Important Microsoft Business Portal And DCO Licensing Changes And Deadlines


Email | Print

With the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 there will be some significant changes to the pricing and licensing of Microsoft Dynamics GP that will go into effect on May 1st, 2010.

InterDyn - Remington Consulting wants to ensure that you are aware of the changes being made to the DCO (Dynamics Client for Office) licenses.

What is DCO?

A set of familiar, yet powerful tools available to compliment the Dynamics GP solution by providing deeper business insight across your organization in a cost effective manner. DCO licenses are essentially the equivalent to a BP (Business Portal) license. Microsoft will be going away from the BP licenses in favor of the DCO licenses.

Dynamics Client for Office:

  • Center Executive Dashboards
  • External Lists with Write Back
  • Excel Reports
  • SRS Reports and Report Models
  • Graphs and KPI's
  • Business Portal
  • Analysis Cubes
  • Management Reporter Viewer
  • eConnect Web Services Run-Time

Why DCO?

Reduce the complexity of using your business management solutions by accessing it through familiar Microsoft Office system applications
Extend the power, insights and process control of your business management solution to employees across the company
Reduce total cost of ownership by eliminating the need for a full-access license

When is DCO available?

This repackaged version of DCO is available starting May 1, 2010

DCO will be available for Business Ready Licensing clients on both Business Essentials and Advance Management

How much does it cost?
