Dynamics SL 2011 Coming Q2

Midsize ERP product will feature role-specific dashboards.

Microsoft Dynamics SL 2011 will be released in the second quarter of next year, the company announced last month.

The enterprise resource planning product -- one of four in the Microsoft Dynamics product line -- is marketed toward midsize organizations. It's designed to support project accounting, order management and inventory-control functions. The product will feature a customizable role-tailored user experience that shows what's important to each specific user. Role-specific dashboards also can be created. Information can be searched using "50 predesigned search options," which Microsoft describes as its "quick query" capability.

The search-history capability in the product works much like the function seen in a Web browser. Users can click to see past screens they've visited and then jump to them. Print-screen images can be made and shared with others. Data can be exported to Excel for analysis using that program. Microsoft added a multiple log-in capability that allows users to work with different entities, then compare the data between them.
