The Progress Software Business
Perhaps best known for application infrastructure software, Progress has earned its name for Progress 4GL, which arose in the 1980s as a Fourth Generation programming language. Technology evolution has seen Moore's Law shattered, with 4GL churning into OpenEdge Advanced Business Language, or OpenEdge ABL. Unique to this application development language is the English syntax used to abridge software development. Progress 4GL, now called OpenEdge ABL.

Progress recently launched its OpenEdge 10.1B, a revolutionary dependable and adaptable business application platform allowing you to set your business apart from the crowd. Application platforms such as OpenEdge provide developers and end-users quick launching of a standards-based, service-oriented product with a lower total cost of ownership.
The glory of WebSpeed is in its name. WebSpeed takes a Progress application and allows it to be used quickly and easily across a web environment or company intranet and extranet. This significantly decreases costs and is accessible to employees in any location. Many Progress applications can be enabled to run on WebSpeed, from orders and data-entry to customer support, RFID and inventory management.
