This year will be a busy year for Microsoft Dynamics GP. Microsoft recently laid out their plan for two key Dynamics GP releases this year. According to Microsoft’s Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog, the MSDYNGP development team has adopted a six month release cycle to bring value to customers on a regular basis and is “designed to enhance our new business proposition and bring incremental value to [Business Ready Enhancement Plan] customers on a much more regular basis.”
The new cycle was briefly recognized in 2013 with service pack releases: Service Pack 1 (SP1) arrived in May and SP2 followed in September.
During the first half of 2014, Microsoft plans to follow up their service pack releases with the R2 version of Dynamics GP 2013. Microsoft’s timeline indicated GP 2013 R2 will bring improved workflow and identity management functions, and introduce GP’s first companion apps. Dynamics GP‘s next major release, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, will debut during Q4 of 2014. According to Microsoft’s blog, Dynamics GP 2015 will feature even “more functionality, more workflow, more apps and a Service Based Architecture that will be the foundation for the further development of Dynamics GP over the next five years.”
