WASHINGTON – July 26, 2018 – BSA | The Software Alliance today announced the addition of two new global members – Cadence and PTC. PTC was previously a regional member with BSA.

“We’re excited to welcome Cadence and PTC,” said Victoria Espinel, President & CEO of BSA | The Software Alliance. “As artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and cross-border data flows continue to benefit every industry in every economy around the world, governments should adopt responsible policies that allow emerging technologies to thrive. Cadence and PTC’s global expertise will help us shape these discussions and contribute to the success of the digital economy.”
