Last week, I wrote about the major benefits of upgrading to Version 10 of Dynamics GP. This had me thinking about future releases of GP & what they would have in store. Peering into their crystal ball, Microsoft let their Partners know what exactly they foresee for the future of Dynamics GP.
SP4 for Version 10 is the last service pack users will be seeing for a while. This is because in the second quarter of 2010, Microsoft will release Version 11 of Dynamics GP. Highlights include Role Tailored Business Intelligence & further integration with Microsoft Office. Then around 2012 or 2013, Version 12 of Dynamics GP will be released. The focus of this release will be on improving user productivity & the simplicity of the system. This is all in an effort to further target mid-market buyers of ERP software; a market Microsoft feels they have a competitive advantage in with Dynamics GP. Lastly, 5-6 years down the road, Microsoft will release Version 13. This version will have a revamped user interface as well as incorporate the next generation of Microsoft technologies, potentially a large shift for many users.
