Gartner, Inc., named Software AG a Leader in its 2024 “Magic Quadrant for Strategic Portfolio Management,” published on May 28, 2024*. This is the third consecutive year that Software AG has been placed in the Leaders Quadrant. Software AG is positioned highest in the Magic Quadrant for its Ability to Execute.

Dr. Stefan Sigg, chief product officer and member of the Board, Software AG, noted: “We are pleased with the Gartner recognition of Software AG as a Leader in the strategic portfolio management (SPM) market. We believe that after four years of combatting the effects of disruption, businesses are eager to get back on a growth trajectory – and primarily with digital business initiatives. For this they need to strengthen their capabilities in planning and execution of an aligned digital business strategy. Our Alfabet SPM platform provides our customers the right mechanisms to create good digital strategies, execute on the required changes to the technology portfolio, and ensure desired business outcomes.”

The Gartner report says of Leaders: “Leaders recognize customers’ digital investments are essential to realizing business outcomes. SPM market leaders also effectively support customers’ pursuit of greater strategic execution effectiveness in the climate of continuous disruption and uncertainty.”

SPM is the ongoing process that focuses and aligns a company’s IT resources with its strategic business goals. As business and operating models change through digitalization, interdependencies between business and IT increase and need to be mapped, analyzed and understood. The new Alfabet 11 makes analysis of Alfabet’s uniquely large and interwoven repository of information on the IT landscape far more accessible to non-IT users. More contributors improves the quality of decisions on IT and business change to accelerate digital product development, reduce IT costs, and improve business resilience.
