This blog is dedicated to my work in the field of Microsoft’s ERP system, Dynamics Great Plains (aka Dynamics GP), and some of the products that are gravitating around GP, like SSRS, 3rd party products from ISV’s and other Microsoft products related to GP.

My life with Dynamics GP started in 2003 when I was hired as a consultant to review some manufacturing plant processes and reports, at this time made with Crystal Report and Excel 2000. I’ve a fairly long experience with the MS Office suite and reporting tools, my IT life being started way back in the early 80’s, when most of the computers were only prompting a blinking cursor or something like “C:\>”…

In 2003 I knew almost nothing about ERP systems, but the name and what they were supposed to be used for. I got my hands dirty with Dynamics GP (starting with 7.0) during the following 5-6 years and became quite knowledgeable in the system’s architecture and back end, at the point that our MBS partner at the time often didn’t bothered to try their sales pitch and started to recognize the fact they had to deal with someone they couldn’t fool us with a product that was not doing what we needed.

In 2009 after the company decided to not pursue their journey with this ERP system (it was a very political decision…) from Microsoft, I decided it was time for me to move on and got called by a head-hunter that was looking for a GP administrator for a high-tech company in town… The timing was perfect and I never regretted the decision.

In 2015 I finally reached the ultimate consecration for any IT Geek, I was awarded by Microsoft the MVP status for my contribution in the Dynamics GP community. I hope to be able to maintain this status many years, as this is a tight knit group (less than 20 MVP’s for GP around the world).

My roots in IT are in the application development which goes back sometime in the 80’s when I started to play with MS-Basic on DOS, and then later moved on to a ‘real’ job as an IBM Mainframe 3090 programmer analyst. At this time it was mainly COBOL and DB2 that was used as language and database system. I’ve got a long journey to be where I’m today and I’m happy to have found a new ‘home’ in the MS Dynamics GP community.

I want to quote some other GP blogger as I find this very true 🙂 :

“I know what I know and don’t know most of what everyone else knows.  I am happy with that and see this Wide Open Web as the answers for us all.”

This defines most of the bloggers in the GP community I think and I fully endorse this too.
