Gartner Positions Progress as a “Visionary” in the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform as a Service

Progress Provides the Cloud Infrastructure Needed to Rapidly Build, Deploy and Manage Web and Mobile Apps, Simply, Flexibly and Without Restrictions

BEDFORD, Mass.--()--Progress today announced its position as a “Visionary” in the newly published Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform as a Service, Worldwide” report.1 The Progress aPaaS platform, Progress® Pacific®, offers a comprehensive way to build engaging application UIs that yield extended value via a wide spectrum of devices and technologies.

This is the second year Gartner has evaluated the Enterprise Application Platform as a Service technology (aPaaS) landscape. Progress was positioned as a “Visionary” for the second consecutive year, due to its completeness of vision and ability to execute.

According to Gartner, “More visionary users recognize that aPaaS offers an opportunity to create unique cloud solutions (unlike the generally available SaaS), while avoiding the burden of developing custom cloud capabilities (unlike the use of plain IaaS). The rate of adoption of aPaaS is growing and so is the maturity of the offerings.”1

Progress Pacific provides developers with both productivity and control for cloud-based apps, and is a complete platform for data-driven application development, deployment and management. Comprised of leading best-of-breed solutions–Progress Rollbase®, Telerik® Platform, Modulus™, Progress DataDirect Cloud® and Progress Easyl®–developers can build modern web-based applications and engaging mobile apps that leverage any data, connect to any “thing” and deploy in any cloud.

“We believe our inclusion as a visionary in the Magic Quadrant for enterprise aPaaS confirms that we have done an outstanding job of demonstrating a thoroughly modern path forward, and our current portfolio reflects a well-conceived foundation on which to build out additional services and capabilities," said Phil Pead, President and CEO of Progress. "It’s a reaffirmation of the vision and strategy inspired by our customers and partners.”
