Social and mobile technologies are perhaps the most disruptive trends of our time, and they’re driving the way we create apps. Developers now want to be able to create all-purpose apps that can be used in any number of different ways on any kind of platform. They want to be able to deliver real business apps that are just as usable on a mobile device as on a traditional desktop.

This “ideal” is sort of like the little black dress that women talk about–a wardrobe item that’s suitable for any occasion with only minor embellishment.

With the integration of Progress® OpenEdge®, Corticon®, Telerik®, Rollbase® and Modulus, the Progress® Pacific platform can respond to trends in the marketplace that demand a comprehensive response—including social and mobile—quickly and easily, without having to write a lot of code.

This capability isn’t just “nice to have”–it’s going to be a necessity. Why? The whole mobile-social spectrum we’re seeing today is just part of a much broader computing environment. Described in a recent Fast Company article, “The Future Of Technology Isn't Mobile, It's Contextual,” social-mobile is a shift to ubiquitous computing that surrounds us at all times. This is a world where always-present computers are able to “sense the objective and subjective aspects of a given situation,” and will continually augment our abilities in both personal and business realms. It is a vision that is no longer technically far-fetched or remote. To make this next leap, developers need to embrace future-ready tools, and Progress is the place to start.
