Mergers & Acquisitions in Microsoft Dynamics GP
In today’s business environment the need for mergers, acquisitions and dispositions is becoming increasingly more important to drive and sustain the growth desired by company stakeholders and executive teams. In some cases, these types of transactions can present extraordinarily complex accounting circumstances as well as difficulties associated with integrating new entities into the existing financial system. When faced with these situations the following questions can arise: Is it possible to perform multiple fiscal year-end processes for a single year (one pre-acquisition/disposition and one post-acquisition/disposition)? Is there a method to combine data from multiple Dynamics GP company databases in order to have unified information going forward? Well, the answer to the above is a resounding YES! Many of the utilities available in the Microsoft Dynamics Professional Services Tools Library (PSTL) can aid with these scenarios. Now for the best part, it is free with your annual Microsoft Dynamics software licensing. Some of […]

How to Configure Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 to Use a Host Header and an SSL Cert
Most CRM deployments require using both host headers and SSL certificates. As small a requirement as it may seem, making this happen can be a bit tricky and I’ve personally had my share of late nights here and there just to get this to work. As a result, I’ve decided to put together this short article to document the steps required to resolve this issue, and at the same time be of help to anyone ‘out there’ who might encounter the same problem. A typical error that comes with using multiple host headers for the same port (or the attempt thereof) is as follows: System.ServiceModel.ServiceActivationException: The service ‘/orgName/XRMServices/2011/Organization.svc’ cannot be activated due to an exception during compilation. The exception message is: This collection already contains an address with scheme http. There can be at most one address per scheme in this collection. If your service is being hosted in IIS […]

Enhancements can be found throughout the product, across all components including the Database Engine, Analysis Service, SSIS, Reporting and Master Data Services. Like previous releases, SQL 2012 brings along faster performance, great availability, improved data exploration, more consistent data, and optimized productivity. So what does all this mean? And more importantly, should you upgrade? The new release of SQL Server comes with many new and cool features. So many that it is outside the scope of this article to go through them all, but here are a few highlights: Always On: A new feature that improves database mirroring allowing you to fail over multiple databases instead of individually.  SQL Server Data Tools: SQL Server Management Studio now runs in […]

SharePoint and the F.O.S.H. Life – Human Resources (part 1 of 4)
F.O.S.H. Stands for Finance, Operations, Sales and Human Resources and denotes four areas in an organization where SharePoint can have an immediate impact. SharePoint is a tool that can be tailored to any business to enhance communication and automate repetitive business processes within and across departments. One real life example from the “H” in F.O.S.H. is the employee life cycle. SharePoint can be used to streamline all of the Human Resources processes while enhancing communication between HR and other departments - from the moment a position is requested until an employee leaves the company. Open Position When a manager realizes the need to open a position, s/he should consider answering the following questions: Why is this position open? What are the qualifications you are looking for? Who approves the opening? Who will be involved with candidate selection? And who will this position report to? Using SharePoint, the position requisition process […]
