HOS Newsletter – January 2024

Jan 31, 2024 | Confluence, Jira

A Snap-Shot of Things You Need to Know

Attention: Users and Administrators: Between the hundreds of “informational” emails you receive each month only about HALF are relevant and only a FEW are important.

HOS’s solution to this deluge is simple:

  • We scan thru the dozens of articles that hit our inboxes each week
  • We consolidate article topics into a list of those applications only YOU have installed
  • We summarize the article so you don’t have to read the whole thing if you don’t want to
  • We highlight those that you might find useful for the CURRENT problems you’re facing

SUBSCRIBE to this One Newsletter today and you can UNSUBSCRIBE from all the rest.

Tempo Updating it’s Pricing in 2024

Effective January 3rd, 2024 ALL of Tempo’s Apps (add-ons) prices are increasing.

  • Data Center app prices will see an average increase of about 15%.
  • Cloud app prices will rise by about 10% on average.
  • Custom Charts Products are no longer free at the 1-10 user license level
  • A 60-day grace period is extended to existing customers as long as you stay in the same tier and get your quote by the due date.

Final Thoughts & Take-Aways:

At the end of the day, Tempo has great products, at any price. Let’s just hope they can ease into what seems like quarterly double digit increases as the world tries to find stability.
