Progress Releases OpenEdge 12 – Delivers a Three-Fold Throughput Performance Improvement

Leading application platform includes always-on availability, Docker
container deployment, new in-demand enhancements, security and
scalability improvements

BEDFORD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Progress
(NASDAQ: PRGS), the leading provider of application development and
digital experience technologies, today announced the latest release of Progress®
OpenEdge®
, the flagship application development platform used by
over 1,500 enterprise software companies as the platform that powers
their business applications and over 100,000 enterprises across the
globe to simplify the delivery of mission-critical business
applications. Built for speed, the 12.0 release, available
today
, can deliver up to a three-fold improvement in database
throughput performance, and unprecedented responsiveness and
scalability. As part of Progress’ strategy to help businesses accelerate
digital innovation, OpenEdge 12 also provides a foundation for
application evolution, with advanced features and functionality that
give applications the always-on availability, agility and scale required
to support modern applications.

According to Gartner, “By 2023, 90% of current applications will
still be in use and most will have received insufficient modernization
investment.”1 With the release of Progress OpenEdge 12
platform, Progress continues its mission to offer customers and partners
the tools and technology necessary to stay competitive as the demands on
business applications evolve.

“Many enterprises around the globe are operating with business-critical
applications that were developed years ago, and struggle to continuously
deliver application functionality that will help them, and their
customers, evolve to meet increasing business demands,” said John
Ainsworth, SVP, Core Products, Progress. “Designed to support the needs
of business-critical application delivery and deployment, OpenEdge 12 is
the highest performing, highest quality, most secure and productive
version of OpenEdge ever released.”

“Our Portfolio+ customers are financial institutions that need feature
rich solutions that are highly performant, secure and continuously
available, and that comply with the most extensive regulatory
requirements,” said Michael Swan, Vice President of Product Engineering,
SIT. “We are impressed by the ability of OpenEdge 12 to deliver
significant performance increases and Progress’ focus on continuously
improving security and availability aspects of the platform. The new
container technologies available in OpenEdge 12 are especially exciting
as we move towards customer-driven cloud-based offerings.”

Performance and Scale
Enterprises are faced with an
ever-evolving database management landscape as the sheer velocity and
volume of data sources multiplies and device interaction explodes. With
the delivery in OpenEdge 12 of multi-threading, server-side multi-table
JOINs, and locking delay improvements, companies can not only expect up
to 200% throughput of data, but also improvements in overall application
performance, reduction in catastrophic outage data loss to sub-second
levels, more efficient SQL query resolution and more.

Agile DevOps
OpenEdge 12 helps organizations grow their
DevOps team into a streamlined, agile unit. New features include Docker
containerization deployment for Progress® Application Server (PAS) for
OpenEdge® platform, which allows developers to increase deployment
efficiency, make frequent updates and improvements, and maintain higher
availability of applications while improving resource utilization.
Access to source code analysis tooling and improvements to the
performance Profiler help produce a more robust, stable and consistent
codebase for easier collaborative development.

Continuous Availability
“Always on” is a necessity for
businesses across the globe. As more enterprises look to extend the
availability of their mission-critical applications and data, they are
under tremendous pressure to ensure the uptime of their systems.
Downtime, even if it’s a matter of minutes, can result in substantial
costs to the enterprise. Through new features such as Replication AI
file streaming, instrumentation-free performance profiling, and PAS for
OpenEdge HealthScanner, businesses can speed error detection and
resolution, minimize unplanned disruptions to their applications and
maximize uptime for their users.

Application Security
Continuously evolving the security
capabilities of an application is critical for both protecting the
system from unauthorized users and staying in compliance with regulatory
mandates, the latest being GDPR. OpenEdge 12 includes updates to the
latest version of Spring Security and OpenSSL to strengthen security in
PAS for OpenEdge and fortify secure communications. More secure file
permission on various utilities helps ensure authorized users have
access, and high priority issues identified by internal security scans
are addressed for improved infrastructure security.
