A salesman comes to you and says, ‘I have a client that is really excited about using ClearOS and getting rid of their over-complex environment.’ Well maybe not this excited, but you get the point.
You start to ask the technical questions and you find out that they are running Quickbooks Enterprise 10 (QBE10) in their environment. As the engineer you start to think of all the creative ways you can get this done, virtualization, running the DB engine from a workstation that stays on, keeping their old Windows Server around … But for this client, none of them fit the bill as nicely as an integrated solution.
That integration barrier is coming down here at ClearCenter. We have completed phase one of Quickbooks Enterprise 10 integration with ClearOS 5.2. This first phase consists of command line instruction through the ClearFoundation and support of QBE10 through ClearCare. Subsequent phases will include the addition of QBE Server 10 as a module in Webconfig and integrated configuration of the QBE service through its own database screen.
