The principal of Information Technology Group Inc., David Cieslak will serve as the chairman of the Sage Accpac Business Partner Advisory Council.

BPAC is a select group of Sage Accpac Business Partners that meets twice a year with Sage executives to provide feedback and perspective on product features and development, corporate strategy, industry trends, and the competitive landscape. Chosen for the position by his peers, Cieslak will serve a one-year term.

"Sage Accpac management relies on BPAC to contribute to and provide feedback on our business and product strategies," said Sage Software vice president and general manager for Sage Accpac Craig Downing, in a statement. "I'm thrilled to have David as chair. He's supremely well-suited to provide leadership and direction for this invaluable council."

Separately, earlier this month Paisley Consulting, which provides solutions for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, operational risk management and audit automation announced a partnership with Lombardi Software Inc., a manufacturer of software for management, audit and compliance applications.

Paisley will embed Lombardi OEM Edition within its Risk Navigator, AutoAudit and Paisley Solution applications to deliver improved business process management functionality.

"Our selection of Lombardi was the natural choice because they have leading technology and superior functionality," said Paisley chief executive Tim Welu, in a statement. "Incorporating Lombardi OEM Edition into our software enables us to drive innovation and provide the most powerful solutions to customers that clearly differentiate Paisley from other market offerings."

By incorporating Lombardi OEM Edition, the Paisley portfolio of products will more easily automate workflow, event monitoring and performance analytics. The new functionality will be available to customers starting with the fall 2006 release of the Paisley Consulting portfolio of products.
