Real Demo Data Needed – Can Your Company Help?

The Microsoft Dynamics GP Marketing Team is looking for a customer that would allow us to use their data as a future Demo Data set. Now, we’re looking for some items that are pretty specific so that we can more
easily “genericize” their data (make it so that there is no personal/corporate data that would be from their existing system), so it’s a challenging search, but if we find the right customer, we’ll give them one free pass to Convergence 2013 in New Orleans in March!

So, what are we looking for?

  • We are looking for a smaller company – 1-10 users preferred.  20 users maximum.
  • We’re looking for a company that focuses on both service and sales of items.  Maybe a small consulting firm that also sells software?  That’d be ideal, but could be another type of consulting or sales (small store) as well.
  • We’re hoping to have a low quantity of inventory items, because of the trouble in converting them.  Prefer 20 part numbers minimum, but under 100 part numbers, but would consider up to 500 part numbers.
  • It’d also be helpful to have a low number of vendors and customers.  I’m more open to the maximums, but we’d want at least 20 vendors and customers.  Would prefer under 100 of them (each).
  • Need at least two full years of data, would prefer 30 months (2 ½ years) of data.

Again, we will strip the data of identifiable information and put in our own part numbers, vendors, customers, descriptions, etc.  It’s really the transactional data that I need – real data that will help make our BI story “pop” during demos.  Prefer a growing company, if we can find one.

What I’d like to get back from anyone interested:

 

  • Name of Company
  • Contact Info (email / phone)
  • Company’s Industry and Description of Business
  • # of Part Numbers
  • # of Vendors
  • # of Customers
  • Months of data
  • # of GP Users

 

What we’ll give you?  A free pass to Convergence!

Please fill out the above information request and email me directly at jay.manley@microsoft.com

Thanks much!

Jay Manley – Sr. Marketing Manager

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 on Windows Azure: Subscription Process

In my previous article, I provided an intro on the necessary elements required to deploy Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 on Windows Azure – see Deploying Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 on Azure – Introduction. Now, I begin a series of articles showing step by step how to configure the platform.

The first thing you will need to do is setup a subscription. As it turns out, Microsoft is running a 90-day free trial, how about that? The free trial allows you some good room to get a couple servers required for setting up a Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 session host and the Web Client. Storage is set currently at 35 GB, so I believe we have plenty room to play.

So on we go by clicking the Free Trial option, which takes us to the Sign In page. Authentication is done via your Windows Live account, so one is effectively required.

Don’t worry! Even if you haven’t signed into Windows Azure before, you will be prompted to follow the account creation process. You will now be able to see what’s being offered as part of your 90-day free trial. Ah, don’t forget your credit card. You will not be charged as your initial spending limit is defaulted to $0 during the free trial period. A credit card is also required to verify your identity.

Upon clicking the arrow to continue with the account creation and subscription process, you are now faced with the credit card entry window. Very simple! Pop out your shiny favorite card name here and just follow the data entry fields. Click the next button to validate the credit card info and complete the account setup and subscription.

Once the credit card is validated, you are good to go. You will now be sent back to the Azure home page where you can manage your account and go to the administrative portal. My next article will focus on how to provision the machines needed to setup our Microsoft Dynamics GP environment.

Until next post!
