Patrick Shields, CTO at Software AG, describes the rich history of innovation that Software AG has traveled over the last 4 decades. Software AG was on the bleeding edge at the dawn of enterprise computing, providing mainframe customers with IT sourced competitive advantage. Software AG continues this heritage of innovation, making digitization practical and meaningful for businesses today. Software AG has taken technologies that were industry "buzz words" a few short years ago and made them practical viable solutions that can be leveraged now, to create differentiation in the today's ever changing marketplace.
This presentation was a keynote address at Software AG's 2014 Innovation Forum, held in Johannesburg, South Africa.
