The All New TWMBSSDGPPPSATPLCPAT4MSDGP… without me !

For quite a few weeks/months there were uncertainty about the outcome of the SDT (aka Support Debugging Tool) for Dynamics GP. As my good friend David Musgrave had been left in the dust by Microsoft due to the high speed of the all new GP 2015 not being able to wait on the aging SDT, nobody knew would happen in the future.

I was holding my breath hopping that David would be able to #FreeTheCode of the SDT from the #WorldCompany Microsoft, as it was mostly his baby that he raised over the years, though while he was working for Microsoft, but still genetically the creator of the SDT. My guess that Microsoft would loose the tie quite quickly as they had no idea how to decipher the spaghetti code behind that tool (even Edward Snowden was not able to)… and finally a few weeks back David confirmed (just before Convergence 2015) that he got the intellectual property of the code back with some exclusive rights to use.

Then shortly after he started a poll to rebirth the SDT under a new name and was gathering all kinds of suggestions, including my own for the “Dynamics GP Power Tools” which gathered a whooping 45%… So hope was there that we would soon get a brand new tool that would hold on par with the “high speed” GP 2015 and its super-duper Web Client..

Oh Boy ! how foolish was I … Today David announced against all odds that the “Next Generation” of SDT would be called TWMBSSDGPPPSATPLCPAT4MSDGP !  Yes you read that right… be prepared for some tongue twisting. How can someone expect to be able to remember that name ? don’t even think about spelling it out ? Imagine yourself talking to your partner on the phone and asking for the “The Winthrop Microsoft Business Solutions Support Debugging Great Plains Pro Power System Administrator Toolbox Pack Library Control Panel Assistant Tool for Microsoft Dynamics GP”. It’s likely partner will have hung the phone up before you even ended talking…

And that’s why I decided to speak up and use my brand new freshly awarded status as Dynamics GP MVP and my influential position as @GPUG All Star, to encourage everyone that is using the old SDT and frantically waiting on the new offspring to openly boycott David’s product… No one should be fool enough to get talked into using such a product with an un-pronounceable name.

Please spread your voice out on Twitter and the community blogs & forums to stand up against such a stupidity and convince David to get a more reasonnable name. Use hashtags like #FreeDavidsCode, #MSDynGPofApril1st and #MVPBustingSDT.

Until next post,
