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.

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.

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.
