Progress OpenEdge

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

Oracle TimesTen

TimesTen is well suited for applications using smaller data or smaller data stores and where transaction response times are not as business critical. TimesTen is good for applications already accessing Oracle and need to cache data for quick read/write operations. TimesTen is not appropriate for large data dependent applications or applications requiring fast response times. In these cases, using Oracle database or Exadata is better

Pros

Progress OpenEdge

  • Openedge databases are practically bulletproof, even when shot down abnormally. The offer complete transaction scoping, before imagining, and also after imaging for roll foward capability.
  • Openedge has a very powerful and easy to learn 4GL programming language that can be used in a traditional or object oriented manner.
  • Openedge also has powerful web services components, fully integrating both SOAP and RESTful web services.
  • Openedge is completely scaleable from 1 user to a fully distributed global enterprise solution.

Oracle TimesTen

  • With basic database experience, TimesTen has a very short learning curve.
  • The installation and setup is easy and straightforward. The command line instructions are easy to follow.
  • The error logging mechanism is simple and efficient. The system log files are helpful in troubleshooting problems with using TimesTen.
  • The maintenance tools are user friendly and effective. Upgrading is easy and quick. TimesTen is almost a self-administrating database.

Cons

Progress OpenEdge

  • Lack of multi-threading capability has been a complaint among other developers here.
Gerald Meachem | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle TimesTen

  • Provide better monitoring tools of TimesTen daemon, servers and connections.
  • Improved support for APIs. The libraries lack the necessary code for applications to customize for applications using TimesTen.

Alternatives Considered

Progress OpenEdge

Openedge is a superior competitor when compared to Oracle. It offers everything you need - scalability, replication, encryption, transaction scoping, and tuneable performance. It is a true enterprise level solution, that has been around since 1984. You could pay more for a name, or pay less for better performance. It is fully supported, and as technology changes, Progress changes to support it

Oracle TimesTen

Sybase does not have an in-memory database until version 15 so TimesTen was ideal for caching data. TimesTen has reliable replication and backing up mechanisms. Oracle takes longer to set up and use for most applications where as TimesTen is a smaller DBMS that is quick and easy to set up and use. TimesTen can connect to Oracle for caching data so using Oracle as a backend makes sense

Return on Investment

Progress OpenEdge

  • The speed of development and ease of learning has had a positive impact on ROI
  • The cost of use has had a negative one. In this era of free tools everywhere, paying for a product is a challenge to accept.

Oracle TimesTen

  • TimesTen has had a positive impact from a developer's perspective because implementing TimesTen is quick and easy. The benefits of TimesTen can be seen almost instantly. For instance, the application start up time is faster, the data is easy to maintain and the performance is fast for TimesTen clients.
  • TimesTen has had a positive impact for the business because it can be made accessible to users via a GUI. This gives users transparency to the data at any time.
  • The negative impact is that once the TimesTen database has grown too large, the application should move to using Oracle database or else it suffers from performance degradation and stability issues.
