Code Named "Version 11" now formally Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010

V11? No more. I could not help noticing that on the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference 2009, they were no references to Microsoft Dynamics GP "v11", and rather every sessions GP related has introduced the future product as Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010.

It's no secret the Product Management and Marketing team had been thinkering on whether to continue with the consecutive versioning, or adhere to the year versioning approach used by all other Microsoft products. I guess it's clear now! The new product release name coincide with multiple "2010" products we will see from Microsoft:

Microsoft Office 2010
Microsoft SQL Server 2010, code named Killimanjaro
Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010
Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Until next post!

Are you making up words again Mariano? I like the word "thinkering". I'm going to start using it.

Sure, break with tradition... in keeping with the Windows 7 naming scheme.

Oh boy, I can just see the confusion now...when you say 'GP 10' are you running GP 10.0 or 2010?
