GPUG Amplify: It Was Amped Up!

amp7821

May 23 – 25th the first every GPUG Amplify conference for Dynamics GP end users was held in Anaheim, CA. Amplify is the new customer centric event to replace Convergence and it was a hit! It was a great event with over 400 people in attendance including over a dozen customers from the InterDyn BMI family. The Microsoft Dynamics GP and GPUG teams did an excellent job of putting together an educational event on very short notice.

Dynamics GP Users discovered the latest solution innovations from Microsoft and the over 20 ISV’s in attendance. There were new GP product updates announced and everyone was able to spend time connecting with the Microsoft team to learn about product roadmaps and provide direction on the future of Dynamics GP.

The learning sessions were varied across Dynamics GP with sessions on collections management, Power BI, Excel integration and ISV sessions. InterDyn BMI’s Mark Jensen presented a session on best practices for using Accounts Receivable.

Among the many announcements about Dynamic GP 2016 was that GP2016 R2 is in process and expected to release in the second half of this calendar year. The Dynamic GP team keeps moving along and the cadence of rapid releases every 6 – 7 months will continue into the future. There were a few announcement regarding reporting solutions with the biggest being about Management Reporter.

  • Microsoft stated that Management Reporter for Dynamics GP will not be receiving any new features after GP2016 but will continue to be supported and shipped for 5 years with future releases of Microsoft Dynamics GP.
  • Going forward Microsoft announced a partnership with Jet Reports to create Jet Express for Excel. This new reporting solution will be available free to all Microsoft Dynamics GP customers in June.  InterDyn BMI will share updates soon on this new development.

The InterDyn BMI team and our customers who attended had a great time in southern California. Amplify demonstrated the passion of the Dynamics GP community and its commitment to education, networking and advancement. We invite you to come to Amplify 2017 next year!

Amplify is an event for the Dynamics GP community created to show off what is coming in GP 2016 (due May 1st) and to give users a sneak peek of what Microsoft has in store down the road. The development team at Microsoft continues a rapid cadence, releasing new code every 8-9 months so it’s time to show off some new stuff at this great event.

Be among the first to see Dynamics GP 2016, connect with Microsoft, learn about product Roadmaps, attend pre and post conference Academy training, network with other GP users and more. 

“By the start of Amplify, there will have been two major code releases since Convergence 2015: GP 2015 R2 and GP 2016,” explains Bob McAdam, Director of GPUG. “With the elimination of Convergence from the event list, Microsoft has not really had a platform to present these new releases. The development company has come to us with a laundry list of things they plan to show off at Amplify and we’ve assembled a really nice agenda that will give attendees an understanding of what is coming down the pipeline.”

In addition to the Expo Hall filled with GP ISVs and over 500 expected attendees, you won’t want to miss out on everything that the robust Amplify sessions will have to offer:

  • What’s New in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, GP 2015 R2, and GP 2016: Core Financials and HR/Payroll
  • What’s New in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, GP 2015 R2, and GP 2016: Distribution Modules
  • What’s New in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, GP 2015 R2, and GP 2016: Everything Else
  • Review & Discussion of Latest Dynamics GP Roadmap
  • Brand New HTML5-friendly Dynamics GP Web Client
  • Review of the Latest Improvements (CUs) with Management Reporter
  • Dynamics GP Support Desk Sessions
  • An Onsite Support Desk in Anaheim to Answer Inquiries

What is the difference between Amplify and the UG Summit this fall? 

To kick off the week at Amplify, we are hosting an exclusive InterDyn BMI “LetsLearn Live” gathering. We want to bring our GP clients together to get acquainted, learn from another and get updates from the BMI team before the conference begins. Learn more
