The nature of business as we know it is changing. Vendors are now swiping our credit cards on mobile devices. Offers we receive from our favorite retailers, hotels and airlines are more relevant and tailored to our personal interests. Our cars can send automatic health reports to us through email. We can order groceries online and even have them delivered to us. What’s next? This is where you chime in. What are those great ideas in your heads? And, how do you turn those ideas into business reality?
The building block that will help you turn these ideas into reality is software – yes – even for the non-techies out there. As the software you use becomes more capable of handling your requests, your ideas get bigger and more competitive. So, what does your software allow you to do? Have you looked under the hood at Progress lately? If you think Progress is all about writing your application in ABL, connecting to relational databases with DataDirect, or creating business rules with Corticon then you missed our entry into warp speed.
