I Can See Clearly Now

Colleen Smith

The 2016 State of Embedded Analytics report states that embedded analytics drives 45% of a modern business application's value. That's because when analytics is built into the context of the application it significantly increases productivity with more fully engaged users, reduces churn by helping organizations to address the full needs of a customer, and increases company agility. Ultimately, more productive employees, happier customers and having the insight to make quick, effective business decisions drives increased revenue streams. Learn how you can achieve 20/20 insight with Progress OpenEdge Analytics360, the complete business intelligence solution for your applications.

Under Pressure

Colleen Smith

The digital age has amplified the demand for 24x7x365 access to applications and data. An organization’s inability to deliver continuous operations impacts customer expectations and loyalty, user productivity, and ultimately, the bottom line. Even routine maintenance has placed a burden on IT, as they work to ensure the delivery of accurate information and continued performance. This session will review newly available Progress OpenEdge technologies to help companies reduce the impact of planned and unplanned downtime, increase maintenance flexibility and deliver applications that help companies achieve the high expectations of high availability.
