Azure Machine Learning General Availability

Microsoft has announced the General Availability of the Azure Machine Learning Service.

Additional new capabilities with today’s release include:

  • The ability to create a configurable custom R module, incorporate your own train/predict R-scripts, and add python scripts using a large ecosystem of libraries such as numpy, scipy, pandas, scikit-learn etc. You can now train on terabytes of data using “Learning with Counts”, use PCA or one-class SVM for anomaly detection, and easily modify, filter, and clean data using familiar SQLite.
  • Azure ML Community Gallery that allows you to discover & learn experiments, and share through Twitter and LinkedIn. You can purchase marketplace apps through an Azure subscription and consume finished web services for Recommendation, Text Analytics, and Anomaly Detection directly from the Azure Marketplace.
  • A step-by-step guide for the Data Science journey from raw data to a consumable web service to ease the path for cloud-based data science. We have added the ability to use popular tools such as iPython Notebook and Python Tools for Visual Studio along with Azure ML.

The ML Gallery looks especially cool, and should help expand the utilization of this service extensively. http://gallery.azureml.net/

Where is Menus for Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015?

David Meego - Click for blog homepageHello again

This article follows on from the Where is the Support Debugging Tool for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015? post from yesterday.

Back in May 2008 I was at the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Airlift in Fargo, ND, USA and was attending Developer Toolkit training run by Steve Gray.  On the last day of the training I came up with an idea which would allow menu navigation entries to be dynamically created and called via an API exposed to Visual Studio Tools. Encouraged by Steve and Leslie Vail I turned the concept into a prototype by the end of the day. Menus for Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP was born.

After discussions with the development and support teams, it was agreed that if I was to do all the development, documentation and testing work, that Menus for Visual Studio Tools could be released publically for developers to use.

The first build was released for Microsoft Dynamics GP version 10.0 in September 2008. The tool was only meant to be for version 10.0 as the plan was to provide similar functionality within the core product in the next release. Well, it turned out that other development work took priority and so I had to develop and release Menus for Visual Studio Tools for version 11.0 (GP 2010) in June 2010 and again later for version 12.0 (GP 2013 and GP 2013 R2) in December 2012.

Since I left Microsoft in October 2014, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 has been released and no one within Microsoft has updated Menus for Visual Studio Tools to work with the new version.

I know many of you want to know what the future of the tool is and when it will be available for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015.

Like the Support Debugging Tool, I am negotiating to gain ownership of the code so that I can update it for future versions. Working with the legal department of a huge organisation like Microsoft can be hard work and things take a long time. I am hoping to get an agreement in place soon.

Once I have control of the code again, it will be updated and rebadged as a product of Winthrop Development Consultants.

My plan at this stage is to offer the existing functionality at no charge.

If there is demand, I would like to extend the functionality to include integration with other system features of Microsoft Dynamics GP such as Home Page, Toolbars, Area Pages, Navigation Pane, Security, Lists, SmartLists, etc. For this advanced version, there will probably be a nominal annual subscription fee per site to cover the development costs.

So here is your chance to let me know if you want an advanced version and what “Dexterity only” functionality you want exposed to make it easier to develop code in Visual Studio. Please post comments with your thoughts.

Looking forward to your feedback.

David

Where is the Support Debugging Tool for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015?

David Meego - Click for blog homepageHello everyone

As most of you know I am the developer of the Support Debugging Tool for Microsoft Dynamics GP (SDT).

The SDT has been provided free of charge to Partners and Customers (via their partners) in the Dynamics community since its release in September 2008. The tool and its feature set have come a long way from the public release of build 9 for GP versions 8.0, 9.0 and 10.0.

Six years later in September 2014 I released the latest version of the tool: build 19 for GP versions 10.0, 11.0 (GP 2010) and 12.0 (GP 2013 & GP 2013 R2).

The day after I released build 19 I was given one month’s notice that I would be made redundant (laid off) by Microsoft.

Now, the Support Debugging Tool was and has always been my pet project. It took a lot of work to persuade the powers that be to allow it to be made publically available. All the development and most of the ideas have come from me, including design, coding, documentation, testing and support. Much of the vast number of hours of time invested have been my personal out of hours time.

While there had been discussion with both the Development and Support teams, there was never any real interest from them to make the tool more official. This is why you will be told that the tool is unsupported by Microsoft and not widely used by the support team. Even though it was originally created as a tool to help the support team debug problems… hence the name.

Now that I have left Microsoft, the tool is “in stasis”. It is still available for download, but there will not be any further development by Microsoft. That is why it is not available for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 yet.

So, the next question is “What is the future for the Support Debugging Tool?”.

The answer is that I have been negotiating with Microsoft, since I was told I would be leaving, to gain ownership of the code. Sadly, this process is taking much longer than I had hoped but progress is being made.

Once the agreement is finalised, the Support Debugging Tool will be updated and reborn as a product of Winthrop Development Consultants and sold for a nominal charge per site using an annual subscription model.

“But wait” you cry “It was free, why will there be a cost now?”

As I am no longer getting a salary from Microsoft, I need to be able to cover the costs of the continued development of the tool. I have lots of ideas to make the tool better, easier to use and more powerful and with your support and feedback will make a better tool for the community to help support and administer Microsoft Dynamics GP.

This change of ownership will also provide a great opportunity to change the name of the tool. For too long the word “Debugging” or even “Support” has scared people away from the tool. Even the initials, SDT, make people think about unmentionable diseases.

I have some ideas for a new name, but would love to your input. So all the people who always told me you don’t like the name, here’s you chance, post a comment with ideas for a new name.

Think of something that encompasses all the features which the tool can assist you with; logging, troubleshooting, resource info, security, screenshots, system reports, triggers, scripting (SQL and Dexterity), data transfer, pre upgrade checks and much more.

Looking forward to your feedback.

David

David is coming to Convergence 2015 in Atlanta

David Meego - Click for blog homepageThe Microsoft Dynamics Convergence blog recently posted an article about the extraordinary lineup of featured speakers for Microsoft Convergence 2015 Atlanta on 16th to 19th March 2015.

What it failed to mention is the “Dynamics Duo” would be back in person to spread knowledge and fun amongst the Microsoft Dynamics GP community.

Yes, that’s right “Rock Stars” David and Mariano are back together to present at Convergence. After missing the 2013 and 2014 conferences, I decided that now that I was my own boss, I would make the big trip across the pond to Atlanta to catch up with everyone and present a session or two with Mariano.

Convergence2015

Mariano posted on this decision a little while ago, before I went on leave:

It will be great to see everyone, especially those of you who were not at reIMAGINE 2014 in Fargo last November.

Make sure you come to our session: CS15G024: Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 customization.

Mariano And David
