The Progress Application Server is really important to our application because it allows us to consolidate our business logic into one location creating a highly maintainable code base.

Jeffrey Brown Principal Architect, Infor

We were looking for better security and scalability. And PAS for OpenEdge hasn’t let us down. We had a 30% performance improvement after the very first build.

Morten Janum CIO, Mark Information

As a software architect, I’m challenged by how quickly can we take new technology from idea or prototype to the actual product.  With the Progress Application Server,  we were able to do that in days or weeks rather than months.

Jeffrey Brown Principal Architect, Infor

By moving to newer versions of OpenEdge, we didn’t have to build improved authorizations and security for Cloud migration from scratch. It’s been a great journey finding more innovative ways to serve our customers.

Morten Janum CIO, Mark Information

We stay current on the latest version of OpenEdge because the Progress Application Server is key for us. Without it we wouldn’t be able to create and maintain those cutting edge APIs that we need to extend our application. And we don’t have to learn the code because Progress hides that complexity from us.

Paul Knopf Chief Architect, Generation Fifth Applications

The Progress Application Server for OpenEdge has been the key driver for our modernization efforts by opening up our application to the rest of the world, providing new integration capabilities and allowing other applications to tap into the business logic.

Morten Janum CIO, Mark Information

PAS for OpenEdge opens the world up for us to be able to connect our business logic with various different technologies.
