Software AG Joins Marketo's LaunchPoint Partner Ecosystem

Software AG Joins Marketo's LaunchPoint Partner Ecosystem Software AG (Frankfurt TecDAX: SOW) today announced it has joined Marketo’s best-of-breed partner ecosystem, LaunchPoint®.

As a result of the partnership, customers of Marketo, Inc., the leading provider of marketing software and solutions, can quickly and easily connect a wide range of cloud and on-premises based applications and data sources using Software AG's cloud-based integration service, webMethods Integration Cloud. Software AG provides connectivity to CRM applications including Salesforce, SAP Cloud for Customer (C4C), Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, as well as support for ERP systems such as SAP, Netsuite, and Oracle eBusiness Suite.

Shai Alfandary, vice president, LaunchPoint ecosystem, Marketo said: “In today's distributed IT environment, integration is a major contributor to success as organizations require data from more and more disparate systems – including CRM and ERP – to provide truly digital marketing processes. With Software AG integration of webMethods Cloud into Marketo’s LaunchPoint partner ecosystem, customers will be able to rely on the systems they have invested in while seamlessly integrating new applications as needed. Furthermore, Software AG enables SAP customers to connect to the Marketo Engagement Platform and empowers them to engage with their customers in authentic ways.”

Integration has evolved far beyond just onboarding partners and exchanging electronic documents. Today’s integration challenges include integrating applications no matter where they are deployed—in the cloud as a service, inside a company’s firewalls or at a partner’s site. Integration also must help manage external access to a company’s unique data and capabilities, by even unknown developers, via an API.

Wolfram Jost, chief technology officer, Software AG, said: “We’re thrilled to offer webMethods Integration Cloud to the growing Marketo community of marketers. Customers understand the need to constantly improve their engagement programs to reach new and existing customers. As businesses invest more heavily in digital experience and personalization initiatives, the ability to seamlessly integrate new and legacy applications and data is the key to a successful program.”

webMethods Integration ensures that all interactions between applications and users are governed with automated enforcement of a business’s policies and standards. It features extensive transformation and mapping to allow systems using different protocols and data formats to interoperate without changes. It also allows events generated throughout the system to be correlated to identify patterns for actionable intelligence. And, lastly, webMethods integration is offered with five nine’s of availability, instant scaling with demand and sub-millisecond performance.
