The Sage Extended Solutions for MAS 90 and MAS 200 web site has just been updated.
The new site is a bit vague on the availability of the Extended Solutions listed.
Our understanding from speaking to partners who’ve attended Sage briefings is that as of version 4.4 (expected Q1 2010) Sage will not be selling Extended Solutions. They will however continue to support existing Extended Solutions for a period of time.
As noted previously, we understand that approximately 56 of the Extended Solutions (link to list of solutions is below) will be incorporated at some point (schedule TBD) to version 4.4 (and higher) of the Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 product.
In addition the following 25 Extended Solutions are not shown on the new site and will be rendered obsolete by the release of Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 version 4.4 and are expected to be retired.
Although there’s been no formal announcement, Sage have indicated in various partner meetings that the following Extended Solutions will be incorporated to the main product after version 4.4 has been released (Warning: Subject to change):
March 2010: SO1096, PR1018, JC1046, AR1200, SO1271, AR1027, SO1035
June 2010: BR1005, BR1004
September 2010: SO1173, AP1043, AP1101, SO1354
For now we only know that 56 solutions are being added into MAS 90 and MAS 200 4.4+. Except as noted above we don’t know when they will be added or how long it will take to add them all into the product.
