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:

1.Legacy Platform Upgrade
2.Technology Migration
3.Cloud Enablement
4.Cloud aPaas Migration
