Deceiving Magic Act: The “Disappearance” of Microsoft Dynamics GP Actually Means Growth!

Email | Print

As noted in Bob Scott’s Insights, NetSuite’s CEO, Zach Nelson said that “Microsoft Dynamics GP is disappearing as a competitor”. He’d discussed that alleged trend before, but this time he put it in context- “The one prediction I will repeat is the continuing demise of Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains.”

Contrary to these beliefs, Microsoft Dynamics GP is experiencing growth and more than ever before! In fact according to this press release, Crispin Read, general manager of Microsoft Dynamics ERP said, “We have seen unprecedented momentum for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, having recently added more new customers in one quarter than any previous quarter in the history of the solution.”

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 was launched in the first half of 2010 to a very eager following of customers, partners and prospects. Microsoft led 25 events across the U.S. with over 4000 registered customers and standing room only crowds.  Microsoft partners were right there alongside Microsoft, hosting over 50 of their own events.

SP 1 was released in September of 2010 and Microsoft continues to innovate with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2, which is expected to release in Q2 of this calendar year.

Microsoft Dynamics GP has tens of thousands of customers as well as a vibrant VAR and ISV ecosystem.  It’s a proven to meet unique industry functionality that goes deep into many key verticals.  On top of all this, Microsoft Dynamics GP has the flexibility to be deployed as an on premise solution and/or as a hosted solution depending on what works best for your business.

In conclusion, we find this “disappearing magic act” to be quite deceiving since Microsoft Dynamics GP is in its prime.
