Best of 2013: Top Microsoft Dynamics GP news of the year

by Jason Gumpert

11. RapidStart Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Availabile Now (February 8, 2013)

From the article:

"According to updates shared with Dynamics GP partners, the tool takes a new approach focusing on ‘the life of a consultant.' It will enable multiple ongoing projects, the ability to save configurations from previous implementations in a library, and the ability to save work-in-progress that can be revisited later.  It will also add flexibility to tracking the order in which the features are used, taking into account the fact that a consultant may input different information at unpredictable times, not always in the same order."

10. In Microsoft reorg, Dynamics team mostly intact under Tatarinov (July 11, 2013)

The news of Microsoft's major reorg appears to have left the Dynamics product line nearly unblemished. Dynamics leadership remains under Kirill Tatrinov, with the addition of "dotted line reports" to leaders of other reorganized groups. The Dynamics team's product leaders will also report to Qi Lu of the Applications and Services Engeering Group; the marketing leaders will also report to Tami Reller of the Marketing Group; and Tatarinov's sales leader will also report to the COO group under Kevin Turner.
