We attended Sage Summit 1027 at the Excel on London last week with Kieran and Javier. This is the annual global Sage event where they share their products and development plans with resellers and customers.
The current product sets are very mush on premise and include Sage 50, Sage 200, Sage 1000 and Sage X3 in the UK. The landscape is changing with the explosion in online solutions such as Xero so Sage are now very much focussed on this area too with their Sage One and Sage Live offerings.
Sage One is a completely new web based product aimed at 1 - 9 users and has a basic set of functions with more promised over the next few years. This is a global product and has a large user base in US, Canada, Ireland and UK. It has RestFul APIs which need to mature! Having said that we now have a Mobile2Sage One integration tool set which will allow FM solutions to integrate to Sage One (which some say offers more functionality than Xero).
Sage Live is also a new offering and is a collaboration with SalesForce. It is offered via the Amazon marketplace and is aimed at 10 - 49 users. It has RestFul APIs and we are monitoring the marketplace to see if it is commercially viable for us to create a Mobile2Sage Live integration tool set.
I hope the above is of interest, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Thanks and regards
