Progress Releases Kendo UI Builder
September 22, 2016

Progress announced the release of Kendo UI Builder by Progress, a responsive web UI tool that enables Progress OpenEdge application partners and customers to leverage industry-leading technologies to rapidly and cost-effectively create exceptional future-proof web application experiences.

The Kendo UI Builder by Progress tool is based on the Kendo UI framework, and takes this framework to the world of business critical applications, blending the essential foundation that the OpenEdge application development platform delivers, with the engagement paramount to driving digital transformation.

This easy-to-use, cost-effective tool minimizes development effort, provides the foundation to improve UI as trends and technology evolve, and most importantly, delivers highly competitive applications for competitive advantage.

- Future-proof business applications: Progress OpenEdge application partners and customers can now quickly develop data-driven views from out-of-the box templates available in the Kendo UI Designer tool. The meta-data-driven UIs help "future-proof" OpenEdge applications, making it easier to adjust the application on the fly, to stay current with the latest technology trends.

- Accelerated app modernization: The Kendo UI Builder tool also extends existing skills for Advanced Business Logic (ABL) developers with open standards-based technology, enabling them to leverage JavaScript framework (Angular 1.5) based code. It auto-generates 80 percent of UI code and provides UI component templates that define the views for rapid time-to-market, and utilizes REST and JSDO as data sources for data-driven UI.

- Faster time-to-market: With the Kendo UI Builder tool, Progress OpenEdge application partners and customers can minimize development efforts in creating and delivering elegant, easily navigable web applications for personalized interaction with browsers and tablets, with ready-to-use themes and a sample app library of 70+ HTML5 UIs.

"While web interfaces are not new, historically, our customers have focused on the power, reliability and lower total cost of ownership that the OpenEdge platform is known for. With the evolution of digital business, an elegant end user experience is no longer a nice to have, but a requirement," said Colleen Smith, VP and GM for Progress OpenEdge, Progress. "With the release of Kendo UI Builder by Progress, OpenEdge application partners and customers can now quickly and cost effectively create exceptional web interfaces, without modifying the backend, carrying their applications well into the future."

The Kendo UI Builder by Progress product is available today.
