Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 Coming Later this Year

Service Pack 2 (SP2) of Microsoft's Dynamics GP 2013 enterprise resource planning (ERP) product will arrive in the fourth quarter of this year, Microsoft said Thursday.

SP2 will become available to Microsoft partners through the PartnerSource portal, according to a blog post attributed to Errol Schoenfish, director of product management at Microsoft. The blog post refers to Dynamics GP 2013's "H2" update, but a Microsoft spokesperson clarified that "H2" is just another term for SP2.

Dynamics GP 2013 was last updated in April, with the release of SP1. The product hit general availability last December.

According to Schoenfish's blog, SP2's enhancements will include smart lists, a Doc Attach feature and Web client releases for several Series.

The release of Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 will also coincide with an update to Microsoft's Business Analyzer app, which can be used in conjunction with Microsoft ERP products. The app lets users access SQL Server Reporting Services reports from a Windows 8 PC or tablet without logging on to the ERP solution itself.

The Business Analyzer app, which is available for download from Microsoft Windows Store, works with reports built for Dynamics GP 2013, Dynamics AX 2012 R2 and Dynamics SL 2011 FP1. The forthcoming update will include, among other things, support for Windows Phone 8 and the ability to pin reports to the Windows 8 start screen, according to Schoenfish.
