Over the last two or three weeks I’ve been doing a series of posts on how to install the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics (prerequisites, installation, configuration, verification , security configuration, Management Tools installation and Management Tools configuration) leading up to this series of posts on how to install the Connector for Microsoft Dynamics GP in order to link Microsoft Dynamics GP with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP is the major prerequisite for installing the Connector for Microsoft Dynamics.
Being a Microsoft Dynamics GP focused blog, it is the integration to Microsoft Dynamics GP I’m going to take a look at over the next couple of weeks or so depending on how quickly I get the posts written and published.
Connector for Microsoft Dynamics provides a two way integration between Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Microsoft Dynamics GP with the below diagram showing the entities which can be integrated from one system to the other;
I’ve just returned from the test centre with my MB2-866 Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Customization & Configuration certification giving me three certs for Dynamics CRM, three for Dynamics GP and the Managing Dynamics Implementations (SureStep) cert.
I had memory problems on Thursday when I left work for the weekend (I forgot to take the USB pen drive containing my blog home with me) so couldn’t get the Management Reporter client installation blog post completed and uploaded; I’ll do that at lunchtime today.
I was out of the office last week learning about Microsoft Dynamics CRM and have passed the MB2-867 Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Installation & Deployment certification; a nice addition to the three Microsoft Dynamics GP certs I already have.
Any items of interest I encounter about Dynamics CRM which relate to GP, such as the CRM-GP Connector, will be shared here.
The reason is that I start a new job today.
Over the last eight years I have worked as a support analyst, a senior support analyst and as a finance consultant for a Microsoft Silver Partner in the NW of England dealing with Microsoft Dynamics GP.
As of this morning, I am starting a new job as a consultant for a Microsoft Gold Partner in the NE of England dealing with Microsoft Dynamics GP but also with the potential for learning some Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
I intend that the subject matter remain mainly with Dynamics GP but I will include anything of interest from Dynamics CRM that I come across.
I hope you’ll bear with me through any disruption and don’t forget about me 🙂
