The announcement about the end of life of an ERP system has fired back every single ERP vendor. Whether we talk about Oracle announcement for JD Edwards, SAP announcement of ECC, or Microsoft announcement of GP, the vendors that have a lot of solutions in their customer base without very strong communities can typically sunset their products very easily without much noise. But that is not possible when you are a vendor such as Microsoft. And you have one of the most adopted ERP solutions with over 40K installations. So MS may keep extending its deadline for EOL for GP. But how long? Would it have a clear direction for the cloud just like other products in the MS portfolio like Dynamics BC and F&O?Does it make sense to buy GP in 2022? Does it make sense to stay on GP and wait until Microsoft officially sunsets it? If so, what would be your alternatives? But which businesses would be the right fit for Microsoft Dynamics GP?
In today's episode, we invited a panel of industry experts for a live discussion on LinkedIn to discuss major stories in the ERP and digital transformation space and an objective and independent review of Microsoft Dynamics GP's capabilities. We covered several grounds, including its history, technology evolution, product roadmap, strengths, and weaknesses. Finally, we reviewed which industries and market segments are using Microsoft GP as of today and which segments are going to be the best fit.
