Software AG Delivers a New Generation of Business Mashups with ARIS MashZone 2.0

DARMSTADT, Germany -- Software AG introduced a new version of ARIS MashZone today. ARIS MashZone 2.0 supports users in different departments with creating their own management dashboards for evaluating a wide variety of data. This data can come from different sources and be combined and visualized within just a few minutes. This gives companies a better overview of the interconnections between existing data, and allows them greater freedom in preparing key indicators and figures.

MashZone's Web 2.0 approach supports users in developing and using dashboards as a group. The improved information exchange leads to more efficient work and faster decisions. ARIS MashZone 2.0 introduces many new functions:

* New visualization components - With the integration of Google Maps, users can utilize all the functions of this application. Alternatively, they can also create their own vector maps. Threshold values can be represented better in diagrams, as can comparisons with values from previous periods.
* Connectivity – Users enjoy expanded access to data sources. With ARIS MashZone 2.0, databases can now be accessed through JDBC. Further data sources include ARIS Business Server and webMethods Optimize.
* Viewer – In addition to the editor and administrator, now a viewer option with read-only access is available with a less expensive pricing model.

MashZone 2.0 is now available as an Enterprise Edition that is particularly suited for business use. It offers greater rights management to optimize the release process for mashups. The JDBC data source and ActiveDirectory integration also simplify companywide usage. With Enterprise Edition, data and information can be prepared and shared easily. The new functions cover in detail:

* Access to distributors – existing organizational structures can be incorporated in MashZone via LDAP to simplify the distribution of access rights.
* Web integration – users' own mashups can be incorporated on the internet or intranet and published worldwide.
* Simplified access – Users can login to MashZone with their own personal company network access.

“After the successful launch of ARIS MashZone, we are now addressing larger companies with our Enterprise Edition. Management mashups can be generated ad hoc, published within the company easily and then developed further as a group. Dashboards created for specific situations enable users to make well-founded decisions faster and better,” states Dr. Wolfram Jost, Chief Product Officer at Software AG.
