8 Reasons to Upgrade to Sage X3 Version 12

The latest version of Sage X3 offers new enhancements, capabilities and services to grow your business.


What’s new?

Open architecture 
Sage X3 Version 12 offers a scalable, performant API framework using the open-source technology GraphQL. This query language enables powerful developer tools, so your ecosystem can quickly develop and deliver new capabilities that fit your needs.

GraphQL, what do you need to know?
GraphQL was created by Facebook engineers who set out to define a way to request all the data needed to render a screen in one shot. The result was a new query language and specification called GraphQL. It lets apps – like the ones on your phone or your web browser – ask for exactly the data they need and receive it all in a single request, so things like your news feed show up fast.
Facebook open-sourced GraphQL in 2015, and the GraphQL ecosystem has exploded in innovation and found many uses throughout the industry.

End of maintenance for versions 5-9
Sage X3 Version 9 and below will come to the end of their lifeline support at the end of June 2021.
