Fujitsu Limited,IDS Scheer AG

Tokyo, Japan / Munich, Germany, March 07, 2005

Fujitsu Limited and IDS Scheer today announced that they have entered into a partnership to offer a next-generation business process management solution. Under this collaboration, both companies will carry out sales and marketing activities based on an integrated offering of Fujitsu's Interstage Business Process Manager and IDS Scheer's ARIS Toolset™ for business process design and ARIS Process Performance Manager™ (ARIS PPM) for business process monitoring and analytics. The integrated solution will be showcased during CeBIT 2005, March 10-16, in Hannover, Germany at the Fujitsu exhibit (Hall 1, Stand 7f1) and the IDS Scheer exhibit (Hall 4, Stand E48).

By integrating the Interstage Business Process Manager product with the ARIS Toolset and ARIS PPM products, Fujitsu and IDS Scheer will offer a powerful business process management suite covering business processes from the design, through instantiation up to process execution, simulation, analytics and optimization. Customers will benefit from the integration by getting full support for the whole life cycle of processes in an enterprise.

Business processes will be designed with ARIS Toolset and then exported to Interstage Business Process Manager for process execution purposes. With ARIS PPM, the implemented processes can be visualized and analyzed for process reorganization purposes. This continuous business process management secures international competitive advantages and ensures an optimum ROI on the IT investments of customers.

"We are very excited about combining the complementary technologies of IDS Scheer and Fujitsu," said Dr. Wolfram Jost, member of the executive board and head of the product division of IDS Scheer AG. "This joint solution, featuring our best-of-breed products, will deliver high value life cycle support for the market."

"This alliance demonstrates our commitment to ongoing innovation and development," said Hiroshi Amano, general manager of Middleware Solution Division, Software Unit, Fujitsu Limited. "The offering between Fujitsu and IDS Scheer will enable us to meet our customer needs by delivering round-trip engineering practices in a next generation business process management solution."

"By unifying business process design collaboration and production deployment through 2007, BPM Suite (BPMS) technology will become the predominant technology for early service-oriented architecture (SOA) Web service design and business adaptability pilots. Through 2010, leading organizations will achieve new levels of efficiency/productivity and competitive business capabilities by pursuing a deeper, integrated process approach, both within and beyond their own enterprise, and by creating "killer" adaptive processes," said META analyst Janelle Hill, VP & Research Lead, Business Process Management Integration & Development Strategies Service.
