Open Systems Announces Successful Partnership with Argus Hosting


(MINNEAPOLIS, MN – September 3, 2013) Open Systems, Inc., a leading provider of business accounting, CRM, and ERP software, announced a new partnership with Argus Hosting, providers of online hosting and cloud services for ERP users.


“Our partnership with Argus provides turnkey TRAVERSE hosting for our clients most concerned with connectivity and security,” said Linda Shillingburg, Open Systems’ Vice-President of Channel Development. “Though the agreement was only signed recently, we already have successful implementations of TRAVERSE through Argus hosting, and our clients couldn’t be happier!”


Argus hosting provides TRAVERSE ERP users with several advantages, including Hosted Virtual Desktops, automatic offsite data backup, applied TRAVERSE software updates, and full scalability to fit a variety of business sizes and user counts.


Elton Wilmot, an I.T. professional for Ability with Innovation, contracted Argus to move AWI’s TRAVERSE installation to a web-hosted environment recently. His assessment of Argus’s service was clear:  “No performance issues, no downtime, no access issues. None,” says Wilmot. “My TRAVERSE server is managed, supported and monitored—proactively. I can focus on other parts of the business that need support and improvement.”

The unintended consequences of forced BYOD | Consumerization Of It – InfoWorld


When personal equipment is required to handle business data and processes, say good-bye to traditional notions of corporate power


I suppose a very authoritarian company — they do exist — could get away with making employees pay out of pocket for a specific device and subject it to complete IT control so that no personal apps or data could be used on it. This is akin to not only buying your uniform from only this supplier, but also ensuring it is kept clean and pressed. But that kind of company will have problems keeping workers not otherwise desperate for a job or utterly lacking in self-respect. If a company wants that level of control, it needs to at least buy the equipment in question.  Read more.
