The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog recently posted the roadmap for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2, Dynamics GP 2018 and later.
Microsoft Dynamics GP roadmap
Following feedback from clients and partners, Microsoft are moving away from the 6 monthly releasde schedule they moved to a while ago. To be honest, that is a bit of a relief; while it was good to get new functionality, every six months was a bit much. So from now, Microsoft will be releasing new versions very 12 months.
The next release we are due is Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 which is due for release on the 1st December, which is 13 days from now. And the day I return home from a visit on client site, so I should hopefully be able to download and start playing straight away 🙂
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 should then be available at a similar date in 2017.
Microsoft have announced that the functionality in the next release will predominately come from the community, so please go to MS Connect to enter in your feedback on what you would like in the next release. I know from experience that Microsoft do use MS Connect as a source of new features or improvements.
Each time we have brought someone new into the ERP Practice at Perfect Image I have challenged them to write a blog about what they learn, and what they already know. I’ve not had any takers until now, but Jamie Harris, who was promoted to my team from the service desk in July last year, has taken up the gauntlet.
His blog, Get Interfaced, has been live for a while now and he is managing a few posts each month. Because he works for me and does a similar role, his blog will likely cover a lot of the same areas as I do, but he will cover them in different ways because we do have different backgrounds.
I started as a software developer and moved into support and then consultancy; Jamie worked for in support and then moved into consultancy (we both did other jobs before moving into IT, but as with most people Jamie had a more diverse set of jobs than I).
New additions to the list of Dynamics GP bloggers are always welcome, especially when they’re one of my team.
Okay not actually as confusing as the title suggests but Mark Polino has migrated hs blog from Blogspot to WordPress and now has the address www.DynamicsAccounting.net pointing to the blog so update your bookmarks and go to the new site for his regular updates on happenings in the Dynamics GP community.
Mark has kept a theme very similar to the one on the Blogspot version so you should be able to adapt to the new site and keep up to date without any problems.
It also marks another GP blog using WordPress along with Victoria Yudin, Ian Stewart, Vaidy Mohan, Sivakumar Venkataraman and I.
A few days ago the Microsoft Dynamics GP Support and Services blog moved from MSDN to the Microsoft Dynamics GP Community site where it had been syndicated for a while.
