Demystifying Business Ready Licensing for Dynamics GP

Early in 2007, Microsoft began explaining its new Business Ready Licensing model for its Dynamics solutions. But a year later, there's still a lot of confusion! It's time to see if we can clear things up, at least for Dynamics GP. 

Business Ready Licensing is Microsoft's attempt to get rid of individual purchasing of modules and move toward a "happy meal" type of approach for product purchases in the Dynamics line. With Business Ready Licensing, customers get a bundle of modules based on their licensing level. Actually, this is good for everyone. Microsoft gets greater adoption of more modules. Resellers get the opportunity to sell more services around these products. Customers get more options for future growth and avoid being nickeled-and-dimed.

Essentially, there are two license levels and two á la carte groups beyond the license levels.
