The Progress Pacific Application Server (PAS) for OpenEdge is an enterprise-class web/application server intended for use with anything from a single instance business application to a multi-tenant cloud environment.
In particular, it is designed to address the development and deployment requirements in hybrid (on premises and cloud) environments.
PAS for OpenEdge reduces the total cost of ownership for Progress customers and partners by reducing the efforts of rewriting existing applications or services, allowing them to focus on innovation, company officials claimed.
Progress OpenEdge business unit president Jerry Rulli said "We're in the midst of a dramatic shift in the industry. Customers are hungry for applications that provide choice in how, when and where they interact with consumer information.
"This proliferation of social channels, mobility and cloud computing calls for a next generation application architecture that didn't exist until now.
"The Progress Pacific App Server brings together core systems and applications, giving OpenEdge application users the back-end support they need, while also addressing the needs of application developers as they build forward thinking systems of engagement."
Progress ANZ managing director Craig Law (pictured) said "Australian businesses need agile applications and the Pacific App Server for Open Edge will allow local developers to be more responsive to organisations' changing requirements.
"These improved capabilities mean developers can create innovative applications within a simplified and streamlined framework.
"For the developer community, this also means that they can produce applications faster and more effectively, helping to speed up the development capabilities for local Australian businesses. This will allow developers to adapt and create applications that meet our market's unique needs."
