ESW Capital Buys RoseASP

Microsoft Dynamics hosting pioneer Linda Rose is retiring from day-to-day operations after the sale of San Diego-based RoseASP Inc. to ESW Capital LLC.

Founded in 2000, RoseASP provides hosted Dynamics services, including Dynamics AX, GP, NAV, SL and CRM.

Austin, Texas-based ESW specializes in acquiring and growing mature software companies. RoseASP is one of four companies ESW bought on April 17, according to ESW's Web site. Among the 54 acquisitions ESW listed since 2006 are Kerio Technologies, Wave Systems and GFI.

Michael Bone will run RoseASP with the title of chief revenue officer, the company said this week. Bone was most recently CRO at CyberLinkASP, another ESW company, according to his LinkedIn profile. Rose is stepping down from her CEO job and moving into a management advisory role.
