5 Ways to Prepare for the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client

The past three months have found me diligently ramping up my skills around the deployment of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client. I have had the distinct privilege of working directly with some of the guys in Fargo on testing some of the installation procedures, particularly on the Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 platforms.

As a matter of fact, I think I was probably the first person attempting a deployment on these two platforms and have learned a great deal about it in the process. So, here's a list of considerations for deploying the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 web client on the Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 platforms.

1.       Understand the Web Client architecture

Deploying the standard Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Dexterity-based rich client remains virtually unchanged. However, if adding the Web Client to your environment as a deployment option, you must begin to understand how the different components interact between them. Session Central Service, Session Host, Session Service, Tenant Management Service, Tenant Discovery Services, Silverlight Client, and Runtime Service, are now a standard part of the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 lexicon and very important concepts to master prior to planning any deployment, whether single machine or multiple machines.
