Sage has introduced Sage 200 v. 2013, an online version of a major product in the market in the United Kingdom. The official announcement described the system as available both in the cloud and on premise with flexible payment options. The latter is the obvious ability to pay up front or via subscription payments.
The system is designed for up to 50 users in companies with five to 250 employees. Since the system is hosted on the Microsoft Azure platform in Microsoft data centers, I’m guessing this a single-tenant product that would not be labeled as true cloud by some competitors although the issue is not addressed in the press release or in product details available on the Sage website. Sage said 40 resellers are already on board to sell the product.
