German software specialist Software AG is so keen to promote its acquisition of webMethods it brought forward the merger of the local teams by months. The integration had originally been scheduled for the first quarter of 2008, but the firm brought it forward and from August 1, the regional Software AG and webMethods teams began working together.

Software AG is making the most of this recent acquisition of the process and performance management firm, as it talks up the benefits of the two companies at GITEX Technology Week.

So enthusiastic was the vendor about its new offerings that it booked its largest ever space at GITEX in order to make the most of the opportunities the show brings. According to the firm's MEA managing director Mohammed Al Fardan, the company would have reserved an even larger space, had it been available.

The deal has allowed Software AG to extend its presence in key areas of the enterprise market, and has helped the firm create an entirely new market, according to Al Fardan.

"With webMethods, we now have leading experts in key areas, including e-government, service oriented architecture (SOA), business process management and enterprise solutions. But it also allows us to address a brand new market - software IT infrastructure solutions," he explains.

"Both companies had good product ranges - the merger of our two product ranges will give us the leading solution available in the market today," he adds.

The integration of the different product offerings is now a major priority for Software AG, and will be the vendor's main focus in the months to come.

The vendor now has two key focuses: enterprise transaction systems, and webMethods business solutions. The Software AG team at GITEX is promoting both of them, as the firm targets enterprises across the region.
