Why Modernize ?

Why should I modernize my Progress application?

Technology life cycle is short and it is challenging to cope with the business needs of today.

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • Clients and users complaining about the poor interface of your application
  • Applications will only work on Windows, not on Apple devices, tablets and smartphones.
  • Competitiveness is under pressure due to a lack of user friendly UI and accessible
  • Missing business opportunities (Cloud, Saas, Apps) due to lack of innovation
  • Thinking about migrating to a new technology platform, but are aware of the risks and time involved.
  • Getting your development staff to learn a new programming is expensive and there is lack of motivation

The reason this approach is so successful is because it will give you the best Return on Investment (ROI) and lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Technology as an Enabler

The goal of modernizing is to deal with the business needs of today and although every company and every specific goal will be different, the approach will be the same. The best approach on modernizing is to keep as much as possible of what you have (obviously you don’t want to throw away investments that you can keep using), and at the same time use technology that enables you to cope with the business needs of today.

The biggest benefits of this approach:

  •  (re-) Use your current application and investments
  • Modern look & feel for a better user experience
  • Works on every device with a browser, anywhere
  • Reduce source code, save on maintenance
  • Focus on business instead of a risky and time consuming platform migration
  • Build applications rapidly, so a faster time-to-market
  • Re-training of workforce is not needed

The reason this approach is so successful is because it will give you the best Return on Investment (ROI) and lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
