Security Considerations for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 SQL Reporting Service Reports
While most Microsoft Dynamics GP system administrators are accustomed to securing access to the ERP system data using both built in and custom security roles and tasks, a completely different security model must be employed when using the SQL Reporting Services Reports. Access to reports within SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) is controlled using Active Directory (AD) authentication of AD users or groups. Additionally, by default, the data behind the standard GP reports is secured by SQL database roles that need to be mapped to AD users and/or groups. The Microsoft Dynamics® GP 2010 SQL Server Reporting Services Guide provides a decent step by step guide of how to setup security for the reports based on predefined database roles that are created during the deployment process. Below is the listing of database roles: DYNAMICS database rolesCOMPANY database roles rpt_all user rpt_all user rpt_executive rpt_executive rpt_human resource administrator rpt_human resource administrator rpt_payroll […]
Slash Processing Time by 50% Using Microsoft Dynamics GP
Just curious, how many of you can relate to this? A customer of mine had a common problem: old, outdated software and the business processes and bottlenecks to go with them. Originally, they set out to upgrade their old ERP system, hoping to maximize the investment made in what they already had. Eventually, they realized that the system that got them to where they are would not get them to where they wanted to be. Enter Microsoft Dynamics GP Dynamics GP has enabled them to improve response time to customers and reduce overhead costs, and they have obtained a level of visibility on their order process that would have been impossible otherwise.

The Learning Organization: Retain and Grow Your Knowledge Capital with Microsoft SharePoint
For most industries and markets, it seems fair to assume that an organization’s success is largely contingent upon its knowledge capital. As an organization’s knowledge capital is composed by the knowledge and skills that reside within each and every employee, as well as the extent to which organizational knowledge is shared and utilized, the challenge for any organization is to secure, maintain and efficiently utilize the knowledge resources of its entire work force. Employing a knowledgeable and skilled work force is obviously a major priority for any organization, but ensuring that knowledge and experiences are shared throughout the organization and retained for future retrieval is what sets a true learning organization apart from its competitors. Employees Come and Go – Knowledge Should Stay While solid retention strategies indeed do help retain employees and minimize employee turnover, employees do come and go. It’s a fact. With the right applications and systems […]
How Often Should I Backup and How?
Your data is a valuable asset. Data is (or should be) the foundation for sound decision-making, planning and strategic management and it is vital for your day-to-day operations. Statistics show that system failures do occur and accordingly data corruption and loss is inevitably. While preventing system breakdown and data loss is a main priority for any IT department, ensuring a smooth and efficient recovery process in case of data loss is of equal importance. While you could be one of the lucky ones who will never experience a problem, it is more likely than not that you at some point will face the unfortunate circumstance of having to recover lost or damaged data. It is best not to gamble with the odds.

Preparing Your FRx Data for Migration to Management Reporter
As more GP users get settled into Dynamics GP 2010 and/or begin refreshing their aging server environments, we’re beginning to see more migrations from FRx to Management Reporter. Management Reporter includes a Migration Wizard to automate this task, but because the two systems are structurally quite different on the back end, it is really important to clean and prepare your FRx reports before trying to get them over to Management Reporter. You should carefully follow the entire Migration Guide document to familiarize yourself with the requirements and process, but in a nutshell the following steps are the ones you’ll need to prepare for: Remove unused companies, specification sets, and building blocks (rows, catalogs, columns, trees) from FRx that are not in use or shouldn’t be migrated. Delete the demo companies, any reports pointed at the demonstration specification set and then the demonstration spec set itself. Delete any .f32 files in […]
