Requires you to leave email address so it looks like a honey trap to collect email addresses.

Without the mandatory contact form I'd probably read what's there, with the form I consider this spam.

Only the latest of many from the source.

Unfortunately this user has a track record of similar stunts. He asked a seemingly innocuous question on here in the past about barriers to modernisation that I answered and I ended up getting hounded about having a chat to quote for consultancy in modernising ours.

That is from JK Technosoft which is probably the largest Progress contractor shop in India. They have been pushing this all over the place.

So it is "legit" and not malware.... I guess PSC will have to decide whether or not it is appropriate for this forum.

i wouldn’t advise clicking the link. who knows where it goes? legit postings do not have scrambled links to some unknown place.

Marketing is such a tightrope walk and I have a lot of respect for people who do it well. Too little and you don't sell your product. Too much and you *** off your potential customers. And to make matters worse, the definitions of too much and too little are different for every person.

Personally I have no problem with honey traps provided the document is actually valuable. If it's marketing junk then I'll quickly unsubscribe and you'll never talk to me again. And I hope you all have email addresses dedicated to these kinds of situations.

I tend to use yours.

it's the scrambled link that set the alarm bells off.

the poster does not want us to know who he is.

Both the all too familiar name and the company name are in the e-mail of the original message.

Unfortunately they already did get hold of email addresses .

We have received several emails from this company since two days in which they either introduce their company or presents their framework.

Progress consultant in a wide variety of business applications for over 25 years.

Always disappointing these links that promise an interesting presentation and then come up with this question for contact details. I'm agent008, I want to be able to prowl and spy unwatched! I never give details (and if I can give false emailadresses etc.)  unless I really expect something worthwhile. Which is very rare. In the case above I expect only tedious crap.

People, just enter a fake email adres and you can read the pdf (you decide whether it's worth it or not, personally I think it's not...)

Perhaps we should all register with anurag.sharma@jktech.com

Ok, read it for fun. Worthless bla bla article. Meanwhile read this if you're interested in how to sell your product:

A few contributors seems to be prejudiced about our postings perhaps due to their past experience thus, they spammed our post without reading it and I really feel bad for them as they missed out on a valuable piece of information and inference.

Our post was to apprise the readers of a progressively complex issue of legacy modernization and innovation which is coming up as the model of prime importance for Progress users and providers to continue with Progress technology.

At first we tried to upload document rather than extracting email address, to make it more convenient for the reader  below is the link of whitepaper you can directly read it from here.
