Sure Step 2012 has officially Launched!
Well folks, I'm live from #AXUG Summit 2011, getting ready for some great sessions, including the one' I will be leading this afternoon on SSRS and AX. There are some great events that are going to take place, including the Expo's, as well as the keynote speech that includes Microsoft's Kees Hertogh & Sri Srinivasan.
One thing I wanted to point out was the official release of Sure Step 2012. You can access this information via CustomerSource or PartnerSource from the following link: Sure Step 2012 Launch Page.
From the notes:
"Sure Step 2012 is now available with updated content and services, primarily focusing on the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 release. Updated content includes:
Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Upgrade – tools and templates to support an Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 upgrade.
Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Implementation tools and templates including Fit/Gap analysis worksheet, estimator tool, requirements questionnaire, security configuration requirements template, and other valuable templates."
There is also an update for CRM 2011 as well with this release. Prior to this launch, Sure Step was not actually aware of the new AX 2012 upgrade process, or a lot of the other new concepts for new implementations as well. Everyone should dive in and become very familiar with Sure Step 2012. I will try and point out, over the next several weeks, some key differences between it and the last release.
It's very important to note, that Sure Step is the method for implementing Microsoft Dynamics, however it gives a foundation in which projects are shaped from. Not all documents, for example apply the same, to every single project. Like the name implies, Dynamics so projects must be that implement Microsoft Dynamics.
Well that's all for right now, I hope to see some of you out here, and if not keep in mind you can always join AXUG, and look for information about next years Summit.
Till next time!
