Enhance your transaction-oriented business application development with the recently recognized process-centric Progress OpenEdge BPM, which features an easy-to-use interface anyone can manage.

Businesses today face a market that is changing constantly, and customers expect a modern business to be able to adapt increasingly quickly. At the same time, it’s impossible to consistently make the kinds of changes that will satisfy customers if you don’t have a holistic understanding of the way your organization operates.

To address these problems, you need something to help you make informed decisions and deliver results efficiently. A Business Process Management system like OpenEdge BPM is tailor made for that purpose. In fact, the OpenEdge BPM was recently recognized as a leader in the industry.

A Management Discipline That Works

It can be a challenge to fully grasp your company’s workflow. There are many transition points and silos within most organizations, and business applications are often designed to manage processes only within the boundaries of each department.

OpenEdge BPM allows you to think differently about process management, improving your end-to-end processes. Regardless of the team, the department or the technology being used, you can model how work is getting done, keeping track of who is doing it and in what order.

Using this tool, it becomes possible to improve governance and design more efficient processes, automating tasks where possible and integrating multiple enterprise applications. Decisions that used to take up valuable time, like escalating problems or distributing work across departments, can now be executed quickly and with consistency.

Ready for the Business Analyst

A BPM system is only useful if it’s easy to use—there’s no sense building a complex chart that is difficult to change and impossible to draw insights from. We’ve all seen flowcharts that complicate rather than illuminate a process, or which can only be managed by a few people with specialized training.

With a drag-and-drop visual interface, the OpenEdge BPM can be edited and managed by business analysts as well as developers, with little if any coding required. Because the processes are separated from application code, there’s no need to wait for release cycles or engage in a costly overhaul.

Bottlenecks and performance issues can be identified through easily accessible stats and dashboards, enabling managers and analysts to measure successes and shortcomings. Armed with this knowledge and the ability to make changes quickly, the time it takes to implement process improvements speeds up, boosting business agility and efficiency.

Award Winning Performance


CIO Applications, a leading publication focused on the information technology space, recently ranked the OpenEdge BPM in their Top 25 Workflow Solutions Transforming Business for 2016. They praised the ease-of-use, minimal IT complexity and low total cost of ownership of the software highlighted in this interview with Vice President and General Manager of the OpenEdge business unit, Colleen Smith.  

Reflecting on OpenEdge BPM, Smith noted, ““Our Progress OpenEdge platform acts absolutely well for the project management needs of organizations such as large construction companies, manufacturers, IOT market players, and consultancies—where proficiency in resources and workflow is critical for the success of business.” With OpenEdge BPM, you can drive optimizations across functional areas and systems easily and quickly, increasing your agility and reducing time to market.
