JCB - Progress OpenEdge Version Upgrade

The JCB dealer system Propel inherited ran on old unsupported servers and a 15-year-old version of Progress OpenEdge. Propel recommended that the servers needed to be upgraded and the Progress OpenEdge version running the system should also be brought up to date.

Due to the 24/7 nature of the system, a careful upgrade plan was defined. In collaboration with JCB's infrastructure team, Propel and the various other stakeholders managed the move of the system and upgrade to the latest version of Progress OpenEdge.

The project realised a number of benefits including increasing the stability and workload capacity of the system. Call-outs for the system were significantly reduced and we were also able to implement the latest Appserver technology to increase the general system performance.
