Now that the initial GDPR deadline has passed, what are companies doing to ensure that they have the steps in place to operationalize compliance?
Magnitude was founded on a base of strong ERP knowledge (Noetix), acquired more (Datalytics Technologies), and has recently been accelerating investment in the SAP ecosystem (SourceConnect product) and the purchase of Innowera and Every Angle. With that in mind, I finally got around to reading the Gartner report 2018 Strategic Roadmap for Postmodern ERP by […]
I’ve worked with the Kalido heritage products since the late nineties. Sometimes I’m asked how being part of Magnitude has helped our products like Magnitude DIW and Magnitude MDM.
