Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in OpenEdge development? With the new Customer Validation Program you can collaborate directly with OpenEdge engineers and help us make OpenEdge a better platform for your app development needs.
Have you ever watched a cooking show and been intrigued by how the food is prepared? Have you ever cooked alongside friends and family and felt the joy of being a part of making something for everyone? And somehow the food always tastes better than if you had made it alone.
The new Progress Customer Validation Program (CVP), accessible through Progress Community, takes OpenEdge developers “behind the kitchen counter” with OpenEdge Engineering to see how they “cook their meals.” For the first time, customers and partners can collaborate directly with senior members of the development teams and express their business demands and technology needs to influence product direction.
The Customer Validation Program was developed with the intention of improving collaboration between developers like you and the OpenEdge engineering teams. In the past, engineers spent countless hours and resources building products that sometimes missed the mark, did not get widely adopted, or even were simply not understood by customers.
Now you can stay aware of the development progression of key enhancements and ask questions and give feedback throughout the process. As a result, our products will be tailored and improved to meet Progress customer needs.
As a CVP member you will gain exclusive access to:
In addition to clarifying use cases and priorities, CVP members can exchange experiences and challenges with their peers, explore best practices, and see the big picture of how and where OpenEdge is expanding and growing.
At the end of the day, OpenEdge is helping you develop business applications. The CVP is meant to improve communication between you and the Progress team, and to give you the power to influence future enhancement of OpenEdge as we continue to strive to deliver the best platform to help your business succeed.
So what are you waiting for? Join the CVP today!
