“We’ve designed this new platform for application development with the user experience in mind,” says Phil Pead, president and CEO for Progress. “It is built for the real world and the businesses that compete in it and where speed and simplicity matter most. We’re making it possible for anyone to bring their ideas to reality.”

The new Pacific development platform will also include technology from Progress DataDirect, a data connectivity provider, to enable faster integration, analysis and decision making. Progress Pacific also features the ability to create cloud apps that can be deployed in multiple environments (cloud, on-premise, hybrid) as well as connect to existing applications.
