Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters


It appears that several of Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS) Solomon's truly differentiating traits, which could not have been easily or quickly replicated by its seemingly more robust brethren products within the MBS division, will have been a good enough reason for Microsoft to continue to bolster the product rather than to consider any other less popular options (e.g., stabilization and replacement) to offer to Solomon's loyal customer base and resellers, some of which will have even feared the possibility.

Progress Acquires Telerik for Mobile and UI Capabilities


Progress recently agreed to acquire privately held Telerik AD, a Bulgarian provider of application development tools. According to TEC's P.J.

Microsoft Lays Enforced-Concrete Foundation For Its Business Solutions Part 4: User Recommendations


Despite the plausible product roadmap, any organization evaluating MBS products should keep itself informed, and consider existing functionality only. MBS, at this stage, will likely not appeal to companies that need more complex CRM capabilities or must manage customer relationships through diverse lines of business (LOBs).
