Data security

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 introduced OData as a new way of accessing information in GP via the internet.  As it is implemented in GP, OData is a resource-based web protocol for querying data. It makes accessing GP data remotely for analysis in products like Tableau or Power BI easier than ever before. This secure connection has been a missing piece of the puzzle in a lot of use cases.
