Can your application development team respond to the needs of the digital workplace? It’s no secret that mobile devices have conquered the US, to the point that most of us have more than one of them. In other countries, especially in the developing world, many people meet all of their computing needs with a smartphone.

Many of today’s workers need tablets and smartphones to be productive in their jobs. Such environments lend themselves to cloud, web and mobile applications that are dynamic and easy to use. In my many conversations with Progress® OpenEdge® customers, we’ve discussed this new digital workplace, and how we can improve OpenEdge so they can provide competitive products that enable them to succeed.
