It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)

Marv Stone

Executives today find themselves reconsidering the security of their companies, particularly as businesses with revenues less than US$1B are victimized by breaches at an alarming rate of 10% a year. Addressing all the potential gaps can be a daunting task, but one of the fundamental greatest risks is legacy technology that does not meet current security standards. We’ll explore precautionary strategies and the various Progress OpenEdge technologies available to help protect your application and data.

With a Little Help from My Friends

Sean Garguilo

Mission-critical applications need to be flexible enough to continuously evolve as the business does. A modernization strategy married to an innovative application development platform is what competitive companies rely on to gain that edge. But escaping from the burden of legacy technology, or even just determining when best to pivot, can weigh organizations down to a screeching halt. Progress Services is a dynamic team of experts that can help you create your application modernization strategy, optimize existing technology and help you to develop unique OpenEdge skills and talent for the future, so your business continues to innovate, evolve and thrive.
