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

Even the more recent cloud platform-as-a-service (PaaS) newcomers such as salesforce.com and Google have further pushed Progress out of information technology (IT) news headlines.

Business Intelligence (BI)

Business intelligence (BI) and performance management applications enable real-time, interactive access, analysis, and manipulation of mission-critical corporate information. These applications provide users with valuable insights into key operating information to quickly identify business problems and opportunities. Users are able to access and leverage vast amounts of information to analyze relationships and understand trends that ultimately support business decisions. These tools prevent the potential loss of knowledge within the enterprise that results from massive information accumulation that is not readily accessible or in a usable form. It is an umbrella term that ties together other closely related data disciplines including data mining, statistical analysis, forecasting, and decision support.

The Art, Science & Software Behind (Optimal) Retail Pricing - Part 4


Part 1 of this blog post series expanded on some of TEC’s earlier articles about companies’ need for better pricing management and optimization practices. This series, which focuses on the complexity of pricing and promotions in retailing, was inspired by JDA Software’s recent “edu-nouncement” on leading retailers consumer-centric pricing and promotions strategies and by Revionics’ recent (and

Filling the Holes and Breaking Down Artificial Walls in a Process PLM Solution Set - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series established that the product lifecycle management (PLM) software market for process industries (food @ beverage, life sciences, chemicals, paints, consumer products, etc.) has not been well-defined as compared to its counterparts in the discrete manufacturing and fashion (apparel) industry segments. Indeed, the process PLM solution market is currently

Finally, while large discrete manufacturing PLM solutions can be configured to support global  product data management (PDM)  needs, they lack the required process industry PLM features.

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.
