In a fast-paced, Internet-dominated world, where technology is evolving in real time, the presence of legacy applications in organizations can prove to be risky, slowing down their growth and preventing them from achieving global competitiveness.
The Progress platform, once extremely popular among the customer community and adopted by thousands of organizations worldwide, has undergone several changes and upgrades. However, companies that have not embraced the newer and cutting-edge technologies are facing problems. Enterprises with older Progress legacy applications are finding it tough to remain productive in an environment where new age web and mobile technologies rule.
Clearly, they have a reason to modernize and keep up with prevailing technology trends that include the Cloud, Social Media, E-commerce, Mobile and Analytics.
There are several reasons why organizations need to modernize their Progress applications:
Companies running an application on an unsupported version of Progress (say a version older than 9.1E or 10.2B), are simply sitting on a ticking time bomb, where a disaster is waiting to happen. When they encounter a problem, they are unlikely to receive help or recover from the huge losses they incur. Their business itself could be at risk.
These reasons are creating a compelling need for companies with Progress applications to standardize, modernize, and consolidate their application portfolios. They need to do this in order to future-proof their technology investments, improve their market competitiveness and staunch the loss of revenues resulting from these aging apps.
