Progress Delivers Innovative Personalization and Cognitive Capabilities as Well as Increased Productivity and Operational Efficiency
Progress, the leading provider of application development and digital experience technologies, announced the release of Progress Sitefinity 13 Digital Experience Platform. With this release, Progress introduces powerful capabilities for creating personalized digital experiences based on cognitive and data-driven insights. It also enables marketing and IT teams to be more productive, accelerating digital transformation efforts and boosting operational efficiency.
The current business reality, stemming from unprecedented global events, has forced organizations to leverage technology to amplify connections with their customers, partners and employees. Companies that had previously relied on live events or brick and mortar commerce must immediately accelerate digital transformation priorities. The ability to deliver seamless experiences that elastically scale to meet unpredictable demand, extend content across omni-channel touchpoints through APIs, optimize customer journeys using data from disparate silos and generate value through ecommerce are all critical capabilities in today’s unpredictable business reality. These are key technology challenges that organizations will need to address in order to survive.

“Never has digital transformation been more urgent than now,” said John Ainsworth, SVP, Core Products, Progress. “Consumer behavior and buyer preferences have shifted completely and for many this is just the tipping point. We are seeing established businesses get disrupted by smaller players who have been diligent in investing in their digital strategies far before the current global crisis. A more mature digital transformation strategy is no longer an option but a must.”
According to the 2020 survey from Progress, “Digital Experiences: Where the Industry Stands,” 79% of organizations have a mandate to use digital experience to achieve competitive advantage.
