Several members of the AspenTech Zoho team had the opportunity recently to attend the Zoholics 2019 User Conference in Austin, TX. And it did not disappoint!

Austin’s mayor, Steve Adler, kicked off the Zoho User event by sharing the news that Zoho will be relocating its headquarters from Pleasanton, CA to Austin on a newly purchased 375 acres of land. This move will result in the creation of hundreds of new jobs in the metro area with a focus on finding and training local talent through their in-house technology program, Zoho University.  Zoho University is Zoho’s “no-cost college alternative” to traditional colleges and universities.
