Progress Software Corp, which has turned much of its focus to the Apptivity Server, which it acquired last year, has licensed Iona Technologies Inc’s OrbixWeb, which it will bundle on Apptivity 3.0 to provide Corba/Com interoperability. Sales of the company’s Apptivity products, which currently count for between one and two percent of the company’s revenue, look set to outstrip product sales of its client/server-based 4GL products by next year. But Apptivity is not the only area where the com pany is placing resources. It is also pinning a guarded hope on the future of its Internet Software Quality Products (ISQP), whose first appearance is in the guise of ProtoSpeed, a distributed debugger for the source and source-less debugging and monitoring of distributed Java applications. Currently ISQP software, on which 40 employees work, brings in virtually no revenue to Progress. But Progress’ CEO, Joe Alsop, told ComputerWire that the company will release ISQP products in the next two m onths that will aim to tackle the problem of overseeing devices on the network as the number of IP addresses grow. The new ISQP products will include an application called Lighthouse, for managing devices on intranets and monitoring the performance and availability of network resources. The company hopes that this area, in which it sees competition initially from start-ups, could grow to become a $30m-$40m market in the next two-to-five years.
