Proof that Dynamics GP is being extended – Future of Microsoft Great Plains

Fact Check: Proof that Microsoft Dynamics GP has a strong future for years to come.

The Future of Dynamics GP is mixed with ambiguity and uncertainty, (there is NO phase-out of GP), here are some proof points to help in your fact checking to support a #GPSTRONG Future.

GP Proof 1 - Microsoft Roadmap and Updated Lifecycle 2022 to 2028+. 
Installing any compatible Dynamics GP hotfix or tax release on Dynamics GP 2018 or Dynamics GP 2018 R2 will bring you to version 18.6 or later, which enacts the Modern Lifecycle Policy. There are no tax releases or hotfixes available for Dynamics GP 2018 or Dynamics GP 2018 R2 that would allow you to stay on the fixed lifecycle. Updated 05/17/2023

GP Proof 2 - Microsoft Dynamics GP 18.6 (GP 2024) was released on October 2, 2023  - Learn more about the New Dynamics GP features

GP Proof 3 - Microsoft Blog - Dynamics GP Support and Services - posted July 2021:  "The Lifecycle Roadmap shows dates well into the future, 2028 and beyond which indicates a longer confirmed date for Modern Lifecycle versus the Fixed Lifecycle versions."

GP Proof 4 - Fall 2022 - ERP Software blog in reaction what was said as a GP User Group conference.  Microsoft has provided a CLARIFICATION of a long future for GP "you can be confident in using Dynamics GP to run your business for years to come.." 

GP Proof 5 - October 2022 - Blog - Microsoft is fully committed to supporting our Dynamics GP customers for years to come

GP Proof 6 - October 2022 - LinkedIN Post from Mike Morton - Microsoft VP - Dynamics 365 Microsoft is fully committed to supporting our Dynamics GP customers. This will include new releases (e.g., 18.6, 18.7, 18.8, …) for the foreseeable future on the same timeline and schedule as we have done in the past several years, as outlined in the GP Modern Support Lifecycle.

GP Proof 8 - October 11, 2023 - Mike Morton at the Dynamics Community Summit (over 5,000 attendees) on-stage announced that there are no immediate plans for retiring Dynamics GP and that Microsoft expects a strong future for existing GP users.  (Dynamics GP roadmap to 2028+ is the same time frame for all other Microsoft Dynamics applications. Current roadmaps are all published to 2028)

GP Proof 9 - Summer 2023 - There was an announcement that new sales of Dynamics GP perpetual licenses will stop in 2025 and new sales of GP subscriptions will stop in 2026.  BUT, the same announcement confirmed that ALL EXISTING DYNAMICS GP clients will still be able to purchase additional users and perform upgrades etc, in accordance to the roadmap.
