Decoding vendor conferences

“Developer Conference,” two words that should alarm all enterprises as they begin looking for solutions to manage their growing digital transformation investments. Having been around the high-tech industry for many years, this is vendor code for: “We have built a product that is so complicated that we need to teach you how to use it before you to get any value out of it.”   There is also the slightly less daunting “Users Conference” – just a notch below the Developer Conference – where it’s unlikely you’ll be writing any custom software to effectively use a vendor’s product, here you should expect to spend a lot of time learning to configure said product correctly.

The team here at Trapize is dedicated to solving the hard problems facing businesses undergoing their digital transformation. So, if you’re looking to get a free conference vacation in a balmy location this year to learn our product, you should stop reading now. If your enterprise has $100K+ in budget surplus to get some developers working on securing each digital service you need for your digital transformation, look somewhere else. If your IT department loves the intellectual challenge of spending weeks tweaking complicated configuration, we here at Trapize do not have the product you are looking for. But, if your enterprise is looking to add compliance, governance and monitoring of the digital services you are using with a single click of the mouse, then we should definitely talk.

As we enter our public beta in the early fall, the Trapize API proxy currently supports over 2,000 of the most popular digital services in use by businesses today. We have profiled thousands of digital services and provided a powerful set of one-click controls for an enterprise to quickly control and monitor digital services crossing their perimeter.

If you would like to see a demo, reach out and let us know. It’s really, really brief – unlike those Conferences – so you can get back to enjoying your busy afternoon (golf, baseball, kid’s soccer, we won’t tell).
