International User Groups Conference

                June 8 - 9, 2021 I Online

                    Exchange that makes the difference

Looking for access to Software AG product roadmaps, best practices and industry insights? Want the ear of our presidents? Need intel from the people with real, hands-on expertise—your peers?

There’s a reason that our IUG Conference attracts more and more users every year: they can learn from each other and discuss what’s next in the industry. But it's not something we can do alone. It requires a vibrant community to provide perspective and push the limits of what's possible with our products.

That’s why IUG is designed by and for our users. This year, you will find the relevance you’ve come to expect, with new features we think you'll love - like a developer track and enhanced networking with a new "matchmaking" tool. 

Alone we can do little. Together, we can do so much. Join us at IUG to share the perspective that only you can!

                        Knowledge, Networking and Humor

Back by popular demand, this year’s event host is Pep Rosenfeld. Catch up with him at the General Session and find out what’s in store here.
