Kirill Tatarinov spoke about how Windows Azure and Microsoft Dynamics was the ERP system for the Sochi games. He called this the “Era of the customer” Investments in Devices, and the Microsoft Cloud are a key area of focus for Microsoft. Microsoft Dynamics GP Customer City Harvest was on the main stage reviewing how this not for profit business helps over 2 million New Yorkers. They discussed how they use CRM online, with GP on premise to build a world class system with their limited IT budget.
Recently, I worked with a group that needed to make changes to the dates of some of their posted payables transactions. Of course, you can’t do that through the user interface, so it was SQL to the rescue.

I was recently asked regarding how Dynamics GP worked with Not for Profits, Microsoft has a whitepaper specifically for Not for Profit Accounting . This covers the following modules specifically for Not For Profits – Encumbrance Management allows obligations for goods, materials, and services that have been ordered but not received can identified and identified as “encumbered.” This module helps prevent overspending by ensuring that total actual expenditures plus related encumbrances (ordered goods, materials, or services) do not exceed budgeted amounts
