Four Major Progress Application Modernization Options and Their Benefits

September 1, 2015 By: Prabhu Jha

Progress application modernization is different from general modernization since Progress as a platform is still active and cannot be ignored during the modernization process. It is therefore important for me to outline the options that must be considered while modernizing a Progress application.

Also, the existing investment in legacy applications should be leveraged to meet the current and future business demands.

I will not be discussing these options in detail here, as I prefer to focus more on the various benefits and the costs and risks involved.

The options for modernizing Legacy Progress applications are:

  • Legacy Platform Upgrade
  • Technology Migration
  • Cloud Enablement
  • Cloud aPaas Migration
