Look into the Future - Sage Summit 2012

Sage Summit 2012 has wrapped up and everyone has gone home. There were lots to see and new features and functions being announced. One of the big buzzwords that were going around at Summit was Cloud Hybrid. What is Cloud Hybrid? It is an integration with Windows Azure. Windows Azure allows for sage to link on premise data with in the cloud data and provide a common interface to other applications across all their product lines. This shows in a video that Sage did called "Business. Anywhere. Anytime. Made possible by Sage." What they are showing is a iPad interface to a sage product going through Windows Azure. While at Summit, I got a chance to play with an iPad that had this running on it. It was neat to be able to access my real time data. 

MAS has encountered a problem

Don't you just love it when you get a generic error message saying your system encountered a problem and needs to close. We recently ran into such an error. The image below is what it looked like. It would appear a few seconds after logging into Sage 100.

MAS Encountered a problem and needs to close

At least they were polite and told us that they were sorry for the inconvenience but it would have been nice if they would have told me why the error happened. This error would show every time the user would log into Sage 100. The user would click close and continue to work in the system without any noticeable issues.

This all happened after installing a service update for version 4.4. It was hard to troubleshoot the since there were no errors in the log stating that this happened or why it happened. No error number or debug information.
