IDS Scheer AG, the leading international solution provider of Business Process Management (BPM), today announced it has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the Gartner, Inc. Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools. Published on November 12, 2009 by Chris Wilson and Robert Handler, the recent research note, the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools, positions vendors in a particular market segment based on their vision and ability to execute on that vision.
According to Gartner, "Leaders have a broad range of capabilities to support EA, combined with the ability to deliver these capabilities to a diverse group of stakeholders. They all provide good capabilities to assist EA's mission to translate business vision and strategy into effective enterprise change. In addition, they have a clear vision of where EA is going and maturing."
ARIS Solution for Enterprise Architecture Management (EA) from IDS Scheer is an integrated solution for standardizing and harmonizing business processes and the associated IT infrastructures. Combining EA and BPM in a central repository ensures the coherency needed to plan IT environments in accordance with strategic objectives, reduce IT costs, and deliver flexible support for business processes. Established EA frameworks and standards, such as DoDAF, NAF, TOGAF, Zachman, IAF, and ArchiMate, are supported.
"We believe Gartner naming us to the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools is validation of our unique approach in this sector," said Peter Gérard, CEO and president of IDS Scheer AG. "We believe that business processes play a central role in tying corporate strategy with EA. Our customers are able to get a company-wide view of their people, processes, and IT assets."
