On Sunday, May 26, 2019 our friend, colleague and colleague Miodrag Popovic “Bata” has passed away. We will remember him as an incredibly intelligent and witty man, a good colleague and great expert. Bata was able to get into the problem, develop a solution, perform testing and finish the calculation of employee salaries of our clients on time and within the deadline. At this moment, we are all deeply affected and we can only add that we will miss him a lot.
Another ERP summit has ended (erpsusreti.rs). This year our host was hotel “Fontana” in Vrnjačka Banja, and from May 23 to 25 we were socializing, exchanging experiences and enjoying the natural beauties of this part of Serbia. We gathered between 150 and 160 participants from 50 companies, and the share of users of the UPIS ERP solution was higher than at the previous gatherings, which is especially pleasing to us. Next year IIB will be celebrating 30 years of existence, we plan a big summit and hope that the number of participants will climb to 200. Some would say that this is an ambitious goal, but when people come once, they are often returning, so we think that our aim is not unrealistic at all.
One more DATUM conference has ended, and this year the it was held from April 16 to 17 at “Crowne Plaza” hotel. DATUM (DAni Tehnološkog UMeća) are conferences of professional and educational character in the field of information and communication technologies, where participants can get acquainted with the latest solutions in the field of system integration and data centers as well as business software (ERP, CRM, DMS, BI ).
The BIZIT 2018 conference, which took place on November 7 and 8 in the “Club of Deputies” in Belgrade, has gathered and has gathered over 500 participants. Like previous years, IIB was a sponsor, we had our exhibit space where you could meet us, exchange experiences and enjoy the tradition, the best chocolate bars, at the conference! Excellent organization, interesting speakers and, above all, a great atmosphere for which we are looking forward to some future gatherings organized by our partners from PC Press.
We would like to inform you that members of IIB successfully compiled and performed go-live stage of two new babies: Aleksa and Sava. After a long period of testing (Nenad and Miroslav love to test code, and who would blame them for this?) compilation passed without any errors. There were, however, a few warnings from the operating systems (“Buy me Plasma cookies”, “I want to eat cherries”, etc.), but since both successful programmers they have easily overcome these challenges. Customer support period follows and many sleepless nights. Intensive support will last at least for a year.
In the October issue of the “PC Press” magazine, our article on the implementation of the UPIS ERP solution in agricultural enterprises was published. Here you can get acquainted with most of the features that UPIS supports when it comes to buying, cooperating and other specific functionalities that are important in related field. This text is also the first announcement of our lecture, which Miloš Bošnjak will hold at the BizIT 2018 conference, and we invite you to join and meet us on November 8 and 9 this year in the “Club of Deputies” (www.bizit.rs).
