Business process management company IDS Scheer recently announced an expansion of its partnership with SAP AG that is designed to realize the benefits of enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA). Based on the expanded partnership, IDS Scheer and SAP will enable customers to take a model and process-centric approach to the implementation of service-enabled business applications from SAP.
Through the integration of the Enterprise Services Repository of SAP NetWeaver and ARIS technology from IDS Scheer (also available through SAP as SAP enterprise modeling applications by IDS Scheer), the company says customers will be able to more quickly identify opportunities to better meet shifting business needs and deliver rapid, tangible return on investment.
Building upon a long-standing partnership focused on developing tools that enable the understanding, documentation and analysis of stable business processes, the integration brings together the modeling capabilities of the ARIS product family with SAP's repository of enterprise services to create a conceptual business blueprint for enterprise SOA.
Via reseller agreement, ARIS is available from SAP as SAP enterprise modeling applications by IDS Scheer. The latest release of the Enterprise Services Repository of SAP NetWeaver is currently available to ramp-up customers and is scheduled to be generally available in the third quarter of 2008.Interested in information related to this topic?
