Attention Dynamics GP Customers and Partners: We Need Your Help to celebrate Fabrikam Day!

Back in 2007, Microsoft refreshed the Dynamics GP sample data. When they did this, they changed the name of the GP Sample Company from The World On-Line to Fabrikam and they set the Sample Company date to April 12, 2017. This date, which is now only a few weeks away, has become known in the Dynamics GP Community as Fabrikam Day. For more information on Fabrikam Day, check out Amber Bell’s blog here. Fabrikam Day is the perfect opportunity for those of us in the Dynamics GP community to celebrate the large, global, diverse community and Customers and Partners that wake up every day and use Dynamics GP to make their business better. But we need your help! We are asking Dynamics GP Customers and Partners all over the world to send us pictures of themselves taken with a sign that says #FabrikamDay. These pictures could be taken in your office with your team, in front of a landmark that uniquely represents your location, or any where else of your choosing. Melissa and I took this picture in front of Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, as an example. But please feel free to be creative with your pictures. We will take the best submissions and use them in a Fabrikam Day video that we will post on Facebook, Twitter and Linked In to help us all celebrate and promote our amazing community. To submit your photos, either post them to twitter with the hashtag #FabrikamDay or email to FabrikamDay@powergponline.com. Join [...]

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 and OData, close but no cigar

Prior to the release of GP2016, I was super excited about the new OData feature.  I was so looking forward to a live method of sharing data in SQL Server (from Microsoft Dynamics GP) to Microsoft Power BI and Excel, regardless of whether the data is on Premise or in the Cloud.  Big sentence, big request. So what is OData anyways? OData is a set of rules and procedures that allow users to access data via an API, even allowing users to create API’s.  OData stands for Open Data Protocol.  OData will provide you a consistent experience accessing data from anywhere on any device. So what is an API then? API’s are a set of programming instructions that allow one piece of software to access data from another piece of software.  API stands for Application Programming Interface.  A good example of this is when a game you play on your iPad prompts you to use Facebook credentials for the game log in.  The game is using an API to get your log in information from Facebook instead of creating a log in system of their own.  The API will create a secure URL called an “Endpoint” to expose only the data you want exposed, and nothing else. Putting it together Obviously it is much more technical than I spell it out here, but if you were not sure what it all does, this will give you a bit of a foundation.  To put the pieces together for our world, let’s [...]

Dynamics GP and Pokémon Go: Something old is new again.

If you haven’t heard about Pokémon Go, you are surely living under a rock or in a cave with no Wi-Fi.  Who would have thought that a game that became so popular in the 90’s would come back so strong today?  And that our kids would rather play the game they were so familiar with then some new game.  It just goes to show that our world of ever changing technology can take something old and make it new and exciting again. The same feelings can be said in the Dynamics GP community.  Many of us have been around since the beginning, or pretty close to the beginning, and we love this product and community.  As the Pokémon Go fever has taken hold, it made me think of the many other similarities between the Dynamics GP community and Pokémon. Let’s start with the Pokémon; those pesky little creatures (Pocket Monsters – did you know that?) roaming the earth while the Pokémon Trainers catch and train them for battle.  Pokémon come in different shapes and size and some with more power than others.   Does this sound familiar?  All of those customers around the globe and partners trying to gather as many as they can…. And training them.  “Gotta catch ‘em all!” Then you have Pokestops.  These are incredible places where, with the flick of your finger you gain great tools for your journey.  The Dynamics GP community has Pokestops in the form of CustomerSource, GPUG Forums, partner resource websites, etc.  All [...]

Microsoft Cloud Terminology

The inaugural Microsoft Dynamics GP Customer Conference, Amplify, was an important display of Microsoft’s commitment to Dynamics GP; and with Microsoft focusing on a “Mobile first, Cloud first” world, it is essential that you look at and define your Cloud strategy. You need to be informed, prepared, and ready when a prospect or customer asks about your Cloud offerings and requests a quote! While most GP Partners are familiar with On-Premise/Perpetual Licensing model for GP, the terrain and terminology differs in the Microsoft Cloud world and you may not be as familiar, so I’m going to arm you with Cloud terminology used with Microsoft, and our NjevityToGo Cloud Partner offerings. BYOL (Bring Your Own License)/Hosting The customer has purchased On-Premise Concurrent User Licenses, and wants to have them hosted in the Cloud. The customer must have an active maintenance plan on their Dynamics products in order to bring Dynamics licenses to the Cloud. Subscription The customer secures Named Users Licenses via Subscription rather than buy user licenses up front and then continue to pay annual maintenance, as with On-Premise Concurrent User licenses. The Subscription model is essentially “renting” the software licenses. Named Users While Concurrent User licenses are used in the Microsoft Dynamics On-Premise/Perpetual world, with Cloud, Microsoft requires that all licenses are for Named Users. Generic users, ‘Shipping Dept.’, or multiple users logging in under one Named User within a Cloud Environment is not allowed. User Deactivation The user will be deactivated and no longer have access the Cloud [...]
