My predictions for Microsoft Dynamics GP in 2019
It’s that time of year. Time for a new set of predictions for Dynamics GP in 2019. How about a recap of last year first?
- You will be underwhelmed by new features. I’m giving myself an “A” for this one. There were some nice features in GP 2018 R2, but nothing so compelling that you couldn’t skip the upgrade.
- D365 Business Central pressure will shift from Microsoft to the partner. Partner pressure on GP clients is definitely building, even if it’s slower than I thought. I grade this a “B”
- Power BI with GP will go mainstream. There was definitely more interest at Summit this year, but I don’t know that Power BI is killing it yet. We’ll call this a “B minus”. I think I’m just early with these two predictions.
- Security will continue to be front and center. GDPR did that all by itself for the first half of last year, while breaches at Facebook and fumbles at Google kept everyone focused on security in the second half. I think that deserves an “A”.
All the kids self-grade their work nowadays. I’m just keeping up. With that, let’s look at 2019.
1. The Intelligent Cloud will have a low adoption rate for GP.
The problem with Microsoft’s Intelligent Cloud idea is that there are a lot of steps to get GP data to a point where things like machine learning can work with it…and all the current machine learning examples are lame.
