Another Solomon co-founder, Vern Strong, is CEO of the cloud unit. In its official statement the company says, "The name change better reflects their mission and the relationship between their affiliated companies and product brands." As the product has not been called Solomon for a long time that is intriguing. The website says Solomon will continue to develop applications for Dynamics and expand its focus on cloud development "to include other software and services in the broader ERP market." I am trying to figure out how picking the name associated with one product does that.The re-branded company, which also develops for Dynamics AX, is owned by Gary Harpst, Jack Ridge, and Vern Strong, who founded Solomon Software. To recite the genealogy, Solomon was purchased by Great Plains Software early in 2000. Microsoft, which announced the deal late in 2000, purchased Great Plains early in 2001.Last modified on Friday, 05 June 2015

Plumbline Solutions, developer of Dynamics SL, has turned to the past to rename itself. The company has become Solomon Cloud Solutions, still based in Findlay, Ohio, home of the former Solomon Software. So let's just get the issue out in public—what does this mean for the future ownership of the product currently known as Dynamics SL and owned by Microsoft? Solomon co-founder, Gary Harpst, who is serving as chairman of the renamed company says the renaming does not reflect on any looming change in ownership. In response to the question, Harpst said the name change is because "When there are major platform/market transitions opportunity abounds. We are moving aggressively across our family of businesses to leverage this transition."
