Not ageist at all but...
...was there any reason for headlining Berruyer's unremarkable age ? And then opening the article with his equally humdrum 17 years of service ? Just askin'
Seventeen-year company veteran and CEO Guy Berruyer has signalled his intent to hang up his boots from the end of March next year or sooner if a replacement in found beforehand. The man went public on his exit plan at the half-way point of the accountancy software developer's fiscal '14 numbers, that showed a near five per …
Database? It's bloody text files for most people. The MSSQL version is horrifically expensive for small firms.
Shit system and I'm looking forward to binning it soon along with ACT. I have wasted so much time trying to fix concurrent access to Line 50 (?), invariably disabling virus scanning on its files.
UK accounting software outfit Sage today said it had agreed to acquire the remaining stake in Brightpearl, providers of cloud-based retail software, for $299m (£225m).
Sage already owns 17 per cent of the e-commerce software specialist but is set to acquire the remaining 83 per cent, funded from Sage's existing cash and available liquidity.
Sage claimed the move will bring growth by targeting mid-sized businesses. It hopes the combination of Sage's cloud-based accounting software Intacct and Brightpearl will be taken up by retailers and wholesalers looking for an integrated approach to financial management, inventory planning, sales order management, purchasing and supplier management, CRM, fulfilment, warehousing, and logistics management.
UK tabletop wargames specialist Games Workshop has published the latest chapter in the long-running saga of how mighty IT warriors valiantly battled the intransigent forces of ERP.
Admins of on-premises Sage X3 ERP deployments should check they're not exposing the enterprise resource planning suite to the public internet in case they fall victim to an unauthenticated command execution vulnerability.
And said administrators should have installed by now the latest patches for the software, which address a bunch of bugs earlier discovered and reported by Rapid7. The infosec outfit described in detail the flaws, calling them "protocol-related issues involving remote administration of Sage X3."
The aforementioned command execution vulnerability (CVE-2020-7388) scores a perfect ten out of ten in CVSS severity. Hence, protect and patch: miscreants have everything they need now to exploit the bugs.
Games Workshop, the fantasy model maker and table-top wargames retailer, has ingested a dose of reality as it delays its high-risk ERP project and appoints a new integrator.
"We have made some good progress on implementing our European ERP system and we are working with a new partner to help achieve the completion of this long and complex project," it said.
