Cougar Mountain Announces New Denali Family of Products

Denali by Cougar Mountain to Give Businesses Affordable, Scalable Accounting

BOISE, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/22/05 -- Organizations seeking powerful accounting software that will grow with their company will soon find an answer from Cougar Mountain Software. Cougar Mountain today announced the launch of Denali by Cougar Mountain(TM), a powerful new family of accounting products based on the latest 32-bit .NET and SQL technology from Microsoft®. Denali by Cougar Mountain was designed to accommodate an organization's growth of users, locations and data volumes at an affordable price.

Cougar Mountain Software currently publishes accounting, point of sale and fund accounting software. The first Denali family products will begin shipping in late July 2005.

According to Jim Stone, Chief Operating Officer of the software publishing company, "This new family of products provides the features of the high-end accounting programs at a very reasonable price. Our intention is to provide information that allows organizations to make knowledgeable, actionable decisions. The product allows organizations to tailor functionality while following generally accepted accounting practices."

Denali Point of Sale is unique in being truly integrated with back office accounting. The product's integration to Denali Inventory means retailers have instant access to up-to-date inventory information -- both at the POS register and at the order entry station in the back office. Denali can be deployed in a multi-location environment and scaled to a large number of users. Such scalability means the products will meet the requirements of growing businesses for many years. Denali provides virtually unlimited transaction volumes, plus the excellent multilevel security that is a hallmark of Cougar Mountain products.

Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management.

Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked ...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
When you're operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential.

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
