OpenEdge Developer Kit, Innovator Edition is out, and it’s packed with tools and features for cutting-edge mobile app and Web UI development in enterprise OpenEdge environments.
In April, we announced our new Progress OpenEdge Developer Kits (OEDKs) which provide the tools, training and tech support you need to succeed with OpenEdge development projects. And in true Progress fashion, we continue to build on the initial offering to deliver enhanced capabilities that help you respond to developing industry trends and development challenges. For example, the recent release of Kendo UI Builder by Progress is testimony to that commitment, delivering a responsive Web UI productivity tool that provides a modern look and feel to your OpenEdge applications with industry-leading technologies.
The world of business applications is constantly changing, and when we think about the need to address digital transformation, two key trends come to mind: the increasing importance of a satisfying user experience and the ability to extend your apps to mobile.
According to Gartner, “The user experience of an application increasingly determines its value and success. Especially in web-scale applications—a poorly designed UI/UX can quickly undermine the expected business benefits. And social networks can turn UI/UX shortcomings into very public failures.” In fact, in a recent CMS Report, 57% of users reported they wouldn’t recommend a business with a poorly designed mobile site. Kendo UI Builder completes application strategies for an improved Web app UX, while Telerik Platform for OpenEdge enables you to extend those apps to mobile, making the newly released Innovator Developers Kit the edition of choice for application modernization.
Created for R&D specialists seeking to leverage new technology trends such as SaaS, cloud or mobile, the Innovator edition of our OEDK is ideal for large development departments. OpenEdge developers looking to modernize apps or create new app functionality will find our Innovator OEDK to be essential to their efforts.
In other words, if you’re looking to build modern Web UI and mobile functionality in your applications—and you should be—this is the kit for you.
Here’s what you’ll get:
We’ve made it extremely easy to upgrade from your current OEDK version. Say you’ve already purchased the Premier edition. All you need to do is log into your Progress subscriptions, select the OEDK you’ve purchased and click the Upgrade Now button.
