Getting Started with Sage Cloud Connector

Written by Todd Martin on .

With all the buzz (and confusion) surrounding "the cloud", it can be hard deciding whether or not it makes sense for your business. But with Sage 100 ERP and the Sage Cloud Connector, you don't have to choose because you get the best of both worlds - flexibility of the cloud combined with the stability of your on-premises software. Let's take a closer look at this important new technology.

How Does it Work?

The Sage Cloud Connector works as the buffer (or bridge) between your on-premises Sage 100 ERP software and the cloud - connecting you to a whole new world of web-based add-on applications without having to purchase, install, and configure web servers or special hardware in-house.

You've probably heard about the new Sage web and mobile applications that are available in the cloud like Sage Inventory Advisor, Sage Mobile Sales, Sage Mobile Service, and many others. Sage Cloud Connector is the technology that allows the data and transactions to flow freely between your on-premises accounting system and these cloud applications. That means there's no duplicate data entry or import/export routines - it all flows seamlessly between your office and the cloud.

Should you trust your data to someone else?

Written by Todd Martin on .

I found an article today about Carbonite, an online backup service, that is suing their supplier, Promise, due to a product that they bought that didn't work. Too bad this supplier wasn't for a door that was not closing properly. Instead they were the supplier for a RAID system that would guaranteethat the backups they have would be available in case of failure. The company (Carbonite) lost 7,500 customers data when drives did fail. I would not want to be one of those customers trusting an outside source to manage my data.
