“Understanding the Microsoft products that will drive Dynamics GP forward”

My new article is up over at MSDynamicsWorld.com. This time I take a look at The Future of Microsoft Dynamics GP: 5 Cool Technologies You Should Watch For (and Learn) in the Coming Years, based on my past experiences and learnings at the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference 2011 in Fargo, North Dakota – see my article Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference 2011 Wrap Up. In this article I explore Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Silverlight, Microsoft Visual Studio Lightswitch, cloud computing, and even Microsoft Dexterity.

If you have experience with any of these technologies it would be very cool to know your thoughts and how they have helped your work.

Until next post!

>New Article on MSDynamicsWorld: MVP Mark Polino on "Integration Frustrations"

March 30, 2011

>“Significant gaps remain as eConnect and Integration Manager stagnate”

MVP Mark Polino

If you are familiar with MVP Mark Polino you will know that he has always had a love-hate relationship with Microsoft Dynamics GP integration tools – see Mark Polino’s Integration Manager Rant.

This time Mark vents out his frustrations (again!) with Integration Manager and eConnect over at MSDynamicsWorld in his new article Integration Frustration: Why Microsoft Dynamics GP Integration Tools Need a Kickstart. If you have your own comments, complaints, or if you are enamored with the tools and think Mark is simply overreacting, please read Mark’s article and add your comments.

Until next post!

Dynamics Latam Blog

September 14, 2010

No, it’s not a new Salsa group, but they will sure write to the tune of it. It’s actually the brand new Microsoft Dynamics Latin American blog, Dynamics Latam, featuring my buddy Francisco Hillyer and Betrand Desmarest (left to right) showcasing content for the Spanish speaking Dynamics community around the world.

I have been in touch with Francisco for the past 3 years. He just recently moved from California to become a part of Microsoft’s Mexico’s support team. Chances are you will see future contributions of mine added to this new blog – ehem!

Muchos exitos compadres,

Until next post!

Jivtesh Singh disects the Microsoft Dynamics GP Community

August 22, 2010

If by now you are not familiar with fellow blogger Jivtesh Singh, it’s time for you to go take a look at his work. Jivtesh has set out to disect the Microsoft Dynamics GP community by the numbers in his latest article Dynamics GP Experts. In addition, he has worked tirelessly in putting together what I have denominated The Mother of All Blogs. Yes! Jivtesh is the author and matermind behind the now popular GPWindow (see my previous article GPWindow: The next best thing after the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Cookbook). In his latest iteration of the popular site, Jivtesh has incorporated searches to all the Microsoft Dynamics GP community forums currently available. If at first you complained about not being able to search every site for what you are looking for, there are virtually no excuses now for not being able to find a specific topic across the spectrum of resources across the community.

Jivtesh already did his part, now you do yours! Check out GPWindow, do a few searches on something you could not find before, see what comes back. But more importantly, let Jivtesh know what you think about his work. After all, he’s only spent over a year and a half putting it together as, like you, he had trouble finding things with the growing number of resources.

Until next post!

GPWindow: The next best thing after the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Cookbook

July 23, 2010

I have to give credit where credit is due. MVP Mark Polino may have the hottest summer read (see my article Cookbooks), but my good friend and fellow blogger Jivtesh Singh has the mother of all blog sites… literally! Jivtesh is one of those die hard and passionate about Dynamics GP individuals. He probably saw the same problem many of you have seen with the proliferation of Microsoft Dynamics GP blogs and asked himself the same set of questions you may be asking yourself: “how the heck do I keep up with all these blogs?”, “I saw an article on [some topic here], where did I read it?”.

Jivtesh now provides an answer to these questions with his new GPWindow platform, which aggregates every single blog article, video, and resource about Microsoft Dynamics GP.

C’mon, you know there’s absolutely no reason to do this! For all I know, Jivtesh could be home writing cool articles for his own blog… but that’s not how we Microsoft Dynamics GP advocates and evangelists feel about the subject. We always need to go the extra mile. Jivtesh has spent a considerable amount of time (over 1 year!) categorizing all these articles and topics and in his own words “Categorization is a work in progress, about 5000 links have been categorized and about 1000 more to go. It’s a very time consuming, but enjoyable process, which I do after my work hours or over the weekend. I enjoy organizing information, so I don’t mind all the time this has taken me.”.

It’s time for you to do your part. Visit GPWindow and at least take the time to play around, but more importantly, let Jivtesh know what you think about this site.

Until next post!
