Progress Software has unveiled a new version of OpenEdge, which features a SaaS platform that simplifies the development of business applications and eases the delivery of business-critical applications embedded with the technology required for managing them from development to deployment.
The company said that the new version of the OpenEdge SaaS platform will ensure all applications developed integrate seamlessly with key features from its Actional product, an offering that provides business transaction assurance that ensures the success of all transactions.
The company claims that with this level of management, companies can achieve operational and business visibility, root cause analysis, and the added control of services required in a heterogeneous environment.
In addition, the new platform also simplifies and streamlines the development, integration, and management of business applications for deployment in the cloud.
The enhancements within the new version of the OpenEdge platform will provide the ability for service providers to gain better visibility for applications that are deployed across both on-premises and in the cloud simultaneously, simplifying management for application based on its technology, the company said.
Colleen Smith, managing director of OpenEdge SaaS platform at Progress, said: “Our emphasis on expanding features that guarantee better business visibility and management of applications built using the OpenEdge SaaS platform is a strategy that addresses an undeniable trend that ISVs are now expected to not only act as software developers, but also to take on the responsibility of keeping those applications up and running.
“Our ISVs are increasingly being viewed as business service providers, and as their customers entrust more mission-critical business processes to technology, they want better assurances in place to mitigate the potential risk of downtime.”
