Case Study: CGI's OpenEdge Modernization Journey
CGI Finland has been developing Progress-based ERP application for more than 30 years. Throughout that history they have run three modernization projects. The latest took place several years ago when CGI changed the technical architecture to support RESTful APIs, modern web UIs, native mobile applications and Power BI analytics in addition to the traditional Windows client. To be able to do that CGI adopted PASOE, Kendo UI and Progress Developer Studio, and enhanced their development process to enable the use of both local and offshore resources (designers and developers) outside the core team. This strategy accomplished the task both in time and in budget only in two years. How did CGI manage to do it and how did it change the application? Come listen and find out for yourself!
