Dynamics GP: Learning to say "There's an App for That"

I noticed a shift in communication from the Microsoft Dynamics GP team with information coming out of the 2013 Technical Airlift.  Microsoft was referring to "Apps" for Dynamics GP.

At first I thought it was my imagination, and then maybe an accident, but Microsoft's communication at events tends to be very deliberate. When I looked at this in light of Microsoft's recent changes to solutions that used to be included in the product, it seemed like a clear signal of a shift in both direction and message.

The old message was that GP was both solid and flexible with a network of robust, mature ISV solutions available to address almost any need.

app store for Dynamics

Mark, a Dynamics app store already exists. Not as clean as you imagined, but out there nonetheless. The store is the SharePoint Marketplace. Dynamics NAV is able to publish apps that are consumed via O365. It is my understanding that the other Dynamics products are on the same path. Let us know what you find. Thanks for posting.
