Starting with a sample existing (V9) OE Application you’ll learn in this interactive and hands-on workshop how to revamp your OE application using only plain OE ABL and new out-of-the-box Progress products and features. Simple and straight forward yet you’ll be astonished at what you can achieve in a short time-frame IF you use the right approach. Progress Professional Services developed a wealth of experience in modernizing OE applications throughout the world in many different industries. Whether you build your own applications or you are a Progress Application Partner, you will benefit big time from this session. While we leave most of the business logic untouched we’ll teach you how to gradually introduce new products and features AND thus avoid a big-bang shift. You will learn how to make your application sizzle without disturbing the day-to-day business. Sounds too good to be true ?? Well come and see for yourself !!

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to:
  • Carefully assess business and technical state of your application AND how to re-use as much as possible depending on future needs and wishes
  • What are the do’s and don’ts in application modernization times
  • How to split the layers and create a firm basis for any further modernization activity
  • Create a state-of-the-art modern future-proof architecture on which both the existing OE application as well as modernized modules will run seamlessly together
  • Avoid a big bang scenario and work in a step-by-step phased approach throughout your entire modernization journey
  • Seamlessly introduce new Progress products like Kendo UI Builder, OE-Corticon, OE-BPM AND all using the exact same OE business logic in the backend and without disturbing ongoing businesses that are using the application
