Microsoft Dynamics GP – there’s an App Store coming for that.

At the annual Worldwide Partner Conference, currently underway, Microsoft has announced that the Microsoft Apps Store for Dynamics ERP and CRM will open in September 2010.  In the announcement, Microsoft stated that the Apps Store for Dynamics ERP and CRM will be “an online catalog” that “will streamline solution discovery for customers, and will provide an easy way for partners to market and distribute solutions to Microsoft Dynamics CRM and ERP customers”.

Reading a little into this, I would expect to see a searchable database of ‘apps’ written by the Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM independent software vendors (ISV’s) in a  fashion similar to what is currently available to the Microsoft partner channel, through the Solution Finder.  That site, however, is a search and link only site ( no commerce capabilities) and it is not available to the customers of Dynamics ERP and CRM products.  The new App Store will be open to both partners and customers, and should include all of the search and link functions, as well as the ability to purchase and download the apps.

In a previous blog post, I referred to the solutions provided by the ISV community as apps, and pointed out that this model had been in place within the Dynamics GP community for many years.  Now, Microsoft has formalized that approach with this announcement about the upcoming Microsoft Apps Store for Dynamics ERP and CRM.
