RESTON, Va. -- April 11, 2013

Software AG today announced that it has been named a Leader in the April 2013
report by Forrester Research, Inc., The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise
Architecture Management Suites, Q2, 2013, receiving its top scores in product
strategy and among the highest scores among all vendors for ensuring
high-quality and efficient business solutions. In the report, Forrester
evaluated Software AG’s Enterprise Architecture Platform, ARIS 9.

According to Forrester, leaders “…provide a vast amount of prebuilt content,
including dashboards, workflows, and analysis that reflect best practices, and
can be used to help guide a customer’s maturation. This in addition to the
ability to configure and customize to client-specific needs.”

In the report, Forrester highlighted key features that landed Software AG’s
ARIS offering in the Leader category: “Innovations in the ARIS platform
position the company for market leadership, particularly with large and
geographically distributed EA practices.” The report also features four EA use
cases, focusing on specific needs and priorities. Software AG is a leader in
all these scenarios. Software AG believes that this validates ARIS 9’s
comprehensive capabilities and the ability to handle numerous use cases and
support customers in any stage of their EA journey.

“Being named a Leader in Forrester’s EAMS Wave is something we are very proud
of,” stated Dr. Wolfram Jost, CTO and member of the Group Executive Board,
Software AG. “In particular because this is the first time ARIS 9 was
evaluated officially in a Forrester Wave report. I feel that the result proves
that our significant investments in the four forces of mobile, social, cloud
and big data/analytics have been the right strategy to cement our leading
position in the EAMS market and further demonstrates continuity as a leader.”

Software AG’s Enterprise Architecture Platform enables customers to centrally
analyze, plan and transform their business processes, applications, data and
infrastructure. In order to streamline IT enablement of enterprise processes,
the solution helps companies in decision-making to deliver added value with
their EA initiatives.

Software AG’s integrated Enterprise Architecture Platform combines the
market-leading EAMS software ARIS and the company’s service repository,
CentraSite, along with proven methodology, best-practices and expertise. It
can be leveraged for strategic decision making, planning, implementation,
transformation, continuous analytics and investment control. All data in the
ARIS repository become the “single point of truth” for the management of an
enterprise.

ARIS 9 innovations for EA involve a new intuitive user interface, individual
user perspectives, powerful spreadsheet capabilities, smart analysis
capabilities and integrated dashboards, all due to the capabilities of ARIS
Connect, a new product in the ARIS 9 release. ARIS Connect is fully cloud
capable and can be deployed in any cloud environment. All stakeholders can now
work together using an integrated social network to connect, communicate and
collaborate.
