Future of Microsoft Dynamics GP – Lifecycle Update 2028 & Beyond

In October 2019, Microsoft introduced the Modern Lifecycle Policy for Microsoft Dynamics GP  before this update Dynamics GP was governed by the Fixed Lifecycle Policy which in comparison has fixed end dates for their support. The Modern Policy offers continuous support and servicing, including bug fixes, new features, and the latest tax updates. This highlights the fact that Dynamics GP is not going anywhere soon with the Lifecycle Roadmap showing dates well into 2028 and beyond.

 

Dynamics GP customers can stay current by choosing at least one of the three all-inclusive Dynamics GP updates, typically released in June, October, and December yearly . The October update normally provides new capabilities whereas the two other updates will typically consist of hotfixes, tax updates, and regulatory updates.

 

Microsoft Dynamics GP is a powerful on-premises application that has built a huge community over the last 30+ years of Partners and Customers that love the product. Microsoft intends to continue both enhancing and supporting the solution in the future. Upgrading your Dynamics GP system ensures that you have access to new features, in addition to a resolution to any system glitches. Upgrading regularly also provides you with tax compliance, improved security, and more predictable costs.

Thinking of transitioning to the cloud with either Dynamics GP or Dynamics 365 Business Central?

 

Transition to Cloud Dynamics GP

Dynamics GP is a mature and robust ERP solution. However, over time, many clients have grown tired of maintaining servers, performing upgrades, etc. These clients are content on the system and have no reason to find another ERP platform. These clients will often transition their existing Dynamics GP environment to the cloud. WebSan is currently the largest cloud Dynamics GP partner in the country, providing hosting services for many organizations, large and small. We have a standard migration process to seamlessly transition your Dynamics GP environment to the cloud.

In the cloud, customers benefit from complimentary upgrades and backups. Security is also administered on a complimentary basis. Further, our full suite of services allows users to expand into areas of automation such as EDI or other integrations, opening up many possibilities that do not exist today. Further, upgraded environments allow customers to take advantage of Power BI & workflows capabilities that Microsoft has recently deployed.

What's Next for Dynamics GP?

Dynamics GP continues to thrive, both for on-premise and cloud customers. Microsoft Dynamics GP is a mature solution with over 45,000 customers around the world, so it isn’t going away anytime soon. However, Dynamics GP isn’t immune from Microsoft’s consistent push towards the cloud.

So why move GP to the cloud?

Here are some reasons why GP customers move to the cloud:

  •           They need to invest in new hardware to support new versions of GP
  •           They are concerned about backups, recovery, security and 24/7 remote access
  •           They are not current with Microsoft on your maintenance and want to add users/capabilities to the system
  •           They are looking for better access to information/reporting (GP2018 required for Power BI)

So what can we expect in future releases of Dynamics GP?

First, Dynamics GP releases and development will continue from Microsoft. The current roadmap is projecting two additional version releases. This clearly indicates a commitment by Microsoft considering these are typically released every two years. Customers should expect various user community requested enhancements and fixes.

Manage all your companies using only one report with Multi-Company Consolidation in Dynamics GP!

 

Management Reporter provides the flexibility of consolidating financial data across one or multiple organizations in one single report. This report includes a summary (consolidated) report for all companies as well as the option to view a report for each of the companies that you are using on the consolidation.

The simplest method to create a consolidation of all companies is by using a reporting tree. A reporting tree is an optional “building block” that allows you to list all companies to be consolidated. Once the report is generated you will have the option to select any company from the reporting node on the consolidated report.

 


Viewing Companies Side by Side

The second option for consolidated reports is to show each company side by side. This can also be achieved by defining a reporting tree with all companies and using that reporting tree to assign each company on separate columns.

Employees Quit Management, Not Companies

Out of the many reasons employees choose to leave a company, majority are likely to point back to a problem with how a company decides to manage their employees. According to Forbes, three common reasons that have motivated employees to quit is if the employee feels intellectually stifled, they lack autonomy, and/or they feel as if though their work is unrecognized and unappreciated. If you’re worried about losing your best and brightest, see how ERP software implementation can help you address some of these concerns.

Dealing with unchallenged employees

Repetitive tasks such as entering order entries or entering General Ledger Reconciliation and Collections can be labour intensive, creating unmotivated and unhappy employees. With built in automation functions however, these tasks can be completed in minutes, allowing your employee to use their time more productively and apply their efforts to more worthwhile tasks.

Lack of autonomy

To micromanage or to establish various security protocols that hinders your employee’s ability to do their jobs can easily make an employee feel as if they aren’t trusted to make basic decisions in their work. ERP software such as Dynamics GP resolves this issue through employee portals, which allows employees rights to access necessary information and to communicate with other members of the team for help or assistance.
