Progress Software Could Massively Expand Chef’s Reach Through OEM Relationships

One reason Progress Software isn’t as well-known as might be expected for a nearly 40-year-old publicly traded company valued at almost $1.7 billion is that its tools largely go to market as embedded components of some 1,700 other software developers.
