A Solution to the Dilemma of Server Proliferation

January 29 2008

There seems no end to the demand for ever-more servers as the Dynamics GP platform continues to expand under Microsoft.

The underpinnings of Dynamics GP are SQL Server for database chores, Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server (MOSS) for workflow, and Exchange 2007 for tying tasks, calendar and email to your financial data, each of which needs its own server. If you have a larger organization you may also need Citrix Servers or Terminal Servers to manage far flung locations and process servers for improved performance.

Whew! What's a CIO, or CFO, to do?
