It has been somewhat difficult to keep up with posts lately. I have been incredibly busy with work and one of the products I was working on just went into beta and I am now working on some other engagements up to the holidays. Reflecting back I am pretty excited where the business is considering the current economic climate. It looks as if 2009’s prospects are very good as well kicking off with an early January trip back to the UK. I am very privileged to be in the position I am in today.
Over the last 8 Months I have actively engaged with more the 13 business partners, offering services spanning SalesLogix LAN and Web development to custom application development to training. These customers are located in the US, Canada, UK and Germany. Each have been a treat to work with and it has been my pleasure to offer assistance when asked.
I want to give a special call out to the Sage for their support over the last year, and more directly to Mimi, Jeff, Paul, John, Bill and Del Mar, and Dave too :). These people are great to work with and very good at what they do and I am glad that they are working on the SalesLogix Development Team and driving the ship forward.
I also want to thank Ryan and David at CustomerFx, Brian Seagers at Propellix, Mike Spragg at empath-e, Johnathan and Nick at Pythagoras, Tony at eyeQ CRM. Over the last year I have had many conversations with these individuals and have done some work, and each is professional and very capable and I would highly recommend their work to anyone who asks.
I am glad to announce the CustomerFx is offering some development training on the 7.5 Web Client. I have always like Ryan’s style and approach to explaining things out and I expect this training to be a great investment for any BP trying to get their developers up to speed on the Web. I also recommend heading over to the Sage University site and signing up to the developer video subscriptions. Jason Huber walks through concepts from start to finish and as I understand it the catalog gets updated quite frequently.
Over the next month the BITtelligent web site will be getting an updated look to represent a more professional style. The initial site was literally thrown together in 6 hours to get some presence. Our new Logo and page layout were provided by Paul Middlehurst, He is an excellent Graphics Designer and If you have any design work that you need done, you will not be disappointed.
The new Logo is …
I want to leave this post with these thoughts …
A developer took a reference application build by Microsoft and created a million dollar business and community on it. With hard work and adding the right mix of features DotNetNuke was born, and now is a thriving community. The initial code base was nothing compared to the infrastructure provided by SalesLogix web. Given that we now have the technology to build on and a community behind it, should we not have products and add-on’s to support our collective interests. Now is the time to start building on top of the web client and make SalesLogix and even more compelling story to our customers.
