What is Akera

 

While the traditional ‘speed script’ applications down to Progress version 9.1A, using both procedural and object oriented development, are supported out of the box, the real power can be unleashed from complete integration with the node.js platform that makes it perfect for developing and deploying web/mobile applications while (re)using the power of Progress ABL for the business logic.

With more than 150k packages available in NPM repository the server-side business logic of your Progress application can be augmented with lots of useful functionality like push notification or web-sockets to only name a few available.
