Software AG has unveiled its latest Process Improvement Accelerator, Prime, at the recently concluded SAPPHIRE NOW and SAP TechEd 2011 conferences in Madrid, Spain. Prime accelerates business optimization and automation projects based on specific industry requirements or cross-industry topics such as compliance, supply chain management (SCM) or customer relationship management (CRM) initiatives, resulting in better time-to-value.
Prime combines methodology, blue-prints and industry-specific best practices based on its award-winning Industry.PerformanceREADY offerings. Prime is based on industry standards such as ARIS and supports the creation and optimization of end-to-end processes based on a variety of applications such as solutions from SAP and platforms such as webMethods.
Christo van Rensburg, Consulting Vice President, Software AG Middle East, said: “The launch of Prime is a testament to Software AG’s continuing commitment to deliver value-driven solutions that allow our clients to maximize time and cost savings and optimize performance.
