  1. Session 103 Application Modernization A SaaS Perspective Phillip Magnay Senior Principal Architect, Progress Software

  2. Application Modernization Do You Need to Modernize your Application for… • More Compelling User Interfaces? • Easier, More Robust Integration? • Greater Flexibility & Easier Maintenance? • Remote, Disconnected Access? • Cost-Effective Deployment & Management?

  3. OpenEdge Reference Architecture Best Practice Approach to Building Applications using the OpenEdge Platform Enterprise Services Common Infrastructure Presentation Business Components Security & Compliance Personalization& Customization Integration Tenant Management Data Access Data Sources OpenEdge Application Platform

  4. 7 Keys To Success User Interface Flexibility Being able to easily use the UI technologies that meet the needs of the customer Provide a highly productive environment focused on OpenEdge and industry best practices Productivity OperationalExcellence Always available and scales to any size Ensuring that data and applications are accessed only by those who need to know Security & Compliance Going from 1 to N Multi-tenancy Ability to easily integrate to any other application by supporting all relevant standards Integration Ensuring the application looks as the tenant and end-user want Personalization

  5. Legacy Application Architecture Client Tools & Utilities User Interface Business Logic Integration Logic Data Access Data Source Application Data

  17. SaaS Modernization Accelerators • OpenEdge ABL • Object Orientation • ProDatasets • OpenEdge Architect • Model-Driven Software Development • Enterprise Architect UML Plugin to OpenEdge Architect IDE • 100% of Components modeled in UML, ABL code generation • Standardized Architecture & Components • CloudPoint Framework available via Progress Professional Services

  18. Modernization Lessons Learned • Planning & Process • Iterative, Pilot Cycles, Systematize • Modernization Tools • YMMV, Never 100% • Development Environment & Infrastructure • Get architecture & standards well-defined • Bed down & test, test, test • Teams • Spend the time to enable, select aggressive players • Quality • Test, review, & test again • Don’t let ‘Perfect’ be the enemy of ‘Great’
