According to Gartner, Inc., more organizations are adopting Business Process Management (BPM) as a discipline and scaling up their efforts to establish BPM as an enterprise program. The effectiveness of BPM in providing business efficiency was demonstrated by a 15% market growth in BPMS in 2009.

“BPM is gaining a greater foothold in the Middle East in line with efforts among its member economies to transition to digital societies. By marrying BPM and SOA platforms, Software AG solutions will be able to upgrade existing business systems in the Middle East to meet the new challenges posed by evolving markets and customer requirements,” added Marco Gerazounis, Senior Vice President, Software AG Middle East.
