    Email | Print

    Microsoft plans to release Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 in December 2014. The system requirements and hardware specs have already been announced, so you can start planning now.

    Download the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 system requirements here.

    Main points to note are that the following are no longer supported with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015:

    • Windows XP all editions
    • Windows Server 2003 all editions
    • Windows Vista all editions
    • Microsoft Office 2007
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 all editions
    • Office Communicator 2007

    The document released by Microsoft contains the minimum client hardware requirements, server recommendations and Terminal Server minimum hardware requirements supported by the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Support Team. But they do point out that the server recommendations are just minimum server requirements. The requirements and recommendations are based on experience with many different installations. Keep in mind that you may need to increase these requirements, due to your specific factors, to achieve the best performance.

    In the document the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Support Team includes the client requirements and remote desktop server requirements, but they also include four different customer profile scenarios. You can review each Customer Profile to determine what profile best fits your user count, modules used and transaction volume and then use that as a recommendation for your server hardware implementation.  Customer profiles included as examples are:
