Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016:  Forecaster discontinued

Microsoft Forecaster discontinued

With the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016, Microsoft Forecaster will not be available or supported for new Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 customers.

Effective May 1, 2017, Microsoft Forecaster will no longer be offered on any of the Microsoft Dynamics GP price lists. The Protected List Price (PLP) for Microsoft Forecaster on Business Ready Licensing (BRL) and Module Based Licensing (MBL) customer accounts will be reduced to zero resulting in lower Enhancement Plan fees going forward. There will be no PLP reduction for Perpetual customers as unlimited Microsoft Forecaster Users were included in the Extended Pack.

Microsoft will continue to support Forecaster, a component of Dynamics GP, through the support end date of the purchased version of the GP product. Forecaster will be supported per the existing system requirements.

Where to now for current Forecaster customers?
Existing Forecaster customers can continue to use the functionality but should consider replacement solutions from existing Independent Solution Providers (ISV’s). Please reach out to Dynamics Africa or your support partner for guidance.
