Posted on October 11, 2013 0 Comments

Progress Exchange 2013 may be behind us, but we’re happy to report that this past week was filled with many exciting networking opportunities, product launches, and valuable insights from keynote speakers. During the course of the conference, the Boston Westin Waterfront hosted Progress partners, customers and employees, as well as press and analysts that were all eager to learn about our new direction as a company.

Throughout the week we held social media contests, live-tweeted sessions and took a lot of pictures to share the excitement, but we also had the chance to sit down for some one-on-one interviews with Progress executives, partners and customers. Watch the videos below to get answers to the most commonly asked questions around Progress Exchange 2013!

How do Progress customers use the solutions?
