A multi-pronged approach was taken and margins improved by approximately 20 points. Paul Hofstadler will describe the various elements of the Mentor Graphics program and lead a discussion with the audience to discover what other companies are doing to boost professional services margins. “No” Your Way to Maximum PS ProfitsPresented by Joel Hofman, Riverbed Following the decision to go private in early 2015, Riverbed Technology expanded the Charter of its Professional Services Organization to include meaningful profit.
