Countdown to Microsoft Dynamics GP2015 – New Features Final Part

In our final part of our top 20 features of the all new GP2015, Simon Nicholson counts down the final two exciting new features available; Web Client Browser & MSConnect.

Web Client Browser Independent

The first version of Web Client only supported Internet Explorer. Microsoft received many requests from customers to be able to use their browser of choice; most asked for—Chrome. So, Microsoft got to work and ran our standard performance suite of tests and macros against it. At the end of the day we can now say that we officially support not only IE 9, 10, and 11 but also Chrome version 31.0.1.

 

MSConnect

Microsoft are now reviewing product features, functionality and directionon a b-weekly basis and are looking to the User and Partner community to highlight the features they want and to vote for the most desirable features.

Countdown to Microsoft Dynamics GP2015 – New Features Part Seven

We are now just 5 days from the launch of Microsoft Dynamics GP2015, and Simon Nicholson counts down some of the exciting new features available. Today; GP Light & Azure Backup!

 

Microsoft Dynamics GP Light Users

Microsoft has created a new “Light” User that is low cost but allows Read functionality as well as approval authority for certain GP workflows.

 

Windows Azure Back up

In many cases, GP database backups are typically stored on the same disk or at least the same computer as the SQL Server. This doesn’t provide the customer the ability to recover from a disaster. You will now have an option on the Backup Company window to easily backup your GP databases directly to Windows Azure storage. Providing an easy way to create off-site backups that will get you up and running again in a disaster.

 

 

Our last post in the countdown series will be released tomorrow with Web Client Browser & MSConnect..

Project Accounting Part 1

Project Accounting features have been removed from within Business Portal/ SharePoint and moved to within the Dynamics GP application. This move in functionality will provide greater visibility and control.

 

Project Accounting Part 2

Employee Project Expenses can now be entered directly within Dynamics GP via the Project Employee Expense Report Entry window which allows Project Accounting employees to enter expense reports for any projects to which they are assigned. Employees can also be set up to allow delegates to enter expense reports on their behalf.

Workflow approvals and task assignments are defined for expense reports; workflow actions are executed on the documents from the Expense Entry window or from the Navigation lists.

Countdown to Microsoft Dynamics GP2015 – New Features Part Five

As we approach the launch of Microsoft Dynamics GP2015, Simon Nicholson counts down some of the exciting new features available. Today; Service Based Architecture!

 

Service Based Architecture Part 1

The Service Based Architecture in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 will change the way you think about integrating or building applications that use GP functionality. Unlike previous service models that provided a limited set of operations and was challenging to extend or modify, the new architecture provides a developer with the ability to access any sanScript based functionality within core or third party dictionaries.  Developers can utilize prebuilt operations or create their own.

 

Service Based Architecture Part 2

The deployment of the architecture is scalable so it can fit any sized organization from just a few to hundreds of users and can grow as the organization does and can be deployed on Windows Azure Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas).

 

  1. Identity management – logging on to GP2015 with azure credentials
  2. Improve login experience
  3. Move away from SQL authentication
  4. Support cloud identities like Organizational Accounts (aka Azure AD)
  5. Focus on Web Client, Apps and Services*
  6. Windows or Organizational Account
  7. Runtime process run as service account
  8. Sync with Windows Server AD

 

The countdown continues tomorrow with Project Accounting functionality..
