ProgressĀ®, a leading provider of application development and digital experience technologies, has unveiled the latest release of its flagship platform, OpenEdge 12.8. This exciting update empowers developers to build robust, more secure business applications while optimizing performance, leveraging cutting-edge features like incremental build support, OpenTelemetry integration, and dynamic data masking.

Here are some of the exciting features and enhancements that OpenEdge 12.8 brings to the table.

1. Developer Productivity:

  • Enhanced Observability: OpenEdge 12.8 integrates OpenTelemetry, providing developers with operational metrics and deep insights into application performance. This enables better management of applications and identification of code bottlenecks for optimized performance.
  • Incremental Build Support: Developers can now enjoy faster turn-around times on builds with incremental build support. By rebuilding only the affected parts of the codebase, development cycles are accelerated, fostering innovation and agility.

2. Integration and Management:

  • Real-Time Messaging and Streaming: Integration with Apache Kafka allows businesses to leverage event streaming and data integration for real-time data feeds, enhancing the capabilities of their applications.
  • OpenEdge Command Center (OECC): A state-of-the-art, cloud-ready tool and APIs that simplify managing OpenEdge applications. OECC provides centralized monitoring, administration and diagnostics, integrating popular Application Performance Management (APM) tools that are likely already in your environment.
  • Database online maintenance: This release includes various database improvements that enable more administrative tasks to be performed online, eliminating the need for downtime for offline maintenance operations. It also offers a variety of performance improvements, especially in the areas of database scan/repair and backup/restore.

3. Application and Data Protections:

  • Dynamic Data Masking (DDM): OpenEdge 12.8 introduces DDM, enabling easier compliance with data privacy regulations like GDPR or HIPAA. Sensitive data can be disguised at runtime based on user role permissions, ensuring data integrity and privacy.
  • Hardware Security Module (HSM) Support: With support for HSMs, cryptographic operations are performed in a more secure environment, safeguarding sensitive data and meeting stringent security standards.
  • Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.3 Support: OpenEdge 12.8 adopts OpenSSL 3.1, enhancing security protocols and cryptographic algorithms to promote robust encryption and data integrity for your applications.

OpenEdge is the leading platform for developing enterprise applications needing high performance, high availability and flexible deployment options for extensibility, scalability, security and reliability. Developers around the world are using the OpenEdge application development platform to build innovative business applications that are the backbone of healthcare, financial services, manufacturing and other industries.

Kingslake,a partner of Progress software, is committed to empowering businesses with innovative solutions like OpenEdge 12.8, enabling them to thrive in today’s competitive landscape.
