I just needed to update everyone with some exciting news.....OpenEdge 11.0 is now shipping!
This release planning/work has been going on for two years and after a successful Technical Preview Program and Beta Program, OpenEdge 11.0 has finally gone into production and is generally available for all of our customers and partners.
Special thanks and congratulations goes out to the entire OpenEdge Team for a job well done!
We have been spending a lot of time talking to the Industry Analysts about OpenEdge 11.0 and they have all recognized it as a modern, future-proof application development and deployment platform. It enables our customers and partners around the world to build dynamic, business process-enabled applications for secure deployment across any platform, any mobile device, and any Cloud.
I spend a lot of time travelling around the world and talking to customers/partners and what I will say is that the three key themes of next generation developemnt that everyone is talking about are: CLOUD, MOBILITY and BPM.
So, that is why I think what has been done in this latest release is so exciting. Applications of the future need to have deployment flexibility - meaning they need to be able to run on any platform, any device, as well as in any "Cloud" - be it private or public. They need to think about the USER and how they gain access to the the business application and since mobile devices are more prevalent these days then desktops - they need to be able to support any device. And finally, the next generation applications need to adapt to change in the business, so the old way of hard-coded workflows is just not acceptable and there is a need to drive continuous change and process improvement even within packaged business applications.
So let's just say we are excited to deliver a platform that meets the needs of next generation application development...for a summary of OpenEdge 11.0, please review the “What’s New in OpenEdge 11.0” feature highlight.
