Leadership Position Based on Strong Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute 

Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced it has been recognized by Gartner as a Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms (MADP). This is the fourth consecutive inclusion for Progress. A complimentary copy of the report can be viewed here.

Gartner defines mobile app development platforms (MADPs) as tools, technologies, components and services that together enable an organization to design, develop, test, deploy, distribute, manage and analyze a portfolio of cross-platform mobile apps running on a range of devices addressing the requirements of diverse use cases, including external-facing and internal-facing scenarios.

Progress’ award-winning mobility solutions and leading front-end development portfolio includes NativeScript®, the open source framework developed by Progress for building truly native iOS and Android mobile apps with Angular, TypeScript or JavaScript.  The technology enables organizations to develop no-compromise native apps built with existing web development skill sets. Supported by the Progress developer community of 2.2 million and with over half a million downloads to date, NativeScript is fast becoming the open source framework of choice for native mobile development. Progress’ award-winning front-end solutions also include Progress Kendo UI, the most complete toolset for creating engaging responsive web applications, and Progress Telerik the leading UI tooling for .NET applications. These front-end capabilities are combined with a modern, reliable, scalable and secure backend, built to run microservices to enable delivery of today’s modern multi-channel applications.

According to Gartner, “Leaders must represent a strong combination of Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. In the MADP sector, this means that Leaders are not only good at cross-platform development, deployment and management across the full life cycle, but also have a good vision of the omnichannel and post-app requirements, support for multiple architectures and standards, a solid understanding of IT requirements, and scalable sales channels and partnerships. Leaders must provide platforms that are easy to purchase, program, deploy and upgrade, and which can connect to a range of systems of records and third-party cloud services.”[1]

 “Progress has always been known for providing the technology to develop and deploy mission-critical business applications. Today those applications are multi-channel and multi-device,” said Yogesh Gupta, CEO, Progress. “We are thrilled that Gartner has recognized our technologies for leadership. We are committed to helping customers create the applications of today and tomorrow. We are continuing to invest heavily in our frontend and backend technologies to deliver the best MADP platform in the market.”

The Progress MADP portfolio is also highly rated on Gartner Peer Insights – a source of verified user ratings and peer reviews by end-users, customers and partners. Progress reviews include:

Kendo UI is the tool our developers like to use,” Manager Business Intelligence in the Finance Industry. Read full review

Enabled the ability to write native applications in 1 single codebase using JavaScript. We have been able to quickly develop cross-platform mobile applications using a single codebase.
