of it all: Belief that data will change the world and create value for our customers

Our vision continues to fuel our mission. Each day we set out to empower enterprises with digital transformation using Software AG’s precise software engineering.

But what do I think has kept Software AG relevant & differentiated for half a century?

  • Our diverse teams all over the world that give us our creative and competitive edge
  • Our pioneering spirit that allows us to continually turn data into value for our customers
  • Our ability to deliver to the heart of customer’s needs
  • Our robust financial position & consistently generated strong cash flow
  • Our passion to not stop exploring the limitless opportunities of the digital future

And we plan to keep innovating for 50 + more years with a powerful slogan – Freedom as a Service – and a powerful new strategy, Helix, our pathway to sustainable, profitable growth. It is a transformational journey and our customers and partners are committed shareholders in this journey too.

To our customers: On behalf of all of us at Software AG, I would like to thank you for believing in us and our abilities to help you transform your businesses and to spark innovations. We look forward to continuing  to offer you the freedom to choose, the freedom to trust, the freedom to act and the freedom to share – across devices, apps, systems and people.

To our partners: Thank you for your collaboration in developing value-creating services for our customers. We are one team and proud to work with you. We look forward to future partnerships that don’t threaten existing products and services but offer you the freedom to rethink the opportunities of collaboration.

To our people: Thank you for your dedication to Software AG. Our heritage as data pioneers lives in the hearts & minds of our global team. It is each and every one of you that is driving our transformation from the inside out in your own unique way. We owe all this to you.

Happy Anniversary!
