Software AG and Logica are expanding their successful partnership focused on helping organisations improve their business performance and counter the recession. The partnership helps organisations identify key business areas that can benefit from process automation and optimisation and counter the conflicting demands for cost-cutting, increased efficiency, regulatory compliance and accelerated M&A activity forced on organisations by the current economic downturn.
Together they have already implemented over 100 successful projects in France and will be extended to cover all major European markets.
“We now see increased levels of demand from other major European markets”, said George Abou Harb, enterprise architecture & SOA global practice leader of Logica. “Customers need to take advantage of these technologies quickly and that is where we can help. We have built a team that can identify the optimal business performance-enhancing project for an organisation and make it become real immediately. Moving fast in a recession is the difference between success and failure”.
