Introduction

Progress has established a central theme of ‘operational responsiveness’ that underlies all new product development, and is most directly implemented through its Responsive Process Management (RPM) suite. The term ‘operational responsiveness’ is described by Progress to mean the ability to alter the way that processes and systems respond to changing business environments and expectations.

Features and benefits
  • Progress Software expects that its operational responsiveness strategy plus its Enterprise Business Solutions segment will enable fast growth.
  • Progress Software has positioned itself among the leaders in growth categories such as BPM, APM, and CEP through strategic acquisitions.
  • Integrating point solution products into suites addressing common business problems will increase Progress's visibility in the enterprise market.
Highlights

Progress has built a solid business model from astute partnering with ISVs that embed Progress technology within their application products, but now needs to build visibility with enterprise customers to sell its new strategic solutions.Recent changes in senior executives at Progress have paved the way for a stronger marketing focus that could deliver the needed visibility, but at the same time the company must retain its core of technology visionaries.
