Ernst & Young (EY) and Software AG are working together to help organisations digitise and transform using business process management, IoT and integration platforms.

The alliance between EY India and Software AG, an enterprise software and technology company, can helps organisations improve growth through digital transformation. The alliance is also active in Germany, where Software AG is headquartered, with further global expansion planned.

“Organisations are rapidly transforming to accelerate growth, remain competitive and adapt to the ever-changing digital landscape,” said Aman Dutta, alliance leader. “The EY-Software AG alliance combines the deep industry knowledge of EY teams with Software AG’s leading-edge technology to bring a unified experience to clients, helping them truly integrate processes, technologies and people, and drive deeper data-driven insights to accelerate transformation.”

Enterprises navigating transformation often deal with fragmented business processes and a lack of real-time data and insights due to legacy internal systems that cloud their visibility of the overall organisational picture. This can result in repercussions to business outcomes, costing organisations time, effort, profitability and delays in transformation.

Software AG’s enterprise-ready platforms, such as WebMethods, Aris and Cumulocity IoT, simplify the integration of applications, devices, data and clouds, empower streamlined processes, and connect things such as sensors, machines and robots. The Aris and Alfabet platforms are agile, cloud-based enterprise software for BPM and enterprise architecture.

The Aris platform offers process mapping and analysis; process mining; governance, risk and compliance (GRC) management; environmental, social and governance (ESG) management; and insights for automation. Its features unite business and information technology into an integrated platform to help organisations understand and improve their operations, reduce costs, support change, and transform at pace.

EY teams have deep experience in implementing Aris, Alfabet, Cumulocity IoT and WebMethods. These platforms leverage common standards to support numerous clients for BPM, process mining, IoT, analytics and integration across the globe. EY teams also use the Aris platform to roll out large-scale S/4 Hana implementations.

Through the alliance, organisations will have access to seamless and integrated products, industry insights and implementation services, helping them achieve their transformation goals. EY is establishing a centre of excellence exclusively for Software AG products and capabilities that will have more than 200 members based out of Bengaluru, India, to create a differentiated client experience.

“As the EY relationship with Software AG continues to grow, it is extremely exciting to envision the new opportunities that this expanded collaboration will help provide,” said Netta Nyholm, EY enterprise risk leader. “The alliance will strengthen how EY teams provide end-to-end digital transformation, while aiming to drive material impact for clients.”

Joshua Husk, chief revenue officer at Software AG, added: “We know that our customers are facing more challenges right now than they ever have before. Our goal is to help them overcome these challenges, become more resilient and ultimately grow. We can do this by simplifying the world of connected technology, people and data for them and finding new ways – large or small – to make day-to-day operations a little bit easier, more efficient or more profitable. There’s no better way to extend this mission we’re on than by joining forces with the EY organisation and we look forward to helping more customers together.”
