chris_g_customizationI have been spending a great deal more time ‘on the road’ in recent months due to the change in my position in July at K3 Syspro. As well as crossing England’s infamous North/South divide on a weekly basis, I have also come into contact with some very high-level customizations both within and outside of the SYSPRO system - some good, some bad.  This has lead me to ponder how best to connect all of these technologies to work in the most effective way.  The technologies I’ve come into contact with on my travels can be summarized as follows:

Posted on 20 November 2012 by Chris Grunwell

Three syllables which currently polarize opinion wherever you look and whoever you talk to: Windows 8.

I won’t bore you with yet another opinion on whether Windows 8 is going to make or break Microsoft, whether the versions on sale are going to confuse consumers or whether Apple is going to become the all-conquering tech giant off the back of this.
