A lot of organisations running Agresso Business World are probably aware that Milestone 5 is available. And a certain number will be thinking about upgrading to M5 for either the benefit of new functionality or bug fixes.

It’s useful to be aware in the early stages of planning that Milestone 5 does not support Windows 2008 and 2008 R2 Server, nor does it support SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2.

For new installations this isn’t really an issue as by default most organisations are rolling out new systems are running Windows 2012 R2 Server and SQL Server 2012 / 2014. But for existing customers who may be planning to use their existing test and live environments that are 2008 based a bit more consideration will be required
