“Today’s customers are looking for solutions which provide a high level of interoperability, simplicity, ease-of-use and a fast ROI. Corporate mergers, such as Oracle-Sun, make this virtually impossible,” said Dr. Peter KÃƒÂ¼rpick, Chief Product Officer and member of the Executive Board, Software AG.
“Customers are being forced to mix and match complex, patched together solutions. And they find this a little scary”, he said.
“At Software AG we focus on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), business process management (BPM) and integration and not try to be all things to all people. It makes us one of few horizontal integration solutions in an age where vertically integrated giants are attempting to dominate customers and markets,” he said. I’m not sure about the use of the phrase ‘attempting to’ in this context.
“Our 40-year history of independence and success, and our protection from a hostile takeover, ensures our customers have a reliable platform for driving future business results – faster,” Dr. KÃƒÂ¼rpick added.
