BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
(NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced new rapid application development (RAD)
capabilities in its powerful Progress®
Pacific™ platform-as-a-service (PaaS) with unique features for
creating and deploying enterprise-class mobile and web applications
significantly faster than traditional development methods and with less
complexity than other PaaS platforms.
The new mobile features in Progress
Rollbase®, the RAD component of the Pacific platform,
include innovative, standards-based capabilities that address major
mobility challenges that ISVs and businesses continue to struggle with
as they move business applications to the cloud. These include easily
creating customized mobile and desktop apps from a unified platform with
minimal coding, efficiently and securely integrating with backend
infrastructure, and fast, easy cloud deployment.
The Progress Pacific platform enables visual development of highly
customized hybrid apps for web, Android and iOS devices without the need
for costly, time-consuming, device-specific custom coding to access
native application features. This dramatically simplifies, speeds and
automates the process of augmenting existing enterprise applications
with mobile capabilities, building new ones that support both web and
mobile interfaces or building mobile-only apps.
