How important is it to have a security plan as part of a major project?


How often have you been on a project, where security was deemed to be important but someone will say “We’ll get to it later”? Typically, those efforts, while eventually attaining some levels of success, have challenges in the ongoing maintenance and ability to make wide reaching changes.

Bill Rehm, ATS - Database Lead

In the next 12 months, several versions of Oracle and SQL Server databases will stop being supported or will require additional fees to continue receiving support.

Are the "software police" going to come break down your door and fine you if you pass that date? Well, probably not. Will your database vendor refuse to support you if you’re not paid up? Almost certainly.

Updating and Saving Historical Costs

Dan Schultheis, Sr Manager - Enterprise Consulting

Oh, the Holidays, I love this time of year…way too much food, fun stuff to do, get your tree, string the lights, roll your costs…wait what?

With all of the fun that happens at the end of the year, here is a nice tip to store your historical cost in the F4105 table.

Prior to the updating of costs for 2018, it is nice to be able to save the current cost in the same table and as luck would have it, the years are all falling into the ‘user reserved’ zone at least for the next 82 years.

Simple enough to add a new cost method that can just store the cost for as long as you want to save it.
