Join us along with thousands of your peers from across the globe and from every industry, as we embark on a two-and-a-half hour inspirational and transformational journey – without ever leaving your desk.  This October, Software AG is hosting a new, virtual event that was designed with you in mind.  Introducing the 2017 Product Release:  A Software AG Virtual Conference.

This first ever virtual conference from Software AG is an unprecedented opportunity to be wowed by our latest product innovations, hear news about the capabilities and features you’ve been waiting for in the products you use every day -- and immerse yourself in emerging tech and the future.  Absorb it all in one single, virtual event from the comfort of your office. 

For your convenience, we’ve scheduled the event to repeat three times across three days to give you more options for participation.  If you are in Paris or London and want to participate during regular business hours, then Tuesday’s event is the one for you.  If you are in New York or Sao Paulo, then Wednesday’s event is your best option.  If you are in Tokyo, Singapore or Sydney, Thursday’s event would fit your traditional business day.  Attend the event that is best suited for you -- or hop between sessions over the three days based on your schedule and interests.
