What is PRIME?


Starting an important initiative may feel like a daunting task unless you have done it many times before. That is exactly the benefit of our Prime methodology. You benefit from the best practices and methodologies time-tested by your peers in thousands of similar initiatives. Prime (Value Creation Methodology) is a process-driven methodology for implementing a Software AG product or solution. You can use Prime with our software products and reference content to confidently realize immediate results.

All core platform components of the Digital Business Platform are supported by a dedicated Prime methodology. Each of the methodologies consists of Methods & Procedures, Deliverable Templates, Project Accelerators & Tools and Best Practices & Samples. In this respect, Prime follows the structure of the Digital Business Platform. For instance, Prime Business & IT Transformation contains the Platforms ARIS Business Process Analysis, ARIS Governance, Risk and Compliance and Alfabet ITPM/EAM.
