OF-1: Multi-UI/UX Low-Code Development Platform for OpenEdge
OF-1 is a low-code development platform for OpenEdge that enables to create local enterprise level systems in .NET, SaaS applications and Web applications in HTML5 from only one single ABL source code!
The Tools4Progress (PCase, Skin-Client, Viper) are created for Progress OpenEdge.
These tools extend the abilities of OpenEdge in a practical way:
Building screens is easy with the integrated screen designer.
Everyone from trainee up to high professional can work in a project together.
OF-1 is integrated into the OpenEdge Studio. It comes with a rich set of tools, including a visual designer, the graphical case tool PCase (to maintain ERDs and Business Entities), a wide selection of functional and visual components (including Telerik Controls) and much more.
Screens (similar to program) and sub-screens (flexible container with the ability to snap in dynamically into a screen) will be drawn in the designer.
Less code means saving time. The power of OO ABL, multiple Controls, multi UI/UX with web and on premise leads to great resulting applications.
OF-1 is mature, since 2012 it is optimized to eliminate repetitive tasks. In most projects 50-60% of all screens need no programming, 20-30% have max 300 lines ABL code and only 10-20% have more lines.
All screens run in .NET or HTML5, with or without AppServer. Customization of .NET and HTML5 UI screens is made with a single ABL code. To help the experienced OpenEdge developer, the API has calls/attributes similar to standard...
Proven strategies for application modernization (from Character, Standard Progress Client/Server, ADMx, DWP, Dynamics…) are ready to use.
The wish for modernization an application could be triggered from sales, customer demand, technology changes or is market driven. Often applications looks old, sales says: 'We could not sell anymore'. Or – Today's #1 – 'we need a Web / SaaS solution'. Proven OF-1 strategies are available to accomplish this.
Becoming more familiar with OF-1 (demos, workshops, PoC, training...) helps to make the right choice and finally the customer is able to work independently.
IAP is a premier OpenEdge service and consulting company in Europe with a staff of 40+ people. There are several OF-1 training and support options.
How much training, coaching or support a customer needs, is very different from project to project. The place to be held could be here in Hamburg (Germany) or in the customers office. Usually in the first year some coaching and some support is very recommended.
These live demos will demonstrate the incredible ability of OF-1 to use various UIs.
There is no better way to enable OpenEdge programs for SaaS on the web!
