Bedford, MA – April 04, 2008 – Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS), a leading provider of application infrastructure software to develop, deploy, integrate and manage business applications, has announced that Progress Software's Hub Vandervoort, CTO of SOA Infrastructure products, is featured in a podcast on eBizQ with Elizabeth Book-Kratz, Editor-in-Chief of eBizQ.
- When: On demand April 04, 2008
- Where: http://www.ebizq.net/blogs/archives/2008/04/post_1.php
- What: Progress Software's Hub Vandervoort discusses the current harsh economic climate and its impact on IT budgets, as well as the role SOA will play in providing a flexible and cost-effective platform to run enterprise IT organizations with Elizabeth Book-Kratz, Editor-in-Chief of eBizQ. The podcast will also feature economic outlooks as well as an explanation as to why CIOs are turning to SOA to continue innovation and growth while simultaneously cutting costs.
- Why: Given the volatile economy, Progress's SOA functionality is especially important as it allows CIOs to spend money only on the solutions specific to their needs, rather than requiring companies to incorporate an entire portfolio of products into their IT environments all at once.
