Customers, partners and employees attended the 2017 Innovation Tour in Chicago. The days were packed with captivating speakers, workshops, customer meetings and “Meet the Experts” technical sessions on hot topics , such as the IoT, hybrid integration, API management and Dynamic Apps. Several partners who had sponsored the event got the opportunity to meet with prospects and also interact with Software AG product leaders.

The keynote speaker lineup was impressive with Geoff Colvin, Senior Editor-At-Large, FORTUNE, sharing his ideas on digital innovation. In addition to several Software AG executives, including Kevin Niblock, President & COO Software AG North America, Cognizant (Diamond Sponsor), and John Rossman, author, “The Amazon Way: 14 Leadership Principles of the World’s Most Disruptive Company” were present and shared their thoughts as well.

Several product sessions highlighted the new capabilities along with upcoming innovations.

During the “Meet the Experts” technical sessions, individual time with the experts allowed customers to further engage and ask questions about product enhancements, and to give valuable feedback on how we’re doing.
