Purpose: The Overlooked Force Behind Change

People, Technology and the “Why” Behind Tech Innovation

As endless global upheavals impact the everyday lives of people a world away, the connected nature of our humanity has never been more apparent. Abstract use cases for our technology vanish, replaced by the tangible power they hold to change lives. Join Progress CEO, Yogesh Gupta, as he explores the vital role high-impact digital experiences play in the world around us. Putting develop, deploy and manage in a broader context, together with the talent needs of the people who create it all, his session will leave you inspired to drive innovative digital experiences of your own.

Join Progress Executive Vice President and General Manager, Developer Tools, Loren Jarrett, as she helps us write the new priority list for our apps and experiences in 2022 and beyond, and plan for how to go about building them.

Securely Automating Hyper-Scale Infrastructures in a Hybrid Cloud World

Even amazing applications fall flat if not highly available. But if your infrastructure, testing and security practices are not on-point, you will be bottlenecked in waterfall while deadlines breeze past. Join Sundar Subramanian, Progress Executive Vice President and General Manager, DevOps, as he reviews practical approaches for reducing multi- and hybrid-cloud complexity with a policy-as-code approach that embraces all things cloud native. By the end, you will have a deeper understanding of how a strategic approach to DevOps can advance your app development and modernization efforts.
