In a blog post on his site yesterday, Doug Deane President DSD Business Systems describes a recent visit that two of his top technical people made to Sage North America headquarters where they received an early look at the MAS200 SQL 4.45 release.
The session apparently afforded an opportunity to grill Sage development staff about the capabilities in MAS 200 SQL 4.45 and Jon Reiter (pictured below) and Jim Woodhead, both of DSD Business Systems, came away suitably impressed.
According to Doug’s post a small group of channel partners were invited to spend time with Sage in Irvine to provide feedback on the MAS 200 SQL 4.4 product prior to it’s release.
Some of Doug’s comments:
Very large datasets were tested quickly on external custom Crystal Reports
BIE (Business Insights Explorer) was fast
Because there are no SQL Server stored procedures a single code base will be maintained which allows for smoother integration with and support by third party products.
