It's definitely great for medical industries that need the vast amounts of features/security/performance, however if you need something simple then this would be too much. There is a learning curve, and if you come from more common database technologies, then there will be a lot of differences to handle. Simple database needs would be better fulfilled elsewhere, but Cache is for when you need to take the next step, whether that be in the volume, complexity, or security of ETL.

I have had limited exposure to other development environments, but I have found Openedge to be well suited for the purposes that we are using it for. We have a windows client-server application that has been in use for over 20 years and has held it's age well. We also have a web based product using openedge appserver to access our backend code. The appserver functions well and we have been happy with it

I've only worked with products that do one thing before, but there's so much that Cache offers versus piecing different services together manually. Not only does the product offer a more robust tool-set, but the support is wonderful and I've never encountered a better vendor in any industry in terms of how well they interact with their customers and care about helping you solve your problems. They want you to grow and to get better.

The decision to use openedge with our particular product was made such a long time ago that I certainly was not around to make the decision. And most of the other products that would have been compared at the time are likely no longer around. Which does speak to the longevity and benefits of this product. When you look back and see how long the same product has been going forward with constant improvements and remaining relevant without major disruptive changes, it is worthy of some credit.

  • Openedge is a good business partner. They provide excellent support, education, and marketing assistance.
  • Openedge programming resources are readily available, both in the US and inexpensively overseas when additional staff is needed to complete projects.
  • Openedge is just as powerful, but much less expensive than its rivals, like Oracle.
