I met with some of the members of the New England PUG (Progress User Group) today. We talked about several things and asked them many questions. Among those questions were these:
1) Are you using OpenEdge Architect today?
2) If not, why not?
There were not many using the product (I remember one hand going up), and there were several reasons why not. In general, there seemed to be a fear to give up the development tool they were currently using. Fair enough. When I get my hands on any tool that I really like and am comfortable with I tend to keep it. And I'm pretty hesitant to have anyone take it from me.
So here's a few questions that I want you to weigh in on:
To burn off the stress of being in the software industry, I turn perfectly good pieces of wood into useless sawdust. OK, on a good day that's called "woodworking". Over the years, I've learned both the comfort of an old, familiar tool and the joy of finding things that I can do with new tools. It's no different with software tools. We want you to be comfortable and confident with your tools, but we also want to introduce you to new capabilities and methodologies.
So tell us what it would take to move you from your current tools to OpenEdge Architect. We've got a big new release coming up in 2008 and OpenEdge Architect will be an integral part of the capabilities in that release. So let's do some work now to get ready together.
