Five predictions for Microsoft Dynamics GP in 2015

Last year's predictions worked out pretty well. I called Satya Nadella as Microsoft's next CEO, among other things. Let's try this again. I have five new predictions for Microsoft Dynamics GP in 2015.

1. The pace of innovation will slow down after the GP 2015 release.

It's no secret a significant number of GP developers (and developers for other Dynamics teams) were laid off. At the same time the pace of significant releases have made it difficult for consultants to keep up. Many companies aren't even trying.  I think that these factors will slow the pace of innovation, possibly allowing us to digest what's already come out.

2. Big rocks will get smaller and small rocks will get more numerous.

Mark: I can only hope this prediction comes true. While a six-month release cycle sounds good it's awful from the consulting side.
