This month we have received an important update from Microsoft concerning the Dynamics GP product, and we wanted to share with you the key points.
Microsoft Dynamics GP Life Cycle Update
It's important to note that contrary to what some competitors have shared on the internet, there is not an end date for Dynamics GP support!
Microsoft stands firm in their commitment to continue providing enhancements and provide resources for GP support as a part of their "Modern Lifecycle" policy up to 2028 and beyond; as noted in the diagram below.
Microsoft GP Dynamics Annual Updates
Microsoft will continue to release annual upgrades for Dynamics GP systems. The target date is October of each year. The version that will be released next month is version 18.6. They include regular regulatory (tax) updates, security updates, hot fixes, and usability and reliability updates.
We have already begun scheduling update service projects for existing clients to upgrade to version 18.6. So please click here if you would like us to schedule a call to discuss this topic for your business software system.
Dynamics GP Enhancements
There continues to be numerous enhancements available to streamline and provide automation for your Dynamics GP business software system.
Here are a few that many of our clients have seen great value implementing in the past year:
Improving Smartlist reporting performance (If you are waiting for your Smartlist reports, we have a solution that resolves this--one client went from waiting 20 minutes to getting their report in 12 seconds!)
Daily dashboarding report for management, that includes both Dynamics GP and other line of business application data
AR statement automation
Using Dynamics GP "In The Cloud"
Dynamics GP users have multiple options to use an ERP system in the cloud.
If you would like to keep your current systems but update them to current cloud infrastructure, we can assist your team to migrate your on-premise GP servers to the Microsoft Azure Cloud, so that your system can receive the Microsoft umbrella of protection from the many viruses and security risks that can lead to ransomware threats.
Or you can opt to migrate to the modern Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central business software system--as many of our clients have done in recent years.
If you would like to learn more about any of these enhancements or migration options to the cloud for your system, please click here.
