German car maker Daimler has adopted Software AG’s Alfabet software to help it with its programme of digital transformation. Daimler will use Alfabet to help continuously evaluate and optimise core processes across its value chain.

Alfabet is designed to provide enterprise architecture management, giving organisations insight on how to optimally support changes in the business with IT and reduce transformation risk. 

Alfabet’s analytics will play a key role in Daimler’s decision-making processes at management level. Daimler IT provisioning is built on the ServiceNow platform, and this will be linked with Alfabet to integrate strategic planning with production level management.

Daimler has also changed its subscription model with Software AG, which opens new options for the car manufacturer in the future. The new subscription model will enable the company to run Alfabet as a cloud solution and migrate other applications to the cloud as well. 

According to Alwin Schauer, Chairman of the Management Board of SAG Deutschland GmbH, a wholly owned Software AG subsidiary, and Senior VP of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, “We feel certain that subscription and Software as a Service solutions are the future and an essential component of the digital transformation of enterprises and business models. The renewal of our cooperation and the associated switch to the Alfabet subscription solution represent a key milestone toward the company’s digital future.”
