Progress is a long standing technology partner of QAD, and Progress Exchange is an excellent opportunity for us to engage with members of the Progress community from around the world, share best practices and hear about the latest developments such as Progress® Pacific™ , Progress’ platform-as-a-service (PaaS),” said Gordon Fleming, executive vice president of QAD.

Manufactures Need Help to be Agile, Responsive and Focus on Innovation

In an on stage discussion with Karen Tegan Padir, chief technology officer at Progress, Fleming shared insights about the challenges facing global manufacturers and how QAD would be leveraging elements of Progress Pacific to deliver solutions in the future to help support QAD’s customers. Fleming highlighted the ever increasing data volumes and velocity that manufacturers need to manage within their systems, and the need for improved business process efficiency.

Tony Winter, chief technology officer of QAD presented a session on Application Lifecycle Management sharing QAD’s World Class practices in this area supporting development in the Progress OpenEdge environment.

QAD Helps Manufacturers Benefit from the Cloud

Fleming shared further insights on how many manufacturers were seeking to use QAD’s full-strength cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to improve operating efficiency and ‘free up’ resource to focus on other initiatives in their business. He also commented on the increase in data volume that is being spawned by compliance initiatives and the opportunities that this ‘Big Data’ may afford in future.

Close Partnership

“QAD has maintained a close partnership with Progress for more than 30 years and is pleased to have the opportunity to participate in Progress Exchange,” said Fleming.
