According to an agenda for upcoming Sage Partner Kickoff meetings being held on October 27-28, 2020 Sage is readying a partner-hosted Azure offering for Sage 100 and Sage 300.
We’ve been hearing rumors of some type of offering which creates another option for Sage 100cloud users who are unsure of how to move their accounting system to the cloud.
Cloud hosting for Sage 100 has been available for quite some time so Sage’s offering is likely more of a marketing campaign to make existing customers aware of the capability to run Sage 100cloud on hosted platforms.
Sage is also emailing customers about free Azure Active Directory Premium licenses. These licenses appear to offer a way for Sage 100cloud users to connect to the Sage Contact offering which connects Office 365 contacts to Sage 100cloud. The licenses may also provide a way to utilize an upcoming Sage 100cloud Open API Builder recently demonstrated on YouTube.
We will have more information about Sage 100cloud Azure hosting options once Sage formally unveils this program. There will likely be an additional fee for this hosting although it’s unknown whether this might be billed along with the Sage 100cloud subscription or separately by the hosting partner.
