We recently wrapped up a wonderful week of networking and education at Acumatica Summit in sunny San Diego. What a fantastic event! Last year when I attended my first Summit I felt like I was drinking from a fire hose. We were introducing ourselves to a new community of software development partners, getting familiar with the product interface and meeting so many new people. This year, I was much more relaxed and really felt like I could enjoy the community of Acumatica Partners and the class sessions.
The keynotes shared a wealth of information about the direction cloud deployment is going and leading the pack in many ways is Acumatica ERP. John Roskill discussed moving to the multi-cloud environment and the importance of having a business system like Acumatica which takes advantage of the multi-cloud world. Here is a copy of a side John presented in his presentation which shows the multi-cloud products Acumatica integrates with today.
Acumatica’s early and ongoing investment in web services and REST API endpoints has allowed our application and customers to work in the multi- cloud world. This is very cool technology and is available in the application today. We had two development partners, Infinity HR and DocuSign both demonstrate how they are able to integrate their applications using the API endpoints.
This is just one example of the many exciting advancements Acumatica customers will be able to take advantage of in the near future. Acumatica announced the release of version 6.1 at the conference also. This version includes many features customers have been asking for like, the ability to change the sales order customers, approvals for expense receipts, enhanced warehouse shipper addresses, and increased integration with Power BI.
It is so fun to be involved with a true technology company like Acumatica. I look forward to a successful year and next year’s conference in Nashville Tennessee January 28-31, 2018.
