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.
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.”

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.
