The meaning of Verve is “Energy and enthusiasm in the expression of ideas.” said Dr. Mathias Kirchmer, IDS Scheer’s Chief Innovation & Marketing Officer. “It encompasses Vitality; liveliness; aptitude; and talent.” added Dr. Kirchmer.
IDS Scheer also announced a channel revenue growth increase of over 300 percent compared to 2005 resulting from strengthened partnerships with resellers and system integrators such as SAP, PMOLink, AXXIS Consulting and Grupo Assa.
“In my new role leading ARIS sales in the Americas, I have been charged with aggressive, exponential license revenue growth for our ARIS Platform offerings. We will accomplish these goals with our strategic partner network of resellers and key system integrators. We will expand our network with partners who complement and enhance our BPM footprint. Our goal is to continue to maintain our BPM leadership position and achieve market share that will secure the ARIS Platform as the BPM industry standard,” said Charles Doucot, Managing Director & Senior Vice President, IDS Scheer Americas.
“In 2006, the SAP channel was a driving force for ARIS, with PMOLink, AXXIS Consulting, and Grupo Assa exceeding ARIS license projections as well,” added Dr. Kirchmer. “I am especially delighted with the success of our collaboration with SAP in the sales of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) solutions based on SAP NetWeaver(R) based on enterprise SOA. In addition, our strategic partnership with Oracle is already gaining traction after only six months. In 2006, we validated that our partner and channel approach to growing and sustaining market share in the Americas was the right strategy for IDS Scheer.”
According to Randy Surratt, CEO of PMOLink, Inc.: “The capabilities of the ARIS Platform are a perfect fit with our Project Management offerings. When customers understand that effective Business Process Management is a primary key to success for most types of projects, they are adopting a philosophy that will serve them well time and time again.
