Press Release Body: High end version of Great Plains Software Dynamics was known
under the name of Great Plains eEnterprise. In turn eEnterprise is successor of
Great Plains Dynamics C/S+. eEnterprise licensing concept allowed you as
eEnterprise customer to purchase such advanced modules as Manufacturing,
Intercompany Processing, Customer Vendor Consolidation, Unlimited level of System
manager users, Unlimited number of Payroll employees, and other nice options. When
Microsoft acquired Great Plains Software and the rules making prerogative came to
Microsoft Business Solutions, Microsoft proclaimed so-called Project Green, later on
renamed into Microsoft Dynamics project, where Great Plains was included into
Dynamics family as Microsoft Dynamics GP. At the same time the coined term of
eEnterprise was played down and deemphasized, in fact turned to Microsoft Dynamics
GP Professional
Last version of eEnterprise was 7.0 and for now it is no longer supported by
Microsoft Business Solutions. For you as eEnterprise user it may mean that you have
to consider upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 or 10.0. Let's review eEnterprise
upgrade topics and move on:
1. SQL Server Platform. eEnterprise was available on MS SQL Server 6.5, 7.0 and
2000 only since the time, when Dynamics CS+ 5.0 was discontinued on Ctree and
Btrieve. If you migrate to SQL 2000 GP 10.0 or 9.0 you can upgrade your SQL to
2. Downgrading licensing. If you feel that your company actually did downsizing
process since its better financial years, when you did implement Great Plains
eEnterprise. If this is the case - it should be considered as normal business
development, and you should excersize the option to downgrade your GP licenses level
with Microsoft Business Solutions Dynamics GP
3. Getting Licenses. Here you have to follow general procedure, meaning that if you
are not current with Microsoft Business Solutions annual enhancement program, you
have to go through reenrollment process, and the longer you were out of status, the
higher is the penalty to allow you to be reenrolled and get current ERP software
4. Upgrading procedure. It should be very straight forward and your GP VAR should
advice you on the version update path. Assuming that you are eEnterprise 7.0, you
should upgrade to GP Professional 7.5 (matter of several minutes or seconds, as code
base and table structure is almost the same for these two versions). Then you
should move to GP Pro 9.0 and from there, assuming that you have applied GP 10.0 SP
1 or higher you can move to version 10.0
