Progress Software announced the availability of new data connectivity and application capabilities as part of its Progress Pacific application platform-as-a-service (aPaaS).
The firm said this is part of its strategy to give anyone the ability to quickly create, evolve and customize connected business applications on demand.
The features of the new cloud applications include Progress DataDirect Cloud service which enables applications to easily integrate data from popular SaaS, relational database, big data, social, CRM and ERP systems.
The apps also feature new integrated business process management and business rules management system capabilities simplify application customization using Progress OpenEdge 11.3 development software; and flexible processes, rules and workflows that can be easily configured to meet business requirements while greatly accelerating productivity.
John Goodson, chief product officer at Progress Software, said, “Customer and partner response to the Progress Pacific launch in June has been extremely positive and we are now delivering on our vision. It’s clear that the move to aPaaS is gaining momentum as time-to-market and data capabilities in new apps are key requirements for developers and end users.”
