This release sees its major applications spanning across cloud, social networking and mobile computing along with integration with its recent big data platform acquisition, Terracotta.

An early customer access program for ARIS 9.0 and webMethods 9.0 is scheduled for Q4 2012, general availability starts in Q1 2013.
“Driving the adoption of these technologies is the need for faster, better informed business decisions”, stated Software AG CTO, Wolfram Jost. “But the real-time data, rapid scalability and fast decision making enabled by these technologies are of little use if companies still take months or years to implement business process change. The market will not wait, By integrating business processes with Big Data, the Cloud and both Mobil and Collaborative applications we are giving enterprises an uninterrupted rapid response service to changing market conditions”.
