Advanced Credentialed Professional Accreditation Retained

Association of Dynamics ProfessionalsThis post is part brag and part public service announcement. The Dynamics Credentialed Professional Exams used to be offered through the Association of Dynamics Professionals, but are now offered through GPUG; once you’ve passed an exam and received the credential, the credential lasts for two years.

If, like me, you passed the exams before 1/1/2017, you have an extended grace period until 31/3/2019 to resit and pass one of your exams. This is the public service element of the post.

Now for the brag; I resat one of the exams earlier this week and passed, so I can, for another two years, claim to be one of these:

Microsoft Dynamics GP Roadmap 2017-2019

Microsoft Dynamics GPA new roadmap for Microsoft Dynamics GP was released at GPUG Amplify last week which shows the next three releases:

Microsoft Dynamics GP Roadmap 2017-2019

The next version, due for release in 2017 H2 (most likely December) is Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 and includes updates to Workflow (first time I’ve seen references to Workflow 3.0 and 4.0), Finance and HR Optimizations, Doc Attach, Power Suite (?) and top new features requested by customers.

I believe there is still time for you to get your suggestions onto Microsoft Connect.

If you see posts of the slide presented at GPUG Amplify you’ll notice that the 2016 and 2016 R2 columns were identical; the one posted above does not have this same issue.
