We are using Progress OpenEdge for development of business solution for mutual fund related software's. We are using Openedge database and progress 4gl programing language both to drive our legacy application which was built around 1980's. We also develop REST and SOAP API's to pass the processed data to other applications using Progress OpenEdge.
  • Database Design
  • Support both procedural oriented and object oriented programming paradigm
  • We can develop both standalone applications (GUI or CHUI) and web based applications using webspeed
  • Support teleric controls
  • .net and java component also can be utilized using socket programming or Messaging Queue
  • Needs to improve the documentation
  • Licensing is costly
All the transaction processing system using progress 4gl which was developed late 80's and 90's. All banking and financial institution like JP Morgan, Well Forgo, Morgan Stanly and SS&C using progress 4gl database and programming language. Application build on Progress Openedge can be run both Linux or Windows server with little programming modifications.

We have used and continue to use openedge in the ongoing development and maintenance of a hospital pharmacy drug information system. The system assists the pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in the preparation, distribution, analysis, and other activities within a hospital pharmacy. Openedge assists us with an easy to learn development environment that still provides significant depth and complexity where required.
  • Easy to learn. Syntax is simple and easy to read. Quick development.
  • The database is reliable and requires little maintenance. Good performance.
  • Integration between the language and the database is an asset. But not so tightly integrated that the language cannot be used with other databases. We are also using Openedge with Oracle databases through their dataserver product.
  • Lack of multi-threading capability has been a complaint among other developers here.
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.

Our organization has been an OpenEdge Partner for 20 years. OpenEdge has been around since 1982 as a powerful relational database engine and programming language. We user Openedge to develop and deploy cutting edge logistics software for the trucking industry using both SAAS and on premise models. It is powerful, scaleable, and very cost effective when compared to its rivals, like Oracle.
  • 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.
  • The one area where Openedge fall short is not in its technology, but in its marketing. For many years it was the number 1 embedded database in the world, but nobody knew who they were. It makes it a more difficult sell to senior management as compared to something like Oracle.
  • I would like to see more integrated web based reporting tools that connect directly to Openedge.
Openedge is very well suited for financial based applications for 2 reasons. First, it has very powerful transaction scoping that will commit or back out of all changes in a transaction at once. This ensure that your data is "in sync." Second, it offers after imaging roll forward and replication for environments that require high availability or powerful disaster recovery in place.
