Progress has been named a Leader in the 2017 Gartner Mobile Application Development Platform Magic Quadrant, on evaluation of offerings, including NativeScript.

We’re proud to share that Progress has just been named a Leader by Gartner in their Mobile Application Development Platform (MADP) Magic Quadrant. We believe this is a testament to the strength of our strategy, both in vision and in execution. We couldn’t have done it without the support of the developer community, from your feedback on our UI components to contributions to our open source NativeScript framework—thank you!

We are excited because this recognition highlights the capability of our portfolio to make the life of today’s developer as easy as possible. From industry leading UI tools that essentially provide a building block for your entire front-end to help build engaging, modern app experiences, to versatile development, testing and analytics tools to power your backend, we’ve developed a suite of tools designed by, and specifically for, developers and their needs.

In particular, I want to highlight NativeScript. {N} adoption has taken off lately with over half a million downloads, and we believe its development was a key factor in moving us from a Visionary to a Leader in the Gartner report. I would also like to give a nod to Kendo UI for Angular. Whether you develop Angular apps with TypeScript or JavaScript, Kendo UI for Angular delivers true Angular UI components, not just wrappers for existing components. In tandem with our Backend Services, these are critical parts of our vision to make cross-platform native mobile development truly easy for developers.

Our mission has always been to enable our developers with the best tools—helping you not only weather technology changes but thrive through them. From desktop to web to mobile, we have been at the forefront of application development as it has evolved. We are excited that feedback from our community as a whole as well as Gartner continue to show us we are heading in the right direction, and we are looking forward to continue to helping you achieve your goals as they advance.
