A model based on CGC/Saturation approach and the BFKL Pomeron was originally constructed to describe soft interactions at LHC energies [reference (a)]. It has now been extended to also describe hard interactions at HERA energies [reference (b)]. The model also provides a good description of inclusive production, rapidity and angular correlations over a wide range of energies. We outline the formalism and compare the predictions with the relevant experimental data.
