  Progress Empowers Customers and Partners with New Community Forum

     New Infrastructure Makes Timely, Expert Content Instantly Available

Progress Exchange 2013

Business Wire

BEDFORD, Mass. -- October 8, 2013

Progress (NASDAQ:PRGS) today unveiled at its Exchange 2013 user conference a
new, open community forum designed to enable developers to access and share
timely, expert and relevant technical and business content. “The Community”
will be an online hub where developers, independent software vendors and
business managers can collaborate as they create, and customize business
applications with leading technologies, including the Progress^® Pacific™
platform-as-a-service (PaaS).

As businesses of all sizes address unprecedented market pressures to develop
applications quickly and at low cost, developers and other technical
professionals seek online forums to quickly solve problems and share best
practices as well as tips and tricks.

The Community will introduce an open source way of thinking(transparent and
authentic) and allow Progress users, customers and partners to exchange
questions and access relevant information instantly. For those looking to
develop an application quickly, The Community will house drag and drop short
cuts as well as solutions posted by other users.

The new community will continue to provide the same level of high-quality
content as Progress’ previous forum, but with additional features.

  *An open platform available to both Pacific users and non-users after a
    one-time registration
  *An event calendar with updates on Webinars, white papers, useful product
    information, and monthly Q&A
  *Automatic reenrollment for previous members into the new community
  *Job-posting corner where businesses can post opportunities within their
    organizations

Executive Quote:

Karen Tegan Padir, chief technology officer at Progress said: “This initiative
is our promise to provide the Progress community with expert, and authentic
content – building on the best of what we’ve seen in the highly successful
Open Source environment. We know that tools don’t build communities, people do
and we believe this open platform for technical dialogue and problem solving
will help members create better applications faster.”
