12 Days of DPL 9 Features

You know the traditional holiday tune where one delivers increasingly grander gifts to his/her companion over the span of 12 days. I believe it draws a parallel to how one will feel upon starting up our forthcoming release DPL 9 – licenses for which are now available for pre-release purchase at a 25% discount! It’s the software tool that keeps giving when it comes to decision analytics, performance, interoperability and polish. So I give you Syncopation’s interpretation of this holiday classic.

♫♪ By the 12th day post re - lease DPL 9 has offered me… ♪♫
