This time the question of Microsoft Dynamics GP’s future has been raised by Mark Brummel, who was a Microsoft MVP (Business Solutions) for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV product, and is based in the Netherlands.
I love writing these sorts of articles. My good friend and fellow MVP, Mariano Gomez, has been using GP Power Tools to assist him in his role as Development Manager at Mekorma and has written blog articles about his experiences.
GP Power Tools removes much of the complexity and time needed for Cross Dictionary development in Dexterity.
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.
Back in February of this year I posted a simple maths puzzle that I had seen on a Facebook post; Trending: Only for genius ?? 3 – 3 x 6 + 2 = ?? to challenge my readers.
Many Microsoft employees, Microsoft MVPs (Most Valuable Professionals), GPUG All Stars and experienced users donate their time to help the community. There only reward being thanked and having their responses marked as answers.
A good sign that the release is approaching is the publishing of the schedule of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 upgrade blog articles.
