Skyward's Powerful Database
Just as in education, a solid foundation for
your school management system is essential.
That’s why Skyward uses Progress OpenEdge as its relational database in our software application.
Used in over 90% of Fortune 500 companies, OpenEdge is an industry-leader in embedded databases. In a recent IDC study, OpenEdge was rated the #1 pure-play embedded database on the market.
Why Progress? With OpenEdge, Progress focuses on partnership solutions with independent software vendors (ISVs) like Skyward. This provides end users with a more powerful, scalable, and secure environment without any disconnect between the software application development and database engine.
What are the experts saying? An Aberdeen Groups & InfoStructure Association noted OpenEdge database from Progress as an industry-leader identifying its administrative cost as 74% less than Oracle and 37% less than Microsoft.
Skyward databases support open standards such as ODBC (open database connectivity) and JDBC (JAVA database connectivity). Using ODBC and JDBC, programmers or database administrators can query and update tables and fields using SQL (structured query language). If your experience is in .Net or JAVA, you may utilize these tools as well to create custom interfaces with in-house systems.
