What Have Epicor and Activant Been Up To (Post-Merger)?

Progress Software Revs Up to Higher RPM via Savvion - Part 1


Late 2009 and early 2010 were characterized by a number of mergers and acquisitions (M@As) in the vibrant and buoyant business process management (BPM) space. The merger of Progress Software Corp.

Taming the SOA Beast - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog topic introduced the notion of how complex and tricky it can be to manage and govern enterprise applications' service oriented architecture (SOA).

Meet the New (Revolutionized) Progress Software


According to TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic, some solid, growing, and profitable software companies never get the respect they deserve. Progress Software is one such company. Its OpenEdge platform is now fully enabled for business process management and for the cloud, and it has a winning team of acquisitions.
