Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client Phased Release Cycle

At the last Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Airlift it was communicated that the Web Client would be released in phases, addressing each core application functionality. The release cycle is as follows:

If you are currently using HR/Payroll, Project Series, Field Service, and/or Manufacturing, keep in mind that you will be able to upgrade to GP 2013 without any issues and continue to use this functionality with the standard (Dexterity) client.

However, those modules will be enabled gradually at the web client level as soon as testing and some quirks are ironed out with these dictionaries - the quirks are more related to menu display issues and some user interface and code cleanup that will render these dictionaries compatible with the web client.

As a sidebar, dictionary code cleanup makes the packages of data flowing between the Silverlight client and the Session Service very efficient performance wise.

If you have any comments or questions, please post them here

Until next post!

Is there functionality for Management Reporter with the Web Client? Specifically if it is deployed to Azure?

Mariano Gomez said...

Functionality for Management Reporter comes from Management Reporter. You can always deploy the MR Server and any of its components on Azure provisioned servers. In particular, you can deploy the MR Web View component on a provisioned server running IIS. You will then setup an endpoint on Azure to access your web server.
