The first step in achieving a modern, evolved application architecture that supports the organization as users and business demands shift and change, is to modernize to Progress Application Server (PAS) for OpenEdge. It is a scalable and cloud-ready server that optimizes operations and unifies all of the Progress products into a single powerful platform streamlining system management, with a scalable architecture, a simplified implementation, enhanced analysis tools and faster throughput and performance.
After one year of planning, design, development and testing, Project Infinity is complete, and the application is live. Feedback on the multi-threaded environment has been overwhelmingly positive, with data loading three times faster with PAS for OpenEdge than with the single- threaded Win32 application.
“Our customers are very happy with the scalability they’re seeing in their UAT environments, and we’re looking forward to applying that ability to our larger customers,” says Ken Walsh, Product Manager, Constellation Financial Software. “The application loads very quickly, and all hosted in the cloud. We have plans to continue to add to this solution and upgrading to OpenEdge 12.1 has made it a whole lot slicker and a lot easier to work with.”
