META Group Ranks IDS Scheer as a Market Leader in METAspectrum Report on Enterprise Architecture Tools.

BERWYN, Pa. -- IDS Scheer North America, the leading provider of business process excellence services and tools, today announced that its ARIS Process Platform has been ranked as a market leader in META Group's METAspectrum(SM) report for Enterprise Architecture Tools. In the evaluative report, ARIS scored high in both presence and performance categories. IDS Scheer received top scores in terms of awareness, industry focus, share and personnel.

META Group is a leading provider of information technology (IT) research, advisory services, and strategic consulting. The METAspectrum evaluation provides an objective assessment of companies providing enterprise architecture tools and services to organizations worldwide. Specifically, the METAspectrum report on enterprise architecture tools details the market dynamics and technical functionality of today's enterprise architecture tool market - helping users identify relevant evaluation criteria, develop shortlists, and validate vendor selection decisions.

"Recognition from META is another testament of IDS Scheer's market leadership in enterprise architecture services and tools," said Dr. Mathias Kirchmer, CEO, IDS Scheer North America. "As a leading vendor in this area, IDS Scheer is committed to delivering cutting edge support for all enterprise architecture initiatives."

"This METAspectrum report was developed to provide organizations with perspective on the vendors that play in the enterprise architecture space, and analyze which tools would provide the best fit for their business operations," said Robert Handler, Vice President, Enterprise Planning & Architecture Strategies, META Group. "Enterprise architecture design tools have evolved into a business-critical component for leading organizations in recent years, and the vendors listed in our report have displayed technical excellence in the field."

According to Dr. Kirchmer, it is imperative that organizations understand their business processes before deploying mission-critical solutions. Compliance has risen to the forefront as legislation. Sarbanes-Oxley, for example, is driving the need for organizations to implement policies and procedures to ensure the integrity of financial reporting -- non-compliance can cripple an organization. Six Sigma is another example of a strategic initiative that must begin with an understanding of how companies conduct business today in order to map those best practices for success tomorrow. "Our ARIS Business Process Platform enables a multitude of enterprise architecture initiatives and ensures their ROI. Sarbanes-Oxley and Six Sigma are some key examples of leveraging our ARIS solutions for these corporate initiatives," he concluded.

The ARIS Process Platform is a business process modeling solution that includes a complete suite of Web-based tools to document, analyze, implement, and optimize organization-wide business processes.
