I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in Dynamics GP
Packt Publishing was gracious enough to send me a complimentary evaluation copy of Victoria's new book, and it is amazing how much content she has packed into just over 300 pages.
The book is an excellent guide to the entire Dynamics GP implementation process--not just the installation, or configuration, or module specific features, but also the planning and design process that is essential to properly implementing GP.
Obviously, a 300 page book can't exhaustively cover every possible Dynamics GP topic. The book covers the "core" Dynamics GP modules, such as GL, AP, AR, SOP and POP, but doesn't cover the many other Dynamics GP modules available, as that would result in an encyclopedia. And you will still need to know, or research on your own, what a SQL transaction log backup is and how you should structure your chart of accounts. And, of course, there is still a lot of knowledge and expertise required to determine how many of the hundreds of Dynamics GP options should be configured to meet a specific customer's business requirements--which is why there are many GP partners and consultants available throughout the world who have spent years working with Dynamics GP.
But for anyone looking to have a single, comprehensive Dynamics GP handbook, I would strongly recommend purchasing a copy of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Implementation. It's a great, low cost investment to help you get more value out of your Dynamics GP solution.
If you're even considering implementing or re-implementing any version of Dynamics GP, this publication is a must have. This one will definitely be part of my GP toolkit.
In my opinion, Victoria Yudin has managed to cram all of the information necessary to properly implement Dynamics GP 2010 into this book, "Dynamics GP 2010 Implementation". The material covers everything from start to finish - from building your implementation team through to post-implementation follow up and training.
Chapters 1-4 cover the essential planning exercises you will need to follow in order to successfully implement your ERP system. I like the fact that she spent the time to outline some of the intricacies of Dynamics GP (such as how, for a SQL-based application, it doesn't use SQL Server effectively as it could, and why), and how the Dexterity runtime works. Also of benefit in this section is a good guide on how to select the right people for your implementation team, and a sizing guide for how to select the right level of hardware for your deployment.
Chatper 5 covers the actual steps to perform the installation and some common configuration items. I was pleasantly surprised that the whole installation stack was covered - in other words, the book walks the reader through the steps of installing SQL Server. For more advanced or experienced implementers, this may be old hat, but for the "new" implementer this information could be very valuable.
Chapters 6-8 walk through module configuration - the main subledgers (AP, AR, SOP, POP, etc) and the GL. Each section is well written and contains enough detail for a "new" implementer to configure the system the appropriate way.
Chapter 9 covers populating master data using Integration Manager. While I personally am not a fan of Integration Manager, for the "new" implementer it is worthwhile to understand how it works and what it can do.
Chapter 10 covers training, and lists out some common tools that may be of use post-deployment. Echoing the rest of this book, this area is a good mix of suggestions and hard facts to aid the implementer.
Overall, I was impressed by the depth and breadth of material covered. One thing I would have liked to see more of is "tips and tricks" or "lessoned learned" by the author. As someone with many years of experience, I am sure the author has come across a number of unique or interesting scenarios, and adding some of those to the book would have added a little more flavour to the book.
I also would have loved to see a "what's new" section which highlights some of the main changes between GP 10 and GP 2010. Although the book appears slanted towards those performing a new implementation of the Dynamics GP system, having insight into what is new about this particular release of the product, as compared to the previous version, would have been helpful as well.
In all, I'd rate the book as an 8/10. Well written, comprehensive, and with enough breadth and depth that I didn't feel like I was missing anything critical in order to properly implement Dynamics GP 2010.
