New Version of Progress OpenEdge Released
April 06, 2017

Progress announced Progress OpenEdge 11.7, the latest release of the application development platform used to simplify the delivery of mission-critical business applications.

The 11.7 release, available now, includes capabilities to increase the ability to always be on, fortify applications through enhanced security, and keep accurate data flowing through the organization.

"Our customers rely on the OpenEdge platform to develop and deploy the applications that drive their businesses. They depend on us to push the boundaries of the OpenEdge platform with every release, to ensure we're providing what they need to stay competitive," said Colleen Smith, VP and GM, Progress OpenEdge. "With the release of the OpenEdge 11.7 platform, we are building on this tradition of excellence with capabilities that provide additional assurances of uptime, security and accurate analytics."

Progress OpenEdge platform reduces uninterrupted access to systems and information with new Replication Target Synchronization and Online Index Activation. Replication Target Synchronization provides a three-pronged failover approach that eliminates a single point of failure and supports continuous operations. Companies can either configure the RDBMS for manual or automatic transition to meet their business needs in times of maintenance or disaster recovery. In addition, Online Index Activation enhances the flexibility of the database by easing the addition of new indexes to the schema at their convenience, with zero downtime , and without disrupting the application.

Through OpenEdge Change Data Capture (CDC), businesses can track and save only the changes to data — regardless of where they occur. This facilitates accurate, efficient ETL synchronization with other data sources, repositories and warehouses, supporting the increasing demand for ease in reporting and insightful, descriptive embedded analytics. Companies can minimize the time, effort and cost typically associated with data extraction and synchronization to enable them to drive business process improvement and make better business decisions, faster.

As part of the latest release, Progress announces the availability of the OpenEdge Authentication Gateway. The new offering enhances the security of the OpenEdge application environment by redirecting all access requests to a secure token service (STS) that confirms user legitimacy and protects from malicious data manipulation. The new OpenEdge Authentication Gateway leverages the modern, sophisticated Progress Application Server built on security industry standards such as Tomcat Spring Security and OpenSSL.
