Software AG and ILOG Sign a Strategic Alliance for BPM/SOA Solutions

ILOG Joins Software AG's Partner Alliance

DARMSTADT, Germany and PARIS, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Software AG (Frankfurt TecDAX: SOW) and ILOG(R), (Nasdaq: ILOG; Euronext: ILO, ISIN: FR0004042364) one of the world's leading providers of business rule management systems (BRMS), today announced a strategic alliance. As an initial step, Software AG will globally resell ILOG's JRules, a key offering in ILOG's BRMS product line. Software AG will include ILOG JRules(TM) in its portfolio of business process management (BPM) and service-oriented architecture (SOA) solutions. The companies will also collaborate on joint marketing activities.

Software AG offers its customers experienced BPM experts and the appropriate technologies to achieve a continuous increase in the efficiency of corporate processes throughout the entire length of the value-added chain. With ILOG JRules, Software AG customers will be able to manage business rules throughout their entire lifecycle, giving companies even more control over complex business processes.

Business Rule Management Systems (BRMS) are essential to BPM applications because they ensure the highest levels of agility and customization for these applications. They also provide significant value in an SOA environment, where a BRMS creates decision services that are truly reusable and can be owned and maintained by business users. Using a BRMS, business policies can be managed independently of applications or processes, eliminating the need to make policy changes through traditional software coding. The resulting solutions provide for the continuous adjustment of processes in response to changing business conditions.

"ILOG is a global BRMS leader, making them a valuable addition to our Partner Alliance, in good company with technology partners such as IDS Scheer and Fujitsu," says Karl-Heinz Streibich, Chairman of the Executive Board of Software AG. "ILOG shares with us the vision of BPM and SOA; with it we are in a position to provide companies with the agility needed to succeed in international competition. Our solutions complement each other perfectly, providing maximum benefit to our customers."

"In Software AG, we have found a worldwide expert in XML, Web services, SOA and BPM that can deploy state-of-the-art SOA solutions, and which will enable us to leverage a large installed base acquired over the years" said ILOG Chairman and CEO, Pierre Haren.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point.
