Sharing a post by Peter Krensky from Aberdeen Group Publication:
I recently spent the day at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel for Software AG’s Analyst & Media Conference. CEO Karl-Heinz Streibich kicked things off by celebrating the German company’s 42-year history operating in the Americas (the City of New York was customer #3).
He emphatically stated that “providing mission critical software is our DNA” and delivered a presentation supporting the company’s core belief that “differentiation happens in the middleware layer.” I particularly enjoyed Mr. Streibich’s characterization of real-time analytics as driving while looking through the windshield (rather than checking the rear-view mirror) and being able to see around the corner. Aberdeen has produced several reports on the benefits of engaging streaming data:
- Real-Time Executives: Streaming Data into the C-Suite
- Real-Time Analytics: Executive and Line of Business Perspectives
- Real-Time Data Visualization: $%&# It! Do it Live!
CTO Dr. Wolfram Jost was next to take the stage. He walked through the core capabilities of Software Ag’s Digital Business Platform: intelligent business operations, agile processing, integration, in-memory data fabric, and transaction processing.
The platform sits between front office and back office systems and application and Dr. Jost enumerated numerous other functions and capabilities. I was most interested by his comments on the platform’s ability to provide governance. I have written two reports in the past year on the importance of data governance that align with his statements:
- Collaborative Data Governance: Peeling the Red Tape Off Data Discovery
- Customer Data Governance for Better Sales and Marketing
