Thinking with Progress

FDM4 Thinks with Progress

16 Aug 2016, Posted by FDM4 in BLOG Posts


After being in business for over 35 years, we can happily say that we’ve made some life-long partners along the way.
One of the steadfast partnerships we’ve held initiatives with for 20 years is Progress – a company leading application development and fostering digital transformation.

In keeping up with evolving technology and the online customer experience our clients are coming to find is in demand – and expected by consumers – one primary mission has been to move all of our software solutions to browser-based versions. Yet while this has been a necessary goal, the initial take-off with the idea presented many challenges.

“First off, FDM4’s customers needed to upgrade to OpenEdge 11.6 to take advantage of new features, and to stay compliant with new security requirements. Performance and data integration were also critical considerations, as was optimizing user experience.” But, the process didn’t end there. The next step was to use “…Kendo UI® by Progress on the frontend.” From there on out, application and development was effective and efficient, allowing our team to impressively complete a prototype in less than two days.

Hear about what FDM4 has to say regarding Progress on growth, building better software, and the future of our solutions. You can also download the full case study as a PDF here.
