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 [...]

What does Dynamics 365 mean to Dynamics GP Partners?

Lately the chatter in the Microsoft community has been around the Dynamics 365 announcement, but since that announcement there has been more confusion then answers in the partner community.  If you are a Dynamics GP partner, what does Dynamics 365 mean to you?  Do you have to learn how NAV works or how this new solution works?  The answer is no! So, I’ll admit, the Dynamics 365 demo was pretty cool.  For a front end user interacting with customers on orders, it seemed almost revolutionary.  But then I thought, what will a back office users see?  How will they interact with this new product? So I downloaded the preview.  The download and setup was quick and easy – I like that.  Then I went to do a journal entry…. I didn’t even know what I was looking at, and I have an accounting degree. I am a long time Dynamics GP person (I say person, because I have worked throughout the channel).  I have been in this space for 20 years.  It is the product I know.  The product I trust and the product I know has worked for tens of thousands of customers around the world.  As cool as Dynamics 365 seems, it is still a new product and I don’t know what its potential is for a partner organization. As a long time Dynamics GP person I am proud to talk about PowerGP Online.  Our team has been working with Microsoft to deliver to you, our partners, Dynamics GP on Azure.  PowerGP [...]
