GP Availability Date

Posted on December 5, 2012

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 will hit general availability on December 19, Microsoft revealed today.

The release will bring to market a product that Microsoft believes will offer three primary competitive features in the SMB ERP and accounting market: the web client and improved hostability by partners; faster and lower risk deployments; and range of productivity enhancements.

"We're bringing ISVs along for the ride with GP 2013," Schoenfish explained, by streamlining the upgrade process down to the point where some solutions simply need to be recompiled.  In other cases, the amount of developer work is just "limited" in order to make products perform on the new platform, not taking into account, of course, the 125 new and improved features that will be forcing many ISVs to raise their game to continue adding value to the base solution.
