Software AG & IGATE Announce the Availability of “ProFound”, a Solution for BPM led Digital Transformation

ProFound offers clients a fast track to implementing industry specific, best-practice automated processes

Software AG (Frankfurt TecDAX: SOW) and IGATE (NASDAQ: IGTE), the New Jersey-headquartered integrated technology and operations solutions provider, today announced the launch of “ProFound”, a solution based on Software AG’s ARIS Business and IT Transformation product suite, to actively support the digital transformation journeys of its customers.

ARIS is part of Software AG’s recently announced Digital Business Platform designed to allow enterprises and the public sector responding to today’s rapidly digitising economies and new competitive landscapes.

As the digital economy, forecast to reach $3.4 trillion in the G20 countries alone by 2016, dramatically changes both business and customer engagement models, the need for enterprises to have a top down process driven approach is even greater.

ProFound will help enterprises update and evolve their business processes based on industry benchmarks and reference models to align with the current business landscape. Once the processes are defined, the underlying ARIS toolset will help integrate and operationalise their business processes, with various ERP systems including other business technology systems.

ProFound comes with pre-defined industry best-practice processes that can be easily adapted to the clients individual requirements. This accelerates the customers’ ability to implement automated and dynamic processes, improves the effectiveness of process design and allows the customer to better measure and manage their process.

The reference process models for different industry segments are being continuously added to the ProFound solution to expand its applicability. Presently, ProFound caters comprehensively to seven key industry segments – Resources, Hi-Tech, Diversified Manufacturing, Logistics, Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, and Engineering Projects & Construction (EPC).

Abhay Mahagaokar, SVP and Head of the Business Unit, at IGATE, said, “Right from the Internet of Things revolution to Source to Pay automation needs, our clients are under tremendous pressure to transform their operations. The ProFound solution very effectively helps our clients measure, benchmark, evolve and govern their processes with ease.”

Frank Schiewer, Senior Vice President, Global Partner Management, at Software AG, said, “Our expanding partner ecosystem is crucial to enabling our clients to fully address the huge new business opportunities presented by the rapidly expanding digital economy. ProFound is an excellent example of this with IGATE delivering deep, specific, industry expertise leveraging Software AG’s Digital Business Platform. This is the type of collaboration that delivers increased competitiveness and business value to our shared customers easily and quickly.”
