Key Features and Benefits

  • Scalability: Our infrastructure is designed to easily accommodate up to tens of thousands of users, so technology will never limit your business growth.
  • Reliability: We like this quote from one of our end users, because it says it better that we ever could: “Even the 2012 phone system is down more minutes per month than our database has been over 6+ years!”
  • Cost: According to Nucleus Research, companies can reasonably expect to devote 70 percent fewer resources to support a Progress application than one running on Oracle. In addition, Progress applications don't require a full-time DBA, have a low resource footprint, reducing hardware and software costs, and require little to no maintenance.
  • Future-proofed: Of course, it's impossible to predict future computing requirements. But Progress takes away some of the worry by supporting industry standards and trends, including SQL, cloud and mobile, which are necessary for success at the application and business level.
  • Choice: Our platform is always standards-based, so you can choose the hardware or operating system that works for you.
