Social Business Vendor Benchmark: the Experton Group places GBS in the "Leader" Quadrant
Frankfurt am Main
GROUP Business Software AG has been designated "Social Business Leader 2014" within the field of Integration Services. This was determined by analysts from renowned IT market research company Experton Group in their recently published "Social Business Vendor Benchmark 2013". For the very first time, they put market-relevant social business software products and services in 9 categories to the test.
To do so, the Experton Group investigated 100 social business offerings from relevant German providers between August and October 2013, following a standardised, proven method. Under Integration Services, they positioned GBS, with its GBS AppDesigner solution, in the Leader quadrant. "With GBS AppDesigner, we are opening up completely new possibilities, providing specialist departments with an intuitive tool for creating social business applications. Processes that were previously lengthy and complex are now experiencing a completely new agility and flexibility", explains Constanze Zarth, COO at GBS.
With the GBS solution, employees can create web-based applications and use them in combination with modern collaboration methods, without the need for any programming knowledge. AppDesigner's intuitive and flexible development environment therefore presents a web-enabled, user-friendly drag-and-drop interface. Using GBS AppDesigner, the resulting web applications can be seamlessly integrated into leading collaboration and social business platforms such as IBM Domino/Connections and Microsoft SharePoint. Social business applications developed using this solution can also be used on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
"Our recognition as a social business leader not only emphasises our commitment, but also confirms our strategy of giving social business platforms additional advantages through the simple integration of corporate applications", explains Andreas Richter, VP Marketing Europe at GBS.
