Following on from last week’s GPUG Amplify conference, Pam Misialek has released an updated version of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Product Roadmap as at March 2017. While I was unable to attend the conference, I heard that it was a success!
This corrected slide has fixed some minor errors that were on the slide presented at the conference (oops).
After months of work, I am extremely excited to announce that GP Power Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP (GPPT) Build 22 is now available for download. Please update your systems to get all the new features.
GP Power Tools was previously known as Support Debugging Tool (SDT), which was discontinued in October 2014. If you are still using the previous product, please upgrade to the supported and much better GP Power Tools product.
Since forever, the pundits have been preaching the demise of Great Plains Dynamics / Microsoft Dynamics GP.
When I joined Microsoft in 2001, one of the things that influenced my decision was the thinking that Dexterity (the language behind Dynamics GP) was going to die and so I decided that I would be better off inside Microsoft than continue working as an ISV (Independent Software Vendor).
Now sixteen years later in 2017 and I am back working as an ISV, and Dexterity, along with Microsoft Dynamics GP, is still going strong… despite the launch of Dynamics 365.
Today is the 26th of January and in the “Lucky Country” it is the Australia Day public holiday.
Australia Day is celebrated on the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships at Port Jackson in New South Wales and the landing of Governor Arthur Phillip in Sydney Cove.
I have been very busy the last few months working on the next build of GP Power Tools (Build 22) and so have not been posting much on the blog. I am extremely excited about the new release as the development almost complete. More details will follow.
However, today’s post is to wish everyone in the community a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
I had a nice surprise this morning. I received an email from Terry Heley from the Microsoft Dynamics GP Support team notifying me of the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2.
This should not have been much of a surprise as the release was promised to be at the start of December at the reIMAGINE 2016 conference. I think the surprise was that December is here already. Christmas is getting closer.
Some of you might know that I have a hobby as a DJ. Not a radio style DJ who has not touched a record (or CD) for years and talks too much. Not a remix DJ who digitally mashes up multiple songs into a single confused track. Not a DJ who creates their own music.
I am talking about a old style club DJ who plays dance music, beat mixes, and might use the odd sample or bit of scratching for fun.
