Progress #OpenEdge 11.7 is now available https://www.progress.com/openedge/whats-new#AppDev

BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced the latest release of Progress® OpenEdge®, the leading application development platform used by companies across the globe to simplify the delivery of mission-critical business applications. The 11.7 release, available today, includes capabilities to increase the ability to always be on, fortify applications through enhanced security, and keep accurate data flowing through the organization.

Today's enterprise applications are highly complex, are deployed on a variety of platforms and must meet stringent requirements for security, administration and maintenance. According to Forrester Research, "AD&D leaders need healthy systems not only as prerequisite for delivering business outcomes, but also to meet customers' expectations that you will keep their data secure and comply with relevant legislation."1

"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, Vice President and General Manager, 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."

High Availability - Replication Target Syndication
Mission-critical business applications drive business, which means uptime is of the utmost importance. 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.

Operating at Scale - Change Data Capture
Businesses are more reliant on data than ever, as a competitive differentiator. Therefore, data visibility and accuracy is a top priority. 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.

Application Security - OpenEdge Authentication Gateway
Increased IT complexity jeopardizes the overall welfare of businesses today. In fact, studies have shown the vulnerability of SMBs has escalated by 30% since 2013. Protection at the data source is paramount to a successful organizational and application security strategy. 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.

"Application development continues to grow in complexity, year-over-year. Progress provides us the tools necessary to make development in highly complex business environments easy and reliable. The company's product roadmap has always been clearly articulated, which makes the decision of betting my business on Progress an easy one," said Paul Knopf, Chief Architect, Generation Fifth Applications.

The Progress OpenEdge 11.7 platform is available today. For more details register here for our webinar on Wednesday, April 5 at 11:00 am ET or visit https://www.progress.com/openedge/whats-new.

  • Hi Monique,

    When can we expect the PDF documentation set to be posted?

    Also, it appears that the current-release HTML documentation (documentation.progress.com/.../index.html) is a mix of 11.6 and 11.7.  There are manuals for 11.7 features like CDC and Authentication Gateway.  But the NeRF manual shows what is new in 11.6.

  • The OpenEdge 11.7 documentation is available.

    This community page:

    community.progress.com/.../2911.openedge-11-7-product-documentation

    allows for individual downloads and for one download of the entire set.

    The team will work to find out why this link:

    documentation.progress.com/.../index.html)

    is not working properly.

  • I looked into my download site, but could not find any link to it. Do I have to Upgrade ? I have PSDN License.

  • I had to contact my account rep to get it added - the same may be true for you.

  • PSDN licenses have always been somewhat out of sync with general availability ... sometimes quite late, although I believe the last few cycles have been much better.  Contacting your rep can sometimes move things along.

  • In order to be able to add OpenEdge 11.7 to your available software on the Electronic Software Download Center, and to be able to activate the software using serial numbers and control codes, you will need to upgrade your existing subscription. This upgrade will establish a new 12-month subscription to the OEDK Edition, so the expiry date of the current subscription will be extended. You can go online, to the OEDK Subscription Administration System, find your subscription, click on the UPGRADE button and choose Release 11.7.

  • Rob,
     
    If you go to ESD, you can download the Doc & Samples installer for 11.7 now.

  • Does that mean that we can’t have it as a part of the PSDN license?
