Software AG incorporates Research and Development into the XMLi and ETS Modernization strategic focus areas

23.07.2004


To support the continuing alignment of Software AG to the new strategy, Chief Executive Officer Karl-Heinz Streibich has restructured Research and Development. He has integrated the research and development of integration solutions into the strategic focus area XMLi and the research and development for modernizing Enterprise Transaction Systems, into the focus area ETS Modernization. Each Research and Development unit will be managed by a Chief Technology Officer. In the course of the restructuring, Dr. Peter Mossack, Chief Technology Officer of Software AG since 2003, will depart the company.



Karl-Heinz Streibich will focus the new structure on the requirement of our core markets and of the customers. The diversification of Research and Development will ensure that the units will respond to the different characteristics of the target markets addressing modernization of Enterprise Transaction Systems (product lines Adabas and Natural) and development of integration solutions (product lines EntireX and Tamino XML Server). The new structure allows the XMLi unit the required flexibility to react in real time to the continuous and rapid changing economical and technical requirements of the future market of integration solutions. As a result, the company can quickly evolve to become an early and leading provider of integration solutions. In addition, the new structure will allow Software AG to effectively cooperate and partner in our target markets.

The new structuring of research and development follows the establishment of product management and marketing into the strategic areas, ETS Modernization and XMLi, in addition to the restructuring of the worldwide research and development centres and units. The Chief Technology Officers of the strategic areas will be members of the extended Board and will report to Karl-Heinz Streibich.


In the course of the restructuring, Dr. Peter Mossack will depart the board and the company. Dr. Peter Mossack joined Software AG in 1982, where he was a member of the development team until 1990. He then ran his own software company until 1997, when he rejoined Software AG in April of that year as Vice President of Research and Development. On February 28, 2003, he was appointed a member of the Executive Board, responsible for research and development. He pushed the development of Tamino XML Server, the further development of 64 bit Adabas, Natural Single Point of Development in addition to the development of EntireX and therefore the foundation of XML – based integration solutions.

Im Focus: New proton record: Researchers measure magnetic moment with greatest possible precision

High-precision measurement of the g-factor eleven times more precise than before / Results indicate a strong similarity between protons and antiprotons

The magnetic moment of an individual proton is inconceivably small, but can still be quantified. The basis for undertaking this measurement was laid over ten...

Im Focus: Frictional Heat Powers Hydrothermal Activity on Enceladus

Computer simulation shows how the icy moon heats water in a porous rock core

Heat from the friction of rocks caused by tidal forces could be the “engine” for the hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon Enceladus. This presupposes that...

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
