Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Beta Available For Partners To Download

Microsoft Dynamics GPErrol Schoenfish, Director Product Management at Microsoft, on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has just announced that the beta release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 is now available for download.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to download it until tomorrow morning but it can be found here.

I’m really looking forward to playing with this version of GP.

Consumer Preview Of New Microsoft Office Available

Microsoft Office PreviewMicrosoft have just announced the availability of the Consumer Preview of Microsoft Office which delivers Office as a cloud service using all the innovations of Windows 8.

Okay, that sounds like a press release because it is; it was quoted from Microsoft’s press release. The Consumer Preview is available here and offers lots of new functionality and integration with Windows 8.

Full details of the new features are here but there is no news on the eventual pricing. I am a little suspicious of pricing with the tie-in to the cloud and especially the Sky Drive service.

I’ve signed up and will be taking a look first thing tomorrow morning when I get to work (probably badly timed as the second thing I have tomorrow is a Microsoft Dynamics GP exam.
