As Linda Rosencrance writes in an article for MSDynamicsWorld.com, Microsoft's plans for Microsoft Forecaster are unclear. Microsoft Forecaster was dropped from presentations at Convergence last month, and Rosencrance quotes Microsoft Dynamics GP consultant Noah Moseley as saying, "Partners heard at Convergence that Forecaster will not have any development."
In an email to MSDynamicsWorld.com, Microsoft Dynamics director of public relations, Jim Desler, wrote, "Microsoft Forecaster continues to make it easy for businesses to realize the benefits of a budgeting and planning application. Customers benefit from the immediate control of the entire budgeting and planning process this application brings. We continue to support Microsoft Forecaster, but at this time we are not sharing a future roadmap for this application."
What does that mean? Sounds like Microsoft is taking a moment to decide whether to continue developing Microsoft Forecaster or to develop a new budgeting and planning solution. Or perhaps that decision has already been made, and we're just waiting on an announcement. No way to know for sure until an announcement is made.
In the meantime, Microsoft Forecaster is still available and still as useful a tool as ever it was. And the good news is, now Microsoft is practically giving it away. Talk to MIG & Co. for current prices and offers.
